Not worth the cost. Bus traveled too fast. Intercom was too loud. Didn't stop enough for picture taking.
Jim_G, May 2023
Getting off the bus. Auto tour would have been much better. We'll definitely be back, but we won't take this bus tour again.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
We are very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your bus tour. Due to the size of the battlefield, we are not able to make constant stops. For decades we have provided a thorough overview of the battlefield with a licensed battlefield guide. Many guests will take the overview tour and then revisit the areas they wish to learn more about. Regarding the intercom, I am assuming you were on an enclosed bus. We want to make certain that everyone can hear the information from the licensed battlefield guide. We are sorry that even though we describe the tour, that this was not the way you wanted to experience the battlefield.
Great informative tour.
