REVIEWS

First want to thank you for the opportunity last year to tour the Chancellorsville battlefield with Gary Gallagher & Bob Krick – what a fantastic time ! It was the BEST 2 day vacation I had in years. I sincerely wish I could take all your tours as the sites & tour guides sound wonderful.

Brent Fletcher ★★★★★

Thank you so much for the excellent planning that provided the exceptional experiences of the Civil War Tours. If every student of American History could experience the pivotal events of our country like that, we would collectively be more intelligent and perceptive.

Julie and Kerry Smith ★★★★★

The tour was a fantastic experience. Having done such a tour I now realize that I would not have gotten as much out of doing a battlefield survey on my own. Having an expert along makes a tremendous difference.
