Gettysburg Delight - We had a fabulous driver Amy, who spent the day up there with us. We explored all over the actual site with a great parks guide, and were able to explore the downtown area as well. Simply loved this tour and the introduction to a great piece of history

Wonderful tour with knowledgable guide - My mum and brother went on this tour and absolutely loved it. The guide (Christina?) was so knowledgable, they said there wasn't anything that they could ask that she wouldn't be able to answer. They got back a little late due to traffic (around 5pm) but everything went really smoothly apart from that and they'd definitely recommend this tour!

Gettysburg battlefield visit - A great trip, EMI our driver and guide was excellent, even returned a book that I left on the bus. Good crowd of people on the tour, the Gettysburg site is excellent and seeing the battlefield was worth the trip. Thank you Emi.

Brilliant! - Amazing day! Bus from DC on time. Battlefield tour was fantastic! Les, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and made the experience as easy and enjoyable as possible considering the bad weather. Gettysburg Museum was also very good, and the Cyclorama was just phenomenal. Thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend!

Great day in Gettysburg! - There is so much to see and do on this one day tour. I’d personally rather spend more time in the new Gettysburg visitor museum than go into the shops in town. Tour leader and bus driver were excellent. Amy did a great job of getting us there and back to the city.

Scary drive to Gettysburg. - The tour once we got to Gettysburg was excellent. However, the driver of the van that took us from Washington DC to Gettysburg was inexperienced, and many times my family and I were concerned for our safety. Please ensure your drivers are well trained and safe. Also, the pick up location for this tour was not in a good location. It was not well marked, and there were several large trucks parked next to the curb so the van had to double park in order to load us. Not convenient or safe for elderly passengers. This was in stark contrast to the Mt Vernon Viator tour we took 2 days earlier that picked us up outside a major hotel where we could wait inside. Plus that driver was excellent and well informed about the history of the areas we were driving through on our way to Mt Vernon.

Battlefield portion disappointing - The museum (film and cyclorama) and introductions were wonderful and informative. The battlefield tour was disappointing. The air conditioning on the bus was noisy, and I was stuck in back. I asked if anything could be done so those of us in back could hear and the response was "we will do our best." No, they did not do their best. I didn't hear much, and eventually just gave up. The driver to and from Gettysburg was fantastic! She returned to one of the last battlefield stations and allowed additional time before going on to town.
