A friend suggested that we hire a guide. My first thought was "that is going to be expensive"...but it wasn't. It was worth every penny! They drive your car & you remain comfy while able to look at all there is to see. Stop at a few places & venture a little while learning the history. Our guide had so... More

So glad we choose to have a guide who helped us understand different perspectives of the civil war...such as land,--lowland or high land. Where do you want to be when you are attacked. We walked around, drove around and viewed different spots where battles were fought looking at the strategies involved. After our guide left we had a great discussion... More

For substantially less than we would have spent on tickets for all three of us on a crowded bus, We had a guide of our own in our own car! Following someone's recommendation on this site, I made a reservation (online saves you money) and requested a particular guide by name. I was contacted well before my trip and told... More

We went online and reserved our tour guide in advance of our trip. Highly recommend. Or sign up for one, once you get their. Best thing we could have done. WONDERFUL tour guide who besides having to be trained and tested on the history of the park, had a sincere love and history of the history himself. The guide was... More

At the visitor's Center, we arranged for a private tour with one of the licensed guides. He drove our car (so we could concentrate on the sites) and was super knowledgeable, entertaining and the very, very BEST way to experience Gettysburg. We asked him to concentrate on the first day of the battle (not always the most popular viewpoint) and... More

Well worth the extra money, paid for the extra hour lending itself to approx. one hour allotted for each day of the battle. Paul was very knowledgeable despite lots of bad puns. He had extensive battle knowledge and had many years under his belt doing guide work. I loved how he incorporated many of the monuments into the story of... More

We took a guided bus tour which was very worthwhile. We would not have learned as much on our own. We had an excellent guide who really knew his history of the battlefield. I was pleasantly surprised by the memorials built many years ago for the different military groups who fought in the battle. There must have been hundreds of... More

The Inn where we stayed arranged for a private battlefield guide/tour for us and it was well worth our time and the cost. We were met at our Inn by a very friendly, knowledgeable guide who drove us through the battlefield in our car on a lovely, cool Sunday morning. We stopped at many special locations where our guide elaborated... More

I called about 2 months ahead to book a guide. Unfortunately, when I left the message the day/date did not match up. I wasn't home to talk to the guide when he called that evening, and noone caught the error. About a week before our trip I got out the paper to plan, and realized my mistake. Despite several phone...
