Justice Samuel Chase aka “bacon face” and affectionately named “Mr. Bacon” (by my 10 year old during the tour) was absolutely amazing! He is so knowledgeable and very funny. We learned so much about the history of the Hill told through spooky stories. The tour was conversational which I really loved. Absolutely will be a highlight of our vacation. We are almost certain Sam Chase was an actual ghost. He waited with us for our Uber and as we pulled away it seemed he completely disappeared!!

Our guide Jillian was excellent. She was extremely knowledgeable and told fun interesting stories. Loved to hear the history along with the hauntings. The Capitol and Supreme Court are beautiful at night and it didn’t hurt that there was a full moon!

My son and I very much enjoyed the stories on the Scary DC walk. The speaker was very engaging with lots of details and interesting information! I do wish we had been able to venture on to the Capitol grounds but we were a week early from the removal of the barricades. This was a fun tour with some cool stories!
