“Great Gettysburg Bus Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

The tour guide on this bus was exceptional. He was very knowlegeable and answered all our questions. We drove the bus route the day before on our own so we could stop and take pictures. Taking the bus tour the next day was very interesting because our tour guide knew so much about the area.

“Touring The Battlefield”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

If there were a return visit or if we were to recommend an attraction using this company we would having a tour guide drive our car around. It is the same price as the bus tour. The sound system on the bus left the hearing impaired missing much of the information. We were also nearly the last to board the bus and were forced to sit on the wheel well. Not much leg room in this rear seat.. The guides were excellent, they answered all the question asked, were very pleasant. The whole experience was well worth it.....from making the reservation over the phone, to picking up our tickets and touring other venues included in our Value Package. There are plenty of places to eat very close to the bus station, within easy walking distance. If there were a negative it would be that it is crowded and very busy on a holiday. If at all possible schedule your trip at another time.

“Battlefield Bus Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

This was our first visit and it won't be our last! We listened the the audio book, Killer Angels, prior to this visit to freshen our minds about this infamous battle.

There are so many aspects to see at Gettysburg that a single visit is just not enough. We actually bought the package that included the movie, Cyclerama, museum and bus tour tour. All were very good. The bus tour was perfect as the outside temps was well into the 90's. We stopped and walked around at several significant places such as Little Round Top and the start of Pickett's charge. Very moving. The tour guide Jim was spot on and his enthusiasm was contagious!

We are considering a guided bicycle tour next time!

“Absolutely, must do!”

Almost caught myself crying during some of the historical stories. Hard to believe our country went through a such a struggle. This will make you grateful for your country and your heritage.

“Entertaining and Informative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2012

After spending an hour or so at the museum watching the film and cyclorama, we decided to take the battle field bus tour. The tour lasted a little over two hours. Our tour guide,Jimmy, was very knowledgeble and SUPER enthusiastic!!! The tour bus traveled along the battle field and made two stops. At each stop we exited the bus, where Jimmy passionately explained the importance and highlights of each of the battles three days. I high recommend speading time in the museum first. That way the bus tour will make more sense. If you're here to learn history (and why else would you be here?) this tour is well worth it.
