I've done the battlefield trail by bike, and the auto tour and a commercial bus tour. But they all paled in the face of this tour with a professional and licensed guide. Great presentation! I highly recommend this tour!!

The bus tour was okay they just played a tape and it was so so. So I decided to take a local tour and it was great i will look up the name and let you know. It was with old 1921 and 1922 cars and buses. It was the best tour in Gettysburg it's on the strip sunk down... More

This was the second time we took a bus tour of the battlefields. Our first tour guide was awesome - he was funny and told a lot of human interest stories. We went back with our nine-year-old and 12-year-old thinking they would enjoy hearing the stories about the battles. Unfortunately the tour guide we received for this tour was not... More

The guide Paul and driver Amy were very kind and patient with us. We had so many questions and Paul had all the right answers for them. He made us feel like we were actually standing there at the time of the Civil War. We would never understand the reason behind and drove right by if it wasn't for Paul.... More

Highly recommend for first time visitors or if you only have a short time. 2 hour duration but jammed with info yet guide made it very interesting and fun, even for kids. Several stops and bathroom break in the middle

We visited the Gettysburg Battlefield Welcome Center, museum, and we chose to do a self guided tour and not hire a guide or take the bus. In my opinion it's a good idea to visit the museum, watch the movies FIRST and then drive the area if you are doing self guide tour. That way you will have a better... More

The bus tour is a must do while visiting Gettysburg for sure. There's so much to see and this helps you see the most of it! Our tour guide was amazing and had tons of knowledge. This tour was worth every penny for sure and I will definitely take another tour because it was so great when I come back!

I don't know if all the guides are this good, but the one we had was just excellent. I think his name was Gary Vezza. He and the driver were very personable, polite, and informative. The bus itself was comfortable. It was a kneeling bus, so getting on and off was easier. The guide stopped at many points to let... More

We took the battlefield bus tour on March 26th and it was a nice group ft young and old and our guide was very animated and knowledgeable with the events of the tree days of July 1-3, 1863. Previously did an audio talk but the guide was much more informative and the events come alive.

I was amazed at the town of Gettysburg and the bus tour. This was a very informative historical tour. There was so many facts of the war and locations I was not aware of. I highly recommend this tour for any one near Gettysburg.
