It was a perfect experience. The guide provide us with details and visualization of the battle(s). He went above and beyond with providing details. And on horseback, you get to really ride through the fields and actually see it. The horses are Beautiful and well-maintained. Support staff is really helpful with the little kids and riders. Over great experience!

This is THE way to see the battlefield. Being on horseback allows you to understand exactly what the Union and Confederate soldiers could actually see from their positions. This perspective is not available from the tarmac.
