The place is wild! It takes you back to a time before microwaves, cell phones, electricity and fast food! It took me a while to get into the tour of the town. Its hard to put down the smart phone and focus on the history - but once done - the joint is packed with tons of history! I recommend... More

I am a high school student with a strong interest in American history and found our tour of Williamsburg with Charles Falls very intriguing and informative. Anyone who loves American history would benefit from meeting and interacting with him. The tour was very comprehensive, and although my family and I had some unfortunate time restraints, we walked away with a... More

We had a delightful day with Charles touring Williamsburg and Yorktown. His breadth of knowledge enables him to tie the events of that time together for us with a lot of interesting sidelights not generally known to the public. Certainly worth the money to have the private tour.

Colonial Williamsburg is a fantastic place to visit. Our country's heritage is alive and well there. The residents and workers all wear Colonial garb. A walk down Duke Street is unforgettable. There are many authentic colonial shops open, some offer free admission In addition, there are several tavern's whose menu's offer authentic colonial meals.

Walking tour with Charles Falls on January 1, 2014 was worth every cent. Personable, fun and lots of unexpected information painted the picture of Colonial Williamsburg I was not expecting. Lot's of large and small details that brought it alive and left me wanting to know more. Great for history buffs or little kids. Fun and informative but really conveyed... More

My 13 yr old son and I just visited Colonial Williamsburg and had the good fortune to be able to have Charles of Williamsburg Colonial Tours give us a private Ghost Tour. We had never visited Williamsburg before and were only there for the day. Charles knew of our time restrictions and that we had planned on visiting Jamestowne during... More

Dear Judy and Justin, Thanks for your kind comments on your ghost tour experience. You obviously kept an open mind about the spirits we find here and your photos which create a lasting image to show when you return home. The fright you experienced in at least two instances when a flash went off behind you and the final word... More
