I'm gonna start with the only negative aspect. The sound system for the headsets on the buses needs to be upgraded. Staticky and very slightly garbled is no way to listen to a bus tour. Ok, now on to the good stuff. A young child puked on the steps of the bus just after most people had boarded, so the... More

Went as a family on a haunted bus ride at night. Had a fun time and learned things we had not heard before.

We have visited Gettysburg 4 or 5 times, but had never taken the bus tour. We wanted to see if we could learn more - and we did. Our guide had so much knowledge I'm sure it would have been nice to have him talk to us all day, instead of just 2 hours. We learned where the North was... More

The bus tour is a must. Very informative and they stop so you can get out and look at different areas. It is a couple hour tour but goes by very quickly.

We got there and didn't realize how busy it was. We got the last two seats for the next two hours. When you get off you can leave your car and walk the boulevard. We really enjoyed the history about the area. The bus stops twice for you to get out and takes pictures. We felt it was worth the... More

The bus driver and narrator seems good. Unfortunately the bus was so noisy (it was the open bus on top), we were enclosed on the bottom that I could only hear about 10%, my wife said she fared much better and heard almost everything but with difficulty. Probably a worthwhile tour but you better make sure you can hear it... More

We rode the top of the Double Decker bus on a very hot day. The seats are little close together but what a great trip! The ride was beautiful. All through town and then the battle field. Our tour guide was terrific. He was so very knowledgeable. I know we saw things that we would not have seen on our... More

The tour guide made the bus tour so interesting by his commentaries and explanations. He was able to make us imagine how everything looked back during the battles in Gettysburg.
