Christina has a passion for this place that she passes on. This is not a dry stats tour. We already knew how bad the battle was. She put names and personalities into the mix. Great tour.

“Excellent Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

We were on a tight schedule and wanted to see as much of the battlefield as possible. The front desk staff at our hotel recommended GBBT so we gave it a try. Our licensed guide was friendly and appeared to be very knowledgeable about the battle. He was able to answer any question that was asked and his passion for the subject was obvious. We were also fortunate enough to be a small group which made it very easy to hear everything our guide said whenever we stopped and disembarked.
If you're looking for a general overview tour of the three day battle with a few stops along the way, this is an excellent tour to consider. Our only regret is that we didn't have more time and plan to head back to Gettysburg in August.

“Good Place To Start!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

First and foremost, you want to purchase the value package at the vistor's center. This will include the bus tour, museum, and cylcorama. Battlefield bus tour is worth the time, however, it is only good to wet your whistle. If you really want to understand this major event in history you must take the auto tour. The Gettysburg brochure has everything you need. So get in your auto and follow the excellent signage around the entire battlefield. Now one can also purchase an audio 3 disc set that will provide information that the brochure does not. You can spend a few days here and still be hard pressed to cover everything. We spent two and they were full days. Well worth it by far.

“Terrific Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

We really enjoyed this and we learned a lot. I think you get a lot more out of this sort of thing with a guide rather than just driving through in your car. And the guide could really make history come alive.

I'm sorry you did not enjoy the tour. The seats on our tours are on a first come first serve basis. I will be sure to pass the information along to the guide on the way the tour was conducted. Each guide has their own way of telling the tour. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your visit.
