Our tour guide, George, was extremely informative and had the answer to anybody's question. The tour was a little over 2 hours long and we drove to different parts of town where George explained what happened there during the war. We learned a lot on this tour and it was fun getting to visualize the war by seeing where it... More

We booked this tour using Viator, and whilst a long day, it was a great way to get some understanding of both the Gettysburg battle, and the broader issues around the civil war. The bus ride to Gettysburg is long, but the drivers do their best to jkeep you entertained with stories, and a film along the way. We toured... More

Short sand sweet, this is in our opinion the best way to visit the battlefield, as our guide has all the information about the battle and passes it on in a light hearted manner without demeaning the brave people who lost their lives.

We had a wonderful morning touring the battlefield, being regaled with stories, strategies and historical facts while seeing the actual locations in front of us! It really made the battle come alive.

The bus tour is a wonderful way to see the battlefield and learn about the battle itself. It was great to start at the first skirmish and follow the movements of the battle until the last charge. Definitely one of the best ways to see the battlefield! After you finish the bus tour, you will know which areas you would... More

These folks bring the battle to life. You'll miss out if you do not go with them on a tour. Make reservations ahead of time for busy seasons.

As a foreigner (with a Yankee Father!) who has studied US history I found the detailed day-by-day explanation of the battle to be fascinating and the overview essential for an understanding of how the battle unfolded. The guide had obviously done the tour before, but he seemed to be fresh, interested, and knowledgeable and that made him interesting.
