    We booked the Colonial History Tour through the Williamsburg Lodge. The tour guide arrived promptly, dressed in historical clothing. He was a wonderful guide, full of historical facts about the town, and descriptions of many terms and phrases that originated during 17th and 18th century. We were supposed to be with a larger group but only my wife and I were available for the tour so we really had the guide all to ourselves. This was a fantastic educational experience.

    Tom was super knowledgeable! Great info! Lots of walking and standing so might not be great for the littles, but I thought it was awesome! Definitely get the hot apple cider if you get a chance!

    Our guide was very good about mixing history with funny stories about how certain expressions originated.

    It was very informative, almost too much information. Seems overwhelming at times. Others on the tour felt the same way. It should be noted in the description of this tour that you should be able to walk about 2 miles. Very tiring for those with bad knees or backs. A lot of standing an listening. No shuttle at the end to take you back to your vehicle so be prepared to walk all that same way back. Glad we went, the homes were all original and very beautiful to see. Not something I would do again or probably recommend. There are less exhausting ways to get this information. Nice guide, but he talked too slowly for us.

    Went to downtown Williamsburg, the candy shop, Williamsburg museum. Also checked out Ripley's Believe it or not. (fun).

    Tom is extremely knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. He kept us intrigued and lots of laughter.

    Can't express how much we enjoyed the tour with Tom. His knowledge and patients are outstanding and we learned so much. On top of it I'll mention the top notch service provided by Lisa the owner of the company. The weather was not perfect and we were not sure if it will take place. She was so helpful and considerable. Highly recommended!

    Well worth it! Grace and Lexi are so knowledgeable. Grace’s “real life” stories bring history to life. Learn the origin of many familiar phrases like “whole nine yards, bite the bullet, putting your best foot forward, etc.”

    Great overall tour of Colonial Williamsburg. The guides were friendly and definitely knew lots of stories to share. Loved hearing how we got a lot of our sayings that are used today.
