What people are saying about Gettysburg

Easy beautiful 2 hr ride that brings you to many off the beaten paths around the battlefield. Pleasantly surprised at the microphone set- up- each rider had a receiver and headphones so you could hear everything the guide said clearly. I had received no information about when to arrive and it was obvious that 15 min wasn't enough. Also not included was that we could have brought water bottles as there is a pouch off the saddle to hold them and your camera/ phone if desired. Be prepared as 2 hrs in the saddle when you're not used to it is a bit uncomfortable but well worth the trip!

Great experience!! The horse ride was a great way to explore the battlefield. The horses were well trained and followed each other so there’s no need to be an expert rider. The narrator was excellent with lots of details of the events that took place.
