Truman was our guide and he was fantastic! He was so knowledgeable that hubby and I were on "information overload"!! Lol! The tour lasted close to 2.5 hours because Truman, hubby and I ended the tour just chatting about the Battle. Be forewarned though, that because of COVID he wasn't able to ride/drive in our car. He led us in his car and we connected via cellphone speakerphone. My car is equipped with a hand free system so it was like listening to the radio tutorial, so it worked out just fine. Hubby was a little distracted from listening to Truman because he had to focus on driving. If it wasn't for hubby having to drive, the experience would have been perfect!!!

My experience with the driver in the car was absolutely terrific. His name was Kevin and he was extremely knowledgeable. He made the scenery come alive with his stories of the battles as they unfolded. It became very obvious how devastating everything was with the thousands of men and horses and everyone that was killed in these battles for those three days. I recommend this tour with a personal driver to everyone. Kevin was very accommodating stopping where we wanted to stop so we could take pictures. He also stopped to give us more in-depth information about different parts of the three day battle especially big round top and little round top.
