Lots of fun

Our tour guide, Woody, was very descriptive in his stories of the ghosts. He used threads of Williamsburg history that brought me back to my history classes in school. I could see the characters and visualize their clothing. We did get some strange pictures.

Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the town. I had a very great time . My only problem was the tour takes two hours. They should have more places to sit while the guides tell their stories. At the end of the tour most of our group was sitting on the ground could be bad for older people or people who have problems walking.

Denny was a great guide. He was very interactive and knew a lot about the history of the area. 9:15 was a perfect time because it was nice and dark.

Extreme ghost tour

Denny was AMAZING! I had taken this tour a few years ago but this experience was sooo much better than my first! Denny used an evp device, emf readers, and dowsing rods. It made the two hours go by in a flash. Denny was very funny, an amazing story teller and really made the experience!
