Yes, I've taken the GBBT before but this time it was really terrific due largely to the outstanding tour guide Paul. Gene did an admirable service as our driver. Paul informed us of little known facts of the horrific battle. Thanks again, Paul-it was a terrific time!

We just loved this tour Dennis our guide was great the bus was clean and on time.The tour was 2 hours and covered all the important milestones of the Battle of Gettysburg. I would suggest always having a licensed guide the have to go through many hours of training and tests.

The battlefield itself covers approximately 30,000 acres, including large portions of the original town of Gettysburg. There are thousands of monuments... More

I was told there are over 20 miles of battlefield surrounding Gettysburg, and when you get there, you see many cemetaries and monuments, and it can be overwhelming as to where to even begin. That's why I thought this tour would be perfect, to give us a great overview of the events that took place here, and it was something... More

This tour lasted approximately 2 hours and covered all the important points of this historic battle. Our tour guide Joel was extremely knowledgeable and through his narratives was able to bring this battle to life in our minds.
