What people are saying about Gettysburg

Oh my gosh. This was WONDERFUL. I was very nervous to ride a horse as it’s been probably 20 years since I have done that but the guides for the horses were extremely helpful and I was not nervous due to their reassurance and assistance. The tour guide was legit AMAZING, even my 15 year old son agreed. He was SO knowledgeable and boy can he tell a story. I am SO glad I did this and would definitely do again!

Great experience!! The horse ride was a great way to explore the battlefield. The horses were well trained and followed each other so there’s no need to be an expert rider. The narrator was excellent with lots of details of the events that took place.

Such a unique, beautiful experience!!! Andie was incredibly knowledgeable, and I walked away knowing more than I knew. The horse guides were super sweet and a joy to talk to. I can’t wait to bring my family and friends back for another ride!!
