The Battlefield is a little more than 11,500 acres of open fields, some patches of trees and a few small hills. This was the place of the turning point of the Civil War in July of 1863. Here nearly 100,000 Union and 80,000 Confederate troops fought and died in nearly unbelievable conditions. They fought with cannon, a mile away from... More

First, we saw the film, cyclorama (breathtaking 360 degree painting of the battlefield that makes you feel as though you're right in the middle of it all), and museum. Then we took a 2 hour bus tour of the battlefield. It was very interesting with lots of little stories about the people of the town, the battles, monuments, etc. We... More

WOW!!!! I learned more in a 3 hour tour than I had ever in school and more interesting. So much to absorb we revisited some of the sites and the Pennsylvania Monument the next day. The Visitors Center is well done and this is where we bought our tour. The guide answered tough questions about battle strategies for both sides.... More

We had a private tour from a retired Colonel who gave us a detailed information regarding this historical battle. We also stopped in at the cyclorama. A must see.

For anyone who has a hunger for history, or an inquisitive mind about how we began, this is the tour to take! Our guide was phenomenal. He brought us right to the brink--making us feel as though we could SEE the action itself as it was happening. His knowledge was remarkable. The most entertaining and informative 2+ hours I have...

We took this tour November 29, 2016. Our tour guide, Don, would have been perfect for a bus load of 3d graders, but was totally inappropriate for adults. He was in our faces and loud, filled with trivia while he often neglected to pass on more pertinent nformation (such as 'we are now driving along Seminary ridge..."). Don spent most... More

Sorry to hear that the tour was not up to par. Unfortunately, the Licensed Battlefield Guides are issued by the Gettysburg National Military Park and we have no control over who they issue. All guides tell their stories differently. We will pass this information along to the proper people involved to take steps in eliminating this issue. If you ever... More

Yes, I've taken the GBBT before but this time it was really terrific due largely to the outstanding tour guide Paul. Gene did an admirable service as our driver. Paul informed us of little known facts of the horrific battle. Thanks again, Paul-it was a terrific time!
