RESERVE A GUIDED TOUR
BY A LICENSED PROFESSIONAL
Gratuities Are Discretionary

Our licensed battlefield guide tours are available during park hours from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m.  Tours must end by the time the park tour roads close to vehicles at 
5 p.m.  Campaign tours may extend beyond park hours.

Our guides are called in as needed so it is best to RESERVE your tour in advance so that your guide will be standing by to meet your time schedule.  However, walk-ins are equally welcome and usually a guide can reach the Visitor Center in the 20 minutes it takes to watch our great documentary on the Siege.

Availability information and reservations can be made through the Vicksburg Convention and Visitors Bureau by calling  (601) 636-3827 or the Park at (601) 636-0583.

The reservation office is open until 5 p.m.

TIPS FOR A GREAT TOUR

  • Silence all electronic devices.

  • Watch the movie at the Visitor Center first, and review the fiber optic campaign map if possible.

  • It is recommended that  your guide drive your vehicle for a safer, more enjoyable tour.  Guides are experienced at driving, pointing, and talking.

  • Watch for walkers, bikers, and local hazards, e.g. fire ants, uneven terrain, and ironworks heated by the sun.

  • Climbing on the memorials and cannon
    is not permitted.
