Gettysburg: 2-Hour Licensed Battlefield Guided Carriage Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 2 hours
per group up to 6
Arrived at meet up location to find horses saddled up and ready to be distributed to riders. Sign in was efficient and informative. Be prepared with riders liability waivers filled out and signed in your email communication with vendor (Inadvertently, I completely missed this step through email communication, but was able to complete the on-line forms and submit on the spot). You are in charge of properly sizing the provided helmet, so make adequate time for this step. Bring along a water bottle (2-hour ride without stops); your horse is outfitted with a bottle holder. Also, since there are no potty-stops on this excursion, think about taking care of those needs ahead of time at the Campground port-a-potty. Members of my group had never before been on a horse. The instructions and supervision given by the staff were very good for these first-time riders (ages 8 and 10). The day was perfect for a trail ride. The guide was amazing in his monologue of battlefield events.
Our guide, Clinton, was personable and Knowledgeable. He shared many interesting facts about the war that really helps us connect with the history of the town and the men who lost their lives. Clinton’s recount of the paranormal sightings throughout town was engaging and interesting. He answered questions and helped us appreciate the sacred ground we were standing on. I took photos as suggested and I captured an orb and what appears to be cannon fire in a photograph taken on Cemetery Hill. I didnt see it with my eyes but the photo doesn’t lie. Thank you for this amazing experience!
Our Guide Jim was amazing: so much knowledge and so may facts to share- Diorama n Cyclorama were cool but the carriage tour gets you down on the ground and you really acknowledged the immensity of the battle field and topography - as animal lovers we all appreciated how well the horses are kept- too
Kevin Bryant was the best and most knowledgeable guide I've ever met. He was engaging and brought the battle to life for us. My daughter was mesmerized! I would highly recommend this tour. It's cost effective, enjoyable, and educational - all wrapped up in one!
Clinton was awesome! Full of information and stories about Gettysburg! He kept all of us entertained and interacted well to create a friendly and ghostly experience!!!
