We have been to Gettysburg 12 times (in 25 yrs). We have done the Battlefield Tours via car, bus, double decker bus, small group w guide. The Battlefield Carriage Ride was the best! The Drivers, the horse, & our very knowledgeable Guide were awesome! We loved every minute! Thank you so much!

We had a wonderful time. The gals that were in charge of the horses, truly love those big beautiful animals. Our guide was so knowledgeable about the battles that took place in Gettysburg, you could almost envision what was going on during those three days. I highly recommend doing this tour if you find yourself in Gettysburg.

We took the 2 hour horse drawn carriage ride and would highly recommend it! You have great visibility and the guide was terrific. Taking the tour on our first day laid the groundwork for great understanding of the battle. We experienced 89 degree temps with slight breeze and yet we were not terribly uncomfortable. The soldiers at Gettysburg were carrying their gear, wearing woolen uniforms in 92 degree heat! Highly recommend making this part of your first day at Gettysburg!
