The weather was perfect! The docent, Colin, was a great storyteller. We walked more than we talked. I would have liked a few more stories but the ones he told were interesting and fun. It was a great way to spend an evening among the...continued

Professor Andrew was a great guide. He acted just weird enough to give credence to the things he told us about the area and its denizens, past and present.

Our guide was knowledgeable, personable and presented things informatively and with charisma. The walk was easy. Some of the stories a bit long. It was a busy night for folks on the street, but the guide kept us all engaged and handled the...continued

The tour was entertaining, but not much history or facts. A little too corny for my cynical tastes. I would have liked more history and talking and less magic tricks and gimmicks. I'm thinking it would have been better for families - it seemed...continued

Adding inside houses visits and visiting GT University main building would make this tour great.

Tour guide was a talented presenter who engaged the group and made sure noone got lost. He had good stories and told them very effectively but more ghost tales would have been better. A couple were about crimes, not ghosts.One story was told 1/2...continued

Our guide Landon was a pretty good story teller and generally kept everyone's attention despite the usual sidewalk distractions. Fun way to learn the history of some of the beautiful houses in Georgetown. Probably too boring for kids or...continued

This was a pleasant tour, with some live-action reactions thrown in. The only thing was that they made me question the truth behind some of the stories.

A lovely family evening for my son and me. The tour guide was very entertaining and even included some magic tricks. I've been inspired to research some of the local history further. I particularly enjoyed discovering the Mt. Zion cemetery on Q...continued

Took three friends, one from DC and two from out of town and we had a good time. Our tour guide, Landon, was a great combination of storyteller, historian and kidder. He mixed well with the young kids in the group, as well as the adults. We had...continued

It was a great spooky, history tour of Georgetown. Andrew, our tour leader, was a little strange at first but he grows on you. His storytelling was captivating and entertaining. It was a fun, 2 hour learning experience. I would recommend it for...continued

It was very fun to walk around Gerogetown and learn some history. I would have enjoyed a few more ghost stories.

The guide team was entertaining and knowledgeable. I actually learned some things I didn't know about DC despite being a long-time resident. The price was low enough to go along with the stories and just enjoy the short walk around the Georgetown...continued

It was spooky and wonderful! Our guide, Andrew Mysterious, led us through rainy, cobblestone sidewalks, spinning scary tales of history as we went. We're still puzzling over his magic tricks - they couldn't really be magic. Or could they?
This is...continued
