Christina was very knowledgeable. The best licensed battlefield guide we have seen. She even pointed out the state monuments for all the states represented by the travelers on the tour.

The guide was very knowledgeable but it was boring. He tried to make it interesting but history dates and names get boring.

Thanks for your review. All Guides tell their story differently. Could you tell me the date and time you took the tour so that we can address this matter.

I would have liked more detail on Picket's charge. But I should have asked. There was just so much to take in.

Thanks for the 5 star review. There is so much to cover in a very short time. The guide would have been happy to answer any questions you may have had. Glad you enjoyed the tour.

The disappointment
Christine_M

The coach bus was not the best way to tour the battlefield. Of course, the rain was a factor. The noisy bus made it difficult to understand the guide, he spoke too fast, had too many irrelevant jokes. His voice was garbled talking thru the mask. Take it off for Pete’s sake! We were disappointed not to actually stop at the place where Lincoln gave his address. It would also have been good to stop at the visitor center to view the mural the tour guide spoke about. Hearing about the parking lot crowded with buses under normal conditions was a waste of time. I was very disappointed in this tour.

Thanks for the rating and feedback. Sorry you were disappointed. All guides tell their story differently. Could you tell me date you took the tour so that we can address the situation. Unfortunately, stopping to see the Cyclorama and location of the Gettysburg Address is not feasible on the tour as there is a lot of territory to cover in a short amount of time.

My husband and I enjoyed our coach tour or Gettysburg Battlefield. The weather was perfect and both the driver and tour guide could not have been nicer and more engaging. We got to walk around the battlefield, and the accommodations on the bus were great! We highly recommend this company and tour!
