My husband and I spent 2 days roaming the old streets of Willliamsburg and the shoppes nearby. There are so many things to see and do and great people in time period clothes who are helpful and wonderful. We enjoyed the relaxing time of pretending we had gone back to that time era! A nice relaxing time away from our... More

So much to do, you cannot fit it in all in a day. Lots of walking, history, food, shopping and observing. Truly a history buff's playground. This is great for adults and kids alike. We took our dogs to walk the streets. I suggest parking near the town, not the visitors center IF you are bringing dogs. Otherwise, using the... More

We were advised to start at the Williamsburg Visitior's Center - and so we did. Good move. There we learned that we qualified for free multiple day passes because my husband is a veteran (to ottos is Veterans Day). More importantly, we were urged to view a film about the history of Williamsburg and how it fits into our understanding... More

Returning from a trip to upstate New York, we decided to take an extra day and stop at Williamsburg. We were not disappointed. Excellent tours of several of the buildings, conducted by the best docents we have ever encountered. Williamsburg should provide training seminars to other museums and attractions on how to be a great docent. These people were terrific... More

As our son is finally old enough (12) to go on more historical trips, we try to do a few theme parks and a few museums/historical outings. Our son is also autistic; we thought a tour would help keep him interested by bringing history alive. We had two fabulous days with Mr. Falls and were able to see Jamestown, Williamsburg,... More

It was a lot of fun to take a tour of the homes of the mayor, people from the past and see all the neat tools and outfits that they wore back in the day. Very much hands on and lots to see.

We had a 2-hour tour of Colonial Williamsburg with Mr. Falls and thoroughly enjoyed it! He is a wealth of knowledge and a great storyteller! He kept the interest of our 11 and 14-year old sons, as well. We only wish we could have kept him with us the entire day to learn even more.
