Reasonable prices for an walking tour of the town of Gettysburg. Not too strenuous-though suggest you wear a hat. You get individual ear cuff headsets so you can always hear the guide. This tour gives you a view of the war from the people who lived there as the troops moved through their streets and entered their homes.

Fun tours at the Farnsworth House - especially the cellar - and with the Mason Dixon Paranormal Society...Gettysburg at night is a hoot!

Again, every American should experience Gettysburg. The walking tour is well done, so informative if a bit long. Perhaps not for ADHD folks, the taped auto tour would be better.

We did the 3pm guided tour with Kevin. We were lucky to be the only ones on the tour so were much more involved. It really complemented the knowledge we had gained driving round the whole park. Very interesting to learn how individual citizens of the town had been affected in the battle. And the importance of Gettysburg to other... More

We went on several of the free guided walking tours the park service makes available to the visiting public. These are absolutely worth your time! Our historian guides were amazing, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, interesting ... I was so impressed and pleased that these were available for one and all! I wish we could have experienced all of the talks.

I just love the downtown area of Gettysburg. It too has a plenty of history and this is the perfect way to learn about it. Also, we had a great tour guide. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and made the tour fun. Try the 10am tour, we were the only ones there making it quite nice.

Our National park tour guide made history come alive. I recall studying about Gettysburg but never understood how crucial it was to outcome of the war. Our tour guide offered not only a knowledgeable account of the battle, but details about the generals and other important figures who were involved. It was great too not to have to drive to... More
