We visited Gettysburg with our family and we had a teenager on board. She thought it was the best historical site she's visited in the US so far. I recommend to start with the museum to go on a bus tour equipped with the knowledge, especially, if you're are a foreigner like me. The heroic acts and stories were truly... More

We made reservations with the Gettysburg Battlefield Bus Tours and boarded a bus with other strangers with a very knowledgeable but a little cocky licensed guide. This allowed all of our party, including our car driver to enjoy and see the whole tour as... More

We went on the tour that was done by a tour guide. Bus was comfortable and tour was very informative. I would have liked to see more but time was short and husband has difficulty walking.

Battlefield tour guide was excellent. She was very informative and threw in some humor! The two hour trip is well worth the time to hear the history of the battle.

My boyfriend and I took the 10am tour and we had a phenomenal guide. Her name was Christina and she was so well educated about the 3 days of battle. I learned so much and we got to see a lot. The bus only stops at Little Round top, but there are plenty of opportunities to take photos. This is... More

I loved this tour! Our tour guide and the bus driver were knowledgeable, friendly and funny! It was awesome to see where the Confederates were positioned on the hillside, the many monuments erected in the battlefields, just everything! Great price, too-$30 for a 2 hour bus tour :)

My family and I did the double decker bus tour. Word of advice - take a jacket! lol The tour lasted about two hours, and it was incredibly informative. I must admit, I couldn't take everything in the guide was saying to us over the headphones....it's a lot of information in such a short time period. But if you're into... More
