Took a tour of the Gettysburg battlefield yesterday from a licensed guide. He was very knowledgeable about the park and the battle. It's mind boggling to image the battle and the number of casualties, but our guide did a good job of painting a picture of how the battle unfolded. Tour was two hours long and I wasn't bored once.

Based on others' reviews here on Trip Advisor, I also hired a Battleground Tour Guide and am very glad I did. Gettysburg is huge and you could drive around for hours not really knowing what you're looking at. My guide, Phil Musket (yes, his real name!) was so very knowledgeable and a wonderful story-teller.

This is far and above one of the greatest tours I've ever been on. Our guide Ted was not only extremely knowledgeable but the passion he used to tell the story enhanced the value of the tour. I would not only recommend it but plan to come back and bring the kids!

This was very interesting and well worth doing. We had our own tour guide who drove our car around all of the battle sites, to the town to show old buildings that still had holes in them from the cannon balls, and who told the whole story of the three days of battle. She had lived in the area all... More

Guide very knowledgable about the history of the war that was fought here. He pointed out the sights and the ridges where the fighting took place. He had a lot of information that he shared, but he was very matter of fact about it.
