Great tour

Tour guide was great. Had 9 year old nephew with us. He had learned about Jennie Wade in school. Tour guide was kind and receptive to questions and allowed a lot of pictures.

You can't visit Gettysburg without visiting the Jennie Wade House. The house is restored with period furnishings.

Our guide was quite informative, and well crafted in story-telling. A terrific site and wonderful tour. My wife and I plan on coming back for the nightly Ghost tour. Good time!

We have been to the Jennie Wade House in the daytime and at night. It truly is a sad story. Jennie was the only civilian killed during the Battle of Gettysburg. The tour is very interesting and they tell you the story as you are going around the house. At night it is little more eerie as there are spirits... More

This was an excellent tour!!! Learning about a true America hero...I loved some of the real artifacts and the tour guide was excellent as well. The tour lasts about 50 min and you get to see touch and feel the actual place of Jennie Wades death. Well worth the money it has great value and was a great history lesson.

We really enjoyed seeing the layout of the house. Several pieces and architecture are original to the house. You could almost feel the energy of the house.

This was a great tour. Our tour guide was incredible. She kept everyone entertained and was very knowledgeable. She engaged with the kids making them a big part of the tour. It's really worth the little bit they charge.

We live less than an hour away from Gettysburg and come here multiple times a year for the past 15 years. We finally decided to take the Jennie Wade House tour. Her actual house is down the road a bit more and we toured that when the Christian Commission used to rent that space. It was interesting to see how... More
