Allan is very knowledgeable and passionate about the area, battles, battlefields and his personal relationships with the actual soldiers. He brought the history alive so we could experience the bravery and sacrifices of so many first hand. Highly recommend Allan and the tours he gives.

One of the top days in my life. Allan was outstanding. The tour was fascinating. He answered all my questions and had pictures of the event that help understand the battle. This was a very somber and educational tour for me and our traveling group.
