I have visited the battlefield several times while staying in nearby Emmittsburg. This trip, it was cold, so i took the bus tour. Even though i have been several times with locals, it was worth the trip, due to the driver being very informed of the ebb and flow of the battles from a day to day perspective. Plus, its nice to stay warm while seeing the sites

This was the BEST money we spent in Gettysburg. Our tour guide was sooo knowledgable. I feel we really got the full story of what happened in this historic area. Our friends back home had told us to purchase a CD and take the auto tour. For once, I'm glad we didn't listen. I would recommend this tour to everyone who comes to Gettysburg.

I have already written my review for Gettysburg itself, but would like to address your options for how to visit the park. You can drive it yourself, you can hire a guide who will ride in your own vehicle with you, or you can take the bus. At first we thought we would drive it ourself until we saw the size of the park and then decided to take the bus. I can't tell you what a perfect decision that was. Our guide was so knowledgeable about all aspects of the war and had information on both the Confederate side and the Union side. He made you feel like you had gone back in time and were actually there. This is one of the best tours I have ever been on and highly recommend it.

The guide on the battlefield tour was the best. There wasn't a question he could not answer. He made the whole experience come alive and made the tour an excellent history lesson.

Thank you so much for your kind comments! The licensed battlefield guides go through an extensive testing program covering every aspect of the Battle of Gettysburg and the Civil War. We are very proud of what the tour guides are able to accomplish during the 2 hour tours. Each guide has different stories and perspectives to paint a picture of what happened here at Gettysburg and we are so happy you had a great experience!
