My husband and I had a fantastic time on this tour. Apparently only 1% of tourists to Gettysburg see the battlefields on horseback. It is amazing to ride the same trails as General Lee. I would highly recommend this tour.

We pulled up to the area specified in our e-mail and were not impressed. We were so wrong! The guides were so friendly and knowledgeable. The horses were gentle and easy. It could not have been a better experience.
