Great Experience With My Nephew!

Loved hearing the stories from the tour. We had a amazing tour guide named Kristi. Very knowledgeable. She was very honest and open the accounts of how grisly and gruesome the war was. Before leaving for the night to go back to our hotel, my nephew and I stopped at the Lincoln tree. We both touched the tree, and my hand went numb. My nephew thought the stories were very interesting and we learned a lot about the history of Gettysburg.

Booooo!!!!Terrible ghost tour!
Thomas_H
, Jun 2022
This was a fiasco from the get go. First of all, they overbooked the tour when about 60 people showed up. We had to divide into 3 groups and wasted about 30 minutes trying to organize. Our tour guide was I’ll informed and couldn’t tell a decent ghost story at all much less give pertinent information about what we were looking at. They pretty much ruined the evening. We had to put up with loud motor cycles running up and down Baltimore street and others yelling at us as they passed by. We started noticing people leaving our group and we decided to leave as well since we were board to death. We paid for the extension and I don’t know what that was but we didn’t stick around to find out. Terrible experience and I won’t go through that again at Gettysburg. I will dispute the charges for that waste of time.

The tour itself was rather basic. Despite it being called a civil war ghost tour only one or two of the stores actually pertained to the civil war. The tour guide, although sweet, was unsure of herself and not that entertaining. All in all not a great tour.

Bea was our tour guide. She did a spectacular job however we walked long distances back and forth unnecessarily since the points of interest were along the same path. Once at those sites, she made it fun and interesting. The sad part of the whole evening, which had nothing to do with Bea, were the loud motorcycles continuously going through town. Rating for Bea: A+, tour B, traffic and loudness an F

Best tour guide!

We had the best tour guide Nathan (I think) I'm really bad with names but he was amazing and gave us a lot of information about Gettysburg and the different spirits they town has. Telling us stories of different people, and experiences he has had. He also talk us about the 2 main different types of ghosts/ spirits that remain around. For a few storied of how 2 people died he gave us 2 different stories on what or how they think they died having us think about the reality of how they think they died.

Good, but could have been better
Tom_M
, Apr 2022
I paid for the extended tour and paid for a stuffed ghost, the guide did not know that I had paid for stuffed ghost, so offered me use of a ghost detector, that batteries were dead, so when reminded he gave a replacement one to use. The tour, stories were good, then he let those go that paid for regular tour. We walked up street to one location and then back to witness tree and tour was over in one and half hours and understood the tour was to be two hours so feel short changed.

The guide was a skilled story teller who kept us engaged despite cooler temps than we expected. Signed up for the “extended” tour, but later realized There was an extra “change” charge for adding an extension that was not offered until after initial booking, that irritated me. It was good, but if I do it again, I’ll try out another option. Directions to meeting place (“near 733”)were not very clear.

Good tour - unprepared guide
Kristin_B
, Mar 2022
Interesting tour. The guide has interesting stories mixed with history and folklore. There were two guides. One was on time and seemed to know about Gettysburg. The other guide arrived late, blamed the company for telling him the wrong location, and then took over the tour. The late guide said it was his first day back after a break with the company, then proceeded to ask the other guide if we were allowed to stand in the parking lot and other questions that should have been known before leading a group. Overall, good tour with interesting stops and stories but the tour could have been much better with a more prepared guide.
