I decided on this approach since I was in the area on a weekend "getawy" with the wife and without the kids. I knew this tour would have a "fun" factor for her and it would give me a unique view/perspective of the main battlefield. The tour guide was one of the licensed battlefield tour guides unique to Gettysburg and you heard him through a nice wireless set up where you wore a receiver and headphones.

    There were about 20 of us on the tour (including the guide and the wranglers) and the tour was very pleasant and gave a very general overview of the battle. The thing I found interesting was once on the battlefield and on horseback -- you got a soldier's eye view of the battlefield and I felt a greater degree of immersion. Although the tour itself didn't go into great detail -- the guide was very knowledgable and answered any and all specific questions anyone had.

    Go try it out if you are in the area.
