The Ghosts of Gettysburg Candlelight Walking Tours began in 1994, was the first company in Gettysburg to present evening tours, and continues to be one of America’s premier ghost tours.
Based upon the documented, true stories collected for Mark Nesbitt’s best-selling, Ghosts of Gettysburg book series, they are the only tours in Gettysburg sanctioned by the author himself.
Tour groups have 3 options for walking tours.
1) Accompany our guides to walk our Baltimore Street Tour, which lasts about 1¼ hours and covers about ¾ of a mile. Guides visit and tell tales of the downtown area.
2) At the Lutheran Seminary, follow our guides and walk our Seminary Ridge Tour along the main Confederate battleline. The tour lasts about 1¼ hours and covers ¾ of a mile.
3) Follow our guides along Carlisle Street to the Gettysburg College Campus. The tour is a little more than a mile and lasts 1¾ hours.
For pre-arranged group tours, we normally assign two guides per 50 passenger bus, so group size is controlled. Parking for buses is directly in front of our building provided we know when they are arriving.
