We are sorry you did not have an enjoyable experience. Please come back and try our ghost hunt which covers mostly paranormal happenings and not as much history. We are very sorry, and hope you give us another try.

Had a wonderful experience on the walking ghost tour. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, entertaining, and very well versed in the history and folklore of Gettysburg. He engaged the ghost Bill Poole! Definitely recommend this tour. Take the late stroll.

Loved it. Learned a lot of information on what exactly happened during July 1,2,3 of 1863, very fascinating. Tour guide was fantastic, knew his history. Enjoyed it and would take the tour again.
