We did the Christmas tour. Trish was very knowledgeable and informative on Christmas traditions and encouraged us to ask her any questions about anything. We will tour with her again when we are in the area.More

Lady apples? Scallop fossils? There are stories behind most everything you see in Williamsburg decorations during the Christmas season. The seemingly trivial things -- and there are many -- make our tour stand out from any other. We offer historically accurate background information, thorough knowledge...More

We do believe in telling the unvarnished truth. History isn't always pretty, but revisionist history is even worse. Thank you. We look forward to seeing you again.

This was an excellent tour. We wanted the Historic Tour but because the Christmas season has begun it was replaced with the Christmas Tour of Colonial Williamsburg, which was also a history tour. We enjoyed 90 minutes of holiday history as well as early American...More

Thank you. All of our tours are history-based and well received for telling that history in story form, and we enjoy relating little-known facts as we go. Asking questions is very much encouraged. We appreciate your review.

We've been to Williamsburg many times over the last 40 years, but now feel that we know so much more since our walking tour. Our tour guide was so informed and made the 1.5 hour walk fly by.

...And your review is delightful to us. I especially like your phrase "contextual connections," which describes how refreshing it can be to experience broad-based knowledge rather than hearing things by rote. That's what we're all about, and why Trish is the best. Thank you. --David

There are several paid lots nearby. We parked at the Visitor's Center which was free. It was a little farther away and made for a good walk, but certainly not horrible. Just make sure to allow yourself plenty of extra... More
