GETTYSBURG, a town steeped in History, and the best way to experience this historic town is by taking a walking tour with a Gettysburg Licensed Town Historian/Guide. We operate out of the Gettysburg Lincoln Railroad Station at 35 Carlisle Street, which is owned by the Gettysburg Foundation.

Our friendly, professional Guides are waiting to take you on our “Town Tour” and share the civilians’ experiences of the 3 day battle, occupation, aftermath and Lincoln’s visit. We also offer many Specialty Walking Tours which are described on our “Walking Tour Page”. All of our tours are uniquely designed by each Historian and are not canned tours. We use historic photographs and actual civilian accounts to relate the events that occurred in the town.
