If you have the extra money this is worth it, being able to sit on the bus as they take you through the town and battlefield stopping at the sites, the tour guide makes the trip not only educational but fun as well, but it is a bit pricey.

Further to my excellent stay at Liaison Capital Hill Hotel DC between the 24 to 26 August 2014. With a good selection of sightseeing tours available, I took the day trip from Union Station DC to Gettysburg Battlefield in Pennsylvania via local tour operators Viator. This is a not to miss trip depicting a very historic occasion in America's history.... More

I recently visited Gettysburg for the first time with family and a good friend. We first attempted to navigate the battlefield on the "Auto Tour" by ourselves, but that quickly proved to be a difficult task. We saw the Gettysburg Battlefield Bus Tours and decided to inquire. I couldn't be more pleased with this tour. Our driver was fantastic, he... More

This is an excellent tour. The guide was very informative and there were several stops on the battlefield. You are wearing headphones so you can hear the tour guide.

We bought the Value Package which included the Film, Cyclorama and Museum Experience and Battlefield Bus Tour. Go to http://www.gettysburgfoundation.org/18/ticket-prices-and-packages to get this deal. I highly recommend doing all. Allow a little more than 1/2 a day. The Gettysburg bus tour is presented by a Licensed Battlefield tour Guide that is well versed with their knowledge of the battle. They... More

This was an amazing tour. I had a strong interest in the history at Gettysburg, but even my friend who didn't, developed one during the tour due to such an excellent guide. Very informative, funny, knowledgeable, passionate, and had a remarkable ability bring the history of Gettysburg to life so we could really understand and appreciate what happened. No one... More

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

As a civil war buff, my whole adult life I wanted to visit the Gettysburg battlefield. 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.
