We enjoyed this bus tour very much. Our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. It was really hot when we were in Gettysburg, so I appreciated an air conditioned option for touring the battlefields.

Good trip, we went on the upper deck of the open-top tour. Went round a lot of the battlefield sites, good descriptions at each. Being non-Americans we didn't really manage to follow the complexities of the battle but tour was good

I always love taking the double decker bus tour. It is 2 hours long but you get to see the whole battlefield. We have had a few different guides but I've never been disappointed. It's the perfect way to tour the town.
