The Gettysburg tour was one of our special highlights during our stay in Washington. The tour guides were informative and well ve...rsed in the detailed history of the battle. They gave us an eye view of the life of the soldiers and then the overview of the battle. Our tour concluded with a visit to the battle sites of the 3 days of the battle. We enjoyed this trip so much and came home with a much better understanding of history. more
