Reviewed 30 April 2014

Our family of 14 which included 7 grandparents and parents and 7 children ages 1,2, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 had a terrific experience with John Sutton as our tour guide both during our visit to Williamsburg and in advance of our trip providing ideas to consider as we were planning our visit. He was helpful in guiding our choice of lodging and also gave us great info on other things to do on our own in the area. He spent two days with us: the first was a two hour+ introductory tour of Williamsburg itself, and then on another day he accompanied us to Jamestown Settlement in the morning and Yorktown in the afternoon with lunch in between. He held the attention of us all with his great information and stories, and the children loved putting on costumes and re-enacting battles, etc. He further enhanced our time with him by bringing maps and other visuals to enrich his presentations. He has a relaxed conversational and interactive style and adapted readily to any perceived needs, style, or interests of our group. Our whole family, even the children, are still commenting on his knowledge and the fun he added for us all!

We recently went on a tour with a group of young scouts and John accommodates his stories accordingly for the kids. My daughter left with a few new history lessons, a new perspective on ghosts, and a slight fear of public restrooms It was a nice time :)

John did an awesome job of entertaining our group. We were a large group of about 10 families, most of the children were elementary age. He made it very age appropriate, all of the children (and adults) had a great time! They loved getting to help you carry his lantern, perform in the pirate show and the ghost detector! My daughter made sure she spun around at least 20 times before she got back into the car, she had to make double sure all of the ghost were out of her! Our teenagers even felt like they had a something weird happen to them! Well worth it!!!! Thanks so much John, you were great!

My sisters and our daughters have an annual "Ladies' Weekend." We recently held our weekend in Williamsburg. I signed us up for a night ghost tour with John. What an experience! John had us "feeling" the ghost's presence at several houses. He had fantastic stories to tell and got us involved. We did a funny skit about pirates - we laughed and laughed. We visited cemeteries and he told us the history of those buried there. Definitely a tour worth taking!

John Sutton's Williamsburg private tours is a must. There are a few tours in town..make sure you book Willamsburg Private tours with John Sutton. He steps you back in time and his knowledge is what sets his tours above others. What a memorable day this was for us. Thanks John for giving us a unique tour of the town you love.
