We hired a guide to help us with the battle field. It was the best ever. He was friendly, knowledgeable and clarified many miss conceptions. found him to be none bias to either side and well worth the investment

We had a fantastic guide who really brought the landscape and movements of the battle to life. The tour was two hours long and well worth it. I would highly recommend taking a guided tour.

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.
