I highly recommend this tour if you are visiting Gettysburg. Our guide was highly knowledgeable and helped put the battle into perspective. The carriage was comfortable and made ìt easy to see the area in 360 degrees. There were 2 brief stops which allowed you to feel more connected to your surroundings.

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and personable! We had a wonderful time on the carriage ride and I learned a lot that I did not know about the Civil War. I especially like the way he explained small details about how the battle was fight and how it was one. And what some of the effects were on the soldiers, the towns people, and the government at the time. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone! Make sure you get Truman as your guide also! Lastly the carriage itself was very comfortable, the employees were very friendly, and the tour was most enjoyable.
