Not Worth It
Jul 2021
The way the tour works is: the tour guide finds a spot, tells a story, then we go to a bar, order a drink, we leave the bar, she finds another spot, tells another story, and so on. The caveat here is that the tour guide wasn't well equipped with accurate information and a cocktail at each bar costs a minimum of $14. (Your Nightly Spirits ticket does not pay for any drink)

We started the tour at what was supposed to be the first bar, The Occidental, but the bar was closed because of covid. It seems odd to tell people to meet outside a bar that is closed, one that they knew had been closed for months.

In total, went to 4 bars -- The Hamilton, Old Ebbitt Grill, The Willard's Intercontinental, and some hotel bar (which apparently was the replacement for the Occidental, and it was chosen because someone at Nightly Spirits likes/is dating their bartender)

The tour guide pointed out a couple of supposed places of ghost sightings (2 along Lafayette park, one outside the Willard, and one other I can't remember). There were a number of anecdotes or facts she shared on the tour that were either wrong, an exaggeration, or she looked up on her phone as we were walking. At a couple of points, the guests of the tour knew more about the stories than she did.

I wouldn't do it again, and I would not recommend it to anyone.

Great tour! So much fun! Stephen was a wonderful tour guide. Note: I'm not a person that really believes in ghosts. It was just a new and fun way to explore the town.

Amazing haunted pub crawl in DC
Apr 2021 • Couples
The haunted pub crawl in DC was easily one of the major highlights of our trip! We learned a lot of cool history and information that we wouldn’t have otherwise, but the best part was our guide! Katie (Captain Kirk) clearly has a passion for sharing these stories and she brought a level of enthusiasm and humor to the experience that is unmatched. We will definitely be touring again if we’re back in DC!

Great way to round out our vacation!
Feb 2020 • Couples
My husband and I did this tour on our last night here in DC and Katie aka Captain Kirk was energetic and captivating in all her story telling. We were in a group of 8 and it was the perfect group size. She was sure to interject with everyone. Lots of fun stories, and a look into the not-so-glorious history of Washington, DC. Would definitely recommend as a date night, or a night out with friends.

Spooky fun in DC

We booked a private tour for 10 of us to do the pub tour for a birthday party. Lindsay was a fantastic guide and very knowledgeable and professional. She told us many great stories and was great as we hung out at the bars. We keep talking about how much fun we all had. A great way to spend a night in DC! Highly recommend!

Dec 2019 • Couples
My fiancé and I had an incredible time. It ended up being just us two plus our guide on the tour which I was worried wouldn’t be as fun as a large group but our guide did an amazing job and we had the best time; he was very knowledgeable about DC and able to answer all of our random questions. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone and hopefully go on another one the next time we’re in DC. I believe our guides name was Andrew.

Great Guide and Great Drinks
We have been on ghost tours before, but the added benefit of a pub crawl sounded too fun to pass up! There was just enough time allotted at each stop for one drink, but we did go on a Saturday night so each pub/bar was pretty packed. Our tour guide, I believe it was Corinna, was knowledgable and fun, playing off of the group we were with. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone interested in ghostly history in DC with the bonus of a cocktail!
