It was a great experience to be able to see all of the monuments and here all of the history. The only issue I have is the end of the tour it tried to make us go down the wrong way on a one way street.

I was very upset that the tour had a detour and we couldn't get up to Little Round Top. We got very confused.

The tour has been updated with the detour since the first day of road closures but some people may have downloaded before the update. I’m so sorry about the confusion if that’s what happened! Please reach out for an exchange!

Great experience learned a lot
Michele_L

Experience was great, being able to listen to the recording right on cur to where we drove helped. a lot. The only down fall, not from this website, was a huge portion of the raid we missed because it was closed. I think road repair. it sure could not see.. We had to find our own detour and work around to get back in the path.

Thanks Michele! I'm glad so my tour of Gettysburg Battlefield made your visit into a great one. That construction detour is now updated on the tour as well! Hope you get the chance to try out some of my other tours in the future!

We were able to visit the various points on the battlefield at our own pace. If we got off track it was a little challenging to get back on the tour.

Hi Judy, I’d love to know where you guys went off-route so I can make sure the tour can accommodate that detour in the future!

Our trip was memorable, using this tour/app will have us recalling many years from now, "Remember how unfriendly and frustrating this app was?"
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
The great thing about our tour is that you don’t actually have to interact with the app much to enjoy the tour — all audios trigger automatically and begin playing without having to touch! It’s easy to simply follow the route and listen. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to call!

Donald_D

Extremely detailed tour. Very well done and narrated. My kids commented that it made them feel like they were actually part of the battle. It was a little long but only because we wanted to see everything. It took about 3-1/2 hours.

That’s awesome — I aim for that every time! I hope you and your kids also check out my other tours on your future travels.

Great Overview of the Battles of Gettysburg
Kelly_C

The app worked great and was very informative.once We started our day at the National Military Park Visitors Center and checked out the film and museum and then used the app to tour the area. It was nice to be able to stop and go as we pleased and we even broke in the middle of the tour for lunch. Was just what we were looking for.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Thanks Kelly! I'm glad you could go from the National Park’s Visitor Center to the Gettysburg Heritage Center (where this tour begins) without any trouble. And I’m thrilled you enjoyed the flexibility and convenience of my self-guided tour so much!
