Mr. Falls and Jack were incredible guides. They were knowledgeable and fun and brought the events of history to life for my family. I won't give away any surprises, but it was incredible to be in the same buildings as some of our founding fathers....More

Thanks for your kind comments Mr. Crossman. We strive to be historically correct instead of politically correct. We owe that to the Patriots. We are glad that your daughters benefited from their experiences. Charles Falls

Charles Falls is very knowledgeable and has many marvelous stories. He also gives you the chance to talk about subjects in which you have a particular interest. Great for a personal guide through the History of Williamsburg.

It's not a tour because the driver doesn't talk much as you ride through the town. She did tell us about the first building that was restored in the town. It is a leisurely way to see the sights and feel the flavor of colonial...More

Your review arrived on the day our beloved pet died. I remember you well. I shall not challenge your misrepresentation of the true facts. All I can say, prior reviews of my tours speak volumes. I forgive you. Charles
