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

We arranged to hire a Licensed Battlefield Guide at the Visitor's Center and for the next three hours we were introduced to the Battle of Gettysburg in great detail. Glad we opted for a 3 hour tour because it was barely enough to scratch the surface of what happened during those terrible three days in July 1863. Our guide, Rich,... More

Our guide toured the battlefields (in our vehicle). We didn't stop to see all of the historical markers and such (you can go back for that) but he knew a lot of tidbits. When we went back on our own, I heard other guides, they all seem to have unique prospectives.

I opted for a 4-hour tour instead of the standard 2-hour tour. My guide, Jeff Wolf, was excellent. He provided an excellent overview of the battle and the various parts of the battlefield. Because we had 4 hours, he was able to show me a few very interesting things that many visitors do not get to. He was able to... More

This was, by far, the best choice my wife and I made at Gettysburg! We hired John Krepps to be our guide for a 3 hour tour. As we approached out time limit, we wanted more. We ended up spending 4 ½ hours with John! He was so good at making the battle come alive - keeping it sequential, detailed,... More
