I highly recommend this tour. This was our family's second visit to Gettysburg. On our first visit, we took a horseback tour (also wonderful). We decided to change it up this time and we were not disappointed. Our tour guide Kevin was highly knowledgeable and energetic. He kept the experience interactive by encouraging us to ask questions. We had opportunities to stop and get out of the carriage at different points. The 2 hours went by very quickly. We left full of new information about this dynamic battle. We would take this tour again!
OUR GUIDE WAS EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE, COURTEOUS, AND TOOK THE TIME TO ANSWER EVERYONE'S QUESTIONS. I HAVE FORGOTTEN HIS NAME BUT HE HAD BEEN A LICENSED GUIDE FOR THE PAST 23 YEARS. ANYONE THAT IS CONSIDERING A TOUR SHOULD SIGN UP FOR THE CARRIAGE TOUR. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST! IV'E BEEN TO THE BATTLE FIELD ABOUT 5 TIMES AND THIS IS THE WAY TO GO.
the guide spoke the entire two hours and was as expected very learned. we had hoped to take the 2 hour horse ride, but decided on the carriage instead. this was a good choice as you were always facing the speaker, didn't need to watch where you were going, and as an older hard of hearing male, i could hear the entire time.
Our Guide Jim was amazing: so much knowledge and so may facts to share- Diorama n Cyclorama were cool but the carriage tour gets you down on the ground and you really acknowledged the immensity of the battle field and topography - as animal lovers we all appreciated how well the horses are kept- too
Wonderful way to experience the battlefield. The guide was knowledgeable and gave details not included on the Park's audio tour. He was especially GREAT interacting with the youth on the ride. Kids can easily get boarded with history, but the younger family members on the trip were really engaged.
