Bummer for me that I let my wife overrule the US National Park personnel in the info at the museum. The US Ranger suggested we do the museum and then pick up a guide and do the battlefield drive our self. It was a beautiful day and bus ride was horrible. Old people who had to sit "in their seat" every time we stopped, a guide who told us everything he knew about the war but little if nothing about what we actually looking at. For instance at the first stop we all went out an under a beautiful tree the guide told us about how the war was going for 1861 up to the battle. We learned about "witness trees". Then we boarded the bus again. Or were about to until several of us began asking questions about the immediate area around us. And so it went the rest of the tour, antidotes about the battle but little that related to what went on where stopped. We didn't even stop at where Pickett's charge took place.
For those going, buy the museum pass and spend some time getting into the time frame. Then drive the battlefield yourself at your own pace. I saw Segway's in use and they also looked like an option. But the bus? No as there is zero value added there.
