Private Day Trip to Gettysburg
On this ten hour tour you’ll embark on a short two-hour drive from Washington DC to historic Gettysburg in the comfort of a luxury vehicle. Upon arrival your first stop will be at the Museum & Visitor Center that will set the stage for your Gettysburg visit with the Film, Cyclorama and Museum Experience. After viewing the Morgan Freeman-narrated film “A New Birth of Freedom,” you’ll proceed to the light and sound show of the Cyclorama where you will feel the fury and sense the battle all around you via this painting platform that immerses visitors in the fighting of Pickett’s Charge and describes the history of the painting as well as the battle. Afterwards, you’ll spend some time exploring the museum’s interactive and multimedia exhibits, short films and artifacts of and about the Civil War and the infamous Battle of Gettysburg. After a stop for lunch (*the cost of lunch is not included but we can make restaurant recommendations), your morning experience will have prepared you for your private two-hour tour of the battlefield. Here your licensed battlefield guide will provide you with an informative, engaging and enlightening perspective of the battle, the people, the monuments and the landmarks of the Battle of Gettysburg which involved the largest number of casualties of the entire war and is often described as the war’s turning point.
