What people are saying about Gettysburg

Marc makes the hunt worth it. I really had my doubts about dowsing rods, but I can honestly say that my mind is changed. And blown. My husband and I highly recommend this hunt. You are guaranteed to have an experience. I have debated telling one of my personal experiences on this hunt because it sounds so far fetched but I can tell you that what happened to me was real and a bit unnerving. I'm using the rods and getting great activity, asking yes and no questions, being respectful, and suddenly I feel a burning, searing pain on my skin on my abdomen. It kept getting worse, as if I had a large abrasion or cut that was fresh and extremely uncomfortable. I pulled my husband aside and told him what I was feeling. I got up the nerve to ask Marc if anyone else has ever had anything happen to them and told him what I was feeling. We soon left the area and my pain dissipated. I truly think someone was telling me how they died or where they were shot. Just do the hunt.

Best thing we did in Gettysburg! The guide gave so much information including that we could climb inside the PA monument. We did that the following morning to get a view of the entire Battlefield like a drone view.

Very interesting to learn about some of the stories of very brave women of the time. Guide was excellent and very knowledgeable.

Cool time lots of neat activities and very informative. Guide Christi was awesome.

Very informative and great views of the battlefield.
