opt to hear an Escorted Audio tour or have a live Licensed
For the basic quoted price, our battlefield tours are
escorted by a staff member and utilize 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 Escorted Audio tour was designed and narrated by Gary
Kross who has more than 25 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.
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.
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
You may alternatively opt to have a live guide go along with the tour
for an additional fee of $15.00 per person. Guides are licensed
and provided by the National Park Service and, upon request, we will
arrange to have them accompany you on your tour.
total guide fee (i.e, shared by all participants) of $60 applies.
Except by special arrangement, customers outside your party
may join the guided tour group and will also be subject to
the guide fee.
So if there
are fewer than four people on such a tour, then each will
be responsible for an equal share of the $60 minimum guide
Although the recorded audio provides a comprehensive tour
experience, there is a distinct advantage for some visitors
to be able to ask questions of a live guide. Use of a live
Licensed Battlefield Guide requires
a reservation and is subject to availability.
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.
