DJ was our guide! He was so entertaining yet knowledgeable as well. The tour was so interesting. We had gone to monuments and museums during the day. On this tour, we went to places we had never even known about! If you get DJ as your guide, you will have a really great experience! Spooky and so much fun!

The tour was amazing, even with the rain we had. It was a lot of spooky fun tied to our nations history. (The full moon certainly helped haha) Our guide Nina was excellent in telling the stories and kept it entertaining throughout. She answered any questions, added humor where appropriate, and really delivered on the haunted part of the evening. Definitely something that anyone should do while in the city!

About This Deal

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Eisenhower Executive Office Building, 1650 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington DC, DC 20504-0002

Harry Truman called it America's greatest monstrosity. Mark Twain referred to it as the ugliest building in America. Regardless, it is considered the most haunted office building in America, and on this tour you will get to find out why!

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Decatur House, 748 Jackson Pl NW, Washington DC, DC 20006-4912

The home of Stephen Decatur. During his time, he was one of the nation’s most celebrated naval commanders. Many of his political friends were certain that Stephen Decatur would become president. And, who knows, maybe he could have been. But James Barron kind of ruined those chances, and you're here to find out how!

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Lafayette Square, 16th St & Pennsylvania Ave Northwest, Washington DC, DC 20006

Where trees, paths, and statues now lay, these grounds used to house a graveyard, a racetrack, a zoo, and an apple orchard. Some even speculate that a slave market was held here. You can only imagine the wealth of history and hauntings that exist in the illustrious Lafayette Square, but thanks to this tour your imagination won't be all you have!

Duration: 20 minutes
