What people are saying about 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!

The narrator of this guided tour of Gettysburg was amazing. His knowledge of this deadly 3 day battle was bar none. The carriage crew were also incredible. They handled their horse team with skill. They also assisted people with disabilities getting on and off the carriage. I highly recommend taking this tour first then do your own driving tour.

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.

The tour was excellent, the carriage tour is very interesting, You can see the statues better and the guide was very knowledgeable.

Very inform and easy to listen to. Learned many new facts and insights. Well worth the time and great weather too!
