What to Expect

Travel back in time to July 1863 and explore the Gettysburg Battlefield on an enclosed coach for a bus tour of the historical site that was a defining event of the American Civil War. Your expert guide will take you through the three bloody days in which thousands of Union and Confederate soldiers lost their lives.   

Learn how the opposing troops headed toward each other along the same road. See battle landmarks including East Cemetery Hill, McPherson Ridge, the Railroad Cut, and the Eternal Light Peace Memorial, dedicated on the battle's 75th anniversary.

Hear how Confederate troops attacked Culp's Hill and Little Round Top but were held off by Union soldiers. See Devil's Den, a boulder-strewn ridge where some of the worst fighting occurred. Get a look at Bloody Run, the creek between Little Round Top and Devil's Den that briefly ran red with the blood of fallen soldiers, and the Wheatfield, which was said to be completely covered with the bodies of the dead.

Finally, pass the site of Pickett's Charge, the Confederacy's climactic assault on Union positions on Cemetery Ridge on the last day of the battle. See the farthest point reached in this attack, referred to as ‘The High-Water Mark of the Confederacy,’ and learn how the Confederate troops were ultimately forced to retreat.

There is a restroom and snack break (at your own expense) halfway through the tour. Your two-hour coach tour of major historical sites of the Battle of Gettysburg ends where it began in central Gettysburg.

It rained the two full days we visited Gettysburg, so we took advantage of the indoor events, museums, tours, etc. Our tour bus was crowded, but the certified tour guide gave us a comprehensive tour of the monuments, facts about the Battle itself, etc. He...More

Tour of the Gettysburg Battlefield and Surrounding Areas

Great guide

The bus tour of the battleground was very good mainly because of the expertise of our guide. She was knowledgeable and completely versed in all the aspects of the 3 day battle at Gettysburg.

I don't know. Best bet is to call the tour company. Tour is worth the effort to find out for sure.
