We loved the ambiance of the historical bus we rode in. We enjoyed the storytelling of the events, and it was cool to experience them on the road in chronological order.

The 2 1/2 he bus tour was great! Our guide Zed was engaging, knowledgeable and truly seemed to enjoy his job. Their bus could use an upgrade, but overall, the best tour I've taken and for a great price!!

The ride in the vintage bus was highlighted by the presentation and garnished with great sound effects. One of the best tours ever experienced and definitely the best in Gettysburg!

We took this tour in July and really liked it. It's a bus tour with a few stops (even bathroom stop!)...price was very good.
