Not worth the money!

We travel a lot and always do a good or ghost tour! This was the very first bad tour and it was because of the guide. She was rude, nasty and very unpleasant. She scolded several in the group for asking a question abt the building she was speaking of. This guide ruined the whole experience.
The first tour was fascinating. We walked along the streets and heard about the history of the various places that supposedly are haunted. The second tour however, we found a bit boring. She spoke about pirates and people that had been accused of witchcraft, and some of those types of stories. It was a little different than what we expected and left the tour early.
The first tour would have been enough. The guide became an historical character and added some fun to this tour. Some stories wee interesting. Second was a bit blah as she wasn't portraying a character. The guide was just giving us her version of her historical research. Sort of a let down after the first one,
Not necessary to take the combo one.
Must do tour, particularly if done before visiting Colonial Williamsburg during the day. Guides make history come alive even if they are talking about the Dead. This tour was the highlight of our weekend trip.
This tour was fantastic! I've been on several ghost tours and this one is still by far my favorite. The tour guide takes you around in costume playing the part of a colonial era ghost, it's a lot of fun. She is very knowledgeable and knows alot of local legends about the haunted homes.
