Recorded or Live Guides

By law, every tour on the Gettysburg National Military Park requires a Licensed Battlefield Guide (LBG). The LBGs are licensed and provided by the Park Service.

In the case of our Western tour (only), you may opt to hear an Escorted Audio tour by a LBG instead.

Escorted Audio Tour

The Escorted Audio tour of the Western battlefield is escorted by a staff member and utilizes a recorded audio system. The recorded narrative provides a very good overview of the battle of Gettysburg and park monuments and is both educational and entertaining.

The Western Escorted Audio tour was designed and narrated by Gary Kross who has more than 30 years experience as a Licensed Battlefield Guide. The staff escort operates the audio transmitter and you are issued an earpiece and wireless receiver with which you will listen to the tour.

Note that the staff escort is not a licensed guide and is not permitted by the National Park Service to answer questions about the battle on park property. For that reason, there is a distinct advantage for some visitors to be able to ask questions of a live guide.

We recommend the Escorted Audio tour for those who are budget-minded or have a typical tourist's level of knowledge or interest in the battle.

Live Licensed Battlefield Guide

A live guide is required for Eastern, Town, and Specialty tours and optional for the Western tour. The fee for the live guide is $15.00 per person but a minimum total guide fee (i.e, combined from all participants) of $60 applies.

That is, the live guide fee is at least $15 per person but if there are fewer that 4 people on your tour, including those who may not be in your party, then each will be responsible for an equal share of the $60 minimum guide fee.

Tours with a live Licensed Battlefield Guide require a reservation and are subject to availability.

We recommend a live Licensed Battlefield Guide to Civil War buffs, those who have a special interest (e.g., in a particular regiment), and/or those who want the very best possible educational experience.
