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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Scary DC tour! It was a cold night, but our tour guide, Paul, was very good. We learned about all sorts of D.C. Stories - with a twist 👻. Highly recommend

A big thanks to our guide, the ghost of Samuel Chase, for the spooky tour of Capitol Hill. We were thoroughly entertained. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to learn about some of the darker history of our nation's capital.

We booked a private tour with Scary DC and we all had a great time. "Samuel Chase" was for sure entertaining. The ghost references were not exactly what we had been expecting; however it was still a fun evening. The view of the Capitol Building...More

Not spooky at all and definitely worth the price. Fun, informative and an easy first date idea or an after dinner walk.
