Also, try to remember that the places these walks go to are the same ones they've been going to for years and years and much of the psychic energy that was in these places has either been exhausted or the tours have simply worn out their welcome. So the story has to be "spiced up" to make the sore feet worth it for the tourists.
The best walking tours, I found, are those you plan and do yourself with friends and fellow investigators. Just be careful in Gettysburg, its a good chance you'll find what you're looking for and you may not like it! :o

Or do things worth the writing.

Ghost Walks are tourist attractions in some older cities were people pay to take a walking tour through supposedly haunted areas and the guide tells them the history of the area and the stories.

There was this funny thing, though. As our last destination on the tour, the guide led us to the gates of the cemetery where the Lady in White resides. He began to re-tell the story of the woman often seen at the gates by passer-bys and so on. All the while, he was holding an ELF meter (a common investigative tool most of the group was familiar with) in one hand and with the sensor in the other, probing through the barred gate as he spoke. As with the sites before this, the ELF meter was silent and no ghostly happenings happened. We politely thanked the guide for the nice time and started away toward our respective hotels and whatever.
As we were walking away, the ELF meter began to "sing" as I call it and we all saw the locked gate move slightly under its own power...no wind, no one near these huge heavy cast iron gates. A noticeable chill was in the air and then vanished, along with the meter's insisting beeping. That would have been enough to have made the walk worth while, but the look on the guide's pure white, paled face was worth every cent of the tour price!
As I always say, take care when investigating the paranormal...learn the difference between when you have found something and when something has found you! :o

I agree the history is the best part for me, and it goes hand in hand with what you'll be hearing a lot of around here....research! You can't explain something you don't understand and the only way to understand is to study. When you're learning history not only are you adding to your knowledge just by reading (of however) but you're gaining insight from a person who studied this before making it easier on you to learn faster.
