We took the Gravediggers Tour tonight. Patty (tour guide) was very knowledgeable and friendly. It was just my husband and I on the tour so we had the guide to ourselves. She has a lot of great stories that were really interesting.

This tour was a blast! You get walk around to different areas of Gettysburg and learn how the war affected the civilians at that time. Patty is knowledgeable and answers any questions you may have. My teenager who doesn’t like history, enjoy it.

we did the aftermath tour which was a historical tour as opposed to the many ghost and spooky tours available in Gettysburg. Our tour guide Patty was very knowledgeable, interesting and patient with the many questions people asked.
