A great way to explore and learn about Gettysburg. We started our day at the Visitor's Center seeing the video, cyclorama, and part of the museum. After lunch we met our guide back at the Visitor's Center where he drove our car through the 2-hr tour. We were lucky to get a tour from Jim Clouse (29 years of giving... More

This was fantastic. Our guide got in our car, drove us around and really brought everything to life. We truly got more out of our visit than we would have otherwise. Seriously next time I come back to Gettysburg, I'm hiring one of the guides for the whole day.

It was my first trip to Gettysburg, and I was so fortunate to team up with John Krohn as my Licensed Battlefield Guide. John's knowledge and experience were so valuable and he brought the battle to life for us. Knowing that we had lost a third great grandfather during the battle of Gettyburg, John was able to tailor our battlefield... More

My husband and I took a 2 hour guided tour of the Gettysburg battlefield. It was well worth the money. The guide personalized the tour to our interests, and gave a good overview of 3 day battle. We could have happily listened for much longer.

This was our second time at Gettysburg Battlefield but our first tour. What a difference it made. I would like to thank Jack for an enjoyable and informative two hour tour. My family kept praising the tour even as we flew back to Florida. We will definitely return and spend more time as the weather was not prime.

A friend suggested that we hire a guide. My first thought was "that is going to be expensive"...but it wasn't. It was worth every penny! They drive your car & you remain comfy while able to look at all there is to see. Stop at a few places & venture a little while learning the history. Our guide had so... More

So glad we choose to have a guide who helped us understand different perspectives of the civil war...such as land,--lowland or high land. Where do you want to be when you are attacked. We walked around, drove around and viewed different spots where battles were fought looking at the strategies involved. After our guide left we had a great discussion... More

For substantially less than we would have spent on tickets for all three of us on a crowded bus, We had a guide of our own in our own car! Following someone's recommendation on this site, I made a reservation (online saves you money) and requested a particular guide by name. I was contacted well before my trip and told... More

We went online and reserved our tour guide in advance of our trip. Highly recommend. Or sign up for one, once you get their. Best thing we could have done. WONDERFUL tour guide who besides having to be trained and tested on the history of the park, had a sincere love and history of the history himself. The guide was... More

At the visitor's Center, we arranged for a private tour with one of the licensed guides. He drove our car (so we could concentrate on the sites) and was super knowledgeable, entertaining and the very, very BEST way to experience Gettysburg. We asked him to concentrate on the first day of the battle (not always the most popular viewpoint) and... More
