Diamond in the rough
The commentary is the shining star of this app. Well-explained story and pleasant voice. The app basically takes you through each of the three days of the battle but in a fun & enjoyable way, not just dumping facts. You hear the stories as you drive. The route has some confusing overlaps but as long as you listen to the directions, you’ll be fine. There are times you are asked to pull over and pause — but you will probably be doing a lot of that on your own anyway, like we did. Overall, can recommend.
Added incredible context to what would have otherwise have been a simple drive through the fields. Listening to the descriptions, I felt like I could see the battles in front of me! It gave me chills to know that I was driving along the same path that the soldiers had taken.
Worth every penny!!!
Succinct but comprehensive stories of the battlefield, the generals, and the armies movements. Worked very well during the entire drive, no GPS issues or audio mishaps. Images and videos were a big help.
Worked great, very informative, well worth the few dollars.
Great driving tour of Gettysburg. Everything ran smoothly. Content was excellent - very informative and entertaining. I liked that I could dive deeper for more information while my wife was perfectly happy with the high level information. Highly recommend for all levels of interest.
This app was a perfect way to tour Gettysburg during COVID-19. Although the museum and visitor center were closed, we were still able to learn all about the parks history through this audio tour. We drove along following the map guide on the app and listened as the narrator told us about the various stops. WELL WORTH THE PURCHASE OF THE FULL TOUR. Thank you!
