Experience the history of Gettysburg and take 50% off the price of our DC After Dark tour when you book these two together. These two tours make the ideal day (you also do not have to take both tours in the same day) seeing both Gettysburg and a number of other stops that are steeped in history. Relax as you tour the city with us and spend a day checking out the battlefield before an evening spent in DC.

What can you see on this Tour?

When looking for things to do in Washington, visitors can be discouraged from seeing Gettysburg because of the travelling involved. There’s no need to be worried about this with our tour, as we’ll pick you up from Union Station and take you directly there. This is much easier than using public transport and you’ll also have the benefit of a licensed driver guide guide taking you to your destination.

The Battle of Gettysburg was one of the most pivotal moments in American history and there’s no better place to learn all about it. Your day starts with a visit to the Shriver House Museum. In this location, you’ll be privy to seeing what life was like for those who lived in the town during the Civil War. These aren’t the tales of the soldiers; they’re the stories of those that lived in Gettysburg. The museum was the home of the Shriver family and the house has been restored to its 1860s state. Reenactors are on hand to show visitors how they would have lived in this time. There’s no electricity or modern technology inside the house, so visitors can get a real feel for how things would have been for this family. There are a number or artifacts as well, such as dolls and ammunition, which are on display in the home.

The day in Gettysburg continues with a visit to the Gettysburg Visitor Center, where you will see an orientation film and receive a unique Cyclorama experience. The Cyclorama is a 360-degree painted mural, depicting the third day of the battle, highlighting specific locations, as well Pickett's Charge. Finally, seeing the battlefield first hand is a must. Experienced, award-winning tour guides will board the motor coach with you and drive around the battlefield for two hours, showing you places of note like Little and Big Round Top, the Devil's Den, Peach Orchard, Wheat Field and more.

After all that excitement, it’s time to head out on the 3-hour DC After Dark tour (7-10 pm through October 30th; 6:30-9:30 pm from October 31 through December 30). Ride around the city at night and get off to view the monuments in person, we’ll even stop for a photo op at the White House (We won't go into White House.). If you want to learn more about this tour specifically, visit our dedicated DC After Dark page.

Why should you go on this combo tour?

Many scholars point at this part of the Civil War as the great turning point. The experience of seeing the battlefield is humbling and the re-enactors and staff make it a great day out. Then, you also have the DC After Dark tour to look forward to in the evening.
