Great Experience!
Patricia_J, May 2023
We had a great time with MarC. He told us lots of stories of hauntings in houses surrounding the area we walked in. We went down to an area known to be active, and we used all kinds of equipment. Marc was very helpful and very knowledgeable. Highly recommended. Was a great time even though I didn’t see a ghost. Lol.

"Highly recommended" Thank you for another FIVE STAR REVIEW.

Marc was excellent and a great story teller. It was a great night! We had a lot of fun! The ghost equipment was super cool!
Response from Host, May 2023
It was super cool! having you as a guest. Thank you for another FIVE STAR REVIEW.
Note the mist in the lower left corner of the last photo. The dousing rods created a tingling sensation in my arms.
June_W, May 2023
Marc, (with a "c") was an excellent guide and emphasized the importance of being respectful to the energies, and not to provoke them. They were very curious and responded actively (through the dousing rods), to our questions. This is for REAL! A very pleasant experience with several entities that were not threatening or scary. You can actually feel their presence and the number of orbs and the mist proved that they were all around us. I have a totally new perspective of the paranormal and will always remember this tour.
Response from Host, May 2023
We are honored to have provided you with such a unique experience. Thank you for another FIVE STAR REVIEW.
Great Ghost Tour Experience
Alison_F, May 2023
Marc was a great tour guide. Even though it was a crazy night with outside noise he was really knowledgeable. I could have listened to his stories all night. We were the last ones there. We were able to talk to several spirits through the rods and found the whole experience fascinating. I would definitely do it again. Thank you.
Response from Host, May 2023
Thank you, Alison, for another FIVE STAR REVIEW.
A bit of a disappointment
RoseMarie_G, May 2023
Didn't get much from the tour. Would have enjoyed covering a larger area and more stories of actual sightings. I felt we only covered a very small area and I had a hard time believing any of the electronic equipment was anything but theatrics.
Response from Host, May 2023
We're sorry you didn't feel you experienced our usual FIVE STAR adventure.
Marc did a great job...
Dennis_B, May 2023
Marc did a great job telling about the history of Gettysburg and related the stories about ghostsl. I especially like the story of the trees.

Great shared experience
Marguerite_H, Nov 2022
Got a great picture of what could be a ghost. It was a fun shared experience. It was a very cold clear night with a starry sky. That added to the ghost hunting fun. I just wish the dories were brief & more reverse.
Marc was the BEST!
Kelsey_J, Nov 2022
Marc was fantastic! So knowledgeable and made the whole experience fun. We got to communicate with one of the spirits that he had already formed a relationship with and let us go into the whole process open minded. Also the stories that were shared were a great mix of paranormal and history related that kept us all on our toes. Me and my husband talked about it the whole next day and recommended my parents try the tour as well!

Informative and fun
Stephanie_R, Oct 2022
This was a fun tour to go on, a lot of history with ghost stories and legends mixed in. Marc was super knowledgeable, helpful and funny. We had a medium to large group. You do the walking tour and get to ghost hunt afterwards. It sounded like a lot of guests had excellent luck! The weather was kind to us but I should've dressed a little warmer, my hands got too cold to continue investigating (but we also didn't have much luck, YMMV). You will also need a camera that takes low light photos - the night mode on Android's Galaxy is fine, but I had to hold my breath for over 10s(it was cold enough for breath to appear in photos) because of the aperture setting which is 5s, and it killed my battery pretty quick. Manage your expectations when you go because if you have a particularly rowdy or chatty group like ours was, your EVPs may be contaminated. There is plenty of other equipment to use however. Marc was very forthcoming about that so we knew what to expect. It was a wonderful experience. We will bring our kids when they're old enough. Thanks!

Marc was a great tour guide. The meeting place was within walking distance from where I was staying, so that was very convenient. Marc was on time for the tour.

Great Tour Guided by Marc
Sierra_B, Oct 2022
Our tour was made up of about 15 people. Our tour guide Marc was very fun and informative. He was very interactive with our group and joked around as we went. He told us some great stories before taking us to use some ghost detection devices. After showing us how to use them, he left us wonder by ourselves for awhile before asking if anyone us made contact. After that he told us some stories about experiences in that area. Definitely a lot of fun. Not only did he guide us and share some great stories and experiences, he also stayed with our group almost an hour past the supposed time. Highly recommend this tour!
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Thank you, Sierra, for another FIVE STAR REVIEW.
Great time

"Great time" Thank you, Jack, for yet another FIVE STAR REVIEW!
Fun, informative and unknown
Dennis_M, Oct 2022
My wife and I had a great time with Marc and I believe the lady that was with us as well is named Teresa. We enjoyed the time walking and hearing about the history of the area. My wife is a little sensitive, so she was able to feel more than the average person. For me this was a new experience. There is definitely a presence here in Gettysburg. There was a trickster in the area that of course was playing games. Unfortunately he played games with my wife causing us to leave a little bit earlier than expected. Marc made us feel safe as he and the others walked us out to a safer area. This being said, I personally would recommend you experience this tour out of all the tours here.

Marc was a really fun and knowledgeable guide. Our tour was on a slightly rainy night but we still had an amazing time
Somewhat boring
Ashley_R, Oct 2022
Just did a circle with a few stories told. Tour guide kind of seemed, all over the place with the stories he did tell. Walked back by the school and played with a few pieces of equipment on our own for half hour, and that’s it. Kind of a waste of time and money honestly.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
LOOK PAST THE FRAUDULENT REVIEWS that started October 7, 2022. Somebody is trying to hurt our business.
Unique very fun experience

We as a group of friends wanted more. To see, hear, and feel.
Jodi_B, Sep 2022
I took a picture and that's part of the house was all roof, but as you can see there is a figure in what it looks like window of the roof. I then used a friend's phone and nothing showed up on his phone. This is awesome.
Response from Host, Oct 2022

A medium’s stamp of approval
Melissa_H, Aug 2022
If you are looking for a tour without needless creepies but good ol fashion paranormal investigation, this is for you. Five stars for the interactivity. Let me start by saying our little group of three friends was lucky enough to land a tour with Marc (Marc with a C 😏). He was such an enthusiastic guide, and genuinely committed to giving each guest a good experience. He really shined during the investigative half of the tour, making sure to take time to allow personal interaction and guidance with each guest on the tour, but also to allow ample space for individual experience. Everyone got to use the tools provided to search out spirits and conduct an investigation and facilitate a yes/no conversation. As a spirit medium myself I interact with spirits on the daily, and I was impressed with the activity and the amount of evidence able to be collected on location. It’s always fun when independent experiences can corroborate each other. My friends were finally able to have their own conversations with spirits, which were validated by others. It was such a great time, in fact, that we returned on our own with another friend the next night and ran into Marc with another tour. He made sure to stay after and check in with us. It was a great conversation. We will definitely be back with other friends.
