When it was completed in 1722, the residence of Virginia's royal governor was considered one of the finest buildings in British North America. The elegant residence of seven royal governors and the commonwealth's first two state governors was reconstructed on its original foundations and opened to the public in April 1934. The Palace complex includes a stable, kitchen and elaborate gardens.

Rooming Options and What It Means For You

The “Room” Situation… To Share, or Not to Share.

In the immortal words of William Shakespeare, “To share or not to share, that is the question!”  Ok so that’s not quite right, but it is still a good question.  We know there are pros and cons, so here’s a quick guide to help you understand pricing and what might work best for you.

So why does it cost “more” to travel as a single?  Well the real answer is that it really doesn’t cost any more, it’s all about the hotel.  Take the example of a brother and sister who are traveling and want their own rooms – they would each pay the “single” rate.  If they decided to share a room, they would pay the double rate.  The same thing applies to anyone who wants a single room.  While there are added benefits like no fighting over what TV station to watch or how late to keep the lights on, that extra luxury comes with a cost.

In terms of the tour, the hotel room situation is the ONLY factor that increases or decreases the cost (see below).  We understand that cost can be high for some people which is another reason we are so excited about building the solo traveler community – as you meet new friends and come together you may decide to share a room … just make sure to find out who likes Wheel of Fortune and who doesn’t before you book 😉

Sample Cost of Tour With a Single or Double Room:

Cost Per Person based on:
Tour Component 1 person in room 2 people in room
Bus Transportation $200 $200
Attraction #1 $25 $25
Attraction #2 $15 $15
Meal #1 $25 $25
Meal #2 $40 $40
Hotel (2 nights) $325 $163
Guide Service $15 $15
Total Cost of Tour $645 $483

As you can see, the hotel is really the only difference in the cost of the tour.  Armed with that information, you can decide if you want to explore finding a roommate in the Solo Travelers Facebook Group, or just bask in the luxury of your own private oasis.
