I enjoyed the tour very much. Bus left on time and the commentary from driver during the trip to Gettysburg was good. The guide who joined the bus was very informative - the whole experience helped me appreciate the battle at Gettysburg.

A great tour which covered so much of this amazing military park. The local guide was very informative and the Visitors Centre was outstanding particularly the cyclorama representation of the Gettysburg battles. We enjoyed the tour of the family home in Gettysburg which provided an authentic insight into how people lived in the 1860s and the impact the battles had on daily life. Would thoroughly recommend this tour.

Very interesting learning about one of the key battles of the Civil War, and seeing a house which Confederate snipers used.

Wonderful day! I talked my aunt and uncle from Minnesota into coming out to D.C. And they loved the comprehensive tour provided to us. Great historical views plus great account of the battle and how it affected the towns people and the soldiers. We had a beautiful day and a great time.

We thought this was an excellent tour.
Apart from the fact that the bus was half an hour late company fault, not the driver the driver certainly made up for it with his professional and excellent handling of the situation. We didn't miss anything on the tour and still had plenty of time to do everything we wished. It was a highly informative tour and I would recommend it to anyone going to Gettysburg. We were totally immersed in the experience.

Taking this tour of Gettysburg is by far the best way of visiting what is a much larger area than we imagined. The presence of our tour guide was also excellent, as he gave a running commentary on the many stages of the battle and in great detail.

This way one of the highlights of our Washington DC visit. Our tour guide, Dave, who took us through the battlefields was amazing. His knowledge and willingness to answer all our questions, made this day well worth the effort. Great Day, thank you Dave. Gaylene and Allan, Australia

An excellent tour at a reasonable pace. The Battlefield Centre is very well done and together with the battlefield guide you get a good appreciation of the event. For once you didn't feel too rushed on this tour.
