What can I expect?

At the start of this tour, you’ll see the rolling countryside of Pennsylvania on the way to the battlefield. The day starts off in the Shriver House Museum, which is a restored house from the Civil War that provides for a living history experience. The Shrivers were a family that lived close to the battlefield and this home is dedicated to showing how they lived, and how civilians were affected by the destruction and chaos surrounding them. 

The next part of the tour will take you to the Gettysburg Visitor Center, where you’ll start by getting some background information for the rest of the day and get ready to step out and learn about the American Civil War. You'll begin with a short film, narrated by actor Morgan Freeman, which will give you some of the historical backing for the tour.

Following the film, you will go upstairs to a one-of-a-kind cyclorama, which offers a 360-degree experience of the battlefield. 

The museum at the Visitor Center is a hidden gem that gives you the timeline over the events leading up to the famous battle. It also allows you to see some of the artillery used and memorabilia of the Confederacy.

At the end is the highlight of the tour; a two-hour guided visit to the battlefield. You will board the motor coach and drive around and get off at such key landmarks as Big and Little Round Top, Devil's Den, the Peach Orchard and more.
