Full description

Be curious and learn about the haunted history of Gettysburg. This 1-hour haunted ghost tour is for all who wish to see Gettysburg through a unique lens.  Meet your guide and head to the Farnsworth House. Now a bed and breakfast, it was once the territory of Confederate snipers during the Battle of Gettysburg. As one of the town’s most haunted places, the Confederate soldiers have long since passed, but some continue to feel their presence.  Head to the now-closed Hall of Presidents. This former wax museum has a deep-rooted history of paranormal activity. The Hall was filled with wax figures of every American President and First Lady, darkly built on a former Civil War burial ground. Learn about the building's interesting history. The final destination of this tour is the beautiful Gettysburg Hotel which is haunted by two spirits, man and woman, from wartime. They share a mysterious and deep bond, learn their secret known by only a small few.

Felicia was wonderful! Her town walkabout was quite entertaining and definitely informative. Being a history teacher, she was spot on with her facts due to a LOT of research. She also works part time with the Gettysburg Historical Society transcribing letters from soldiers and townspeople. This is just one way that she gets first-hand knowledge for her presentation. I would definitely recommend the company that she works for...Civil War Ghozt Tour, extended tour...1.5 hours of facts and stories, both past and present.

First off, the guide we had was lively and entertaining. My reasoning for giving this 4 stars and not 5 is because the description of the outing is a little misleading. I was under the impression it would be a walk through more historical sites and the sharing of some famous or documented ghosts that are said to frequent those spots. It was more like sharing personal experiences at a few spots in the center of town. If you need something entertaining to do for an hour or so one evening, this would be a good way to spend it. If however, you are more like me and more enjoy concrete history and documentation, this may not be the outing for you.

An enjoyable experience that spanned several blocks of the town. The guides use of a mic helped as our group was rather large. I was not well oriented to the locations of some of the major landmarks so the lack of reference points made it a bit challenging to figure out how some of the stories fit together but the next day at the visitors center the pieces came together and the stories told in the tour came to life in a different way. Be mindful that you are outside on the sidewalks of the main road so it can be loud and traffic can be busy - on joker revved his engine purposely when he drove by and our guide worked it into his narrative which made it less of a bother. All in all good entertainment and fun way to integrate the history of the area.
