Even though it was before the official season, a guide met us and gave us an excellent tour of historic Gettysburg--despite the rain. We learned a great deal in the 90+ minute tour about the impact of the battle of those living in Gettysburg.

Our guide was so good. There a lots of guides so it pays to ask the locals for a good one.

We did two ghost tours in one evening. Both guides were very knowledgable of the town, the battles and the Ghosts. I would go on another tour with Ken or Harry every time we could make it there

I was a little skeptical about this outfit as there was only one review posted on TripAdvisor. I needn't have worried. The park focuses on the battle. This walk (the day walk) focuses on the town itself, important figures, history (and includes battle info from the town's POV). The guide was stumped by a few easy questions but overall did a nice job. This is a great first-day activity to get a lay of the land in Gettysburg. Tip: the downtown parking meters only go for 2 hours at a time. I put in money right before the walk but the tour went over and by the time I got back to my car I had a ticket. Do yourself a favor and use the parking garage which is right behind the Gettysburg hotel on the town square (round-about). That's the same building in which the tour begins.

This was an amazing tour. Our guide Joanne Lewis knows all the facts and information necessary to make your trip memorable! Positively a must for the avid civil war buff, or the novice. Joanne has third u's because she is the best tour guide we have ever had, and now we will compare other tour guides to her, they won't compare.
