A historic tour of a historic event

Climbing the lookout tower and scanning the topography to put the battle in perspective. What horror to imagine Longstreet and his troops charging the Union lines repeatedly only to be repelled in what's been labelled "Picket's Charge."

It was difficult to follow the route at the beginning but then it was fun. We did not finish the tour because it was too long

Not for us.

We couldn’t use the tour, it was too difficult to follow. The Gettysburg battlefield is spread out over the town and countryside of Gettysburg. Too much traffic and too many cars parked on the roadsides. We wound up taking the bus tour from the visitor center.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Thanks for your feedback. We’d love to hear more from you about where the traffic/cars became a problem. Self-guided drives are one of the most popular ways to tour Gettysburg so I’d like to understand if this was an issue because it was a popular weekend or something else (construction?).

I love gps audio tours. I've done a bunch all over. But this was the worst one I've ever done. Very glitchy and very hard to follow. The developers need to make improvements for this to be a worthwhile tour. And again, this is coming from someone who has done MANY of these gps audio tours and generally loves them.

Unification memorial was the highlight and the idiot running in the field with the confederate flag. I think he was just looking for attention
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
The Eternal Light memorial is definitely a striking monument, artfully constructed with materials from both the North and South. I’m so glad you enjoyed the tour despite the drama! When you’re planning your future travels, please check out the other tours we offer at ActionTourGuide.com!

Loved driving past the old houses that still had cannon ball holes in the side!!! Surreal to see that!

High level overview of Gettysburg battlefield

Great guide.. although if you are interested in understanding in detail the battle chronologically, I would recommend a license battlefield tour guide.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Thanks! The app follows the chronological Auto Tour route through the battlefield. The Learn More audios are a great way to dive deeper into any stop that you’d like to understand more. We highly recommend taking the tour in order to avoid chronology confusion.

It was great to get around the battle field. I would suggest more detail on the battles and less on the politics. Tens of thousands of young men gave all for their cause. Disease, bullets hunger etc etc didn’t stop them from fighting to the death for what they believed in. Shine the light on those kids, hero’s on both sides.
