My family and I had been on a week long trip through Virginia.
We only had one day in Williamsburg, so I researched the best way to give my boys (ages 13 and 10) a appropriate appreciation while maintaing their interest..
I was very fortunate to find Charles and Williamsburg Colonial Tours on-line. By and far, this was the absolute best experience we could have imagined.
We were a bit tired from a whole week of touring, but this historical journey with Charles was the highlight of our trip to VA.
He met us at the hotel and guided us to the best place to park in Williamsburg. We were able to experience all of Williamsburg and William & Mary in just a few hours. We did not go in to the buildings, but did not have to, as we had an even better experience with Charles' stories making history come alive for the whole family. He thoroughly entertained the whole family with his stories. He sensed when we were a bit tired, made a great recommendation for lunch, and then joined us after dinner for a wonderful ghost tour.
We were joined by my buddy's freshman daughter at William & Mary. Even my 13 y/o has a picture that he swears has a picture of a ghost in the picture window. The whole day was outstanding and I would recommend Charles to any family or group that wants to make the most of Williamsburg. We will return and go in some of the buildings with the full background that Charles gave us.
He was courteous, funny, respectful, fair and had lots of great tips for our visit.
I would highly encourage you to consider Charles. You will get soooo much more out of your trip. As a postscript and per Chrales recommendation, we have purchased and are watching the "Adams' miniseries that was taped in Williamsburg.
