We have done some self-guided tours of National Parks. It is hard to get a full understanding of everything around you. We have done this tour with a park ranger twice. Both were different, but both were wonderful. How General Cornwallis got to this location...More

Hadf a free ticket with my Jamestown admission so I made the effort. I didn't do the audio tour or ranger's presentation, perhaps that may have made it more interesting. Not a lot to see.

We were extremely impressed by the park ranger's presentation about the battle at Yorktown. Despite it being very cold and windy, the woman gave an hour long talk about the battle and the background to the battle. She was extremely knowledgeable and clearly loved her...More

Instead of the driving tour, our scouts hiked the trails. By having worksheets to complete, they were engaged and learned along the way. We started with the movie (which is a must- about 15 mins) and headed out. We started with (A) and headed down...More

We enjoyed seeing what the battlefield looked like and how close the battle lines were and hearing why the British were forced to surrender.

My dad is over 60 and he was offered a lifetime pass for 10 dollars and is good for all national parks. We were there on a Wednesday and had the park to ourselves. They offer an audio tour so you can move at your own pace.
