My husband and I loved the depth of knowledge and details provided by our guide. It was as if we were being given a tour by someone who had actually lived through the events. I would recommend this experience to anyone looking for a personal touch and true glimpse into our history.

I was so excited to share the Gettysburg experience with my children. Our tour guide, Rich, was in contact before the trip to let me know exactly where to be and when to meet up so that I was completely at ease and had no confusion. He also made sure to know what interests we had. The tour was geared SO INCREDIBLY WELL towards things that would interest our family and give us the most education! It was an amazing two hour tour, and in the end, my teens and young adults said Rich is "cool" because he knew so very much and kept them interested, and that this tour was the absolute favorite part for all of the entire trip! We learned so much and it was 1000% worth it so that I could just concentrate on enjoying the tour and get the full experience. Cannot express enough Thanks for a great family memory!!

My fiancé is a history nut who has always wanted to come to Gettysburg, but just never made it. He had read books and had a very good understanding of the battle and its participants. Therefore, he needed more than your average bus tour; he needed someone to whom he could ask detailed questions, and have a conversation. Our guide Rich was wonderful. He contacted us ahead of time to ask if there was anything specific we were interested in, and tailored the tour around that. He managed to satisfy both my fiancé who already knew a lot, and myself who wasn’t as knowledgeable. It was a great tour and we ended it much wiser than we started.
