Thank you for your review! Chad is a great guide and ambassador to our historic city. You won't find better guides that the ones we have at the Colonial Experience at the Colonial Quarter. I'm so glad you'll be returning again.

I'm sorry you were mislead by our advertising. We try to make it understood that this is a living history tour, not museum, so the expectation of several re-enactors isn't presented. Our guides typically move the groups along in a timely manner and find shady...More

If you do the tour on your own, you might be disappointed, as the exhibits, though nicely done, are few, and not much information. Our guide Ellie, however, made the whole visit worthwhile, so wait for a guided tour! Ellie was hilarious, but also knowledgeable,...More

Response from BadgerTripper | Reviewed this property |
Naomi, Adult admission is $12.99. Go to their home page and look for a link that says, "Get Ticket Info" in the middle left-hand side of the page. Sorry TripAdvisor won't let me include the direct link.
