What past guests have said about my tours
We would like to make a reservation again for this year, regarding our 8th grade Williamsburg Ghost Tour . If possible, we'd like to schedule it for Thursday, May 20th from 8:00-9:00 p.m., just as last year. You did an outstanding job, as the kids have recommended you once again for this year. Thanks for your help, as we look forward to seeing you in the near future!Sincerely,-Tom D'Angelo
We did enjoy our lantern tour on June 19th and will recommend you. Your knowledge was evident and quite appreciated, woven into the entertaining and informative stories. I must say the twelve year old was a bit spooked by some of the mysterious "happenings" and had a lot of questions. It was a fun and memorable evening.Thank you, Denise Pillow
What a special treat! It was a very hot day but the experience overtook any hardships. John Sutton is a born resident and has always had a love and interest in history, esp. local, and a lot you do not read in history books. You can talk to him about a large gamut of topics. He made everything fun and you were learning a lot before you knew it, and all with laughter, the best way to learn anything or to have fun. Anyone of any age would enjoy his antics, his insight, his treasure chest of knowledge. And he was open to any suggestions or information that could be offered by anyone. I won't give away any details because I wouldn't want to spoil the surprises, you just have to go yourself. You won't look at certain things or words the same way any more after some time with John. I look forward to any and all the tours he would offer anywhere, as well as repeat the ones I have enjoyed. I'm sure you will feel the same. A.S.V.
John – thank you for our wonderful Ghost Tour on our recent Ladies’ Weekend. We had a great time. Seeing the key move and feeling the coolness on our necks was awesome! We took a tour of the Payton Randolph House the next day and it was neat to see from the inside where ghosts sometimes stand! As we were waiting the guide told us many stories of her encounters with ghosts. The pictures of our Pirate Play are so funny! We had such a good time. Thanks again. Ladies Weekend Ghost Tour
John, We are home now from Washington DC. What a wonderful and insightful trip. We visited as much as could in our time there. Thank you, for what we knew would be and was a highlight of our trip. We took so much with us after your tour. I know our memories will be triggered when we hear, read or see anything to do with Williamsburg. So, John enjoy the autumn season. Our leaves are turning just this week and we lit our fireplace for the first time last night. Best Regards, Linda and Jim Cronin
I wanted to THANK YOU so much or the AMAZING TOUR in Williamsburg last week. We just got back from vacation and it was definitely the highlight. It was so informative and FUN. I learned so much. Thank you for taking the time to spend with us!!!!!We purchased the book you suggested. "defend this old town" and we can't wait to start reading. TAKE CARE!!!Heather and Michael Savage
Thank you again! We talked about the tours all the way home and everyone loves their maps,it definitely made the trip more interesting and gave us some great memories that will last a lifetime.
We will be back with another group in a year or two so I am sure we will see each other again.See you soon, The comedian club from Buffalo
We all truly enjoyed your knowledge and your presentation. Students were taking this morning about the little play you put together. Thank you very much for everything. Our Academy will definitely keep you in mind if any more field trips come up or as reference to other schools. Sincerely Claudio R., Science Teacher
Just wanted you to know what a great day we had with you--Jim calls it the most informative and enlightening tour we've ever had.
Keep up the good work! Jim & Thirza
