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!

Our guide's name was Rich and he was amazing! He is dressed in period clothing and carried a lantern. Our group was small, which was definitely to our benefit. It was nice and intimate and we were able to keep close to our guide and hear everything. The tour is based on the books, which I am a huge fan... More

Our guide Bill, dressed in period clothing, was very informative. The tour walk is an easy walk, maybe a mile of flat walking . Many interesting stories as we stopped along the way at various points of interest. No ghosts, but we had a great time

We all thought that our tour guide and story teller, Annie, was a great story teller. She asked a few questions at the start to tailor her stories to the group. The walk was about a mile through town and stopped here and there to tell of the history and of course ghosts. There are a few hot spots in... More

My husband and I enjoyed this tour. Our guide Nancy was an excellent storyteller and did a great job keeping things interesting. She even handed out candy part way through the tour and was hung around afterwards to chat and answer questions. It was a fun way to spend a Friday night, learning about Gettysburg's history and being entertained by... More

Fun night out with my 10 daughter. We had a great tour guild by the name of Joe. He was a great story teller and know a lot about the town. Not scary, but the stories of the town people's at the time of the battle worth the time. Would recommend for all ages.

I was lucky enough to participate in the Baltimore street tour on Tuesday (August 23, 2016). Like the other ghost tours I did in Gettysburg, I found the history of this tour to be quite interesting. I am a big fan of history and I learned interesting facts about the battle of Gettysburg and the town itself. I don't believe... More

I am the skeptic and my friend has an open mind. So we went on the candlelight Ghost of Gettysburg tour. Our guide Anne has been doing this over 20 years and has lots of fun and interesting stories. We didn't have any contact but that doesn't mean it isn't out there!

I went on a ghost tour with Annie as our "tour guide". WOW was she good!!! I was very impressed with her story telling gift. She gave us a lot of interesting history of the battle and the town at that period of time. Was very fascinated with the history and stories she told. Many others were impressed also as... More

I had taken the Carlisle Street tour before, but my 10 year old grandchildren had not. Our guide was Sandy, and she did a superb job. I learned many things that I did not already know, since the guides are not held to a set script. My grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed it, also, and were still talking about it days later.... More

I really researched ghost tours here on tripadvisor before we left - there are so many! I chose this company because the owner seemed the most research oriented. I was not disappointed. Our guide, Larry, provided many stories, great historical background, ideas of how ghosts interact and some of his own ghost hunting evidence. We booked for the last tour... More
