 Where were you when I was sitting in history classes bored “out of my gourd”??  History has never been presented to me so vividly, yet, frosted with just the right amount of humor (Bus group for tours of Jamestown, Williamsburg & Yorktown) .  In my years of directing group tours, you are a guide unsurpassed!  Thanks for memories of a lifetime.

Thank you for the exceptional support you provided during the 2005 Commanders Conference Civil War Walking Tour. You presentation was one of the highlights of the Commanders Conference. Thank you so much for the very informative presentation. Many have expressed their appreciation for learning about the history in their own back yard.

After three consecutive years of leading tours for the Electric Utility Fleet Managers Conference, Colonial Tours continues to provide exciting and informative programs for our conference attendees.  As a meeting planner for a conference that returns to Williamsburg each year, keeping the programs fresh and exciting is always a challenge for me.  I am grateful to you for your assistance in creating more interesting and enriching programs each year.

Our retired members now ask for you by name in planning their event and the stories from your previous tours to Norfolk and Jamestown are still being told.  This year’s Civil War tour was a highlight and I am particularly impressed that some of the tour participants were so intrigued by your presentation that they chose to go back to the site on their own and do more research.  I also appreciate the care you have taken to insure the comfort of the few attendees with limited mobility.

Your popularity with the group continues to grow now that individual families within the conference group have experienced your ghost/lantern walk.  Your personable presentation combined with your knowledge of the local history and “you are there” perspective made it fun for everyone.

I look forward to working with you again in planning next year’s programs.  Thanks for your gracious, personal attention to our group.

The school was very please with everything; thank you. They thoroughly enjoyed your tours (Williamsburg, Jamestown Settlement, the sailing ship American Rover, and Nauticus vist) and only had positive things to say. John thanks for everything. I will keep you in mind if we have anymore request for your area and will highly recommend you to anyone looking on their own.
