Haunted DC Walking Tour on Capitol Hill
From US$20.00
Take a spooky stroll through Washington DC on this guided, 90-minute walking ghost tour. Visit one of the most haunted buildings in the world — the United States Capitol Building, including the Supreme Court Building and the Library of Congress. Hear the stories of feuding ghosts of past lawmakers, haunted souls surrounding the Trial of the Lincoln Assassination Conspirators, the phantoms of past presidents and the curse that surrounds everything on Capitol Hill. It’s a fascinating, spine-tingling adventure.
What to Expect

Your tour begins at 8:30pm outside the Starbucks on Capitol Hill.

Have you heard the stories about the drunken phantasm, the judgmental visitant or the presidential phantom? You’ll learn these and more on a 90-minute walking tour of DC’s Capitol Hill. Meet the ghost of America’s sixth president John Quincy Adams, mingle with the spirit of James Madison, and get to know the phantom of William Howard Taft.

Explore haunted locations in and around the Capitol building with your expert guide, and be prepared for a shock or two as you go.

Enjoy frightfully good fun while delving into the political history of Washington DC.

Spooky, historical, & fun

We went on this tour and our guide Paul was funny and informative. This tour was recommended and I would recommend it to others. Great night for a little haunted tour as it was a wet rainy night to hear the spooky stories of DC

Spooky fun!

A big thanks to our guide, the ghost of Samuel Chase, for the spooky tour of Capitol Hill. We were thoroughly entertained. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to learn about some of the darker history of our nation's capital.
