Good except if you have a poor internet connection

The tour was informative and well produced. There were several instances where it was confusing which way to proceed and the audio stopped working due to poor internet connection. The audio tour signs posted at roadside were a definite help. We were able to proceed at our own pace which also was a huge plus.

Thanks for the feedback! Usually, the audio appears like it stopped working but it’s due to accidentally getting off-route. The cellular signal strength won’t affect the audio. We’d still like more details about your experience to see what we can learn! Please email us via our website, ActionTourGuide.com. Thank you

Great app!

Loved the information and that it kept up with us automatically as we moved through the tour. Very good detail and really brought the site to life. I would recommend a notification of leaving the route and next turn in whatever distance once you make a turn. We got off track early on and wasted 30 minutes before realizing the silence was too long and figuring how to get back on the right spot.

So glad you enjoyed all of the tours within the Gettysburg bundle! The idea of adding a “you’re off route!” notice is an excellent one — we’ll work on this ASAP! We have more self-guided tours (driving and walking) across the country as well — please feel free to check out ActionTourGuide.com when you plan your future travels. Thanks again!!

First trip ever to...

First trip ever to Gettysburg. This car tour helped us understand the geography, the details, allowing us to get outside and walk around the various stops. Especially great being Covid sensitive. We returned the next day knowing exactly where we wanted to hike around.

Learning about Abraham Brian’s farm was fascinating. It was not on the recording, however! The audio worked well, otherwise.

II would recommend this self-tour to anyone that enjoys American history and the Civil War. I saw the movie Gettysburg before my visit and this visit, seeing the actual battlefields and the stories attached to each battlefield; well, it was just impressive. I enjoyed the stories that followed the tour.

Thanks so much! The Gettysburg Battlefield is so full of stories and we do our best to tell them all. Thrilled that you enjoyed them! If you enjoyed the self-guided experience, please feel free to check out our other tours at ActionTourGuide.com. Thanks again!

Well narrated and well directed for map navigation. Informative and simple to follow. Get close to a WiFi for ease of ap download prior to initiating the tour. At first it may seem the directions are taking you way out of the way but be patient and follow the instructions. Don’t hesitate to pause the narration to walk around and take-in the sites or take a break. It picks right up where you left off and very easy to replay. Make time- the tour is long and detailed sometimes taking short but time consuming detours that nevertheless are well worth it and a terrific value for the price. The detours are voluntary and it will tell you when occurring so you have the chance to postpone and pick up the tour another day or time. I can’t pick a favorite location, it’s all very impressive but forced to say, I’d point to the near initial portion of the tour. All you have to do is observe, better yet, WALK, the location at the rail under the bridge to get a sense of the circumstances under which these soldiers found themselves as vividly described by the ap. You are not sentient if the hair on your back don’t react. I was fortunate to visit during the precise time of year the battle took place (July 4 weekend 2021) and that definitely added a physical dimension to the imagination. All of the grounds are immaculate. All of the participant armies represented with all of their divisions, brigades memorialized, all by their respective States. The scale of this tour is immense, the grounds are hallowed and make for intense meditative spots throughout. Feel free to stop reading here. The balance are more personal thoughts about my visit and not necessarily a review. The history enthusiasts will be thrilled. Pick any subject; military history, military tactics, military weapons, logistics, field medicine, period medical equipment, techniques, medical/surgical tools, artillery tactics, artillery equipment, ballistics, period weapon technology, the politics of the war, the pro and cons, the personal drama, civilian sacrifices, near mythical acts of valor, made-for-epic heroism, inspirational stories of man and mammal. Anyone visiting this place should come out with a minimum sense of the magnitude, the seriousness, the cost and right, wrong or indifferent; the reasons for brother to fight so viciously, so crudely and so violently against brother. Now at the Museum itself, involvement of African American troops is well covered and greatly appreciated. You learn the individual’s name, rank, unit, incredible valor in combat. The tragic conditions before, during and after are enough to make anyone angry that a man be denied a promotion or respect for their valor because of their skin color. This is a good place to feel the burning brand of injustice and appreciate why it’s a big thing that the CSA lost their bid to perpetuate a failed and ignorant cause. In the Service I was told there was only one color; Green. And on any battlefield the only color that equalizes and matters is the one given from your own veins in sacrifice of an higher ideal. I don’t feel it an exaggeration to suggest that every citizen of this country should be made to visit this place, to get a better sense of our times. Is it propagandist? Maybe. History is written by the victors. Yet every American should experience this for themselves and judge the actions taken here with the knowledge of it’s flawed, obscene and immoral reasons, existing on both sides and weigh it's historical value, the heroic, ridiculously suicidal charges and counters and hopefully take from it that we are, by far, a much better Republic. And if we are lucky; perhaps inoculate against the nonsense that continually works to divide us. May the tour leave you a better person, a better citizen, a better American.

What an AMAZING review. It reminded me of how I felt after my first ever Gettysburg visit — though frankly, it’s relevant for every visit. You’ve really captured the emotions and poignancy of the battlefield. I can’t express how proud I am that it was our tour that accompanied you on this trip. Thank you so much.

Spend the money and take a real tour if you’re really interested in learning anything

The driving tour was a nightmare. The navigation was not working with the signs. We tried to manually move from one site to the next but even that didn’t work properly. After two hour of frustration and we called the help number... “Mike’s “ Pakistani accent was so thick that his advice was useless. Mike asked us silly questions such as “did we download the app?” He was about as useless as the app itself.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2021
Thanks for your feedback. The navigation issues you described typically happen when the route isn’t followed in order. This tour works best when staying along the marked Auto Tour going from 1 to 2 etc. We highly recommend starting at the Gettysburg Heritage Center and then following the route to Auto Stop 1. From there, everything is straightforward. The app also has a map feature that shows both the route and the stops to follow along. We are a small family business based near Boston. That means everyone who answers the phone (even if some have an accent) has a lot of experience with the typical issues that arise with the tour. Downloading the wrong app is extremely common... and the second major reason why the navigation appears “off”. Please note that we are also available over chat and email nearly 24/7. We’d be more than happy to share a gift card or refund since you didn’t have a stellar experience. We always want everyone to leave happy. Please email us via the website to begin the process.
