We took the tour with our 11 year old grandson. It held his attention for the entire 2 hours. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and it was obvious that she knew her stuff and was not just reciting a memorized script.

This is a must do! Our guide, Don, explained the battle in detail with so much insightful tidbits! He gave us background information leading up to the battle and then explained the timeline of the three days of battles! Awesome!

It pays to get a licensed tour guide such as Paul as he worked hard to describe the history of Gettysburg in a format that all aboard would understand. Paul kept coming back to the 'fish hook' analogy to share where things happened so that...More
