We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our living history tour with Rick. He kept our 13 year old involved and our 11 year old Civil War buff on his toes. He brought to life the entire history of Harper's Ferry in a way that our whole family could enjoy. Nice picture in the paper on June 22!

I learned more today than I ever did in school. THE best guide hands down. Highly recommended. If you miss this tour then Harper's Ferry is a waste of time JMO. All these great reviews speak for themselves. Glad we came here instead of Gettysburg's 150th.

You can walk around Harper's Ferry and view the standard static displays the park service has to offer or you can book Rick's O'Be Joyfull walking tour. This is by far one of the best historical tours I have ever taken. You will learn the whole history of Harper's Ferry, not just about John Browns raid. Rick dresses in period costumes and is a very talented entertainer. So hurry up and book a spot before Rick wises up and raises his prices.

Worth every penny. The tour was at least 3 hours and jam-packed with interesting, easy to follow story of Harpers Ferry from PreEuropean through to its present status as a (mostly) National Park town. Much more than the John Brown story. Very considerate (of shade, water, bathroom needs, etc.) guide Rick, kept us enraptured and entertained throughout. We will strongly recommend this tour to other adults. Not your boring Politically Correct history tour. Children should be at least middle school age, actually interested in history, aware of concept of diverse historical views, and have long attention span for history, to appreciate this tour. We would take other and younger children to the Harpers Ferry Ghost tour that Rick also operates.

Everything you could possibly want to know about Harpers Ferry is what this tour is all about. Rick takes his time, makes it a lot of fun, and is very thorough in his information and stories about this wonderful town. It lasted almost 3 hours, which flew by! Definitely worth having the tour with Rick instead of trying to learn on your own about Harpers Ferry.
