Exceptional tour
about 5 days ago
Loved the tour. I was amazed when I realized the narrator, Dr. Wendell was live and not a recording. He really made history come to life and later visited with passengers to answer questions. Only negative was smoking allowed and there were no ash trays available so cigarette butts were thrown in the river-not good. Even though smoking is only allowed outside if you are near a smoker you have to breathe the smoke. Otherwise the trip was fantastic and very informative.

All over a good experience ( with 2 kids). But there isn't much to see at the battle field.
