We did the kids tour. Our tour guide was great, made it fun for the kids and even took time to show us a fossil of a dinasour footprint embedded in one stones on a historic bridge. Very enjoyable time

This is my third trip to Gettysburg and I'd always done the "other" tour before with the double decker buses. I wanted to do something different this time and did Historic Tour Company's Battlefield tour. The tour was great. The smaller bus and information by our driver made all the difference. Our guide not only explained things well, but he was very patient as there were very uninformed and downright rude ladies on the tour. I'd recommend this tour to anyone coming to Gettysburg.

If I could rate our tour guide, Steve I would give him 5+ ! Steve knew the facts, lay of the land and added dozens of stories to the tour. This outfit is now located inside the Gettysburg Wax Museum. The nostalgic bus only holds about 15 which is nice, however, we only had a group of 6 and the tour was friendly, interactive and relaxed.
Highly recommended!

We've been to Gettysburg many times and have used all the different tours, but this one is absolutely the best. Our guide, John, was fantastic. He gave a great introduction about why the battle was fought at Gettysburg to begin with (no one had ever explained that to us before) and he had so many great stories about the battle itself. The Yellowstone buses are great because they just the right size and you really get a very personalized tour. We loved this tour.
