The “Ghosts of Gettysburg Tours” are best described as a combination of history and mystery. The battle that took place in Gettysburg was horrific. 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!

Worst story teller we've ever experienced. Didn't even respect historical context. Acted like she was drunk. Presented much from 'her' perspective. After an hour we couldn't take the disrespect if history any more and left the tour.

We heard more on historical happenings and our guide's role in various TV shows than we did ghost stories. The ones we did hear were ended with some logical explanation, like "or maybe the college kids were just drunk." sigh. He also spent too much time saying, "I'm not going to say that I believe in ghosts. Let's just say... More

We enjoyed this tour of Gettysburg and found it very informative and interesting. Definitely one of the highlights of our weekend. The only drawback, as others have mentioned, was a difficulty in hearing our tour guide over traffic-- they probably can't stop talking every time a motorcycle or truck roars past because they have a schedule to stick to, but...

We booked the Gettysburg College Campus Walk through “The Ghosts of Gettysburg” on a Friday evening. There was a fairly large group with us that night. The tour guide was an older woman, who I am sure has a lot of knowledge about Gettysburg, but her voice was weak and was hard to hear most of the time. This has... More

So sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your tour. We have 15-20 guides and each has their own storytelling style, but we expect all to deliver the stories with enthusiasm and intrigue. Our goal is to entertain the visitor by conveying the history of Gettysburg through the ghost stories collected by Mr. Nesbitt.This is where we differ from some... More

Based on the books by Mark Nesbitt, the Ghosts of Gettysburg are a mixture of history and ghost stories from the battle of Gettysburg. Definitely the classiest of the ghost walks. I have been on several and they are always interesting. Annie is a particularly gifted ghost guide. Try to get on one of her tours if at all possible!

Our grandson wants to go on ghost walks in every city we take him to. This was the best we have ever done because it didn't rely on fake ghosts and all that hyped up junk we've experienced on other tours in other cities. Our guide told us real stories about the terrible things that happened in Gettysburg and brought... More

Being off season not all the tours were open yet.... But we were able to take the Baltimore Street tour. We were taken to different places of historical importance and given very knowledgeable information. Our tour guide was great! We were able to obtain some very good pictures.... Possibly capturing a few things that would interest many! This is a... More

Ann from Ghosts of Gettysburg Candlelight Walking tours brought a real sense of personality as well as a deep knowledge of ghost stories and local lore, especially Jenny Wade. It was a great time and she is an personable, talented guide.
