We bought the museum/bus tour combo at Gettysburg Visitor Center and was well worth the money (about $30 per adult). Was a PERFECT tour for a hot and humid day. Tour guide was amazingly informative and learned SO MUCH. Would definitely recommend to young and old alike.

We picked up the tour bus at the Gettysburg National Military Park. The tour was excellent. The guide was knowledgeable and recreated the three days of the Battle really clearly. Highly recommended.

This was a double decker bus, we were on top. The bus moved rather quickly and did not allow for pictures. There was one bathroom break and one pathway walk. Otherwise, all bus. The narrator - no way was this a historian. He kept speaking as if he was a General and made comments like "four inches of blood" over... More

First, if you are conducting a bus tour, it would make sense to clean the windows so it is both easier to see out the window and to be able to take pictures. The Windows were dirty and spotted, thus couldn't take photos. The main guide had some good stories, albeit some a bit embellished it seemed, but there were... More

I'm sorry that you weren't able to fully enjoy your tour. We do maintain our buses on a daily basis but sometimes the atmospheric conditions do not cooperate. I will address the issue with our maintenance. More

Was a beautiful day for the family Pokémon Day. Was able to find a lot of different animals while walking around the many sites. We took the tour where we went our own route through the park and really had a blast. I highly recommend this to anyone who comes to this area. Restaurants were awesome too.

A very knowledgeable guide allowed us to see the battlefield in a comfortable way, and actually learn something along the way. I felt this was a better option than having a guide come with me in my car with my family, but that is just me. The guide and driver both added a great deal to the tour, and stopped... More

The tour was good value and worth the trip even if like us you decide to go round in your own vehicle afterwards allowing you time to really see the amazing number of different memorials to the dead. The tour brought the sheer scale of the waste of life into perspective. Our guide sat facing away from the group and... More

We bought the value package (bus tour plus three attractions/museums to be chosen from a list). I think this was a good value. We took the air conditioned bus as opposed to the open air double decker due to the heat. The tour was extensive and covered several battlefields. We were taken to many vantage points around Gettysburg. Our tour... More
