Our tour guide, Dan, was extremely knowledgeable, had pictures and diagrams to better explain situations, answered all our questions and had us laughing with his ‘dad jokes’. The horses were beautiful and well cared for. The carriage was comfortable and we would do this tour again!

Our guide was able to recount several of the battles around Gettysburg in such detail that you could visualize how the Union and Confederate soldiers battled each other in a very bloody battle. He was able to point to ridges and valleys and tell us which Generals lead their charges and the terrible casualties that resulted. Very interesting!

Our tour guide Jim was very knowledgeable and we learned new things about the battle. They had blankets in the carriage to cover up with which was nice on our chilly morning. It was a very unique experience and would definitely recommend it to anyone.
