What people are saying about Gettysburg

Our guide, Truman was amazing. He broke down the battle into the three days it occured and literally walked us through it. So much knowledge. He answered all of our questions. He was a trooper because a storm cell passed through during our tour with high winds causing falling branches and then hail, but we kept on going taking cover in the car. He had many interesting stories that brought the past into the present. Highly recommend Truman.

We spent a very enjoyable, efficient and informative two hours with our expert guide, Truman, who really helped bring the battle to life. This is a fantastic way to tour Gettysburg, Both my teenage boys and senior citizen parents had a great time and were engaged by the chronologically told tour. We learned so much more in less time, because we had a great guide.

Truman was an excellent guide. We were fascinated by his detailed description of the battle, including the various leaders, their strategies and use of features of the local terrain.

Our guide, Kevin, was knowledgeable and adapted his presentation to our interests and wishes. He made the three day battle come to life.

Meeting up with the guide was easy. He wasn't very knowledgeable and very personable. All together, it was a great day.
