“Great Tour, Full of History”
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.

“Fantastic Tour - Really Nice People”
Reviewed August 16, 2010

This was such a lovely experience our first evening in Gettysburg. I had run across the website for Historic Church Tours and thought it sounded interesting. The walking tours are in the evening (only on Wednesdays) and are about a half mile in distance. Each of their two tours covers 4 different churches that were significant in some way during or after the Civil War. Volunteers from each of the churches act as guides and the presentation at each church is slightly different (each lasting about 15 minutes). We learned such interesting things and really enjoyed talking to all the guides. I highly recommend this tour for people of all ages. We had two 20-somethings and a 12-year-old with us, and they all enjoyed it. At only $5 each this was definitely a bargain.
