We only got off the bus at one site, the rest of the time we just rolled by. The driver was not very interesting making the history seem boring. We had to drive the route on our own for pictures.

Although I have visited Gettysburg often I have taken this tour several times and found it informative and worth the money. Since I have Graduate Degree in American History I can validate that the facts and information that they provide is indeed accurate and appropriate. If this is your first visit this will provide you with some idea of what... More

This was nothing more than the fast food version of a tour. Drove past hundreds of beautiful monuments and landmarks with only a running dialogue of quick highlights and corny jokes. I expected more quality for my 30 dollar 'meal' . Now I understand why so many people were doing the driving tour

Step on guide at Gettysburg battlefield. Extremely knowledgeable guide that was able to explain strategies and politics of the time. Multiple stops on the trip allowed us to get off the bus and walk onto the battle field. Even if you are not a Civil War buff, you will develop an appreciation of this time in our history.

We really enjoyed this tour, our guide was excellent and made the experience rich and memorable. The tour is about 2 hours but it goes by really fast. Make sure to take the time to visit the museum after your bus tour, it's worth your time.

Well worth it. The tour guide will talk and explain what you are seeing during the entire 2 hour bus tour. We also included the movie and Cyclorama, well worth the extra fee.

Our group of four adults, two 14 year olds and one 13 year old did the double decker bus tour the last weekend in June. It was less than a week from the 150th anniversary of the battle so it had a bit more historical significance, plus it gave us an idea of the weather conditions that they would have... More

I want to start by saying that the tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable and we learned lots from him. The reason for the average rating at this Excellent location is because our tour passed by many places I would have liked to stopped. The tour finished up at the end of Pickett's March but by that time it was... More
