We were sold on the Sleepy Hollow tour when we heard they do not engage in "parlor tricks" like some of the other tours in town. Also, we were told we would go to a Civil War "camp" to hear stories. Plus, one of the salespeople said she was a 6th generation Gettysburg-ian. Unfortunately she was not the tour guide. Instead, we had an 18-year-old who was nice but inexperienced. She frequently broke character and tripped over words while speaking. We tried to forgive this, but the tour itself was kind of disappointing. The guide led us to someone's backyard which was set up like a "camp" with tents, props and seating. We could hear neighbors taking out the trash, talking on cell phones, and traffic noise during the stories. Of course they can't control those aspects, but it did detract from the experience. The ghost stories were the same ones that are widely published and told in books. That's ok, but the guide needs to work on her storytelling skills.
