You will be introduced to the historic importance of each site visited, you will hear of the local ghostly legends that surround them, and of recent encounters with the spirits that reside there. Our Walk About History is a 1/2-hour introduction to the history of Williamsburg - its historical importance, its development in the 18th century, glimpses into daily life of the colonial inhabitants, and its modern restoration. An excellent choice if you have limited time to visit Williamsburg, or are looking for an in-depth orientation before touring the town on your own. « less

Every American should visit Wiliamsburg, Virginia. There is so much history there. This is a wonderful trip for school-aged children. I do think the children should be at least 8-10 to really enjoy the tour- lots of walking. Smaller groups are better; more interaction with the guides.

I took a tour with Joey. He was very engaging, and was able to answer all of our questions about the city's history. The only negative was the tired toddler that slowed the group down. I would definitely recommend Williamsburg Walking Tours for those over 6. It has something to offer for both history buffs and ghost hunters!!

Big waste of money, booked this at the Williamsburg General Store located at 1656 Richmond Road. Our tour guide R was very knowledgeable and nice, but her voice wasn't very loud and you practially had to be on top of her to hear her. She even said before she started that she would try to be scary but she wasn't... More

You are referring to another company. We do not sell tickets on Richmond Road. Our starting time is different, too. Our guides are knowledgeable and present well, and our groups are designed to be small so that everyone may hear the guide easily. Thus our slogan: "Join a Tour. Not a Parade." More

Its only an hour long, but Trish keeps you entertained the entire tour. Definitely worth doing, even if you're a skeptic.

This was a fun, comprehensive and informative tour. My husband and I love the Colonial Williamsburg area and the rich history behind it. This tour was absolutely captivating! If you're in the Williamsburg area, DEFINITELY make it a point to take this walking tour.

She kept the entire group of us under her "spell" as she enthusiastically recounted ghostly facts based upon her many years of living in the area and... More

I have been to Williamsburg many times, but this was my first time going in the springtime. It was not crowded and the tulips were beautiful. Other flowering trees and flowers graced the area. The guides were excellent and with the lack of great crowds we were able to talk to them and be inspired by their knowledge of the... More

Thank you for the fantastic tour of Historic Williamburg. My family thoroughly enjoyed it and in fact talked about it all the way home to NC. This thing we liked most about this tour was that it kept both our teenagers and small children interested during the entire tour. Trish did an excellent job keep in us all entertained. We... More
