my wife and I planned the trip and tour in Gettysburg last minute. The Black cat tour was a very fun and interesting tour done by John. He was very knowledgeable and fun. We would recommend this to other couples or groups! Next we want to do the ghost hunting tour with John!

Did the black cat candlelight tour & it was a fun experience. While it was not really very spooky, it was interesting to hear the human interest stories & historical information.

Signed up for the 2 hr "intense tour" hoping to encounter some historical spirits. We instead were in an apartment where a murder took place in 1981. Spent 2 hours with all kinds of equipment and really had little activity. Not the guides fault. I guess I was hoping more of an older spirit, historical ghost hunt. It was an... More

This is a very entertaining tour but be aware it is more history than paranormal. Our guide told us right up front that it was his first night for this tour and he usually did history tours. It was informative and he did include some good ghost stories..

We've gone on an Extreme Ghost Adventure with with GGT before and had a great time so we got my bf's mom tickets again for Christmas. The first time was fun but as newbies we were a little shy with asking questions and using the equipment. This time at the Tillie Pierce House we were ready! I highly recommend doing... More

We booked this tour with our room at the Tillie Pierce Inn. Although it was very informative and our guide was quite funny we didn't have much activity. In their defense we did only book 2 hour tour and not 3 hour so maybe those who stayed after were able to experience more. The school was across the street from... More

We got lucky got to be the only ones for two nights in a row. Once with Shady and once with Lt John. They preformed great both nights. Excellent talkers. They each told different stories and it was very educational. Would recommend this to anyone. It took about 1 hour for each tour, walking around town and stopping for stories.

Tonight we went on the Black Cat Tour with Dan "The Kilted Wonder". Dan was a great tour guide! He told really interesting stories and we loved his appearance. The tour was about an hour long and went through some interesting historical spots in town. We will definitely be going on another one of their tours when we come back... More
