Having recently purchased the "Gettysburg Expedition Guide", I had to tell you how much I enjoyed this product. No book or static map(s) can convey the sequence of events as well as your animations. I also must commend you on the notion of putting an overlay of the current road system on the maps. This is an excellent device to help guide the attentive reader. The tour itself is first class. Altogether, I think it is a spectacular package, and at 29 bucks, a great value. I look forward to viewing other titles in this series, and traveling using their knowledge base. Its enough to make me want to get a lap-top.
These civil war products are THE BEST ones on the market. You can't make new ones up fast enough for me!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I purchased your Gettysburg Expedition yesterday from the Gettysburg Visitors Center and absolutely LOVE IT! It is an entertaining learning experience which I believe I will attempt to use to teach my students about GETTYSBURG. If it is your intention to make more of these programs with as high standards...I would be most happy to subscribe to all of the releases
I am delighted with Gettysburg. It is an excellent product which outstripped my expectations. I can't tell you how much pleasure and knowledge it has provided me and my family about the Battle of Gettysburg.
Do you have any plans to produce a Chancellorsville tour guide? I believe that it would be a very popular offering.

Let me tell you this is by far the best tour I have ever listened to on the battlefield of Gettysburg. I have at least four different tours by some of the best historians.. but this by far is the most informative.... Your speaker comes across with facts and with such feeling that you can relive the battle right in the car..
Thank You,Michael T.
We visited Gettysburg last weekend. When we arrived at the Park's Visitors Center, we were debating if to hire a licensed tour guide but we had no extra room in our car for another person. We decided instead to buy the TravelBrains "Gettysburg Field Guide". I have to thank you because the visit to the park which otherwise might have been "boring" to my wife and kids was made very interesting by the complementing CD audio and guidebook. We enjoyed it very much. It was like having a knowledgeable and well organized licensed tour guide present in our car but cheaper and without the need for extra sitting space! Excellent idea !!!!! Which tour guide are you publishing next? Are you planning to publish city tour guides? Keep us posted.

Simply put "It's the best thing out there." I've seen all the tours. There is no comparison. When your product came out this past summer I had a chance to talk to a gentleman in the parking lot of the [Gettysburg] Visitor's Center. He was carrying another tour tape, asked me what I thought of it and I suggested that he reconsider and buy yours. Met him a day later. Nothing but good reviews. In fact he had recommended it to others he had talked to. I'm just not surprised. This has personally happened to me a number of times. What you guys have done is great. Wishing you the best.
Dear Mr. Davis
I had written to you a week or so ago congratulating TravelBrains on its Second Manassas Expedition Guide. I feel now as I said then. It's exceptional. The two greatest improvements over the Gettysburg Expedition Guide, which is outstanding in its own right, are the narration during the battle sequences and the additional learning opportunities (i.e., the weapons segment). The weapons segment was especially beneficial because, in my opinion, it's the best presentation on the impact of rifled muskets that I've seen.
I would love to see Shiloh and Chancellorsville Expedition Guides. Thanks for listening and for offering such an excellent product. Both the Gettysburg and Manassas Guides are simply the best.

Gettysburg Expedition Guide is the complete package for a traveler to Gettysburg
Wayne Motts is spectacular. His passionate enthusiasm leaps through the speakers and transforms the auto tour into an emotional historic encounter with the soldiers and citizens of Gettysburg. The accompanying guide book complements the audio tour with sharp photos,of places, people, artifacts allowing the visitor to experience a wide range of topics in the context of the battle in which they took place. The guide book keeps the visitor oriented to the field that Wayne is describing with colorful and exceptional maps detailing terrain and troop movements. Dennis Lawrence

Appreciate your response, and I did get the order - and was I ever pleased with your product. I'm a member of the Gettysburg Discussion Group, from where I first heard about TravelBrains, which all was very positive, and found out for myself how right they were. My wife (also a C.W. Buff) ,I believe gave the ultimate accolade -" This is the best thing since the book Killer Angels, in understanding what happened there". Once again, a great product and look forward to future titles, as good as this one.

To whom it may concern:
We recently toured the Gettysburg battlefield using your audio tour. I was very impressed with the detail and special effects that are provided on the CD. I browsed the through the CD-Rom from the expedition guide and was also very impressed with the quality and detail. Thank you so much for providing a product of excellent quality. It was well worth the money that I spent. I'm in the process of planning a trip to the Antietam battlefield. Do you have an expedition guide for that battlefield?
Paul, I really was impressed with the Expedition Guide. It was well worth the money. For the first time I could really see how the battle unfolded. Reading in a book doesn't convey adequately enough the movements on the battlefield.I found the ability to overlay the road map on the battlefield map very helpful. I enjoyed the animated battle maps as it was easy to visualize what was happening over a certain part of the battlefield. I wish that I had bought this before I visited the battlefield my first time. I now see that I missed quite a bit. The roads in the park get you twisted around but after having used the Gettysburg Expedition Guide I feel I'll have a much better idea the next time I go.
Dear TravelBrains - Fantastic! My family and I just returned from Gettysburg. Your tape and booklet added even more depth to what was already an unforgettable experience.The balance in your information between military strategy and human interest stories was just right
The booklet was attractively presented, and the photos, maps and stories presented added much to the tape. Thank you! We look forward to other editions.
Hello, I really enjoy your products and am looking forward to the rest of your civil war series. Respectfully,
Paul - thanks for shipping my order so quickly. My wife and I really enjoyed the tour, and are looking forward to checking out the CD-ROM on our computer.

I have recently purchased the Gettysburg battle CD-ROM and find it the best CD on the market
When I recently went to Gettysburg for the reenactments, I saw the Travel Brains road tour. I already had a cassette tour, but since I enjoyed the other product so much I gave it a chance. What a find! The CD had so much more info than the others. Thank you for your wonderful product. I am looking forward to getting the Fredericksburg CD. Keep up the good work. I have told my other Civil War friends about your products.

I had the pleasure of using your guided tour of the Gettysburg battlefield last week. I found it most helpful. Mr. Mott's presentation was exceptional and made the experience a great event. I look forward to using future TravelBrains products, and hope for continued success with the entire team @ TravelBrains.
I am planning a trip in March to Gettysburg, DC and Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown. I ordered the Gettysburg Expedition for a Christmas present to get the family ready for our trip. Now I see you have the Civil War Battlefield and the Revolutionary War coming out. When will they be ready to purchase? FYI - the Gettysburg Expedition is awesome! Can't wait to drive the battlefield.
Hello Travel Brains:
I have just returned from many battlefield visits including Gettysburg using your Battlefield Audio Tour. I love your tapes & Guidebook as it is the best & most informative Battlefield tape tour of Gettysburg I have ever listened to.
