The Dead of Night Ghost Tour meets a ghostly guide who takes you, by candlelight, down the dark streets of Williamsburg. Immediately hear of the bodies, buried behind the homes and shops, throughout town. Strange stories of the secret vault, buried in the graveyard, and dead bodies still lying below the church floors, will creep you out! Speaking of the vault, move on to Mr. George Wythe’s house, where the old well still stands, today. Secrets of Thomas Jefferson’s visit down the well’s tunnel into the vault, proves the heavy conspiracy associated with this town. Mr. Wythe may just pop his ghostly face between the cracks of the shutters, opening and closing before your eyes. Dr. McKenzie will be happy to offer amputations or surgeries, should the need arise. He will be waiting, in skeletal form, trying to coax you in for some treatment. Hear of the old graves, where screams are still heard coming from the Palace, much less upsetting than the ones coming from the Peyton Randolph House, however. Head over to Virginia’s most haunted house, or, as some argue, the most haunted house in America! You will not believe the sounds and sights that have been experienced, while standing right in front of that eerie, dark and foreboding, empty house—or is it? Cameras do not always work in front of that house, however. Could it be ghosts? From that frightening location, head over to the pillory, where you may try it out, for yourself. Go ahead and put your head and hands in, but, be careful, as some have been locked in, before you. If you have the nerve, stay on for another fun hour. Follow your ghostly guide to the Witch Tour, right down the street, if you can escape the pillory, that is.
The Witches of Williamsburg Tour takes you to the darker end of town, where you will walk down hauntingly quiet and eerie streets. Hear of the many witch trials in Virginia, beginning in 1626. Learn of the strange and frightening ways they tested for witchcraft. Who exactly ate those witches cakes made of urine and rye meal? On your way to the old jail, listen carefully for the creeks of the Wagon of Death, over on old Nicholson Street. Could the Wagon be coming for criminals housed in the jail? The gallows are just down the road a bit, where cheering crowds are awaiting the gruesome hanging. Follow your guide to the very haunted Booker Tenement, and the Jones family graveyard, where young Ida is often seen hovering over the graves. Stories of Blackbeard and his headless body, conspiracy at the Raleigh Tavern, ghosts, 18th century trivia, add to the dark secrets of this town. Can’t decide which tour to attend? Try them both.
The Combo Tour Ticket will complete your night. What better way to spend an evening than with ghosts and witches, in the dark town of Williamsburg. These two tours are offered together, at a very low price. Each tour is unique. You will not want to miss a minute of the gory details.
