About Williamsburg Walking Tours
Our Walk About History tour is a 1 1/2-hour introduction to the history of Williamsburg -- its historical importance, development in the 18th century, glimpses into daily life of colonial inhabitants, and modern restoration. Our unique African American History Tour is specific to the Black experience in Williamsburg and lasts 1 1/2 hours. Our newest tour is The Civil War in Williamsburg, also a one-of-a kind tour of 90 minutes that covers The Peninsula Campaign, Battle of Williamsburg and the Union occupation of the town. Tours are outdoor walking tours. We do not go inside the buildings. All are excellent choices if you have limited time to visit Williamsburg, or are looking for an in-depth orientation on a particular subject before touring the town on your own.

Trish was well informed, friendly and very interesting. As well as explaining the usual sites she brought fascinating insights into historical events and a healthy scepticism about some common myths. We enjoyed her company and would recommend this tour to anybody wanting to go a little deeper into the history of Williamsburg. Excellent value for money a definite 5 stars!

The tour guide was so knowledgeable and really identified the African American history of Williamsburg accurately. My wife and I brought our Mother’s who are also very well versed. We can tell that she is very passionate about her work and that she also did the proper research to keep the authenticity of different historical events. She was also kind and communicated very well.

Trish was our tour guide and she did a phenomenal job! She had endless stories to tell about the historical figures who lives in each house we passed, what it was like to live in the time period for different types of people, the significance of each building, the beliefs of the time... etc. etc. Answered all of our questions in full detail, and included historical truths about people of different cultures and backgrounds, even the sad (and sometimes gruesome) details. She was also very accommodating and helpful to me (a breastfeeding mom) and my family! Always made sure that we were in the shade when she stopped to share a story, and even found a shady bench for me to feed my baby while she was giving information to the rest of the group nearby. This tour was my favorite part of our trip to Williamsburg!!
