Gettysburg Licensed Town Historians aka Gettysburg Licensed Town Guides specialize in providing 90-minute walking tours of Gettysburg to groups of any size, age and fitness level.

Parties of 12 or more are encouraged to book a group tour. Our Town Historians can customize a tour for your group or you can select one from our website. We also offer various programs which can be customized for your group.  

We offer special walking tours for school groups, which offer a special blend of education, history and entertainment regarding the civilian's experience during the 3-day battle. These tours can be 45-min. or 90-min. in length and are easy walking. We also have a scavenger hunt called "I Spy Gettysburg" for children 9 years and under. We offer programs designed for school children.

Using historic sites, period photography, and first-hand accounts we bring the town and residents to life! Experience Lincoln's 25-hours in Gettysburg with a Lincoln Tour or venture to Gettysburg's seldom seen places and hear stories (some are strange,some mysterious and some just plain silly) from Gettysburg's past. Or take a Mytery and Untold Tales Tour. Gettysburg is located only 8 miles from the Mason Dixon Line, which to a Black person living in 1863 Gettysburg that was only 8 miles from slavery! Take a Black History walking tour and hear their stories. 

For Boy Scout groups we offer The Historic Gettysburg Trail, a 3-mile walking tour of the town of Gettysburg which takes 2 to 3 hours to complete. This is part of The Gettysburg Heritage Trail Program.  Or if you are just interested in knowing more about the town and civilians, please join us for one of our 90-minute walking tours.

Girl Scouts can walk with an historian and learn what it was like to be a girl living in 1863 Gettysburg before, during and after the battle, as women and girls played a huge part in caring for the wounded soldiers, union and confederate.
