“Husband & Son Love This”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

This is the second year that my husband and son rented a "Scoot Coupe" (2 seater) from GettyPeds during our visit to Gettysburg. Since we visit twice a year they no longer needed a tour or an escort, just their own "touring car" for an hour. They love the thrill of zipping around town and the battlefield in their little coupe, looking cool, and acknowledging all the smiles and waves from curious onlookers. We were happy to see that the company has apparently found its niche, by offering tours as well as just independent rentals. The staff is friendly and accommodating, and were happy to help with recommendations, directions, and driving instructions for my husband who initially couldn't figure out how to back up! Tired of the same old bus tour? Book a private tour, or just drive yourself around town for an hour. I'll bet it will be a highlight of your trip to Gettysburg! Prices are reasonable.

“worth it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

I had a blast on this tour! The workers were really nice and made sure everyone was comfortable riding in the scooters before going out onto the battlefields. Our guide, Bill, was the best ever! He knew that we were there to ride and not to stop at every single site. He was super funny and made the tour a good time. He asked us where we wanted to go and we went wherever we wanted. Our guide that stayed with the scooters was really nice as well! All around amazing, fun, and lots of jealous looks from bystanders. I can't recommend this enough!

“"Best tour of the battlefields yet!"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

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.

“Wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

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.

“Perfect way to tour the Battlefield!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

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.
