Guided History Tours

*Note - guided walking tours will not take place in April 2021. We hope to return for the fall season! 

Every spring and fall, the Huntsville/Madison County Convention & Visitors Bureau shows off Huntsville and Madison through its free walking tours. Tours are guided by local experts and focus on the historic districts of both cities.

If you’re planning a visit to the area in April or October, you should definitely save room in your vacation itinerary for these annual free events. They’re popular for both visitors and locals. Plus, did we mention they’re free? No tickets or reservations are needed for walking tours. Just bring yourself (and your thirst for historical knowledge!)

Free guided history tours like these are part of the Alabama Tourism Department’s walking tours initiative – and Alabama is the first state to coordinate such annual, state-wide events.
