You'll then visit the Gettysburg Visitor Center, where you'll sit through orientation and prepare for your day. Watch a short film narrated by Morgan Freeman, then enjoy a 360-degree experience of the battlefield.

Have a look around the Visitor Center, and see some of the artillery and memorabilia from the war. The last, and most exciting, part of the tour is your two-hour visit to the battlefield. Listen to an award-winning guide as you explore landmarks such as Big and Little Round Top, Devil's Den Peach Orchard and more!
