Thanksgiving Trip
Raeesa_W, Nov 2022
We spent Thanksgiving weekend in Gettysburg and decided to go on this tour. We are so glad that we did. Our tour guide, John was excellent and provided us with a great overview of the events that took place over the 3 days. Additionally he gave us some historical tidbits that you wouldn’t get on a self-guided tour. The bus we were on was very comfortable and our driver, Ron was great. The pace of the tour was perfect for us and we came away with a great understanding of this extremely important part of our history.
Highly recommend

Bob was a great tour guide. Fred was a great bus driver. I felt honored to be in the presence of such overall and detailed knowledge of the battlefield. Our guide was passionate and informative. Could listen to him for hours.
Awesome tour in comfortable bus.
Cindy_C, Nov 2022
I’ve visited the battlefield several times but learned so much from this tour. Our tour guide Eric was very knowledgeable and had a bit of a sense of humor which made the tour enjoyable.
Overall good tour
Mary_C, Nov 2022
The bus tour itself was very good - especially since it rained most of the day. We wished the guide would have connected his story a little more with the sites we saw. For example, we stopped at a lot of state monuments but didn’t hear anything about them. This is not a tour for young children - they will bored easily.
Would try another tour company
joe_F, Nov 2022
Bus was over booked - my friend was told to sit on an area in back of bus that wasn’t a seat. It was the engine hump I guess. They eventually freed up seat that was the tour guide’s seat and made room. Bus boarding process not as described to us at counter. Unorganized.
