The tour guide, Shorty, was amazing. The tour was interactive and informative. We could tell that she really enjoys her job. It is obvious that she knows the history of Gettysburg and not just enough to pass for a tour guide. The tour was very inexpensive and we can't wait to go on another tour!!!!

We bought a groupon for the Black Cat Tour. Tour guide was VERY entertaining and informative--told lots of ghost stories and history of certain ghost stories. Absolutely no ghosts seen, but still very interesting! Would love to try a different type of ghost tour next time and see/hear more ghost tales!

Just came back from the "Battle Cry" tour with Lt. John, Lt, John was very nice, friendly, and well versed in his history of the battle, even adding in some personal family history, as he is a descendant of a soldier that participated in Pickett's Charge. It was very evident he not only had a passion for ghosts, but also... More

We just got done with the battle cry tour with this great lady telling all of us how it was in the town during the fighting and how things went down. She had the knowledge and the skill to handle a big group and she even got some involvement from the guests. Thank you so much and we will let... More

We enjoyed our 1st walk so much that we came back the next night for a 2nd tour. Both the Black Cat and the Battle Cry tours are well worth it. They are more of a history tour than a ghost hunt, so it is perfect for families with younger kids. The 2nd night we took a picture into the... More

First, I should mention I do not believe in ghosts. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the Battle Cry and Black Cat tours with Gettysburg Ghost tours on the same night. I enjoyed both tours especially the Battle Cry tour. I found the locations to be more interesting for the Battle Cry tour, especially some of the hotel ghost stories our guide shared... More

My husband and I went on the hour-long Black Cat tour on a hot night in August. We chose to take this tour because of a deal offered on Groupon, and Gettysburg Ghost Tours did not disappoint. The description of our particular tour on the website stated that we would be taken along "Gettysburg's quiet dark alleys by candelights to... More

Our tour guide was Ginger. She was dressed in period attire, which I loved! Not to mention, she carried a candle lit lantern, which I thought was a nice touch. The tour covered a couple blocks & we spent the majority of the time near the national cemetery & the Dobbin House. (We ate dinner there, it was awesome) We... More
