This was my second ghost tour with the Gettysburg Paranormal Association. The first tour was one year ago today in which my daughter and I investigated the Hoffman Mansion. It was awesome and we had just the right amount of activity. The investigator “night monkey” was friendly as well. I recommended them to family and friends alike. Move ahead one... More

When I took my first tour with Robert "Night Monkey" Sammons leading, I told him what I do for a living.. He asked if I was a skeptic, to which I said "no, I believe my own evidence". That night at the Hoffman, I became a believer.. Not only did I get a photograph of an orb with a face... More

We took the "Intense Ghost Hunt" offered by Gettysburg Ghost Tours. It runs 9 PM - 11 PM and costs $35.00 plus tax, per person. The guides were nice but looked like they were fresh from a 12 step meeting (AA/NA). One of the tour guides took about 10 minutes to explain how to use the ghost hunting gadgets. Then... More

We are sorry to hear that your expectations were not met. Your investigators did present the history of the site you investigated.Since the sites we often use are abandoned old Civil War Farm houses and Field hospital, there would be no working bathrooms. The three investigators on site did interact amongst the group, assisting them during the ghost hunt. The... More

We did the intense ghost hunt tour. Our guide gave us a 12 minute talk about the different EVP machines we would be using. Then they took us to a house that was said to be haunted and allowed a large group to walk around. That was all the tour involved. The guides were not very friendly or interactive. What... More

As we responded to your husband, Thomas L, who also posted a negative review, we are sorry that our investigation was not in keeping with your expectations. Our investigators are very knowledgeable as well as enthusiastic. You would be hard pressed to find a more friendly group! Perhaps if you had taken the time during the hunt to tell our... More

We decided to get tickets for the 7pm ghost tour on 5/24/15 and were not disappointed. The tour guide we had in our group was very knowledgeable and provided good stories of residents of Gettysburg and ghostly hauntings. She provided a lot of good information and we learned a lot. It was interesting to learn that there were 3600 bodies... More

"Wow - Awesome Tour"...and that really doesn't do justice. Two friends and I took the 8:00 pm Ghost Tour with "Spooky" on 13 May 2015. We LOVED the tour and Spooky's talent and passion is unrivaled. Spooky possesses a level of passion and depth of local knowledge that is beyond compare. Spooky brings true accounts of local history as well... More

We did the Battle Cry tour with Dan as our guide. Dan did an awesome job of telling us some history of the Dobbin House, its servants' quarters and other places. We took lots of pics and can't wait to go through them to see if we captured anything. We will go back and try another tour.

Don't waste your money on this so called "As Seen on TV" attraction in Gettysburg, PA! It is the biggest ripoff in town! Information that conflicts with what professional tour guides and Park Rangers as well as competently written books is mostly what turned me off. Definitely not worth your time or your money!

You mistakenly posted this review for the wrong tour company. The group you are referring to is a few doors down. We have notified Trip Advisor of this mistake and we do hope that the next time you are in town that you are able to join us for a tour to experience a company that shares accurate history. More

I highly recommend taking the intense ghost hunt with the Gettysburg Paranormal Association. This was the highlight of my trip to Gettysburg this past weekend! Robert was the investigator leading the group and he was very knowledgeable, helpful and funny. I would definitely do this again in the future when I return to Gettysburg.
