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.

Awesome Guide through the Colonies of Williamsburg!! Trisha was excellent!!! The discussion and information on the African Americans in the 1800s was told beautifully through the eyes of a beautiful Native American.

Loved learning about the people who inhabited these wonderful restored homes. Our guide was amiable and gracious. She kept the stories coming at the same time allowed for questions and discussion. Highly recommend Trish.

With the streets of Williamsburg being public, The hour and half tour was a great way to experience Williamsburg for the cost

Your comments are much appreciated. Our 90-minute guided tours can provide visitors with a first-stop orientation of the city's history, its people and their stories, or stand alone for those with limited time in Williamsburg.

Enjoyed the tour. Learned interesting details about life and people in colonial Williamsburg. Guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. My only issue was this: The tour started at one end of the street and finished at the other end. At the end of the tour the guide just left us saying "if you have tickets you can go inside some of the buildings and talk to more people". It would have been nice to know that before-hand so we could have gotten tickets. The guide didn't even say where to buy tickets. And we just felt kind of abandoned.

We try to make it clear on our website and tour reservation pages that we are a private company. Payments and confirmation emails are issued by our booking agent under our company's logo. Our tour descriptions include maps of the route's starting and ending points along Duke of Gloucester Street, and our guides are as helpful as possible in pointing out the historic area's eating establishments, merchants, public restrooms and bus stops along the way. Colonial Williamsburg tickets are not required in order to take our tours; therefore, we have no way of knowing beforehand which of our guests have or have not purchased them.
