It was a cool Autumn day to drive the route. The directions were easy to follow. We were able to travel at our own speed; taking our time to absorb the information at each stop. We were able to stop at the Visitor Center for an extended period of time and were able to return to audio tour without difficulty.

Very informative. A couple times the directions to turn would happen to early and we would have to turn around but otherwise fine. We enjoyed it tremendously, even my 6 year old was interested

My family & I had such a fantastic time in Gettysburg and this tour app really helped us learn about the battle and more! The narrator was great. I would highly recommend it!!

Following the battle in the tour in a self-paced download made understanding and appreciating those three fateful days so much better.

Wonderful ! You can take your time at your own pace while touring. Also, you can pull over at anytime and look around .
