I can't say enough of our wonderful tour with Mr. Charles Falls. He is so knowledgeable of the Williamsburg history which makes it so enjoyable and entertaining. He was great with my four children ages 14,13,9 & 7 keeping them engaged and interested at all times. He took his time to explain & discuss each site. The tour originally scheduled for one hour...ended up being two hours and I'm not complaining....lol. Definitely get your money's worth. I would refer this tour to everyone.
Thank you very much Charles

Grazie mille, Giovanni. I enjoyed giving your family my tour of old Williamsburg. Your children are so courteous that it was pleasurable for me. Best wishes for Buon Natalie.

We traveled in October and had beautiful weather and very few crowds. We took the trolley which saved a lot of time and walking. You get a good look at how things were during the Revolutionary War. The working exhibits were well done and the people were well educated and very informative about their roles and crafts of the era. The fife and drum parade was a real treat as were the firing of the cannons and muskets. There were many fine restaurants on the grounds as well as in the surrounding area. There are many hotels to choose from which are close to the park. We asked a young lady at the welcome center for information and she couldn't have been more helpful. She even took us to kiosk to get our trolley tickets which saved us standing in line at the service counter. I think you can see pretty much everything in a day.

Wow! Being with Charles was the highlight of our trip! Over 2 days, he escorted us through Jamestown and Colonial Williamsburg and we couldn't have asked for more!

Charles is a great historian, and mezmerizing storyteller. He was so very patient with my questions. We loved every single minute! He also helped us with a bit of rescheduling our trip, as we were initially going to arrive during days of inclement weather and at his advice we postponed. This was the VERY best advice. We missed the constant rain and had beautiful weather. Thank you!

We got SO much more out of our visit thanks to Charles. We could feel the energy of this very historic area thanks to him. This was the very best part of our vacation.

Charles, We Thank You.
We hated for it to end, and will never ever forget you and our experience!

We scheduled a short visit to the Williamsburg area over the Labor Day weekend and wanted to get to see and learn a lot in a short period of time to make the most of our trip. We decided to book a guided tour after reading the excellent reviews of Charles Falls. We booked a 2 hour walking tour of Colonial Williamsburg and a 90 minute ghost tour later the same day. Everything lived up to our expectations.

Our group of 6 included our extended family with ages ranging from 7 to 72. Charles kept the information on the tour interesting and pertinent for all ages. That's saying a lot when you can entertain our 7 year old who gets entertainment from electronic devices.

The ghost tour was equally entertaining and was interesting yet not too scary for our 7 year old. She even said it was her favorite part about our trip.

If you want to get the most out of your trip to Williamsburg, consider Charles Falls and Williamsburg Colonial Tours, we would highly recommend it.

Thank you Mr. Falls, for making our vacation so enjoyable.
