5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

Wonderful tour. Truman, our tour guide, was passionate and knowledgeable about Gettysburg and we learned so much. He also recommended a book that I purchased in the gift shop and that I am anxious to begin reading: Gettysburg: A Strange and Blighted Land by Gregory A. Coco. Informative, emotional and worthwhile tour for anyone interested in Civil War history. A day well-spent.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

Learned lots about this key battleground and the participants who were engaged and key to the battle. The guides were very informative.
