The “Ghosts of Gettysburg Tours” are best described as a combination of history and mystery. The battle that took place in Gettysburg was horrific. We do our best to treat the men who gave their lives with the respect they deserve. We use ghost stories, as relayed to Mr. Nesbitt by those who have experienced them, to explore what happened here. Anyone can make up a scary ghost story, but somehow, knowing that people experienced the ghostly happenings that our guides describe, has to make one wonder if an encounter is in your own future! Our tours include as much of the town as can be walked comfortably. The buildings in Gettysburg are all privately owned, but from what we've been told, just as many ghosts are wandering the streets as are hanging out within four walls! If you're looking for a "halloween haunted house" kind of experience, this is not the tour for you!

I really enjoy taking the Ghost Walk Tour. I though it was worth the money. They tell great stories of civil war history and why Gettysburg is so haunted (if you like that sort of thing).

The Ghosts of Gettysburg tour was a great experience. We traveled by candlelight with are historically dressed civillian guide Steve around the town. He told us legends and lore about ghosts and haunts. He had a great sense of humor and was very entertaining. He was also compassionate about my wife's handicapped condition and made us feel welcome in Gettysburg.

Took a Halloween group of 18 on the Baltimore Street tour last night with Annie as our guide. She did an excellent job!! We learned a lot of history and listened to some great ghost stories. I took a series of photos at the old school, in one of the photos it looked (what I believe) to be a figure... More

We had a great time at the Ghost of Gettysburg Tour! Ray was our tour guide and he was fabulous. Ray was very knowledgeable about the history of Gettysburg, and was great fun in his story telling. Would definitely recommend anyone to do. There is walking involved and a camera would be fun to have

Our guide, Annie, was knowledgeable & made the candlelight walking tour fun. Several of us caught a glimpse of ghosts in our pictures ~ We would definitely consider doing another tour with this company if we return to Gettysburg!

I've been on quite a few ghost tours. I told my boyfriend that he HAD to go on this tour. We were lucky enough to get Ann again. The combination of history along with the ghost stories is awesome. It's probably one of the reasons I favor this tour over the others. That is the reason people come to Gettysburg... More

I will start off by saying that I am sure this company and tour has potential with a great guide, but for us it was so horrible I was close to demanding a refund. Our tour we got a guide who it was his very first night doing a tour by himself, and it showed. He spoke so softly you... More

This was my first ghost tour and it did not impress me. My husband said that with another tour guide it would have been better.
