We will guide you through the reconstructed colonial capital of Virginia, giving you the story of its founding, its growth, its place in American history and its eventual re-birth as the living museum you see today. Along the way, you’ll hear stories of some of Williamsburg’s citizens throughout her history, learn a bit about 18th-century life and customs, and also learn about what the restored city has to offer the visitor today.
If you have limited time to spend in Williamsburg, this tour is a great way to get a solid understanding of Williamsburg and its significance. Even if you plan to spend a week here exploring the museum, our tour will help you understand the backstories of the town, and aid you in getting the most out of your Colonial Williamsburg tickets.
