  12. Is payment secure? Yes! Our site is back by a SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate. A digital certificate that authenticates the identity of a website and encrypts information sent to the server using SSL technology. All payments are handled by Square.
  13. Why should we take your ghost tour? All of your guides are 100% unpaid volunteers. They do not get paid to conduct tours, which means they love what they do! All legends/tales have been heavily researched and are local to Virginia Beach. Some of which are not told anywhere else in Hampton Roads. All money made at Ferry Plantation is donated right back to the home for renovations, maintenance, upkeep and to continuing telling the history of Ferry Plantation.
