Colonial Ghosts

Turn Your Phone into a Ghost Tour Guide with iOS and Android App: The ultimate social distanced tour

Colonial Ghosts was forced to shut down in-person led tours for months due to COVID-19. In response, the company launched an iOS and Android app that turns your phone into a tour guide. The app combines actor narrated voice, images, video, text, GPS triggers, voice navigation, and a map and route. Guests can now enjoy self-guided tours on location, using the app to walk them through the streets to each haunted location, whenever, and with whomever they want.

The app will take users to the Peyton Randolph House, site of many accidental deaths, and many hauntings since the death of the house's namesake or to watch for phantom candlelight on the upper floors of the Governor's Palace, a War of Independence hospital. In addition to Williamsburg, VA, the app also lets users take ghost tours in cities across the country. An engrossing audio narrative and spooky images bring the fun, informative and creepy atmosphere of the tour to wherever you happen to take the tour.

We are the only ghost tour company in town that has done our own research and actually documented our hauntings. We fact check and verify every story we tell, but more importantly, we document the haunting activity (see blog here for proof!). Other tours rely on books or made up urban legends, and adorn these with silly costumes, props and gimmicks. Which is fine, if you’re a theatrical company. Or your goal is just to entertain. But Colonial Ghosts has a different mission. We are fascinated with real human stories and real hauntings, and we want to share these incredible experiences with you.

Our stories and the sites we visit are unique! You won’t learn these secrets with any other tour in town!

Our tours cover 19 different haunted sites. And every year, we work to improve our tours by digging deeper into the stories and hauntings we’re already familiar with, or else finding and verifying new sites.

On our tours, you will discover the amazing and gruesome stories that have made Williamsburg, Virginia one of the most haunted locations in the continental United States. You’ll learn things like: 

The intriguing origin of the phrase “bite the bullet”... and what it has to do with the haunting of the Governor's Palace!
