After many years of studying the Civil War and visiting multiple battlefields, we decided to return to Gettysburg and hire a battlefield guide. We thought we knew it all but not true! Eric L fleshed out the 3 day battle with details that explained questions we had. I would recommend reading as much as you can, visiting the museum and... More

Being our first time to Gettysburg, we were unsure of how to experience it all. Our hotel staff suggested hiring a licensed Battlefield guide. Awesome decision! Our guide was named John and he was fantastic. He gave us a general overview tour which lasted 2 hours. If we had taken the bus tour it would have been 65 bucks more... More

The events that transpired here occurred over 150 years ago. In addition, more ink has been put to paper about this one battle than all other American Civil War battles, combined. These experts, the Licensed Battlefield Guides, have studied this battle and field and will craft individualized tours to your interests and level of understanding. If you want a general... More

We took a 4 hour + tour of the battlefield and could not have been more pleased. Our guide filled us with information and perspective about the 3 day battle. We walked the grounds day by day of the battle-it was my wife and I and our guide-fantastic-every question answered-the only way to tour.

On February 18th, my wife and I had the pleasure of being escorted around GNMP by licensed battlefield guide, Susan Strumello. Passionate, knowledgeable, and engaging in all subjects associated with the park, she provided a nice combination of battle information and human interest stories during our three and a half hour tour. We were able to request her services about... More

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.
