Karima was a great storyteller and did a wonderful job mixing history, haunting stories, and laughter into her tour. The stories were not very scary, but the history was interesting. My husband and I had a great time.

I did the Old Town Alexandria the weekend before Halloween with a group of friends. There was one guy leading the tour in costume who's name I can't recall (sorry) and Jared was also there. I wish I remembered the stories a little better, but uh, I guess that's the nature of it being more of a pub tour. Anyway, they did a good job keeping the group moving along from bar to bar and telling the stories outside as we were passing the buildings, so it was a little spooky and we could take some pictures. Then go inside to warm up and have a drink and get to know each other. I also got introduced to a new favorite pumpkin beer. Maybe just wish we heard a few more stories or that the cost was a little less, but otherwise I really liked the tour. And Jared was very nice too!

My husband and I took the Capital Pub Crawl with Kelvin of Nightly Spirits and had a great time! It's a walking tour that stops at 4 different bars, the White House, and a couple other statues/buildings. The stories aren't particularly scary but there is a good bit of interesting historical information. Overall, the tour was a lot of fun but I think it should be mentioned that the bars visited are on the more expensive side. Obviously it's up to you what you want to drink (or not) but just be aware that the night could get pricey!

My boyfriend and I went on the Whitehouse Haunted Pub Crawl with Kelvin and it was amazing. Not only did Kelvin take us to some really neat bars that we would have never found on our own - down winding staircases, around corners and in basements of hotels, but he was also excellent company. He told ghost stories and fun political insider facts. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour to anyone coming to DC whether it is your first trip or your 10th trip. It was a great way to see the whitehouse and surrounding area in a different light.

We did the tour around the Capitol Hill area and had a great time. The mix of history and ghost stories was perfect, as well as a tour of the dive bars in that area. Our guide, Kelvin, was fantastic and certainly made the experience. I would recommend it.
