Not So Scary
Our guide was nice and fully into character which was fun.
The ghost tour isn’t what I’m used to for a ghost tour. It wasn’t scary and I lost my interest halfway through.
I think this would be a safe ghost tour to do if you are easily scared or have kids.

A moist paranormal experience
Jul 2021 • Friends
Wonderful tour of Capitol Hill. Guide was knowledgeable and witty. The bifecta of tour satisfaction. Had a little rain, but apparently that increases paranormal activity so it was fitting.
Thank you!!!

Save your money.

This was not what we thought it would be... Majority of the tour was spent in silence as we walked 3 miles. When we did stop, the description wasn’t scripted or rehearsed and just came off as stories she was making up on the spot. The guide kept walking us in the wrong direction, then turning us around. She had an older lady with her using her gps on her phone. The older woman did not interact with us and wouldn’t even look at anyone. Tbh, it was the creepiest/spookiest part of the entire tour. Save your money and time.

Terrible Tour in Georgetown
Mar 2021 • Couples
This was a terrible tour. Do not waste your money. There were 4 of us and we felt like we threw away $106. Our guide did not know what she was doing. She had a single sheet of notebook paper she kept referring to and still jumbled her stories. It was more history than scary or ghostly history. You walk a lot on this tour and you stop briefly at each stop with little information given. I would not recommend this tour to anyone!

Fun DC Ghost Tour; Great Guide
Dec 2020
Our tour guide, Anna Seurat, was very engaging, right from the start. She was dressed in old time clothes, and stayed in character the entire time. Everybody felt comfortable, and had fun. She was very funny, and led the group through the DC landmarks at night. Gorgeous to see. Anna was entertaining, and the tour progressed at a good pace. She was knowledgeable about her character, and ghost hauntings around the city. Excellent story teller! Was a fun addition to our DC trip, apart from visiting all of the landmarks. High recommend for the tour, and high recommend for Anna. Thanks for a fun night.

Going down as a pure ridiculous activity n amazing DC. TOTAL STUPID JOKE
Oct 2020 • Friends
Read reviews and thought it would be interesting. The guide knew next to zero about history outside his little script. He literally looked a rumpled just out of bed bored mess who about five of us ended up turning backs and shaking heads at our choice of an activity. The little scary scenarios are pure silly and stupid and more. Just don’t fall for this horrible tour.
