“Nightly Spirits Review”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

We had a fantastic time on the White House Ghost Tour. Our tour guide Karima was hilarious and never made us feel rushed at any of the bars even though we had a group of 17 people! While I've heard more spooky ghost stories before, the ones on this tour while not as scary really showcased the history of historic Washington that you don't really hear about anymore.

The various bars while a bit pricy (averaging about 7 for a beer, 10 for a cocktail, and 12 for a glass of wine) were great spots with unique history and let's be clear, drinking in DC is expensive to begin with unless you're a local and go off the beaten path. We actually had such a great time at one of the bars that we ventured back the next day to have dinner.

Overall it was a great time. Nightly Spirits does a great job providing fun tour guides that go the extra mile to make sure everyone has a good time and gave everyone a coozie which was a nice touch. At the end of the tour she even recommended places to go if we wanted to continue drinking and pointed out the nearest metro stations and offered to help coordinate a lyft for free!

“Great Time!”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

We did the White House Tour and we had such a great time! We had Karima as our tour guide and she was amazing! She told great stories and fun facts and made it so fun to listen to her! The bars we went to were really cool and also had so much history behind it.
I would definitely do it again and will recommend it to anyone visiting the area!

“Not Worth the Money”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

This cost us $65 for the two of us and it was not worth it. It was definitely not your typical "pub crawl" as we we went to many 'classy' bars where we didn't fit in and the other customers just kind of stared at us like we shouldn't be there. ($16 for a drink!!) We only went to three bars and didn't really hear great ghost stories. I felt like the tour guide didn't believe a word she was saying "they say this" or "people say they've heard that." It would have been a better experience if she had bought into and told the stories like she saw them herself. There was nothing spooky or scary about the stories. We spent a lot of time in various parks and not in haunted buildings at all. We actually left when we got to the last bar. We had a way better tour earlier in the day that was free--this one was not worth it.

“AMAZING”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

Me and my boyfriend took the White House tour with another couple for my boyfriend's birthday. Karima was our tour guide and she did an excellent job recreating the stories. Both my boyfriend and his friend are history majors and so they really enjoyed the history behind each of the stories. Karima was so knowledgeable about each story she told and even asked quiz questions. She really took the time to get to know the group and add little tid bits of information that she thought we might find interesting. Even for me (not a history major), I found everything FASCINATING and would definitely do it again. We are from DC and had no idea what a great activity Nightly Spirits had going on just around the corner from us. Definitely recommend to anyone looking to do something FUN and DIFFERENT than just your average happy hour!!
