Explore the dark side of Virginia's capital city on a Haunts of Richmond Ghost Tour. After the museums close and the sun goes down, our spirits rise! Richmond has its share of ghostly and ghastly tales, and we can't wait to share them with you.

We are limiting our tour sizes to a maximum of 8 guests for the duration of Phase 2. The maximum tour size will be re-evaluated as we enter Phase 3 and beyond.

Our guides and staff will be wearing masks at all times while interacting with you, our guests.

We will maintain a minimum distance of 6-ft from you at all times. This necessitates that all tickets be purchased in advance. No walk-up sales will be permitted until the State of Virginia lifts all COVID-19 related restrictions. If necessary, we will utilize microphones to ensure that you can hear us, while maintaining social distancing.

If you show any symptoms of COVID-19, have had any symptoms of COVID-19 in the last 14 days, or have had known exposure to COVID-19 in the last 14 days, you must stay home. Until the State of Virginia lifts all COVID-19 related restrictions, we are relaxing our cancellation and rescheduling policy. As long as you notify us before the scheduled tour time, we will gladly accommodate cancellation and rescheduling requests without penalty. We will not be able to accommodate requests after the scheduled tour time.

Purchase your tickets in advance online at least 2-hours before the scheduled tour time. To promote social distancing, and to minimize physical interactions, we will not be accepting walkup guests.

After making your ticket purchase, you will receive your confirmation email. Within this email is a link to a digital waiver that must be signed before arriving for your tour.

When you arrive for your tour, maintain social distancing from your guide and provide them with the name used to make the reservation. We will have your ticket purchase on record. No physical contact is necessary.

Wear a mask at all times, and guests that are not a part of the same party should maintain a minimum 6-ft spacing between each other, and from the tour guide.
