Sue was a fantastic, knowledgeable guide. We cannot recommend this tour enough. We did it in light rain and somehow that added to the experience. It really is an educational tour and you will leave with real insight on the battlefield and decision making.

It was in a small bus and felt like a personal tour just for us. Very informative. A few hands on relics. They made history relatable. Steve and Dave were our excellent guides.
