My company employs John with Colonial Tours for private tours for VIP guests and families. His knowledge of the history of Williamsburg and Jamestown is both informative and entertaining. His "insight" in to the life of our fore fathers really puts you in the moment of their experiences and their time in history. I have attended John's tours with our... More

We recently went on a tour with a group of young scouts and John accommodates his stories accordingly for the kids. My daughter left with a few new history lessons, a new perspective on ghosts, and a slight fear of public restrooms It was a nice time :)

John did an awesome job of entertaining our group. We were a large group of about 10 families, most of the children were elementary age. He made it very age appropriate, all of the children (and adults) had a great time! They loved getting to help you carry his lantern, perform in the pirate show and the ghost detector! My... More

My sisters and our daughters have an annual "Ladies' Weekend." We recently held our weekend in Williamsburg. I signed us up for a night ghost tour with John. What an experience! John had us "feeling" the ghost's presence at several houses. He had fantastic stories to tell and got us involved. We did a funny skit about pirates - we... More

John Sutton's Williamsburg private tours is a must. There are a few tours in town..make sure you book Willamsburg Private tours with John Sutton. He steps you back in time and his knowledge is what sets his tours above others. What a memorable day this was for us. Thanks John for giving us a unique tour of the town you... More

Wow, what great tours. Taking these private tours is the best thing a visitor can do. I was initially impressed by the company's website. It was a pleasure to meet John. He comes highly recommended as is evident from comments on his website. His tours are better than I thought they would be. They will be the highlight of your... More

Our tour was great! I went with a small group of family and friends. John Sutton ( the tour guide) really knows what he is doing. He is funny and knowledgeable. The nicest part though was the personal attention. We were able to ask as many questions as we wanted to and get informed answers unlike some bigger tours I... More
