Really enjoyed my trip to Gettysburg. Not enough time spent in Washington DC. Hope to get back again in a couple of years. Guide was very informative and really knew his stuff.

We had a fantastic day on our trip to Gettysburg. I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in the Civil War. You are brought to the Diorama first which gives you an overview of the battle and sets out for you where and who everyone was. I loved the visit to Little Round Top. So evocative and quite moving. Our guide was very informative although he was quite dismissive of the efforts of Joshua Chamberlain which surprised me. No two historians agree on anything though so maybe not too surprising! All in all this is a great tour and a great day out.
