Great detail about the most famous battle in United States history. Extremely well educated tour guides re-enact the battles and tell the back stories of individual soldiers and how their decisions turned the tide of the Civil War.

Best- At the Signal Corp high ground- the Guide pointing and explaining where events happened. Especially knowing where the Left Flank bayonet action was. Also, showing where Picket's Charge happened.I visited my family and watched the movie, Gettysburg, over two nites. Watching it before the Tour enriched my experience on the Tour.I would suggest that new customers to do the same thing.Also, on Youtube there are animations of the troop movements. (search on- gettysburg civil war animation)

My wife and I were in Gettysburg for one day and took the bus tour of the battlefield. In a two-hour bus tour we learned a lot about the battle, the Confederates and the Union armies, and saw many memorials erected in memory of the states and commanders engaged in the war. It was a comfortable tour and the scenery was great. The best way we could have seen Gettysburg and a time we’ll-spent. We recommend the tour to anyone interested in the history of the civil war.
