Our tour guide was fantastic! His knowledge of the area and events was phenomenal. He had respect for the battlefield as well as the men and women that were present at the time of the battle. Loved the tour, thanks Phil!

We had a 2 hour tour with our great guide Phil. This trip was at the request of our history loving 11 year old daughter so he really geared it toward her. Without a guide I don't think we would have enjoyed it nearly as much. It was a very memorable educational day. We loved it!

The previous day before, my wife and I bought a CD from the visitor center and did the audio tour ourselves. We found that we wanted to dig deeper and decided to hire a guide. It turned out to be a great decision. Our guide, John B., was the perfect guide. Very professional, courteous and friendly. His stories painted a vivid picture of how the hours of each day unfolded. As he pointed to specific landmarks you could plainly see terrain features that were advantageous for each force. He has maps, photos and artifacts for visual interest. He often asks if there are any questions or specific topics you wish to hear about. This is definitely the way to go

We were able to book a private tour with licensed guide John Fuss, who was absolutely excellent. He went with us in our car and spent a little over two hours showing us around the Gettysburg battlefield and providing a historical context to what we were seeing. He was a great story teller and we consider our time spent with him to be a highlight of the trip.

I have been going to Gettysburg for approximately 30 years to tour the fields and town. The ranger programs and battle walks are first rate,and even better,they are free. Just go to the visitor center and either look to see what’s posted or ask one of the very helpful staff members manning the information desk. They are always finding out new information and creating new programs. Be advised that the battle walks may have you actually climbing over fences and climbing up and down hills. You can also follow the auto tour signs if you don’t feel like walking around,or hire a ranger to drive your car and take you anywhere to want to go on the battlefield and he will explain what happened and answer any questions. Such a great place to visit and great,knowledgeable guides.
