My husband & I were recently in Gettysburg for a wedding so we decided to see the "sights" while there. Gettysburg is definitely not what I expected, very, very small! It's just a small farm town where a 3 day battle happened. The bus tour was very informative & a quick way to see the monuments. If you're in Gettysburg I'd suggest doing it to hear more about the history there. We did the guided tour (not the double decker bus tour) it has a real person as a guide (as opposed to a recording you listen to) & you are enclosed in a Greyhound type bus (away from the elements) Our tour guide & bus driver were very nice & helpful!
