We have traveled to Gettsyburg dozens of times in our 15 years together, but decided to get a tour guide for the first time this week because we were taking our 13 yr old daughter and her 14 yr old friend along. They will be studying the battle this year in school and really wanted to make sure they got... More

Started our visit to Gettysburg by booking a personal tour online. We have two young kids and wanted some mild history pointing out interesting buildings and giving us sense of what it was like to live in the town at the time of the battle. Maryanne came in period costume and gave us just that! She gave us several stories... More

Pat did a wonderful job giving a tour of downtown Gettysburg. My youngest son asked her many questions about the civil war events and she delivered with great responses.

A party of 5 took the Fact of Fiction Tour with Pat as our guide on 4th of July, we learned a lot and Pat's stories made it a lot of fun; the walk was not too far and my son loved the entire tour .. we spent some of the rest of our weekend playing "fact or fiction" ...... More

I have been to Gettysburg twice and went on the walking tour both times. Miss Pat knows so much about the city and its history. She has great prices considering the personal attention and the length of the tour. I would recommend this to anyone visiting the area as she knows stories you won't hear anywhere else.

Great activity for the whole family... Even the non-history buffs. It was great to get the personal stories of those living in Gettysburg at the time of the civil war. Tour guide was very animated and fun to listen to.

Our guide, Pat, did an incredible job of bringing history to life for us. While she did tell us many details of the battle, she focuses mostly on the civilians living in the town during the battle. Pat, I think my favorite story was about Mrs. Garlach. My son and I will remember this tour for a very long time.... More
