My most recent experience of the Farnsworth House Mature Tour was so bad it was almost comical. I went on the tour Saturday, June 24 at 11 PM. It started in the Farnsworth House basement and after 45 minutes of PG-13 19th century jokes (most...More

My daughter and I did the ghost tour of the cellar along with the ghost walk. Our guide Ashley was very informative and sweet. We loved the stories she told. We got to use night vision, EMF detectors along with a few other devices. I...More

We took several of the "Ghost Walks" in Gettysburg and they are all disappointing if you want to be scared or see a ghost. The tours are somewhat informative while giving you some access to historic sights. This was the best we took. Ninety minutes...More

Most of what was told, I had heard on the Battlefield tour. There was very little talk about Ghosts. Look at the reviews then decide for your self. There are plenty other Ghost tours, check out their reviews. This tour was only $10.00 that's probably...More
