What people are saying about Gettysburg

This was one of the best walking tours I have been on. Our guide took on the persona of a historic character who, as a child, had been there when the Confederate troops first showed up in Gettysburg on their way north toward Harrisburg. His tour was geared primarily toward how the troupe movements and fighting affected the local people of the town. As you walked around, you were introduced to characters as you stood in front of their home or business locations as of July 1-4, 1863. He was so good that his narration brought several of our small group to tears at times from the emotions that he was able to elicit. And, since nobody in our group had any pressing plans, our 2-hour tour lasted 3 1/2 hours. AMAZING!

Our tour guide Kenneth Rich was fantastic! Extremely knowledgeable and very interesting. He's a true historian and you can tell how much he enjoys his research and factual details. One of the best tour guides I've ever had. I highly recommend Ken and look forward to returning to Gettysburg and attending more of his guided tours.

The day before we took the bus tour and fell rush. We had more time to explore the monument and sites with auto tour got a better understanding what really happen in 1863 in the 3 days of fighting. Really felt that I was there on those day

Our group really enjoyed our walking tour! Ken was an excellent tour guide. He was very animated and shared an amazing amount of detail of what was happening in town during the conflict at Gettysburg.

So much history that you can truly see, hear and feel!
