it was all I hoped for and more, but we needed one more day. I did not get to see everything I wanted to and will go back and do the rest. Gettysburg is a wonderful small town and I loved the Hotel we stayed in.


Great program, exceedingly knowledgeable presenters especially our guide. I heartily recommend the program.


I found the trip to Gettysburg to be within my price range and an educational experience. I had not been there since 8th grade, and it made a whole lot more sense than it did when I was a teenager.I had no concept of the struggles this country has faced with respect to slavery, freedom, and citizenship. Now I do.


The combination of lectures, field trips, setting, subject matter historical importance, and top-notch leadership make this program a winner.


The Gettysburg program was very informative. Even though I live but 30 miles away, and have had numerous opportunities to visit Gettysburg, ...I knew that Road Scholar would "do it right". I was so excited to hear the whole Gettysburg Battle Story, complete with insights and tidbits to make it personal. They did a great job, really!!


Website easy to access.


Whether or not you're a Civil War scholar, you will realize the benefit of this program. It is well-presented by highly knowledgeable instructors and backed up by visiting the actual battle sites.


The Gettysburg program went beyond our expectations. We highly recommend this adventure and learning experience. Every aspect of the program was excellent especially the breath and depth of the information presented and the quality of the presenters. Looking forward to future Road Scholar programs. Mary & Al


The Gettysburg program exceeded my expectations. It was particularly well structured with each day mirroring the days of the battle by starting with a lecture followed by a field trip for the day given by very knowledgeable and capable instructors. Side trips to the visitors center, Soldiers National Cemetery, and the Shriver House fit in well and contributed to the overall enjoyment of the experience.


The Gettysburg program was a very nice program and well done. Very enjoyable.


If you are interested in expanding your knowledge about the civil war and Gettysburg in particular and how this relates to the rest of United States history this is a tour you should take. Instructors were exceedingly knowledgeable and communicated in a down to earth fashion.


This program was my first Road Scholar trip. It turned out to be a wonderful, well-organized, and educational experience beyond my expectations! Before this trip, I had little perception or knowledge about the importance and logistics of the Battle of Gettysburg. I had also felt under-educated about the Civil War, in general. I am happy to say this has changed completely because of this program, and would highly recommend it to anyone!


I have read a lot about the Battle of Gettysburg and standing on the spots where Civil War history was made...what an experience!


I wanted an immersion tour of Gettysburg and this program delivered -- the program was full of history, but also included a sense of impact on the people of Gettysburg. Seeing the battlefield and hearing the program instructor brought history alive. EXCELLENT program!
