We started out our two day visit to Gettysburg with a two hour guided tour. Fred did a great job of giving us a general overview of the three day battle and taking us to the most important sites. We found it very interesting and worth the money.

These guys are amazing. There seems to be nothing they can't answer about the battle. They have a knack of bringing the battle field to life. Simply listening to tape or reading a book/pamphlet can't compare. They add personal touches and help tie the events together so you can really appreciate what happened here.

I've taken a guide more than once. I would do it again any time before jumping on the bus with the public for the bus tour. With the individual guide you ask what you want and he shows you exactly what you want. I think it is $50. for two hours if I remember correctly and is well worth it,

These thoroughly vetted guidesknow so much more than any tourist, including me and my historian companion. They showed me hidden sights, like bullet pocked houses in town and knew great stories of the aftermath of the battle. Highly recommended!

A tour of the Gettysburg Battlefield has been a lifelong dream, and my wife and I as well as friends of ours traveled there in September 2014. The weather was perfect and the crowds very manageable that time of year. I had contacted the Assoc. of Licensed Battlefield Guides several months prior to our trip and received a phone call...

I have visited Gettysburg many times and have a pretty good understanding of how the battle came to happen and what transpired on three July days in 1863. However, for the most complete experience possible, I take advantage of the opportunity to tour the battlefield with a Gettysburg Licensed Battlefield Guide. I have twice scheduled 3 hour tours about a... More

We just completed a 3 hour tour with our guide Fred Wieners. It was an excellent experience for our group of 8. Even those of us that were not so interested in history really enjoyed the tour. We highly recommend you contact Fred.

We took a 90 minute walking tour with a licensed town historian located on York St., Gettysburg Battlefield Preservation Association. He showed us around downtown buildings and landmarks . He pointed out some details that you would never see on your own. His love of Gettysburg history and people shows in his presentation. We will follow his suggestions in the... More

I have reached the point where I pick one small area of the battlefield and go there with a guide just to understand the activities that shaped the battle. I have never been disappointed with the guide's knowledge. Only when the tour is over I am sorry I did not start doing this years before. Larry, Phil, Steve, Joel, Jim,... More

My husband and I had Mike as our guide... I was in awe of this man's knowledge and his delivery of the information. We enjoyed the 2 hours immensely and hope others realize that these guides are ready to give you and your family an awesome tour of the battlefield. I am so happy that I decided to go with... More
