For any fan of history, this is essential. It was a bit light on the actual ghosts, but historical details and tales of the sordid past of Washington D.C. abound.
My wife and I have been on Haunted Tours in Charleston, Boston, Salem (MA), Savannah, etc…. This was by far, the worst “Haunted Tour” we’ve experienced. When we go on these tours we want to hear about the dirty, grimy, historically accurate stories that you don’t read in history books. Why do ‘they’ still roam the halls at night, wailing and howling… But we didn’t really get that on this tour. Yeah, we too, got Christopher (dressed as Samuel Chase) as a guide. He got his “facts” mixed up at certain times and would laugh it off. His stories were much more history based than having to do with hauntings, ghost/apparition sightings, and the like. His delivery of his stories was w/o rhythm, so his lead to the “punch line”/oooh-ahh scary ‘moment’ was about as enthralling as a mouse fart in church. And it really took too long to get to the punch line. By the second or third stop on the tour, my wife told me she’d stop listening to him already. If you want slow-paced history tour where you continually get asked if you know “this historical figure or that historical figure”. This is it. We love to tip, but we tipped nothing, nor did said good-bye to Christopher. To boot, he had some girls following him around all night with a microphone, recording him. They were annoying and distracting. I would not recommend this tour. -Charlotte, NC Another good point by a poster below, our guide did give his political opinion throughout and his grand finale was laced with some sort of anti-GOP rant… Unnecessary.
