    Great App to Use
    This worked so well. I’ve used similar in other parts of the country. This worked just as well. No issues with it following us along. Great information as well as other extra short add ons information in some areas. We listened to it all. We spent around 3-4 hours .. we stop at all areas to see. We did miss one area (Devils Den) so after we finished the cemetery we were able to easily find where to go and it restarted right where we needed it to. Highly recommended it for Gettysburg National Military Park.

    A great experience.
    Gettysburg has always been on my bucket list. I was a little skeptical of this type of tour but was pleasantly surprised. There were several spots I spent extra time at because of the flexibility. I think I would have been disappointed with a bus tour being rushed through it. I would definitely do this tour with a family. The price was also good.

    Good narration of the town & battlefield.
    The auto tour was the perfect choice for us as it was extremely hot. We were able too see almost everything from our the air conditioned car. If we come back later, we can do the pieces that we would have liked to- that involved walking the cemetery - for example- on a cooler day.

    Great for a short amount of time
    We got into Gettysburg late and were tired but since we had to leave early in the morning and wanted a taste of the Battle, we purchased this tour. It was perfect. Very inexpensive. Plus we could stop when it started to get dark and then pick up at the end of the tour. Now I am reading all the scripts of what we missed, as they are still available in the app. The technology of this app is really amazing. Highly recommend.

    Fun and smart way to explore the battlefield
    Very easy to use and directions were simple to follow. It took a minute to figure out how it worked but after we got to the first location it started on its own. This tour was excellent because it combined the historical significance of the locations around Gettysburg, but also wove in stories of hauntings and creepy stories. This was a way to do the history tour without too much of the war and battle explanations, which aren’t everyone’s thing. I liked how it instructed you to park and then just stopped playing until you’re driving at a new location. We got to go the entire way at our own pace and explore when we wanted to. WAY better than a guided walking tour in the summer heat!!

    Excellent tour!
    This was a great way to tour Gettysburg! It was easy to follow and the narrator was fun to listen to. It was nice to move at our own pace and stop where we wanted to for photos. I highly recommend this tour!

    Does not work with CarPlay
    We bought this for our tour as it seemed to be exactly what we needed and showed us what we wanted. BUYER BEWARE: It does not work with Apple CarPlay, it will only give you the audio. We were on our motorcycle which has Apple CarPlay, we use it all the time for Google Maps, Amazon Music, etc and it works great. We got the app, uploaded the map ahead of time as they recommend and when we plugged the phone into the bike, it played the narration but the map did not show on the bike display. It is impossible and unsafe to be riding a motorcycle with one hand and playing with your phone with the other hand. This Tour App was totally useless to us as we were not able to use it. It was a complete waste of $15.

    Fantastic- a definite must if you have a car & don’t want to deal with crowds
    This Self Guided App made this experience so great. It took a few stops to get the hang of it but once we did it was perfect. It was informational, kept time with our location and easy to follow. We had to go quickly through the end due to time but it led us around in such an easy to follow direction so it was not a problem. Our only bummer was we didn’t have more time. Wonderful.

    A real person is better than the app in this case.
    If you have a map of the battle area ahead of time, this app/tour might be more helpful. So if you go with this app, I suggest looking at a battle field map ahead of time. We had trouble getting the app to work with our rental car. It did some of the time. We pivoted and just used the phone. Some of the "circle areas of information" are just driving instructions. Without background, we were not really sure what we were looking at based on the information given in the tour. Several times, the app voice told us that we could learn more information from other tours we could purchase. If we would have purchased the other information, it would have been the same cost as a personal tour. When we were at several of the stops, we heard tour guides discussing the stops with people. They were so much more informative. At that point, we decided it would have been more informational, more organized, and more time efficient if we would have paid for a tour guide. They are not that expensive and can be purchased through the museum. In addition, the park rangers give information speeches three times a day at the cemetery annex for free. Lastly, I read the book "Killer Angels" before going. It was recommended to me by a history teacher friend of mine. I recommend reading it ahead of time. It was helpful. One of the plot lines in the book focuses on Little Round Top. This was one stop that I really wanted to see. The app told us we could not go that way because of construction. It directed us on a detour. However, the route was open. We saw other cars proceed that way. There were no road signs saying it was closed. Had we listened to the app, we would have missed the one stop that I truly wanted to see. Overall, this is an okay app, but we would have gotten a lot more out of our time in Gettysburg if we would have paid for a private tour.

    We are not hikers. Great tour that covers the city of Gettysburg.
    We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. However, I believe there should have been many more stories included. This was a major battle and more stories and a longer driving experience would have been more informative to my children.

Good directions and history. There is a National Park app that has similar routes and history but the vocal guide is nice to have so you can pay less attention to a map and more attention to your surroundings. There were a few sites we would have liked a little more details but overall it was worth the purchase

What a great tour at an awesome price. So much to do and see. Great being able to choose if we got IUGR of the car or stayed in and what we did and did not want to see up close. Highly recommend for anyone who has never been to Gettysburg. This was our first time here and we all loved it and this tour. I recommend this for anyone. Families with any age children and for older grownups out on their own. Plenty of places to learn and let kids run and stretch legs. Very informative and easy to follow. Cannot wait to do the another tour in another city!!!!

This trip was amazing! Visiting these battlegrounds is a powerful experience that is difficult to describe in words. The museum is incredible along with the video and cyclorama. We went to Dobbins Tavern for lunch which was also a 10/10. I could not be more pleased with my trip to Gettysburg and would definitely recommend.

The background information, navigation tools, directions for how to best experience the bundle—it was fantastic. This is a wonderful tool, and we’ll use this product again!

Was nice to go at our own pace. Getting started was a bit confusing, but we jumped in about mid-way and caught up at the end. We were detoured at one point, but not sure why.

Thank you Keith! I'm glad you guys had a great time on our tour. I’m really glad you were able to figure it out starting halfway through — that can be confusing, especially since the “how to” is at the start. It’s great to hear that it was intuitive enough that you had a good time! The detour is very small (just a better way to get to Culp, fewer turns). Thanks again!

We loved the experience. Wasn’t always easy to figure out, but we got it all in. We especially loved the stories on the Ghost Tour. Those stories were so interesting. Battle facts are ape1sy to come by, but those stories were special.
