What people are saying about Gettysburg

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!!

Very enjoyable tour. The guide Kevin was so knowledgeable and entertaining! He really knows his history and put a spin on the story that really makes you realize the terrible toll of the civil war. Really liked the horse drawn carriage to see the battlefield up close.

Best thing we did in Gettysburg! The guide gave so much information including that we could climb inside the PA monument. We did that the following morning to get a view of the entire Battlefield like a drone view.

Dale was our tour guide and he had a wealth of knowledge and made learning history fun! Highly recommended!

Very informative and great views of the battlefield.
