A Recent Review of this tour

Amazing tour giving fantastic insight into the battle at every stage. The knowledge and passion of the guide was matched by the ability to physically stand at the location of every pinical point of the battle. Would highly recommend to whoever has even just a fleeting interest... this is a must to anyone visiting Washington / Gettysburg.
