((Please note: Beginning June 27, 2016, I will be unable to conduct tours for several weeks as I recover from surgery. During this time, I can refer you to colleagues of mine who can conduct a tour of Williamsburg. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT IT MAY TAKE LONGER FOR ME TO RESPOND TO INQUIRIES DURING THIS TIME. I hope to be able to resume giving tours in September. Thank you. Bruce)) Providing guided walking tours of historic Williamsburg, VA for individuals, families and small groups. 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.

I can only echo the other reviewers and say this is a "must do" tour. Bruce's anecdotes and in depth knowledge of Williamsburg give a human story to the colonial Williamsburg area. Well worth the time spent!!

What I offer is a walking tour. I post pictures of Colonial Williamsburg on my site, and those include pictures of the carriages that you can see on the street every day.
