    Chris was our guide and it was like you were sitting with Wikipedia next to you! He knew SO much great information and made history come alive. The Victorian Horse Carriage company made every effort to make this event fantastic.

    Our tour guide was very knowledge and animated at times which added to the experience. Seeing the bullets to the mussel loaders was interesting and learning about the different types of cannon balls.

    Victorian Horse Carriage ride was Awesome. We slowly made our way through the battlefield and the guide was able to not only tell about the battle, but insights we never knew.

    I really am not sure. I do know that being in the carriage you felt like you were on the battlefield where as the bus tour sits up higher and you have a glare when you’re trying to take pictures out of the window.
