Some more feedback from our customers....
I’ll tell you this – if I had backed out of
the Segway part of the visit I would have missed a great
experience! How many different ways can you say cool? The
Segway is a fabulous machine. After about 12 – 15 minutes
of simple training from Sherry at the SegTours of Gettysburg
headquarters we were ready to go. Ed Guy arrived to be our
licensed battlefield guide and he and Sherry led us east
along the streets of town toward Culp’s Hill.
Thanks for the great tour on the Segways this past Tues.
We had a terrific time! Although I was a little hesitant,
I had fun and it was quite a learning experience! We appreciated
the little extras that you provided for the group. The only
problem--Earl got way too many "rear-view" pics
of me during the tour! Thanks again and have a good fall

We took your battlefield tour without having been to
the Visitor Center first; we were glad we had. The movie,
cyclorama and museum were all more meaningful given our
fresh experience of the related topography. We particularly
appreciated your choice of Dave Eisenhart as our guide.
He's a certainly gifted educator. We were delighted when
he was able to rejoin us for a tour of the eastern battlefield
the following day.
I can't think of a better way to travel up, down, and
around the battlefield than on a Segway. They're pure fun;
I didn't want to give mine back! It has all the advantages
of being on horseback, with none of the liabilities. I have
arthritis in both feet (after fracturing my heels), but
experienced no aches or pains during or after the tour.
You've done a great job organizing everything, right down
to the bottled water and cookies.
- Susan from Maryland
We have done a bus tour, a car tour, and a horse
tour of Gettsyburg over the years--but nothing was as fun
as our guided segway tour. Cruising the battlefields with
a sweet breeze on your face on the whisper-quiet segways
made for a great memory for our family.
- Rob from Maryland
We both just wanted to say "thank you" again
for the wonderful tour of Gettysburg and the battlefield
and the marvelous experience with a Segway! You are terrific
teachers -- very encouraging and affirming! We were the
focus of the conversation at the birthday party later that
afternoon since everyone wanted to know more about what
we had done and seen! So, again from two Segway novices
(one of whom has a sunburned face!), Thank you soooo much!

Sister Mary Leonard (82 yrs) from Washington D.C.
I was impressed with everything about the tour. I'm
a history teacher, and I felt that the audio tour was detailed
and presented good information throughout. Amy and I were
both struck by the fact that we covered a ton of ground,
but never felt rushed. It really was the ideal way to see
the battlefield. Honestly, I could have spent another 2-3
hours roaming the field that way. Everything was top notch
and exceeded our expectations. Next time we're in Gettysburg
we'd love to do the Eastern half of the battlefield as well.
- Pete from Connecticut
Our Segway Gettysburg tour was great fun! What a wonderful
day it was. The audio tour was very professional and we
sure learned a lot. It was an easy day trip from D.C. and
we're going to suggest SegTours.com to all our friends!
- Russ and Becky from
You guys rock! I can't even put in words what a great
time we had on the Segway tour. We spent four days in Gettysburg
and your tour is the only thing we talked about all the
way home! It was a hoot and we can't wait to come back in
the fall and do the Eastern battlefield!
- Carol from Pennsylvania
We had a great time touring the Gettysburg battlefield
on Segways; I think it is the ideal way to experience this
kind of scene. No sore feet and a lot of territory covered
in a reasonable length of time. The guide, Gary, was clearly
the high point of the whole day. He is a walking (or riding)
encyclopaedia of Civil War information. We felt like we
were really at the scene of action during his narrative.
- Charlotte and Mike
Just wanted to thank you so much for a fantastic tour
experience - we loved it!
- John from Pennsylvania
has been three months since our segway tour of Gettysburg,
and we still can't stop talking about it! The scenery, the
information, the history! We learned, we laughed and we
were informed and entertained. Absolutely do not miss the
opportunity to take this voyage. I endorse it!
- Marc Summers
As far as Ruth & I are concerned, your tour is the
best way to see the battlefield. There is no comparison
to being out in the open and being able to look around as
you are moving, to being in a car or bus looking out a window
if you are a passenger. The driver of course must watch
where he or she is going. As you said, it makes you almost
feel like you are one of the troops involved in the battle.
Thank you again for the wonderful time.
- Tom from Saint Kitts
and Nevis (Caribbean)
As you know my father is 71 years old and a history
buff. It has been three weeks and he's still thanking me
for the best birthday present that he has had in years!
- Angela from Virginia
I just wanted to say thank you from all of us here at
the office for a great time on the Segways last Friday.
The staff is still talking about what a wonderful time they
had. We cannot believe how much ground we covered over the
battlefields in three hours. Thanks again.
- Joetta from Pennsylvania
We sure had a lot of fun touring Gettysburg on a Segway.
Gettysburg tours come in lots of shapes and sizes but we've
learned that a Segway is THE ONLY way to go! In three hours,
we saw a huge amount of the battlefield (including parts
that I'd never seen in many previous visits) and had great
fun doing it. The audio tour was very well done and the
company escort took very good care of us.
- Lou from New Jersey
I'm a student of the Gettysburg battlefield and have
been there at least a dozen times. I stumbled across your
Segway tours on the internet and was gobsmacked. What a
great idea!! The Segway is the perfect way to get around
and gives you a view of the battlefield that can't be compared
to a car or bus. The only time I've had a better tour of
the battlefield was when I was young enough to walk it...and
that took four days!
- George from Connecticut
We had such a wonderful tour of the Eastern battlefield.
At the age of 67 both of us were a bit apprehensive about
riding the Segway. We needn't have worried, once we had
the lesson it was just plain fun. Ed was an excellent guide
and you paired us with him knowing our particular interest
in the Culp's Hill, Spangler's Spring area. The ice cold
water and cherries you provided were so welcome, and your
rear guard position made us feel very safe. Thank you both!
- Bob and Donna from
Myself and everyone in my group had a fantasic time
that afternoon. I am certain that we will do that with other
family members. Thanks again for a great afternoon.
- Bryan from Pennsylvania
This was my third Segway tour (the first two were in
Washington D.C. and Baltimore) and yours was SO much better
than the others that there's no comparison. Having a real
historian (not a college kid) as a guide makes a huge difference.
We learned so much and had a lot of fun doing it! You folks
really know how to put on a professional tour.
- Norman from Washington
Larry and I had a great time on your tour – informative
and fun. We hope to get back to Gettysburg soon to take
the tour of the Eastern battlefield.
- Joy from Virginia
I confess that I paused when I saw the price of the
Segway tour but my wife reminded me that it was for two
and a half hours -- a real bargain compared to other activities
in town. Now that I have taken the tour, I don't know what
I was thinking! I'd do it again in a heartbeat! In fact,
maybe I will. The guide was such a wealth of knowledge,
I could listen to him all day long.
- Jim from Pennsylvania
All sorts of wonderful stuff came out of your magical
saddle bags. The cold bottled water and fruit were not just
nice touches -- they were signs that you were really focused
on our comfort. And when it started to sprinkle near the
end of our tour, you were Johnny-on-the-spot with rain ponchos.
A lesser company would have nickle-and-dimed us for those
extras. Kudos to a really superb operation! We will certainly
tell our friends.
- Jess and Mary
As hard as we tried, we couldn't stump our guide [Gary
Kross]. He really knows his stuff!
- Henry and Lynn
Our family has visited Gettysburg on numerous occasions
and took part in many different battlefield tours. The tour
of the battlefield on the Segways was by far and away the
best tour we have ever done. It was enjoyable, fun and very
informative with your own guide. The cost was well worth
the benefit. It is something that we look forward to doing
again on our next trip.
