This bike ride was an excellent choice for viewing the battlegrounds. Our guide, Bruce, was very knowledgeable about not just the battlefields and the battles, but the entire area. My husband is a major history lover, but I am not so much, yet Bruce made the battles come alive for me as well! It was very professional, safe, with excellent... More

Made reservation on monday oct 10, 2016 for family tour on sat Oct 15. We had 2 adults and one 8 yr old boy. Kelly was very helpful and recommended that we arrive an hour early for our son to get acquainted with new bike. You must be able to ride with hand brakes and gears for this trip. We... More

Like other reviewers, we enjoyed the graciousness and professionalism of the people that are part of GettysBike Tours. We used their website to make reservations the night before our tour and we received a helpful phone call the next morning confirming our reservation and giving us some additional information. They were organized - when we arrived, they had the bikes... More

I cannot express high enough praises for GettysBike Tours! Bob went above and beyond to enable my friend and I to have a wonderful experience touring the battlefield. We toured on our own, but Bob stayed open later than he planned to on a slow, rainy day, just so the two of us could rent bikes. The bicycles were in... More

My wife, daughter, and I had booked a bike tour, but we got rained out and had to covert it to a car tour. Our guide, Bob, did such a wonderful job that we extended the tour by another hour. The time flew by. He was able to answer all of our questions, was full of facts, and had an... More

We decided to rent bikes for 2 hours to ride around the main points of the battlefield. We did not join a bike tour, just peddled around with the use of the map we were provided at the bike stand. They gave us some great tips and we made really great use of the bikes. It made it so much... More

My husband and I did this trip on a very hot day but so enjoyed it. A must if you really want to see and understand where the battles took place over the three days. Guide was very good. There are quite a few hills so we were glad we had our own bikes. Highly recommend.

It was three plus hours and very little stopping, but we covered an amazing amount of ground & learned so much from our guide Bob (& owner) . He met us after a full day of teaching high school history & was ready to give us an animated & energetic tour of all the battlefields on a April afternoon that... More

Most people tour the Gettysburg Battlefield by bus or car, both of which are fine, but to really get a closeup look and feel for the park, there is nothing like this bike tour. Our specially certified tour guide (Bruce) was knowledgeable, interesting and personable and seeing most of the important areas of the park was doable on the 4-hour... More
