This two-hour bus tour is available at the Tourist Center. Please consider the package of this tour plus the movie, Cyclorama, and Museum, which will be a savings for you. The bus tour is narrated by a Civil War expert. You are taken to areas that follow the war chronologically as events occurred in Gettysburg. The bus is very comfortable... More

Two-hour tour with a docent. Our guide was incredible. We learned more about this historical and sacred place than we did in school and college! Covered all of the entire battlefield areas with 4 walking tours. You won't regret spending the time.

We did the Gettysburg Battlefield enclosed bus tour. Our tour originated at the downtown Gettysburg tour center. While advertised as a 2-hour tour, it was actually longer to allow for the pickup and drop off of people catching the tour bus at the Visitor Center at the national park. I would recommend catching the tour at the visitor center instead... More

The tour guide was pretty informative. There is a ton of information about this very important battlefield and there is certainly no way to get through it all in an hour tour. The park was very well maintained and I never knew there were so many monuments. Very nice tour.

We stopped twice for to get off to take photos and walk around. Our narrator was very knowledgeable and shared lots of good information. After... More

I've done the battlefield trail by bike, and the auto tour and a commercial bus tour. But they all paled in the face of this tour with a professional and licensed guide. Great presentation! I highly recommend this tour!!

The bus tour was okay they just played a tape and it was so so. So I decided to take a local tour and it was great i will look up the name and let you know. It was with old 1921 and 1922 cars and buses. It was the best tour in Gettysburg it's on the strip sunk down... More

Our audio tour is for the visitor who is looking for the basic information and it is dramatized in stereo with background effects. However, we do offer tours with Licensed Battlefield Guides that you are able to answer questions. On your next visit you may want to give this a try or another option is to hire a Licensed Battlefield... More

This was the second time we took a bus tour of the battlefields. Our first tour guide was awesome - he was funny and told a lot of human interest stories. We went back with our nine-year-old and 12-year-old thinking they would enjoy hearing the stories about the battles. Unfortunately the tour guide we received for this tour was not... More

The guide Paul and driver Amy were very kind and patient with us. We had so many questions and Paul had all the right answers for them. He made us feel like we were actually standing there at the time of the Civil War. We would never understand the reason behind and drove right by if it wasn't for Paul.... More

Highly recommend for first time visitors or if you only have a short time. 2 hour duration but jammed with info yet guide made it very interesting and fun, even for kids. Several stops and bathroom break in the middle
