Jim was a great tour guide. He made sure the group was together before starting his stories. I went with my grandparents who do not walk as fast. He kept this us mind and made sure everyone got to each stop before speaking. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants an inclusive tour to hear all about the spooks and haunts of Gettysburg!

We went on the ghost tour with Jim (Séamus) on the 28th Dec 2021 and had a wonderful time! He was a great storyteller and made the sights on Baltimore Street come alive. Great way to spend an evening. Highly recommend.
