I cannot imagine trying to see and comprehend a site such as Gettysburg without the services of a professional Guide. A very stringent licensing process ensures that your guide is a true professional and really knows the story of the Battle of Gettysburg. The standard two hour tour is just not enough, we paid our guide to be more thorough... More

I cannot put into words the knowledge that these tour guides know. Our tour guide went well out of his way to help us understand all we wanted to know. I wish I could remember his name, but he was polite, professional, and eager to answer questions/share his knowledge. I may also add that we allowed him to drive our... More

Highly recommend the guides. We had a wonderful gentleman who spent two hours with us, in our car, explaining much about the battle. A great overview of the area, event, and history.

We were only visiting Gettysburg so I wanted to make sure we got to see as much as we could. I got an afternoon tour which worked out well. The guide was very informative and friendly and told my brother and I things I never knew about the battle. It's smart to do a guided tour first so you can... More

Going to Gettysburg for the first time, my family and I decided to get a Licensed Battlefield Guide for a personal car tour. If I could find his card, I would list his name as we were all delighted with how well it went. It couldn't have been any better. We got a great tour, starting from the events of... More

Even though my wife and I had toured the park on our own, we engaged our guide, Jack Drummond, and he made what we had previously seen come alive! His knowledge was fascinating and its well worth engaging, particularly if you have a carful. The guide drives your vehicle and this is a good idea. They know where to go,... More

I wish I could remember the guide's name as I should have, but have to report that this particular one, and I am sure the majority of his fellow employees are the same. This particular gentleman was so informative and knew what he was talking about. My only wish would have been that he could have taken more time so... More

John was excellent. Took me to a part of the battlefield I had not seen before. He was knowledgeable, entertaining and patient.

This is the second time we have hired a guide to take us around the battlefield. Each time we learned something different. When you hire a guide you get a unique outlook on the battle and each guide is different. I have been to Gettysburg seven times and would recommend the guides whether it is your first on seventh time... More
