We took our son to Gettysburg for the first time in January, 2014. We were fortunate enough to end up with John as a personal tour guide. For $60, a tour guide will drive your car through the battlefields for 2 hours. Let them drive so you can look and get involved in what is going on around you. We stopped along the way to get out, explore, and hear riveting stories of the real soldiers that were such a big part of our history. John made our tour life like and really engaged our 11 year old. He was very knowledgeable; not only about the war, but about some of the little known names and stories that made up this historic event. I don't think our trip would have been as memorable if it had not been for John our tour guide.
