Vicksburg National Military Park Licensed Tour Guides

The Licensed Park Guides have been making history come alive at Vicksburg National Military Park since the 1950's. They offer visitors the unique opportunity to explore the battlefield with a professional guide who has excellent knowledge of civilian life and military operations of the campaign, siege, and defense of Vicksburg in the spring and summer of 1863.

Tours are approximately two hours in length, and can be arranged for individuals, families, and groups of all sizes. Guides must ride in the visitor's vehicle as they are not permitted to provide transportation services.
