The purpose and spirit of our Certified Tour
Guide Program is to ensure the candidate

its history, and to answer participant's 
questions accurately. Our testing covers
areas of history, architecture, and public
safety.

We encourage you to seek out those guides
who have invested the extra time and 
commitment by participating in our 
program. 

Certified Tour Guides are held to a higher
standard for your Williamsburg adventure!
