Owner description: Nightly Spirits Historic Haunted Pub Tours take a look at some of the most haunted places in D.C. and Old Town Alexandria, while allowing time to really enjoy the "spirits" along the way. Our tours stop at 3-4 different famous pubs/bars and give you a look into their haunted and historic past. Come try us out, this isn't your ordinary ghost tour and we are confident that you will love our costumed tour guides. All of our tours depart at 8:30 PM from locations near the White House and Old Town Alexandria.

I'm a DC resident, but decided to try out this tour. Loved the history and entertainment. Aislinn did a great job hosting the tour, sharing the stories of each building and answering out questions. This also gave me a chance to try out a few new bars--loved them! The bartenders were super friendly to our group.

We went on a Saturday night and Steve was our guide. It was super corny and not remotely scary. However the pub stops were decent and we met some great people on the tour. Not a bad way to get a little lay of the land when you first get to DC. And a nice night view of the White House.

We absolutely LOVED this tour! Karima Hurt was an amazing tour guide who mixed a perfect blend of humor and a depth of historical knowledge... we laughed hysterically throughout the entire 2+ hours.
On the tour we visited 4 bars and walked around by the White House while Karima gave us details of all the sordid things that have happened in DC. I would recommend this tour and tour guide to anyone visiting the DC area.

Did this with friends. We've been on many walking ghost/pub tours, and we were disappointed with this one.
The guide (can't remember her name... karina??) was wonderful. She was so nice and funny and personable. That being said, it was not at all 'haunted' she had very few stories. None of them were really very ghost-ish. The 'pubs ' were expensive bars. Nice, yes, and goid drinks. But fancier than we were expecting. The area is nice, and we had a fun night, but know that you're pretty much going to 3 bars and just having a fun person escort you and chat with you.
