Almost Historical
Cara G, Jul 2022 Verified
The Tidewater water region in the summer. How did this country ever get beyond Jamestown? My wife and I are 70-ish years old and had never visited this historic region though we have wanted to since we were kids. We picked a 98-degree day. We’re in good shape. We survived. If you have a Senior National Park Pass, bring it. When booking this tour we expected immersion in history, not a theme park. Almost everything in Williamsburg is a recreation born in the 1930s and has been built up since. While the costumed actors were knowledgeable and entertaining, I have been to historic recreations many times; this was just another. I found this disappointing. When you go make sure you get an all-day pass so that you can take the bus into Historic Williamsburg or will have to walk about a mile to get there from the welcome center. Jamestown is what I really wanted to see. There have been scientific excavations of the original colony. We didn’t get to see it. The bus tour takes you to a recreation of Jamestown Colony. Again, the actors were fine, but they and the “theme park” were not 400 years old. Jamestown, the original site, and the archaeological dig is a mile away and you won’t have time to get there. Lunch was great. The tour stopped at a restaurant that served a colonial-style lunch. Yummy!The tour of the Yorktown battlefield was worse. We stopped at a couple of places on the battlefield and our guide was light on history. Most of our time was at the Battlefield Visitors Center. Again, a “Historic theme park” not unlike our previous stops.My comments here aren’t condemning the tour or the guide. I was disappointed because I wanted history, not gift shops. I will go back, knowing better and planning my time accordingly.
