This was the best guided tour I've ever experienced. My guide, Dale, was very knowledgeable, courteous, receptive to my questions and loved History, just like me!!! I would recommend his tours, wholeheartedly. I understand Valley Forge, and its role in the Revolutionary War (and our military history), so much better. Thank you! RSF
