A Recent Review of this tour

Eddie was a great tour guide and driver, getting us to Gettysburg on time despite an unusual traffic problem (sinkhole on the GW Parkway!). My 11-year old nephews so thoroughly enjoyed the day that for the rest of our stay in DC, when figuring out how to get to other attractions, the boys would say "Can't we just call Eddie? He could get us there!" I highly recommend this tour and the tour guide. Eddie provided lots of information and made sure that we made the most of our visit to Gettysburg.
