Best way to experience the Battle. Your one on one guide has a great amount of knowledge . It is a 2 hour tour, in your car, the guide does the driving. You ask the questions.

Tour guide was execellent. (sorry can't remember his name). Full of interesting information and it was a beautiful day to enjoy the battlefield. We even returned that night to Little Round Top for a beautiful sunset. All in all, worth the price!

We did not do the self guided auto tour, but friends of ours did and said it was great. They also did a tour with the personal guide, as did we, which I highly recommend. We are definitely going back to learn more.
