Had fate not intervened, it’s likely few people would’ve even heard of the sleepy little town called Yorktown. However destiny stepped in and forever etched Yorktown as a prominent place in American history, as it was here that the final Siege of Yorktown was fought, effectively putting an end to the American Revolution.Now more than 230 years after the battle, locals still hear the echo of musket shots in the night, cannons fire with such force that they shake their houses and spectral soldiers can be seen walking across the battlefields. It appears that the town’s inhabitants do not rest easy. Ticket purchase required before meeting the tour.

Extreme Ghost Tour

Under the cover of darkness, one of America’s oldest cities calls out to you. The residents of its’ colorfulpast whisper their darkest secrets from the other side. You’re left with a lot of questions, but not enough answers. The door is opened and you’re invited to come in. Join us on an official outdoor ghost hunting tour of Colonial Williamsburg! Over the course of 3 hours, our experienced tour guides will take you to some of the most notoriously haunted places in the city. You will learn of the history and hauntings of each site then you will be given the chance to conduct an actual paranormal investigation. Will you help us solve some ghostly mysteries of our own? With the help of our guides you will have the opportunity to learn about and use real devices used by paranormal investigators such as a Psb7 spiritbox, dowsing rods, REM pods, EMF meters and more. You will get to learn about real techniques and methods used on paranormal investigations and apply them to your own. For example the Estes Method, ever tried it? You put on a noise canceling headset while blindfolded. You plug your headset directly into a spirit box and before you know it, you’re the ultimate conduit for the spirits. Someone else will stand nearby and ask questions as they are unable to hear what’s being said. Your job as the conduit is to focus on the box as it scans through radio frequencies and find the answers from the spirits as they make contact. Think you can handle doing that in front of the most haunted house in Williamsburg? There’s only one way to find out. While equipment will be provided on the tour to use, we always encourage guests to bring their own along. Even if you do not have equipment, a simple cell phone will do the trick. Many guests capture photographs on their phones of orbs, shadow figures, faces in windows and even full on apparitions while doing flash photography. Believe it or not, your voice memo function on your phone serves as a decent audio recorder for catching EVP’s during an EVP session. See you there. Ticket purchased required before meeting the tour.

$23.00 per person – 9:30 PM -meets at the Capitol

Journey with us as we take you on a two hour candle-lit stroll of Williamsburg and reveal what lies waiting in the darkness. Our seasoned shadow guides will regale you with strange stories and spooky encounters that are all based on true experiences. All of our stories come from everyday people living and working right alongside the ghosts of this historic city. Not only will you get to hear their stories, you’ll have the unique opportunity to use real ghost hunting equipment and make contact with them for yourself. You can try your hand at speaking with the spirits directly using our Psb7 spirit box, where they will manipulate radio frequencies to speak with you in real time. Is that too much for you? Then why not use our dowsing rods to feel the spirits energy for yourself as they answer your yes/no questions. There’s always the EMF (K2) meter that will pick up any electromagnetic field disturbances around you if a spirit should be in your company. How will you react if your meter suddenly lights up and begins to buzz in your hand? This tour, what some consider to be “the spookiest tour in Williamsburg” will give you a glimpse of what lies beyond the shadows. We are talking about a city that is soaked in history from its’ birth in 1699. There are good memories here and then there are bad ones too. It goes without saying-the spirits here are dying for their stories to be told. The question that remains is this, are YOU ready to listen?
