Lexie was an awesome guide. She spoke loudly and clearly, telling some great ghost stories and sharing some creepy pictures people have captured. We caught an old man staring out a window in one of our photos. Kids (ages 13 & 11) loved it!!!

Didn’t love this…
Laurie
, Jul 2022
We’ve been on many ViaTors & ghost tours. This was definitely not among the best. The group was way too big! Even split in 2 groups it was too big. The “pirate” was TERRIBLE!!! He came off rude, bored & unprepared. His stories didn’t flow. Too many ummms & uhhhhs. The “witch” would ask him something & he would bark at her. It felt embarrassing & awkward. I will not believe he was in character. It was rude! Most everyone felt it that was around me. Now this all being said, the “witch” Gracie (?) was fantastic! She was enthusiastic & she seemed to love her job. “Mr. Pirate “, not so much. “The Witch” also gave us a lot of information & history which was great. We didn’t spend much time with the 3rd person. There are a lot of other things I could say but I’ll leave it at this. I am VERY glad it wasn’t more than $20.

I’m sorry you felt this way but Mr.Pirate was playing his character very well that was his character and he was supposed to act that way as you see from our numerous 5 star reviews everyone loves Mr. Pirate . When we split the tour each group had 30 people which is a normal group size . Mr Pirate plays the part of a Pirate on Blackbeard’s ship and that is how Pirates were he loves his rum as it is told in the end who he really is. Sincerely, Grace Sherwood and Mr. Pirate

Viator: This company...
Deborah_O
, Jun 2022
Viator: This company rather than cancelling their walking tour of Ghosts, Witches and Pirates, had 21 guests walking in a downpour for most the tour of 1 1/2 hrs. After heavy downpours all afternoon, by 8 pm, rain was down to 45% precipitation, but within 30 mins, the precipitation went up again to 100 %. Colonial Williamsburg’s Ghost tours were cancelled appropriately, but Viator clearly did not wish to reschedule or refund anyone their money. I guess they don’t care about liability to their customers who might slip on wet surfaces in the dark. The tour guides were personable, but they should have had more sense. My family has slickers and we’re prepared for any additional showers, but downpours made this absolutely miserable. Guides were finally walking and talking realizing that some of us planned to cut out early, but instead we slogged on. Not worth my $60 to have a 7 yr old and grandparents deal with this. I guess your customers didn’t want to loose their money either so they endured this misery. Bad judgement on the part of the local group who should have advised Viator to cancel! We were all soaked to the bone and most the group had no rain jackets and were soaked through..

It was not suppose to rain after 8:00 Pm It did not start raining until we were at the Peyton Randolph House which was 1 hour and a half into the tour . The tour was almost done .There we’re numerous Tours out last night .Sorry you feel this way . At the purchase of your tickets it clearly states we go rain or shine.In Williamsburg the weather constantly changes . When the tour started the weather was fine and we were almost done with the tour when it was raining we even offered to give the Guests to didn’t bring umbrellas our umbrella which we did. As you see we are a five star tour . Sincerely, Grace Sherwood and Mr Pirate 🏴‍☠️

Too scary for younger children.
Diane_W
, Jun 2022
I enjoyed the stories; however some were inappropriate for younger children. Example: story of children caught stealing, their ears were nailed to the stakes & lobes were cut off. There were a few children under 7-8, & this story was definitely too scary for them. One child went back upset to his parents, & they had to tell him it was just a story, which did not seem to comfort him.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Thank you for your review . We are glad you liked the stories. We wanted to let you know adults we’re the ones who were put into the stocks . The children on our tour always like to participate in this story . In the future we will only let older children participate in this . As you see most all children love our tour .Especially being in Mr.Pirate Crew and getting to pick from the treasure chest in the end . Thank you for bringing this to our attention . Safe travels! Sincerely, Grace Sherwood and Mr .Pirate 🏴‍☠️ Mr.Pirate 🏴‍☠️

What a fun and interesting experience. I have been on multiple "ghost tours" in various cities and these were the best hosts I have encountered! Gracie, Lexie and Mr. Pirate were so entertaining and seemed to really enjoy their job which translates into the group really enjoying the tour. I would recommend for all ages!

Its a different world there at night

My kids 6 n 10 yo enjoyed it! I see a lot of adults on the tour. Its a fun way to learn history and tour the place at night. Witch and pirate are very good! I realized we already took pics of the haunted location during the daytime reviwing pics next day. Then touring it at night is whole different level of drama to the history of the place.
