My husband and I took this trip last year and are going back to take it again - it was that good! My husband actually had a couple of experiences that stuck with him, including feeling a cat brush up against his leg and a female voice say "no" in his ear when no one was near him. The tour... More

Being in the actual orphanage was great, the tour not so much. the stuff with the "paranormal expert" seemed a bit staged. The part in the basement with an reenactor was ok, she did a great job but I specifically chose the midnight tour to not have that part. Not worth the 13 dollars per person, Id say 7 or... More

Our tour guide was Alexis and she was amazing!! We did two tours with her this past Saturday night and very much enjoyed it. Her acting was amazing and the stories she had to tell were even more amazing. I would so recommend the ghostly images tours to any one!! I may even do them again if i ever go... More

My children and I took the orphanage tour with Eric, our ghostly story teller. It was great! The stories were wonderful and sent a chill down your spine. We ended in the basement of the original orphanage, where the story was terrible and chilling. While we didn't see any ghosts, I did get photos of some orbs, and several in... More

If you believe in the spirits this tour comes with great stories of the orphanage and things people have experienced. If u are a true non believer like my fiancé, don't waste your time.

I've done quite a few ghost tours in Gettysburg but this one was probably the best. The tour guide was very good. He was very excited about the tour he was giving and an excellent story teller. Well worth the money. I would do it again in a heart beat. I also got a photo of a ghost here! My... More

I can not accurately describe how awful this tour is! From the very beginning it was a disorganized mess! The story they tell is extremely gimmicky and has a lame summer camp feel to it. After standing outside in the freezing weather while the guides tried to figure out which way was up, we were hearded like cattle into the... More

I have been on ghost tours all over the country and without a doubt the "Midnight in the Orphanage" tour was the absolute worst!!! I love a good ghost story but all I got on this tour was ..."Rosa cross the rods" and with a slight (movement)of hand, the rods would cross. Then imagine the cradle rocking, lights flickering, fog...

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PITIFUL TOUR unless you want to hear "I was like and she was like and we were like EEEEEEAAAAAAAAAA" First of all, the owner (I'm guessing) tells you before you even start the tour that chances of SEEING a ghost are slim but there are other ways of experiencing them (sound, smell, touch)....

My daughters and I attended the Ghostly Images "Ghostly Encounter" tour while we were in Gettysburg. It sounded like a fun thing to do to get into the Halloween spirit. Our tour guide was the stern matron of the orphanage who has come back from the dead to tell her story about what happened at the orphanage. the actress was... More
