A nice local experience, we visited four churches. The stories become repetitive in that all of the the churches were used as hospitals during the battle. The reenactments were fine, though more history of the buildings and congregations would have been appreciated.

We wanted to find a church near the Gettysburg Hotel since we were there on Sunday morning. I found this one just a couple blocks away. Known as "Church of the Presidents" since Ike and Nixon were both members and Lincoln actually visited there once....More

This is a WONDERFUL tour that I would highly recommend. We did the west side churches this year and can't wait to do the east side next summer. VERY informative and educationally...all the participants at each church were wonderful!

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.

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....More

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.

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.

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...More

You show up at the starting point and park at the church and pay for your there. There's no signing up. Just show up.
