Is this a reasonable two-day itinerary?

Greetings TA friends. First-time trip to G'burg, wondering if this sounds like a reasonable way to get to know the area and its history:

Arriving on a summer Friday afternoon. Staying at Gaslight Inn. After 2-ish check-in, spend a couple hours at Military Park Museum and Visitor Center, see the diorama/film/exhibits. (Will Friday evening timed tickets this time of year sell out, or can we buy them when we arrive? Want to maintain some flexibility.) Reservations for late dinner at Mason-Dixon Distillery.

Saturday morning after breakfast casual walk downtown and visit David Wills House, then chill out at Gaslight before a 2 p.m., 3.5 hour Gettysbike Tour that takes in much of the battlefield with a trained guide. (Has anyone ever taken this bike tour? I'm a casual rider, but it looks like a reasonable 10-mile ride spaced out over an entire afternoon.) Reservations for late dinner at The Inn at Herr Ridge.

Head out Sunday after breakfast.

Waddaya think? Advice welcome. Thx!

Looks very nice.

We have taken the Private Battlefield Guides tour in our auto -- Always good to take a private tour

This sounds like a wonderful itinerary! The perfect mix of history, adventure and amazing food! This time of year is lively in Gettysburg, so it's probably best to order your tickets to the Museum & Visitor Center in advance just to be safe. We hope you have an amazing trip!

We recommend The Inn at Herr Ridge for fine dining, and we recommend

Herr Tavern (on property) for Crab Cakes.
