Stuart was our guide and the tour was nice and knowledgeable. The length of the tour was perfect for older kids after a long day of sight seeing too

Fun ghost tour with a side of history.
Fun ghost tour with a side of a history lesson. John, or guide, was funny and well informed. Several blocks were closed due to a diplomat in town. However, John managed to provide us with a great alternate route full of details about the buildings and their spirits! My kids loved it.

Awesome
Our tour guide, John, was wonderful. He was so animated and informative. I especially loved how he included our 7 year old and let her carry the spectrometer. She keeps talking about DC the demon cat.

The tour was very informative as a history lesson, but we did not encounter any ghosts that night. A ghost encounter would have
The tour was a very informative history lesson. It would have been better if we were able to encounter a ghost or two. We enjoyed the tour nonetheless

Potential, but a total flop
Jul 2021 • Friends
This could have been fun- we were excited about hearing ghost stories and seeing more of DC our first night here. A tour like this requires a certain personality to make it engaging and suspenseful. Sadly, our tour guide, while knowledgeable, didn’t have the personality to pull this off. He didn’t engage with any of the people on the tour and his stories were repetitive and disjointed. As a result, it was difficult to stay interested. We found ourselves googling information about the sites and people we were at, rather than struggling to make sense of the stories told, or how they related to ghosts. We didn’t feel comfortable asking him questions because he avoided eye contact and when someone did ask a question about recent events at a site we were at, he was either misinformed or dismissive. We ended up leaving early and exploring the area on our own (after 55 minutes, he was half way through Lafayette Square and we couldn’t take anymore). The view of the White House at night was the highlight. But we didn’t need to pay the tour fee to see it. The Secret Service agent we asked a question to at the gates was friendlier, more informative, and more personable.

Maybe arrive earlier than 15 minutes
Jul 2021 • Family
I can't actually review the tour because I couldn't find the location. Paid for an Uber from my hotel to the exact address given on the directions and arrived at 7:44. We walked around as much of the treasury building as possible. Didn't see a group or a guide with a lantern. Messaged the organizer who offered joining the 10pm tour but by that time it had been raining for over an hour and I was back at my hotel.

Now I wish we would have arrived earlier than the recommended 15 minutes. I guess I'll try again next time I'm in DC.

Uninspired.

This was one of the worst ghost tours I've ever been on. I've done many and this was the least informative, least fun and covered a very small area. I hope that another one becomes available, because a real DC ghost tour would be amazing.

Charles was great! Very thorough, detailed and believable stories with historical information included. I loved it! It was an easy stroll around the park on a nice evening. Well done and not too long.
