Randy Gaulke and Knee Deep Into History Battlefield Tours is one of the most courteous, knowledgeable, and talented battlefield experts we have encountered, so much so in fact that we hired him to be the chief consultant and producer of our landmark PBS documentary series “A Golden Cross to Bear: A Story of the 33rd Division in World War I.”

I can tell you firsthand that Randy has extensive knowledge of both World Wars, and many amazing resources at his fingertips. He is knowledgeable, generous and very pleasant to work with. Working with an individual guide, I guarantee you’ll see more and understand more than being part of a large-bus group. Highly recommend Knee Deep.

It’s fantastic to see you out there hitting it hard and pursuing your dreams. Susi and I have watched as you’ve put a lot of hard work into the endeavor with a lot of soul-searching decisions along the way. Hooking up with Markus is a brilliant move as it gives you the opportunity to show people the battlefields from both the German and American perspectives, an element that’s missing from a lot of tours.
If there’s anything we can do to help out, let us know. We’re all rooting for your success.

Randy is one of the finest tour guides in the business. His attention to detail, knowledge of his subject matter, and his hours of preparation both before and after a tour day are only surpassed by his genuine concern for the guests; concern for their safety, concern for their comfort, and concern for their ultimate satisfaction. It’s not a job with Randy – it’s a real passion that his guests all benefit from. You will too.
