Battlefields Tours of Virginia came about through our desire to provide comprehensive private battlefield experiences. We have since accompanied countless guests around Virginia’s most compelling Civil War sites.

Formerly, many history enthusiasts would visit Gettysburg before coming to Virginia for similar offerings, only to have a difficult time finding a suitable battlefield tour.

We addressed this need and created a team of knowledgeable battlefield guides, primarily based out of the Central Virginia area.

Founded in 2018 and known initially as “Fredericksburg Tours”, we began with tours solely in the Fredericksburg area.

Since then, we’ve multiplied the number of battlefield tours we offer in Virginia to include battlefields in the Culpeper, Shenandoah Valley, and Richmond areas due to the countless requests we were receiving from guests
