The 11 Best Ghost Tours in Gettysburg PA
Civil War Ghosts of Gettysburg Tour
Explore paranormal and historical stories about terror and mystery on one of the best ghost tours in Gettysburg with the Civil War Ghost of Gettysburg Tour .
The tour heads to the Brickhouse Inn Bed & Breakfast , where you will hear about the hauntings that occur from the battle that took place where the bed and breakfast now sits.
Other stops include the very haunted Arbor House Publishing. The site is located at the front lines of the Battle of Gettysburg, and the soldiers’ spirits who fought still remain on site. The tour also takes you to the Dobbin House Tavern, the oldest house in Gettysburg, built in 1776, has ghosts that linger in the hallways making their presence known to whoever visits the tavern.
The Civil War Ghosts Walking Tour has a lot of history, and you will hear the accounts of the many people who died in the war. The tour guides are fantastic, but I personally loved Justin and Clinton. They are engaging and knowledgeable, and they share photos and their own ghostly experiences.
Book the Extended Tour
Book the extended tour if you want more ghost stories and to use ghost hunting equipment like EVPs and dowsing rods.
If you are really into ghosts and want to spend the night, you can book a night at the Brickhouse Inn Bed & Breakfast. Then, spend the night with the spirits you just learned about on the tour!
Gettysburg is pretty busy, so it will be much louder in town if you go on the weekend. So please be sure to stand close to the guides to make sure you can hear the spooky stories.
What you need to know

Gettysburg: Ghost Hunt Tour with Ghost Hunting Equipment
Visit the most haunted locations in Gettysburg with the Gettysburg: Ghost Hunt Tour with Ghost Hunting Equipment .
The Gettysburg ghost hunt is a 50% ghost walk tour and 50% ghost hunt. It is the perfect tour for people who want to learn about battle history while trying to reach out to the ghosts who wander around Gettysburg.
Tour guide Marc is an amazing guide. He has a passion for the paranormal, which shows on this tour. He is a lot of fun and engaging while allowing you to explore as long as you want. You will use ghost-hunting gear and the guidance you need while exploring. For example, we heard disembodied voices that haunted the area.
The ghost-hunting part of the tour is located in a super spooky haunted place full of activity. It gets pretty dark and scary, so bring a flashlight with you! While many people get responses from spirits, and it might make you a believer, responses by ghosts are not guaranteed.
- There is a maximum of 22 guests on this tour.
- Book in advance so you don’t miss out because tours will book up fast!

Haunts and History Family Ghost Walking Tour in Gettysburg
If you want a family-friendly ghost tour in Gettysburg, I suggest taking the Haunts and History Family Ghost Walking Tour . The guided tour takes you to the city’s most haunted locations, where you will hear past and current paranormal activity tales.
The tour is full of spooky history mixed with in-depth personal stories told by really great knowledgeable guides. Tour guide Kendra made the tour very interesting as she told us about the haunted past and horrific details of the battle in 1863 that turned Gettysburg into a mass graveyard.
One of the stories you will hear on the haunts and history tour is the history behind the bullet chips on the old sycamore trees near the Farnsworth house.
- There is a maximum of 22 guests on this tour
- This tour is perfect for families.
Book here: Haunts and History Family Ghost Walking Tour in Gettysburg
Echoes of War All Ages Ghost Tour
If you are travelling with kids or are interested in an all-ages ghost tour in Gettysburg, I recommend the Echoes of War Ghost Tour . The tour takes you through the heart of downtown, where you will explore some of the most haunted sites in Gettysburg. You will hear the tales about the former citizens who fought in the Battle of Gettysburg.
The places you will visit on the tour include the David Wills House, Gettysburg College, The Union Hotel and the incredibly spooky and haunted Farnsworth House Inn, home to 16 ghosts!
The tour guides are fantastic storytellers while interacting with everyone on the tour. The spooky tales will capture your attention and fully immerse you during the entire tour. I took this tour with Major Finn and Cedric; both were wonderful tour guides who knew the history of Gettysburg well.
- There is a maximum of 25 guests.
- This is a family-friendly, all-ages ghost tour.
Book here: Echoes of War Ghost Tour
Ghosts of Gettysburg Ultimate Dead of Night Haunted Ghost Tour
The Ghosts of Gettysburg Ultimate, Dead of Night Haunted Ghost Tour , is by far one of the best ghost tours in Gettysburg. Tour guide Eric is what really makes this tour so great! He is such a fantastic storyteller and knows how to keep you captivated by all of his Gettysburg knowledge and historical tales.
The walking tour is perfect for people who prefer historic stories over the over-the-top haunted stories often told on other tours. You will still love this tour if you are into the spookier side of Gettysburg’s history.
Visit places like the Dobbin House Tavern, once used as a hospital. Other locations include the site where Abraham Lincoln (Baberaham Lincoln? Sorry, I can’t NOT make that joke anytime he is mentioned) gave the Gettysburg Address.
Other places you will pass by and learn about include the 1863 Inn of Gettysburg, the Rupp House History Centre, the Gettysburg Hotel and many more locations.
- There is a maximum of 20 guests.

After Dark Investigations – Evening Investigation
If you want nothing but a paranormal experience with a tiny bit of history, the Evening Investigation by After Dark Investigations is for you.
You will spend most of the evening using paranormal equipment, trying to reach out to the ghosts that roam the haunted locations of Gettysburg, including the very haunted Sachs Covered Bridge.
The evening investigation is by far one of the best ghost tours in Gettysburg, but it isn’t accessible as it is not a walking tour. You will need to have your own car for this investigation as you will follow the guides in a caravan.
They also have an evening investigation called Fright Nite for seasoned investigators and people who love working with equipment. It is the same length, but you will visit three locations.
The third location is a bonus site that has never been investigated on other tours. If you like the evening investigation, I recommend going on this tour next time!
- There is a maximum of 20 guests on this tour
- You need to have your own vehicle to go on this tour!

Not only is the tour group small, but you will also have an intimate experience investigating the ghosts that wander around Gettysburg. Plus, you will get to use all the paranormal equipment you’ve seen others use for years.
One of the things that makes this one of the best ghost tours in Gettysburg Pa is that every tour is unique to the group! If you want more guidance with speaking to the ghosts – the guides are there for you.
However, if you prefer to be left alone, the guides will give you enough space to talk and investigate the ghosts of Gettysburg that are right for you.
Most of the locations you will investigate are not the usual spots you will visit on other ghost tours around town. Plus, the tour guides are incredibly knowledgeable about each site, so you will feel like you know the complete history before reaching out to the ghosts that haunt the area.
Just to let you know, you will need to have your own vehicle to go to each location. So, don’t take this tour if you cannot get to each site on your own.

Gettysburg: Ghost-Themed Self-Guided Driving Tour
If you want a self-guided ghost tour, the Ghost-Themed Self-Guided Driving Tour is for you. The tour, which you will use via a mobile app, was developed by local guides and narrated by paranormal expert Mark Nesbitt .
The tour is valid forever, so you can go whenever and how often you want. But first, visit Gettysburg’s most haunted spots. This is one of the best Gettysburg ghost tours for people who wish to take their time at each location or don’t want to deal with ghost tour crowds.
The tour takes you to the Gettysburg Heritage Center, where you loop around the Gettysburg Battlefield. Then to Oak Ridge to hear about the Brigadier General who sent his men to death. The mobile app, which works offline, also includes animated videos where you can get into the spooky stories.
You will visit General Lee’s headquarters on Seminary Ridge, where you will hear about a soldier who was buried alive. Another location is the site where the ghost of John Reynold is often spotted.
The stories are well-narrated, and informative and draw you in. Other sites you will visit include Eisenhower Farm, where doors are slammed, and you can hear footsteps. Plus, other places I haven’t mentioned, including Devil’s Den.
If you are an introvert or want to take your time, this tour is the one I recommend!
- Only one tour booking is required per group.
- The tour is self-guided, so it is just you and your friends!

The Best Ghost Tours in Gettysburg – Know Before You Go
While Gettysburg is super haunted, full of tons of history and one of the best cities in the US to visit if you love dark history – it is a bustling city.
Most of the haunted locations you will stop at during your ghost tour will be full of people taking other ghost tours, tourists and Gettysburg residents. Plus, many of the haunted sites are located next to a busy and loud road.
Be prepared to stand close to your guide to be able to hear all of the spooky tales, or go on a tour during the week as it will be less busy.
Even though the tours will be near noisy or busy places, they are worth it if you love ghost tours!
Some of the Gettysburg ghost tours I listed do require a vehicle of your own! I have made notes in the “What You Need to Know” tabs for these tours.
