Licensed battlefield guide

We are going to be visiting Gettysburg Columbus Day weekend, and we are looking for recommendations for a Licensed Battlefield guide.

I'm sure they're all good, but if anyone has someone they really thought was special, we'd love to know his/her name.

Of course, if you have any other suggestions or recommendations, we'd love to hear them.

These guys and gals go through an unbelievable exam, many never make it. You'll have a great experience regardless. If you are from New York, they can tailor your tour to those areas of interest to New York, that itself is worth the cost. Best to reserve ahead of time, you can save by using their website, rather than the Government site, same guides, it's just the government gets a piece of the action.

Just to add, it would be unusual to find someone who has hired more than one guide so not likely to get a comparison. As a frequent stalker of these tours (hang in the back and listen when one is in my vicinity), I can say that never got a name but all were interesting and brought something you could not get from the audio tour or just reading the monuments.
