The app was an excellent...

The app was an excellent guide and it was easy to follow. At each point it was very informative. I would highly recommend the app as it is a fantastic value at $9.99.

Standing on this hallowed ground and trying to imagine what these combatants were experiencing. Knowing you were standing in the footsteps of these Americans all.

Waste of time.

Being totally frustrated and driving in circles. Wasn't clear on starting point, so would have to click on directions, which takes you out of the app and into Google maps. This happened all day. Wasted so much time trying to figure it out and we are not stupid people. Definitely taking bus tour next time. Also found out the visitors center has free auto tour app. Maybe that would have been better.

Apt difficult to download, finally got it working but narative did not match with location. Very frustrating! Should be more user friendly.

Great afternoon with the kids, we watched the Gettysburg movie the night before so the tour dovetailed with the movie. We even captured camera shots of eagles near Little Roundtop
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Those photos must be amazing! I’ve never seen an eagle there, I’m jealous. Thanks for the great review — I’m thrilled you and the kids enjoyed the tour. I have a number of other self-guided tours across the country you might enjoy on your next vacation!

Following the story of the three day battle and seeing the assaults from different vantage points made the events feel even more heart-breaking and just how close the odds were for losing the country.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
You’re absolutely right — it’s so important to remember the stories of those who fought on this hallowed battlefield, and we’re honored to share that story with others. If you’re interested in exploring other battlefields (or lots of other places across the country), please check out the other self-guided tours I offer

Had some difficulty setting up the program on our iPhone. Maybe your tech crew can come up with something easier for seniors. None the less, once we figured everything out we got started and enjoyed the trip. It was nice to do it at a very leisurely pace.

We had the best time and learned so much from the Audio Tour! The Tour was very informative and gave us some great details along the way. We were very impressed with how organized everything was.

Good info during tour. Self paced. Speed up if you want to. Spooky as hell at night. We did it at night and day. Would recommend. Also did haunted driving tour. That one was also ok, but had too much story telling.

That’s so awesome to hear — and I’m thrilled that you guys got spooked at night too, that’s fun! Hope you get the chance to try out my other tours on your future travels!
