Good haunted Washington DC tour
, Jun 2021
Our guide dressed up in period costume and had many stories of the haunts around Washington DC. He was good at leading our group of about 15 people and the people that arrived late after he had concluded the tour and turned most of us loose he continued the tour for the late persons giving them the stories that they missed. I consider that going above the Call of Duty.
Great historical fun

Wish we could have gone into or closer to the places the guide talked about; Not the company's fault at all. It could have been longer and they could have taken us to alternative haunted places that were more accessible. All in all a great time with lots of history explained.
Tour guide a no show
, May 2021
The tour guide completely no showed on us....leaving 12 people out in a drizzly rain. No communication whatsoever. I had attempted to confirm the tour hours earlier when the rain began but nothing. Others had made calls earlier as well. Extremely disappointing....not because the tour was cancelled but because of zero attempt to inform us it was cancelled.
Spooky Yikes.

Guide was very sweet and it was a gorgeous evening, but unfortunately she had no idea how to navigate the tour (pulled out her phone the whole time to get around) and had a very poorly developed was comically terrible, but equally comical and terrible?
It was a great time!

Anna was great! She’s really committed to her role! She was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and I learned a lot. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family!
Night Time Event Well Spent

Samuel Chase did an incredible job describing the history of DC, and provided some of the most well researched and factual scary stories that took place there. I could have listened for another 10-12 hours!
"Daughter of Mary Surratt : great tour guide
, Aug 2020
Our haunted tour was guided by the daughter of Mary Surratt , and was extremely entertaining. She brought the tour to life and never broke character. We had a fabulous time learning the stories of the Capitol ghosts. I would do it again tomorrow.

Guide was knowledgeable and passionate about sharing knowledge. He was dressed as Samuel Chase. Did tend to ramble on without good content.

A lot of fun
