We do our best to treat the men who gave their lives with the respect they deserve. We use ghost stories, as relayed to Mr. Nesbitt by those who have experienced them, to explore what happened here. Anyone can make up a scary ghost story, but somehow, knowing that people experienced the ghostly happenings that our guides describe, has to make one wonder if an encounter is in your own future! Our tours include as much of the town as can be walked comfortably. The buildings in Gettysburg are all privately owned, but from what we've been told, just as many ghosts are wandering the streets as are hanging out within four walls! If you're looking for a "halloween haunted house" kind of experience, this is not the tour for you! « less

The Candlelight Walking Tour, offered by these fine folks still has me talking about it with my friends, and people I meet. The entire staff is so cordial and welcoming. They could have tried to "sell" their tour, but they knew they wouldn't have to. And they are so right! There are so many aspects of the history of Gettysburg... More

Really enjoyed this ghost walk. The stories we were told were based on actual events and did not sound exaggerated just for show. Our guide was very knowledgable and seemed to enjoy the night as much as we did. He encouraged us to take pictures along the way in hopes that one of us would capture something ghostly on camera....

On our visit to Gettysburg we wanted to do a ghost tour because we've done them other places and really enjoyed them. This one did not disappoint. The emphasis was on history, and not just spooking you out, which my wife really appreciated. Our tour guide was actually a living history person and we really enjoyed all of his stories... More

I've been on many ghost tours over the years, and this is one of the best I've been on. Their tours cover three different areas of the town, so you can take three different tours. Their guides are dress in period attire, and lead the tours through the street by candle lanterns. Along the way they'll stop and tell about... More

We spent the day in Gettysburg and were really looking forward to our ghost tour. We were disappointed! The experience relys on the guide...ours was not convincing. She seemed to be doing the minimum of her job. There was alot of walking and cars were whizzing by making the guide hard to hear. Now, if you've never been on a... More

When we booked this tour, we were not looking for a paranormal experience or a ghost hunting adventure. We simply wanted some creepy stories about the sites and people of Gettysburg. From the reviews and advertisements, this tour seemed that it would fit the bill. While our tour guide was friendly and had a few stories to tell, we were... More

Rich was our guide and he was great! He spoke loud enough for us all to hear (probably 20 of us) and seemed to know his history. We stopped at 3 different locations and Rich gave us information about that location and some of the spooky things that have happened there. He even stuck around at the end to answer... More

I know there is a lot of history in Gettysburg and many reasons to assume, if you believe, that there are ghosts. But the tour you take can make a difference. We had Annie and she made us feel comfortable and added the desire to check out some other spots. Great job, I would do it again!! Thank you.

While on a different (disappointing) tour, we saw the Ghosts of Gettysburg tour. They looked like they were having fun and the guide's costume was fabulous. We joined the tour at 9:45 with Sandy. She was fantastic! Her storytelling style was so convincing, she had us checking over our shoulders for ghosts the whole way home. Way to go, Sandy!

Candlelight tour was suppose to start at 9:45 pm. Never started until after 10pm. Tour guide went off track so many times that by 11pm we had only had 4 stops and most of the information had nothing to do with the history of the buildings. We knew lots about the guides family life but not much more. Was a... More
