About Fredericksburg Tours
We provide a Civil War driving tour & various private battlefield tours. Our specialty is the Civil War area battlefields. VIP tours without the VIP tour price. We take all of the hassle out of self-guided tours. Let us do all of the work so you can relax! We created our tours to tell the whole story from start to finish, rather than a sample tour, leaving you with a better understanding and wanting to discover more. We're the best way to discover four major Civil War battlefields, within 20 square miles, that saw 100.000 casualties; the battle of Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, the Wilderness, & Spotsylvania Court House.

Spent the the whole day with John Kanaster touring the Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville battlefields. Well worth every cent. Do yourself a favor, when you want to check out these battlefields, book with John. He gives you the full picture of the battles.
