Definitely recommend doing a walking tour! You learn so much more than if you did a self guided tour. Trish was amazing and knew so many little nuggets of colonial history. We loved it!

[Historical walking tour June 4, 2023] Piling on the praise for Trish. I scheduled the wrong date and she refunded my purchase immediately over cell phone texts. I signed-up for the right time and we had a blast together! The whole time felt like two old friends chatting while out for a walk, never like she was working from a script.

Trish is an excellent historian and tour guide. She kept my interest for the entirety of several tours. She shares stories that you probably would not have heard elsewhere and gives you a more nuanced perspective of American history. I'm grateful to have gone on her tour, as I walked away with a better sense of how the world works and how African Americans should address our social issues.

Fantastic tour! The African-American tour is a must see for all those visiting Williamsburg, and locals as well. I guarantee everyone will learn something about some of the less well-known history of the Colonial times.

Best walking tour in Colonial Williamsburg

Best walking tour! Our guide met us at the precise location and a bit early. Her knowledge of the history of the region is wonderful. Her story telling added so much more information and was captivating. We booked a civil war walking tour of Williamsburg (goes deeper into the conflict) and we're not disappointed! Call or email this Williamsburg Walking Tour with Trish (757)634-2452 if you want more than a nice stroll in CW!
