Went in car your with Anthony D. The guide drives your car as long as it is not a rental. He was great. Very knowledgable and helpful. Loved what he was doing. Well worth the fee ($75). Book in advance when it gets busy.

Best to call a few days in advance to reserve a guide, if not you will need to get to Gettysburg visitors center when they first open & hope for availability.
