While on Vacation in Stowe Vermont, the bed and breakfast I was staying at had a flyer in their lobby for the Stowe Lantern Tours which are one hour long and show historical places downtown and the ghost stories behind them. Being a history buff, and loving a good ghost story my fiance and I just had to go on a tour. We met at the Visitor’s Center on Main Street which is right next to the Town Hall. Shawn our guide gave each person in the group a lantern and explained to us his background, being a former history teacher, a former sports coach, and now a ghost hunter while enjoying retirement. We walked to the cemetery where the story of the most famous ghost in the area was explained to us at her grave. Next we were given a history lesson about the mysteries behind some of the local churches and schools before being brought to an inn for another ghost story and the general store for a very cool part of local history. The tour lasted just over an hour and is good for kids too. He does the tours on Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday nights from 8pm-9pm. I definitely will take the tour again with friends and family the next time I go to Stowe. Of course, after learning about Emily’s Bridge, I just had to go over there myself and see what all the chilling fuss is about!!!

I had such a good time on the tour–I wish I had known about it years ago! I learned so much about Burlington. I lived in VT for part of my childhood, but somehow ‘missed’ that the city had such a haunted past. It was great to learn so many spooky facts about places I’ve frequented most of my life. I recommend this tour for any ghost lover, history lover or Burlington fan! I read her book, Haunted Burlington, and there was very little overlap between the tour and the book–a nice surprise. I plan on going on her other tours.

Don’t even bother buying tickets ahead unless you are absolutely sure the weather will cooperate. I bought 4 tickets for my family which they would not refund even though it was pouring so hard the 12 year old grandchild was shivering. The radar showed rain for the next 3 hours. They have a no cancellation policy. …… Just spoke to the manager again and they still won’t refund.

I have always wanted to do a ghost tour and Williamsburg and chose this one as it was supposedly geared toward adults. I was hoping to hear the haunted history of Williamsburg, see some of the hot spots and be informed and entertained. Unfortunately, this tour had none of those things. The positive, our guide was enthusiastic. And that’s the kindest thing I can say about her. She jumped from subject to subject without ever really saying much of anything at all. Her historical “facts” were tenuous, at best. Her grasp of the paranormal was even more tenuous. She spent a great deal of time and energy telling us we should be scared but never gave any kind of reason as to why. The ghost stories were the “heard it from a friend who heard it from his best friend’s 2nd cousin twice removed’s neighbors aunt” kind of story. Unfortunately, I mostly found myself tuning out as there really wasn’t anything to listen to. Even those stories in which she managed to make herself coherent were so rife with inaccuracies, it was hard to take them even remotely seriously. Mostly, we felt like 3 adults watching a camp counselor sitting around a campfire, flashlight under the chin, telling bad ghost stories to 9 year olds. Whatever this tour was, aside from the fact that there were no children, it clearly wasn’t geared toward adults. The only “extreme” thing about this tour was the price. Not that it was expensive, but it is more expensive than the regular tour but I don’t feel that it was worth the price. Next time, I’ll choose another company and another tour. I really wouldn’t recommend this to anyone.

While the tour was well put together and the tour guide was very knowledgable and informative, it was definitely more of a history lesson than a ghost tour. If you’re looking for an exciting and creepy walk through some haunted placed as me and my group of friends were, this isn’t really it. A good time if you’re a family with kids and want to learn about historic Williamsburg. We ended up ditching the tour for our own walk through the cemetery and around some of the haunted houses.

Unfortunately, I never had the opportunity to experience this ghost tour. I tried calling in advance for tickets but no one ever answered the phone. I called quite a few times within 2 days and the answering machine came on every time. The message on the machine also says not to leave a message. I was so disappointed since I was looking forward to doing the tour. Guess I will have to look elsewhere.

Colonial Ghosts

About

The Value. Our historic ghost walk of Williamsburg goes to more locations than any other ghost tour in town. Our standard tour is 90 minutes long compared with 60 minutes from the competition, and we tell stories that others do not! We go deeper into exploring the ghost stories of the College of William and Mary, the first University in the US.
SCARE ALERT: Colonial Ghosts Êhistoric ghost walk of Williamsburg is not designed for everybody! ItÕs designed by adults for adults. ÊKids enjoy the tour, but we do not let them attend for free, and we do not water it down because of children. Yes, some kids get really scared. That just means weÕre doing our job right! We do offer special child-themed private tours.

Do not do this if you cannot walk for an hour, or you are looking for real ghosts or real action. 5 stars because this was great for the kids (8-12). It was a good 1-hour NIGHT activity for children, at a reasonable price. There were other younger children that seemed to enjoy it as well.

Listening to some guy tell ghost stories…. I went here cause my daughter wanted to take a tour on her birthday… You walk around listening to the guy as he walks from house to house… Yawn, the stories got old fast… I got out my video camera to record for my daughter and was told by the guide to stop recording, he said because of copyright issues… I said ‘You got to be kidding’, he said ‘ No, and put the camera away’ … Even my daughter was very disappointed in the tour and the idiot guide… Won’t Êever consider going back….

One of our highlights of our visit to Williamsburg. Great stories and very informative guides. The tour gave us a better glimpse into the world of Williamsburg. Highly recommended!

We took the night ghost walking tour with 2 adults and 2 boys aged 13. It was fantastic. We didn’t have time to do a big historical tour. This was our only tour we had time for while visiting Williamsburg. Our guide new this and gave us so much history information. The kids weren’t bored because of all the ghostly tails. I think they were all true but my husband remains a skeptic. The tour is prompt and last about 1-1/2 hours. If going to Williamsburg this a must do. FUN FOR ALL!

Spooks and Legends Haunted Tours

About

WHY CHOOSE A GHOST TOUR with SPOOKS AND LEGENDS?
Because it’s the best tour in town! Just ask any one of our guests and they will tell you. It’s the most unique tour around. We offer costumed, in character tour guides and do not fill our tours with history. It’s all about the true ghost sightings that town residents, employees, and guests experience themselves. When you sign up for a Spooks and Legends tour, it’s a real ghost tour. If you want history, choose another tour because the rest offer history with a few short ghost stories, many of which are not even true. Ours are. That’s a fact! When you book with us, you get real, true, scary ghost stories–not historical dates and fiction.

I did this walking tour with my husband and some friends. We had such a great time learning about some of the the stories that happened in the area. It was also great because we had a small group, so we were able to get to talk our tour guide a lot and ask questions. She was very accommodating to me especially, because I’m hard of hearing, and when I told her, she made sure to speak loudly so that I could hear clearly. I loved that our tour guide really got into her character and dressed in period clothing. That made it that much more fun. She’s a wealth of knowledge and really knows her stuff. Besides all that, it’s pretty cool to be able to walk around Colonial Williamsburg at night, when there’s less people out.

Lowest Review

We attended the Witches tour and the Ghost tour on two separate nights. Both tours were not that impressive but were vastly different. The Witches tour, the guy didn’t really know what he was talking about and at the Ghost Tour, the woman went into full character and even called photography ‘sketching.’ If you are going to go on either tour, get a groupon.

Fun and informative! A great way to see downtown, and a fun taste of the town’s history and mining culture. All done through spooky lens. Sarah was a knowledgeable and entertaining guide. Thanks for the times PC Ghost Tours

Worst. Tour. Ever. It’s not even a ghost tour. Its a crappy history tour. You walk up to the top of main street and stand on the street looking at buildings while the guide tells bad stories. For our tour it was snowing pretty strongly. So we ended up cold, wet, and disappointed. We left early because it was so bad. And, the stories the guide tells don’t even match the stories on the website. Not to mention they wouldn’t even scare a toddler. Wish I could get my money back! Don’t waste yours!

I bought a groupon for my family and me and we took the Outer Reaches Tour. We all enjoyed it and we plan on trying out the other tours in the future. I would recommend using a groupon if you can because I don’t think it’s worth the price they normally charge of $25 per adult ticket. The groupon made it about half price. We had the Preacher of Truth as our guide and he did very well. He was good at telling the stories, interacted well with everyone, and he was also funny. This is not a tour that will terrify you but it was still a little spooky and a fun night out. Visiting the remains of Ted Bundy’s house was the creepiest part. Overall I do recommend this specific tour and guide but I bet the rest of the tours and guides are good as well.

Lowest Review

The tour was okay. The information that was relayed was mild. We stood outside buildings instead of going inside, and looking at a building is a bit of a waste of time. The night we went there was so much traffic, that the bus left late, was grid-locked in traffic for most of the tour, and yet returned on time for the next tour – essentially cutting us short on time. In one instance of learning about a haunted hotel, the bus driver was instructed to just drive by since we were running out of time. The was no information that could be substantiated, it was “I heard,” or “it’s been said.” We didn’t really hear any of the haunted Christmas stories as promised in the tour description. We drove by buildings, stood in the driveway, then drove to the next. not worth the money. We visited a small chocolate factory – that had nothing to do with Christmas.
