“candlelight church concert at Christ Church - great experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

So glad that this candlelight church concert fit into our schedule. It lasted almost exactly 1 hour.
The program was very informative and the singing enjoyable.
They even had refreshments outside afterwards.
It reminded me of the Bruton Parish Church concerts in Williamsburg, Virginia.

“A Must experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

We go to the church tour every year. Excellent way to get historical information on the town and the way each church was used as a hospital. Informative, interesting sight-seeing walk. Even if you are not a regular church-goer, tour is historic and very interesting. Not something you will experience if you only visit the battlefield Visitor's Center.

“Downtown churchs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Interesting alternative to the mass of ghost tours. Presentations are made by members of each church so the quality can vary wildly, but all were of historical relavance and very much more substance than the ghost tours.

“The passion of the volunteers providing the tour was amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed all of the tours we have taken in Gettysburg. The historic church tour was however by far the most enjoyable! The volunteers providing the tour were very knowledgeable & passionate about the local history.

“Great Tour, Full of History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

An inexpensive tour, only offered on Wednesday evenings. It is done by volunteers. Our leader was also a Licensed Battlefield Guide, so he was quite knowledgeable. You walk to four churches and at each church parishoners take over and tell you the history of their church's involvement in and after the battle of Gettysburg. It was very well done and informative. Plus, you get to see the inside of some historic sanctuaries.
