Gettysburg tour was outstanding and really enjoyed the bus we rode in. I think it was a 1930-something Yellowstone Park bus and was a lot of fun and quite comfortable for our group. Great deal too for $25. Definately would do this again.

We loved the ambiance of the historical bus we rode in. We enjoyed the storytelling of the events, and it was cool to experience them on the road in chronological order.

We took this tour in July and really liked it. It's a bus tour with a few stops (even bathroom stop!)...price was very good.
