It was a different way of seeing what it had to be like during the war. The guide and staff were friendly and helpful. I would recommend taking the tour and already have to some friends who will be visiting soon.

Excellent way to view the battlefield. You are in the center of it! The guide was extremely knowledgeable and The ear buds are a great idea. The horses are calm and their handlers have everything under control. I would absolutely recommend this attraction!
