Battlefield Tours & Orientation

Battlefield Tours & Orientation

Visit the Gettysburg Battlefield, famously known for three dramatic days in July 1863.

The fields that surround the small town of Gettysburg are vast in their landscape and stories. But it is the 6,000 acre Civil War military park, dedicated to the soldiers who fought here, that so many come to visit. For first-time visitors, an orientation program before your Gettysburg battlefield tour is a great way to understand what you are about to see.

There are lots of ways to choose to visit the Gettysburg Battlefield. You can see the fields by horse, Segway, carriage, bus or from your own car with a guide or on your own. You can even take an iPad tour or spend time with a Ranger. No matter how you take in the Gettysburg Battlefield, you will be inspired.
