Gettysburg: 2-Hour Licensed Battlefield Guided Carriage Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 2 hours
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.
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!
Great tour for those who are interested in the history of the city. Our tour guide Josh was very knowledgeable and we were able to learn about important dates in history as well as stand close to where they took place. Definitely recommend.
Loved horseback riding through the battlegrounds... the hide guide was super knowledgeable and did a great job while on horseback. I can't wait to do it again.
Bill was a great guide. Full of interesting tidbits about Philadelphia's history that we never would've read about in the history books.
