Tormented & Lost Souls Tour **

Ages 16 & Up – No Exceptions Due to Content-

NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART and most definitely an “adult” themed tour! Gettysburg has often been called the most Haunted town in America. There are many ways people and places can become haunted. Your guide will explore this theme with you, with no holds barred, in bone chilling, blood curdling detail, with nothing left to the imagination, as you walk through the village of Gettysburg. Other topics could include the Paranormal experience, Victorian death, Mourning, and burial practices, (or the lack of it), as well as the more “intimate” secrets/lives of the period and its consequences. By the conclusion of the tour, your guide should have you convinced that Gettysburg has definitely earned its moniker. The tour also includes a visit to the often-investigated cellar. Subject matter may or may not include all topics, or areas and can vary according to the storyteller.
