    Friendly knowledgeable historical tour
    Carol_P, Jan 2023
    Cyndi is a friendly, affable tour guide who is easy to listen to. She knows her history and show a lot of enthusiasm for it. She engages with participants well and welcomes conversation. Her use of old photos was really illuminating. She was willing to do this tour with just the two of us.
    Superbly thorough tour by Cyndi

    Cyndi served as an extraordinarily knowledgeable and attentive Williamsburg guide who customized the tour to address our interests. As veterans of lots of historical tours, we rank Cyndi in the top 2% of professional guides that we’ve experienced.
    Personable and Informative!

    We had the most informative tour with Bambi this morning. She has a wealth of knowledge about Williamsburg, it’s history, inhabitants and evolution. She is so friendly and accommodating and we couldn’t be happier that we scheduled a private tour with her to get an overview of Williamsburg before exploring more on our own. 100% recommended!
    Fun, knowledgeable and kind tour guide

    Our walking tour with Cyndi was wonderful. She is very professional and knowledgeable of the area. She explained so much and was very accommodating to 2 seniors having to sit often. She even made our lunch reservations at a place she recommended. We would highly recommend her.
    Williamsburg private tour
    Laury_G, Aug 2022
    Bambi was an excellent guide. Extremely knowledgeable and experienced. It was very hot and humid so she helped us out by stopping for some cool drinks midway through. Was nice that it was a private tour as we could be more flexible. Felt lucky to have found her and taken this tour!
