We've done many ranger led tours through our National Park Service and have had many interactions with the NPS Rangers. Our tour was guided by Mac and he was one of the best we've ever had. He presents the information in an educational and enjoyable manner. We spent about three hours here including driving to and seeing Redoubts #9, #10... More

The original tents of George Washington were an incredible bonus! I had no idea they were there. The park is nice, a bit spread out, it really takes a car to see it all. However as it was a siege more than a battle most of what there is to see are trenches and redoubts

A Must see!! Rolling back in time was an excellent experience. We bought the Historic Triangle Package for $90, that includes access to Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown & Yorktown for 7 days. Completely worth it. It took us a complete 1 day in each location. Guided tours are the best.

The Yorktown Battlefield preserves forever the history that made us independent. Beautifully presented, the battlefield instructs, informs and entertains. Take a National Park Ranger led guided tour or wonder around the fields, trenches and redoubts on your own. There is also a super driving tour that takes about 45 minutes to an hour. Great for families. Highly recommended.

We attended the short film about the battleground and then joined the park ranger for a tour of the battleground. She was a great wealth of information and took time to find out where each member of our group lived. She invited questions and her presentation was interesting and a real education.

The museum is small at the battlefield but is remarkable for the size. We watched a 16 minute video that was easy to follow and made the battlefield self guided tour all the more enjoyable. The walking tour is informative. I would definitely recommend this national treasure! It was very nice to see the flag outside at half mast due... More

This was the last of several historic sights we visited during a vacation in the Williamsburg area. Maybe we were getting tired of touring so many historic venues and battlefields (I know I was), but my wife is a super history fan and she thought this was a bit disappointing as well. One word of caution is that unlike the... More

The museum portion is small but that is no what you are going to see. The battlefield is well preserved and maintained! The walking tour was fantastic and the driving tour is good also! You can go with no knowledge of the battle that took place here and you will know quite a bit when you leave!

The flag outside was at half-staff today because of the recent tragedy in France. It was a good day to learn about France's help in America achieving her independence. I would skip the movie in the theater. Start at the museum where at the start you can push a button on demand that will play a movie that covers the... More

We live in Yorktown and like to drive the battlefield. If you are a history buff it it very interesting. After driving around the battle field we like to drive down to the Yorktown waterfront for a walk and a bit of lunch.
