Upfront our guide for the evening said this tour wasn't scary. The stories were entertaining and were based on truth, more like urban legends. The walk was enjoyable, Paul was entertaining, our group size was cozy, and we enjoyed ourselves very much. Maybe, they may...More

It was good family fun, includes history, nice walk, cute neighborhood with bars and restaurants. The storyteller dressed in character. Overall worth the money for us.

We had a great time on our tour! Samuel Chase was fantastic! Lots of history and spooky stories. Definitely entertaining and fun and great way to see some of D.C. at night.

We were looking forward to a good Ghost Walk in Washington DC. That is such an historical city there must be many great stories to tell and what we heard was just plain lame!

Had a great time!!! Only suggestion, get the tour guide a small microphone. The background noise from the traffic often drowns him out.

I just wasn't scary at all. It was 8:30 on a Saturday night but it felt like it was for kids. Not good storytelling; just boring. Wanted to like it.
