    Tour was awesome, very knowledgable guide. Took time to tell the stories that went with the ghostly pictures. Tim is very passionate about his work. Highly recommend this tour.

    Learning about the history of Williamsburg and the ghosts that haunt it. The pictures were incredible and I now am a firm believer in ghosts.

    This tour is a one of a kind and a must for those who love ghost tours, history tours, etc. Tim was outstanding and is an awesome photographer. Some of his photos are extremely spooky and will give you the chills. He taught us what to look for when taking pictures. I always shoot with a small camera and usually get orbs, but I never thought about taking pictures, seeing a light cloud, and cropping them to see what is in those pictures. We did get faces. It's truly amazing. Tim is knowledgeable about the area and will keep you mesmerized. We will go on the ghostographer tour again and we are planning to buy Tim's book. I would have uploaded my pictures, but what is showing on the camera, won't show on my computer. First, I uploaded the pictures and made duplicates, just in case I cropped incorrectly. Then I went back into my computer and the ghostly pictures were gone. So I uploaded again. Now those same pictures are black. All the other pictures are fine. No, not operator error. It's very bizarre.

    Excellent ghost tour. Tim shared his amazing ghost photos and stories on an engaging tour. He showed us the sites that he has captured some of his images and gave us plenty of time to take as many photos as we wanted.

    We had so much fun on the Williamsburg West Tour! The pictures helped tell the story of the area. Our guide was so knowledgeable and kept us engaged. I was so shocked when I went to take a picture by the church two images went past me so fast I couldn’t capture them but it FREAKED me out!
