We had a great tour and we couldn't have picked better drivers or a better guide. Kevin was so informative and friendly and held our interest throughout the whole tour. Our drivers were so thoughtful and skilled and made us comfortable for the entire ride. This was a great way to start exploring the battlefield and gave us a well rounded education on the battle. It let us tour the battleground later by ourselves with information that increased our understanding of the events. If we ever come back we will definitely be booking again!!

Tour left on time and went to the Union side of the battle. We had a few stops and the battle guide explained what had happened at that point. Battle guide was knowledgeable of the events. To bad we didn’t get to see the confederate side of the battlefield. Glad we went but next day we auto toured the area both sides on our own.

This tour was awesome! My fiancé and I enjoyed the personalized experience. Our tour guide answered all of our questions. He was so informative! We learned so much more from the smaller group in the carriage ride than we did on the double decker tour bus last year. In fact, our tour guide on the carriage ride answered a specific question we asked last year and didn’t get a real answer to. We highly recommend this tour!
