Love the Jennie Wade house. It is so interesting to learn about the history here and I love going on the ghost tours. They do a wonderful job with all their tours. The staff and tour guides are wonderful and answer any questions you may have.

Visited the Jennie Wade house while on a ghost tour and it was marvelous!!! It was like stepping back in time! The layout of the house, all of the furnishings and just the feel of this house makes it worth a visit! Enjoyable time had by all!!!

The story of Jennie Wade was very interesting and our tour guide was very good. Was a little skeptical on some of the things she was saying. Since I have been home I have looked at my pictures and zoomed in on something in the photo, think I got something.

My boyfriend and I took this tour this morning. We got there a few minutes before 10am and I'm glad we did. Our tour was only us and another couple and when we were done they were extremely busy with others waiting. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and the tour we found very interesting. Cute gift shop as well... More

Roger was our tour guide, and he gave us a lot of great information about the Battle of Gettysburg and Jennie Wade herself. One of the best tours I took while staying in Gettysburg! And they have a Triple A discount!

This was my first time visiting Gettysburg and the Jennie Wade house and I have fell in love with this beautiful and historic town. The tour guide was very informative and super friendly. The house is preserved as it was and the story behind it was very interesting. A must see when in Gettysburg! Best $8 ever spent!

Great insight into the Jennie Wade story. Tour guide, Bob, was very knowledgeable, spoke slowly with passion - almost as if Jennie was a family member to him. He added so many details to a great memorial. A great experience!

I had been looking forward to this for years. Jacqui was the best tour guide ever. well worth the 8.00 admission, and Im a cheapskate. I highly recommend stopping by if you have the chance, and maybe youll get to have Jacqui as your guide

The tour guide was lovely however they didn't give you much time to take it all in. There were very few original items in the home which was disappointing but still a good stop.
