My husband I, who have had 2 previous visits with just the two of us, recently took our two children for their first trip to Gettysburg. We were looking for a way to bring history to life so that they could learn about the battle, and still have fun. Mission accomplished! Not only did the kids enjoy the tour (we rented 2- 2 seater coupes), but my husband and I had a blast too! The owner lead the way on his scooter, always making sure to block traffic as we were crossing the busy roads. He also stayed behind with our "minni hogs" to watch over any personal belongings we wanted to leave behind while we adventured onto the battlefields with our tour guide. Our tour guide Bill included the kids in everything he was talking about, and even gave them a replica of a bullet. This was a great experience, and even if we don't take the kids next time, we will be back to rent. What a great way to experience Gettysburg. Not one negitive thing to say. Everyone was "happy, happy happy!!" Thank you for such a wonderful time. We will never forget it.

Our family of four (kids 13,9) just rented the scoot coupes on 7/27/13. We were accompanied by Dave and Bill. The staff was friendly and professional. We learned so much from Bill while having a great time. A unique way to tour the sites in Gettysburg. We would highly recommend this company to anyone lucky enough to take the opportunity. We were safe and felt like it was a great value with our own personal tour guide.

Can't say enough good things about GettyPeds, from start to finish. The staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating, the scooters are perfect for touring the battlefield area and fun around town too. We rented one scooter and one two-seat "ScootCoupe" which drew an incredible amount of smiles, waves, and picture taking. We initially thought we would be out for two hours but the staff just said to call if we needed more time. We were having so much fun, the two hours were up and we hadn't even made to the site of the Gettysburg address. A quick phone call to the store and we extended our rental for another hour. Definitely the best money spent for a day in Gettysburg.

Forget getting on and off of buses or wandering around in your car! My family (Two adults, two kids 8,5) rented two coupes and had an absolute blast. The three hour tour went by too fast and the staff was not only knowledgeable, but accomodating as well. When my 8 year old asked about Devil's Den, Bill took him down to see it, even though it wasn't part of the normal tour. They provided a light snack and bottles of water. The vehicles were safe and comfortable, and the guides made sure we were safe when crossing main roads. We wouldn't do it any other way!!!

Rented 2 scoot coupes for the family to take the battlefield tour. Staff was excellent and gave thorough instructions on operation of the scooters. During the tour the owners were right there to make sure you had everything you needed and were having a good time. Bill the licensed guide was AWESOME!!! Made out 7 year old sons day and made him part of his battlefield tour. Can't say enough good things about these folks. Great way to tour the battlefield and a blast getting around. Go see them if your looking for a fun and interesting departure from the normal bus tour
