We thoroughly enjoyed the bus tour through the battlefield. Our guide was knowledgeable and was easy to understand. We’ve done tours before and it’s always nice that every guide shares something different than previous guides. There’s so much to learn about the battlefield and we look forward to the next tour we do.

I believe our tour guide was Eric. He was extremely knowledgeable and described each event from the battle with such clarity and passion, we could almost see and hear it unfolding in front of us. Eric's timing and delivery were perfect and he expertly answered multiple questions from attendees without hesitation, meaning he "knows his stuff." He also asked open-ended questions to encourage attendee participation, and even inserted some humor where appropriate. Our driver was great too, though I don't recall her name. It was a very informative, enjoyable (comfortable air-conditioned bus with a restroom break along the tour!), more than reasonably priced experience, and something I'd recommend to friends and family. Thank You!

The guide was extremely knowledgeable and interesting. The driver and guide worked very well together. Seeing the distance between Seminary Rd and Cemetery Rd and looking at the battlefield from little round top put the battle into perspective. The guide had such interesting facts about it being so hot in July and the uniforms as well as underwear were made of wool; then to march the long distances carrying gear and weapons made you really think about the suffering the soldiers endured.
