very interesting tour !

EDITH

A great tour for anyone interested in the Civil War, whether you are an expert or not. The re-enactors we met in Gettysburg made t...he whole thing come alive and were very knowledgeable. The cyclorama is amazing, particularly if you have seen illustrations taken from it. Our tour guide on the bus was brilliant and summed up the battle very well. more

Stephen

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

Judy

A great trip with the 'Bear' driving and keeping us all informed. We saw the entire battlefield and the Shriver House wh...ich is a must. Would recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in Gettysburg although a few days in the area would be better. more
