Is there any bus tours that can be taken from orlando florida?
My wife and I would like to find a package deal either from Kissimmee or Orlando Florida that includes bus fair, motel room and tours of Williamsburg. Is there any such packages available?

I couldn't find specific listings for package coach tours out of Orlando, unless you're part of a bigger school group, for example. That's a long drive, too, so I'd actually recommend you fly to Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport (PHF) and get a shuttle transfer to the Williamsburg area. AirTrain is currently offering round-trip fares for around $200/person, which is not bad and will save you lots of travel time. You might also want to look at some of the hotel-ticket-tours packages on the VisitWilliamsburg.com website, which bundle lodging together with savings on area attractions and tours. They advertise a range of packages for different budgets and interests here: http://reservations.visitwilliamsburg.com/4531_welcome.html. Once you're settled in Williamsburg, it's pretty easy to get around without a car. Colonial Williamsburg itself is very walkable (VisitWilliamsburg.com has a link to some recommended walking tours), plus the National Park Service offers a free shuttle (until October 31) between the Colonial Williamsburg visitor's center and Jamestown and Yorktown. One last thought: have you considered taking the train? It's definitely a slow way to go (ironic that, eh?), but Amtrak offers service between Kissimmee and Richmond, followed by a local connection to Williamsburg. You'll be traveling overnight, but Amtrak seating tends to be quite ample for stretching out (at least in my experience!). Round-trip fares on the train are around $120, so not a bad deal. There's a long transfer at Richmond, so maybe an added opportunity to get out and explore a Southern city that has been seeing a bit of a renaissance in recent years with respect to its restaurants, galleries, and museums (the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts comes highly recommended!).
