Take this guidebook with you to Colonial Williamsburg, and it's almost like having a private tour guide showing you the high-points, and saving you wasted time getting around.

Buy it as a souvenir, and you'll have the perfect refresher of all that you've seen, with some in-depth information about the buildings and people of the town.

It's important to know that Colonial Williamsburg is, indeed, a living CITY, and there is more than can be seen in one day. The Official Guide to Colonial Williamsburg is a valuable tool for that visit.

This was a great purchase as the brand new official guide available to purchase at Williamsburg is much more expensive. I got this book knowing it was not an up to date print version. Not surprisingly, when we visited Williamsburg this year we found a few changes to the book info but basically it was the same. My copy came complete with an inserted map which looked like it had never been used.

This is a nice detailed book about Colonial Williamsburg including a fold-out map. It was a big overwhelming with all the history and details at first, but after our first visit to Colonial Williamsburg it proved to be quite informative and useful.

I was looking for a book to help with the history of Colonial Williamsburg and this one was perfect. It was out of date with regard to ticket info, dining, etc. but that was not what I was looking for. This book fit in my bag so I carried it with me at all times and read (sometimes aloud to my friends) as we passed each building and got a nice summary of the history of the building and its owners. This helped also when we joined in tours and programs. One of the guides saw me reading it and commented, "Ah, a true student of Williamsburg." There are also some very short bios of a few individuals. There are, of course, pictures and drawings but it is not filled with beautiful pictures. If you are looking for a overall brief summary of Colonial Williamsburg and each of the buildings I'd recommend this book. It was extremely helpful.

This is an absolute must guide if you really want to know what you are seeing as you walk the streets. Every building in the historic area is listed, described and with a short history.
