What people are saying about Gettysburg

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!!

We went on the ghost tour with Jim (Séamus) on the 28th Dec 2021 and had a wonderful time! He was a great storyteller and made the sights on Baltimore Street come alive. Great way to spend an evening. Highly recommend.

Rich was a great guide. He was very knowledgeable and clearly communicated details about the battles and folks involved in the battles. Would strongly encourage others to utilize this service.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. Truly a terrific experience.

The guide was very informative and made the tour very interesting!
