Travel through picturesque countryside to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania from Washington DC where you will enjoy a fully-narrated historical tour of the Battle of Gettysburg, a trip to Shriver House Museum, and the Gettysburg Visitor Center as well as visit these awesome places. This 10.5-hour experience is perfect for history lovers of all ages. This day-tour ensures you will have a memorable and historic journey in Gettysburg.

At the start of the day, you will meet your group and guide at 50 Massachusetts Ave NE Washington, DC on the bus terminal level. You'll ride on a comfortable, air-conditioned motorcoach throughout your journey. Your experienced and knowledgeable guide will take you to each location and tell you all about them on the way, but they will not get out and accompany you while you are exploring; you will have a set amount of time before you are to be back at the bus.

Shriver House Museum

On your ride to Shriver House Museum, you will learn about the Shrivers and their lives during the war. This restored 1860 Civil War home is unlike anything else you've ever seen; every single room is furnished back to its 1860s appearance. In this beautiful home, you will learn about the civilians who found themselves in the middle of one of the most famous battles in United States history.

Gettysburg Visitors Center

Your next stop will be Gettysburg Visitors Center. Here, you'll watch a short film narrated by Morgan Freeman and learn about the historic background for the rest of the tour. Then, you will head upstairs to the cyclorama, which is an amazing device that offers you a 360-degree view of the battlefield. Spend some time walking around the center and viewing the artifacts; visualize what life was like during Civil War times. As you walk around, you will learn of the timeline leading up to the battle and see some of the most valuable artifacts from United States History. 

Battle of Gettysburg

The last stop on the tour is a two-hour visit to the battlefield. You'll drive around and get off at various locations like the Peach Orchard and Devil's Den. This is very convenient for those who do not want to walk around the whole property; plus, you'll get live commentary throughout the whole tour! The commentary given by the tour guides will help guests understand the story of the largest battle ever fought on U.S. soil more clearly than ever before. Feel free to ask any questions that you may have as well.

"tour bus driver was great."
Tour bus driver was great. Gettsyburg tour guide should talk less and allow us to see more. I would have liked more time at little big top. The rest of the tour was wonderful and everyone should take this one. The lunch was really good also.
