“Air Con Tour Bus with Guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Well worth doing and our tour guide made things so interesting and was so knowledgable. We stopped at significant places during the tour and got off the bus where our guide gave a talk on that specific area. My husband loved this tour as he has an interest in the American Civil War and I have to say that I found it very interesting too.

“A must visit place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Have visited the National Park a few times. Seems that they are started to charge for the museum. Sad to say that the new visitor center is not as good as the old. The old center was just about the battle while the new one covers all the war along with being a little too PC. Be sure to take water with you as you walk the field.

What can be said about this battleground that hasn't already been said. Unbelievable and moving. The sacrifices on this ground really makes a visitor contemplate.

“Wowed by Visitor Center and Park!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Learned so much history and background information at the visitor center and cyclorama. Worth the cost to see the movie, cyclorama and museum. Info desk provided info on driving to all the sites and were friendly. You can spend a few hours or all day depending on the amount of time you have. It was n easy trip from Philly or Lancaster. Highly recommend to everyone, especially families. We also loved eating Pizza at Tommy's Pizza right outside the park. Freshly baked with generous toppings.

“History close to home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Licensed battlefield guides take you through the epic three day battle. The field istself has been returned to its look in 1863, Over 1200 makrkers and monuments on the field. Each with flank markers to indicate the direction on each regiment in the fight. Extremely enjoyable while you learn of the American fight in the middle of the Civil War. A definate place to go. The battlefield has "feel: for you know something monumental occurred at that spot. Each state that fought there has a monument. The place where Licoln delivered the Gettysburg Address. You'll never forget your visit.
