    Wish we had more time to walk the hollowed grounds, but with a bus load of people, thats hard to do. I didnt realize that the battlefield was so big. Good history lesson to learn about the cost of war, and how it affects all of us. May God bless and have mercy on America.

    A brilliant day. Well worth the time and money. Our driver DAVID aka bear was great and the guide was so knowledgeable. A thought provoking trip into the past. Would of liked some free time to explore town on our own but we've come away from that day with so many photos and memories. Thank you aviator for making it happen.

    A great way to see Gettysburg for the first time! Our driver was knowledgeable, courteous, very organized and communicated very clearly. The tour is packed with information and a close-up look at this historical venue. The Gettysburg guide who joined our bus as we toured the battlefields was a true expert and provided so much interesting information! The bus was comfortable and I was happy that I could leave the driving to someone else!

    Easily the best battlefield visit I have done. Quite a compact area, so much remaining, the country substantially unchanged - .and we had a quite exceptional guide.
