I must agree about our tour guide. On the battlefield we use only licensed battlefield guides. They spend many years studying and completing the testing required. We also pick our guides with purpose in mind. That they be engaging and let our guests know that THEY are the reason we are here. Our guides are subject matter experts on many... More

We expected a horse and carriage tour ride through the battlefields of Gettysburg to be special, but our tour guide exceeded our expectations with his interesting, conversational narrative. No canned tour here. Wonderful - highly recommend!

Great tour - the Guide was excellent, provided in-depth knowledge and perspective. Answered all our questions with military-like precision. Combined with the open air wagon, this was definitely the way to see and learn about the battle.

A carriage ride through the Battlefields was the perfect way to visit this historical site. Our tour guide was very informative. A small map of the Battlefield would have been helpful as a reference. Even without a map, the tour was excellent! I would highly recommend a carriage ride and would choose this as a means of sightseeing again!

Ken Rich's tours are among the best! His knowledge and passion for the battle of Gettysburg given on the actual streets of the fighting are interesting and an honor to the men who fought there and the towns people who lived there. He points out the places of interest as we walk and paints the picture of those days in... More

I went on the 2 hour walking tour with Ken Rich, and the tour was amazing. He not only touched on the battle, but he mentioned a lot about the civilians who lived here. l learned many things that l never knew about the town, the people who lived in Gettysburg at the time, and certailny about the battle.
