Kelly did great job helping us set up for a tour. Our guide, Bob, was extremely knowledgable and as luck would have it we actually ended up with my husband and I getting a private tour with him. His passion about telling this historic story came through as we explored the battlefield. There is so much to tell yet he... More

Jon and I love biking, so we chose the 4 hour Grand Tour of the Gettysburg Battlefields. The Grand Tour was not listed on the website for the day we were going to be in Gettysburg, so I called and spoke with Kelly. Kelly was friendly and helpful, and she didn't waste anytime in finding a way to meet our... More

My family just did a tour with Bruce and he was great. We had the tour to ourselves (not by design -- no one else signed up), so we could set our own pace. I have a 9- and a 5-year old, and it was definitely too much riding for the 5-yr old. Unless your little one is some kind... More

Since I started bike riding three years ago and have been a regular visitor to Gettysburg the last 30 years I decided to look into a private,customized tour that I wanted to do with my adult son who is an avid bike rider and share an interest in history. I contacted GettysBike Tours to discuss a two day tour so... More

Our "Grand Tour" guided bike tour of the historic Gettysburg battle site was more than a scenic bike ride. Guide Bruce entertained us the way I would have liked to have learned history. While not the same as reading Killer Angles, learning about the three day battle and it's cast while seeing the setting made history a vivid learning experience.... More

Even if you're not a die hard cyclist you will enjoy this ride! Take a Gatorade & a protein/energy bar and you'll do fine. The pace is fairly slow. At home, we normally ride 10 miles within an hour. Here you will take 3-4 hours. Lots of stops and lots of interesting facts from the guide. This was our 2nd... More

We booked this tour based on recommendations from Trip Advisor, and because I had just bought a bike to ride with my husband. You can use one of their bikes which looked excellent and were the same brand as mine. Kelly who booked our tour was there to greet us, and because we were there after Labour Day we were... More

This review is for Bruce--thanks for an amazing bike tour of Gettysburg this past weekend! We went on the "Grand Tour" and couldn't have been more pleased. Bruce was extremely friendly, and knowledgeable; he answered all the questions we asked him throughout the tour, no matter what the topic. I was so impressed that not only does he have an... More

My family of four did the Yanks tour this past Saturday. Bruce was our guide, and he did a masterful job. He knew the history backwards and forwards, including obscure details, and he fielded every single question. Moreover, the battlefield should be seen on a bike if at all possible. The history comes to life as you pedal through the... More

This is my second review of Gettysbike. I attended a tour last year and when I told my son about it he asked me to take the tour again with him. Our host for the tour was Bruce and there were five of us on the tour. This is the third organized bike tour I have taken – previous ones... More
