I went on a tour with my Browncoat group on a Sunday. Our driver was very knowledgable, friendly and showed us a few special parts of the park. We got to see the dinosaur footprint as well as some lovely scenic parts of the park.

We are 2 seniors and enjoyed the entire bus tour. Our guide (Ed) was courteous and well- informed. This is the best price for a thorough tour of the battlefield and old Gettysburg.
