OUR TOURING PARTNERS
Please note that we can ONLY accept reservations for individuals and commercial tour companies desiring personal guides for battlefield tours in their vehicle. Those desiring guided horse tours, motorcycle tours, bicycle tours, or guided segway tours must make those reservations through the websites of those companies. They do use only NPS-licensed guides but handle their own reservations. As a convenience, you will find links to those below. ALBG bears no responsibility for the actions of these companies or consequences that may arise in your dealing with these organizations. The links are provided as a convenient courtesy. Just as you can hire an LBG to give you and your family a tour in your own vehicle, these companies hire our LBG’s to conduct tours using their own unique forms of transportation.
|Gettysburg Tour Company||The Gettysburg Tour Company hires LBG’s to narrate many of their tours on air-conditioned and comfortable coaches as well as their famous open-air double-decker buses.|
|Gettysburg Heritage Center||The Gettysburg Heritage Center is an excellent place to start any battlefield tour experience with an interesting interactive museum and twenty-minute orientation movie. They offer a variety of traditional licensed guided tours both by reservation and walk-in. Guided carriage tours of the Battlefield also leave from this facility.|
Horseback trail rides and narrated two-hour tours, conducted by LBG’s, are run by National Riding Stables from Artillery Ridge Campground on Taneytown Road and by Confederate Trails and Hickory Hollow from McMillan Woods. To make reservations, visit their individual websites listed below:
|Bicycle Tours||GettysBike Tours offers regularly scheduled tours of the battlefield, again utilizing Licensed Battlefield Guides. They have a small contact facility in the Bus lot of the Gettysburg Foundation / Gettysburg National Military Park Visitor Center.|
|Segway Tours||One of the unique ways to experience Gettysburg is via the Segway personal transportation device and yes, the Licensed Battlefield Guides have individuals who give these tours under the sponsorship of SegTours, LLC. SegTours operates from its headquarters at the Gettysburg Shopping Center on Springs Avenue. For those interested in experiencing this unique device SegTours also offers un-narrated rides.|
|Gettysburg Foundation||This is the non-profit organization that operates the National Park Service Visitor Center. In addition to selling tickets to the various attractions within the park, they also schedule on-site guide services for both private car tours and bus tours. Arrangements made via the Foundation will incur a $12 per tour surcharge which is placed on all such guide reservations. Bus and Van reservations also have a surcharge. Visit their reservations page|
