What should I wear?
The tour is an all-outside activity. We recommend shoes or sneakers, rather than sandals or flip flops. Please check the daily weather report to dress for the outside temperature.
Is the tour suitable for children?
We have had children of all ages on our tour. The “Memories of the Battle” tour is the most graphic, where we show pictures taken during the aftermath of the battle. Parents have the opportunity to view the pictures first and decide if they are appropriate for their children.
The “Women of Gettysburg Tour” and the “Irish of Gettysburg Tour” are more family-friendly tours.
What if it rains?
If we have light rain or drizzle, we will run the tour. If there is heavy rain, or thunder and lightening, the tour will be canceled. You can reschedule or get a refund.
Should I tip my tour guide?
Tips are greatly appreciated – and show that you liked the tour, and your guide did a fantastic job of storytelling.
Can I bring my dog?
Yes, we are pet-friendly. Pets on leashes are very welcome.
Are tours available during the day or during the off-season?
Yes, tours can certainly be scheduled during the day! To arrange a special tour time, please call your tour guide at 717-398-4640.
Will I see a ghost?
Hidden Memories Tours are all-history tours, with no paranormal or ghost stories. We have never seen a ghost on our tours.
I bought my tickets, but my plans changed, and I can not make the tour. What are my options?
Tour tickets are transferable. You can use your tickets for a tour on another date, even another trip. Or you can give it to a friend or family member. To reschedule a tour, please call us at 717-398-4640 or eMail us at email@example.com.
I am late for the tour. What should I do?

Call your tour guide at 717-398-4640 to meet you there 30 minutes after the tour begins. After the tour, your guide will tell all the stories you did not hear. You will not miss a thing.
