This was a great event that my kids loved (girls ages 9 & 12). It was fun, we enjoyed the other family we met, and the kids haven't stopped telling their friends about doing this. It was great! I wasn't sure what to expect but we had to walk around town following clues. My kids loved the suspense and my... More

Fun scavenger hunt outing thru Gettysburg town. We had fun and it seemed like the actors had fun too... unless they were THAT GOOD at acting! Kids enjoyed it too.

This was a very fun activity. However, I feel like it could be even better. The real issue I had was a group of people put in the group with us. I understand this is not the fault of the company but it would be nice to do this on your own if wanted. I also really thought we'd be... More

This experience was a lot of fun! My three kids 12, 10, and 8 loved it. My wife and I did as well. Walk the town of Gettysburg trying to solve a mystery. Play along, join in the conversation, banter with the actors, and have an experience! We just did this today and my kids are still talking and laughing... More

As long as you are opening to, and willing to participate in, a little silliness this is a really fun way to spend a couple of hours. I gave it a "Very Good" rating instead of "excellent" due to the cost. Although we had a really fun time, I expected something more for the money. Without giving too much away,... More

We did this on our final day in Gettysburg and it was a lot of fun. This is a well thought out tour and in a part of Gettysburg that we had not seen earlier in our trip. The actors all stayed in character and made it a realistic experience. Grandson ( age 9) absolutely loved it.

My 9 year old son had a blast as well as the rest of the adults. Met some great people from both coasts! The Lost Treasure team was funny, personable and open to feedback. Great customer service, great idea and a totally unique experience.

This is a well thought out adventure that gets you to tour the town of Gettysburg, while taking you to places that you may not have ordinarily gone to or overlooked during your stay. The actors played their parts well and were very convincing in their roles. You get out of this adventure what you put into it, and our... More

We had so much fun! You really need to participate and go with it and it makes it so much better! What a great, novel idea that we've never seen before. Our 2 sons (10 and 13) LOVED it! We did too!
