Smooth ride both ways with friendly & knowledgeable driver who did not talk over much. Very impressed with first stop docents (home of Gettysburg civilian caught in battle) Bought a book in their gift shop. Liked the authentic attire. Day was chilly and rainy which reduced the number of other visitors. Our professional guide was solid as were folks at the diorama. Found the number of site visits just right. My first ever Gray Line tour, likely not the last.
