Relive the history of two watershed periods in the founding of America: the establishment of Jamestown and the events leading to Battle of Yorktown.

Your day begins with a one-hour drive to the Jamestown settlement, the first permanent English settlement in America. During your two-hour guided tour conducted by costumed interpreters, you will delve into the lives of the settlers who arrived here in 1607. Step back in time as you see replicas of the sailing ships that brought them to the banks of the James River and tour a life-size re-creation of the colonists' wooden fort. You will also have the opportunity to explore the Powhatan way of life in a re-created Indian village based on archaeological findings and writings by English colonists.

Before leaving Jamestown, you will have some free time to enjoy lunch on your own in the café and browse the shops, before re-boarding your coach for the drive to the Yorktown Victory Center. Here, you will have a glimpse into the historic events that essentially ended the American Revolution. That time is chronicled through enlightening films, exhibits and outdoor living history. See how the war impacted the local residents through their records of the events. Visit a re-created Continental Army encampment and listen to historical interpreters describe life for the soldiers. Meander through a re-created 1780s farm, complete with a house, tobacco barn and crop fields.

En route back to the pier, you will drive through the quaint village of Yorktown and past the Revolutionary War battlefields. During this panoramic portion of your tour, you will also see Surrender Field, where General Cornwallis surrendered to George Washington in 1781.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 3.5 hours of moderate walking, some of it over cobblestone surfaces, plus any additional walking at the guests' discretion during free time. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. As there is a significant amount of walking, the tour may not be suitable for those with mobility concerns who are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Weather appropriate clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
