We took the open top bus for a two hour tour of all the battlefields. They provide headphones and the guide was outstanding. They do not stop except for a bathroom break and at Little Round Top, the final battle of Gettysburg.

We took a ride on the double decker bus for a battlefield tour. We were really nervous because it was already over 80 degrees at 10am and it was an audio presentation. Not to worry - there was a great breeze and the presentation was through earphones we wore and it was live (I thought it was going to be... More

We took the 2.5 hour battlefield tour on a double decker bus. We reserved seats on the upper deck so we had a great view. Like the name says, the tour is focused on the 3 days of battle and the associated battlefields. It was a little heavy on the war strategies and details, but we got to see all... More

Was an interesting 4 hour tour with stops at various points for pictures and questions.Lots of various memorials and statues for view. The buses are comfortable and cool and the tour guide very informative . Wear comfortable shoes and clothes and bring camera . Did not realize how large an area the battlefields covered .

We took the battlefield tour and the bus was about 1/2 full. The guide was super and filled us with many facts and information about the battle. We spent the day at the battlefield and also in the visitors center. There is a lot to see and do in the town as well.

We chose this tour because we thought we would have more access to the Jenny Wade House. We figured for an extra $2 each we could have a ghost tour also. The Jenny Wade House was very good and we had complete access. The ghost part of the tour was pretty lame.
