Just a quick review for Erin and the company. Our guide Erin is also a teacher, and her enthusiasm is contagious. The tour mixes haunted lore with the history of Georgetown. The tour finishes with the house and stairs from ‘The Exorcist.’ An awesome way...More

Enjoyed this tour. Good tour guide. Knew the history and kept us engaged. Biggest issue is that Georgetown is pretty active, so the quiet creepy Ghost Tour isn’t what you get. Would be scarier if it were a bit deserted. :) Overall, still good if...More

Good tour. No sightings, but lots of great stories. All outside. Chelsea was super knowledgeable about houses and told the story of many reportedly haunted houses with great enthusiasm. The tour moves at a pretty good pace and covers a lot of ground. My teen...More

The Ghost tour of Georgetown was overbooked. Too many people on walk to enjoy. The guide walks more that talks. Stopping here and there. More history than ghost tour.

We really enjoy the Ghosts of Georgetown tour. It is incredibly well done and well run. The only downside? Georgetown is so busy that it is hard to get a spooky feeling. We’ve done ghost tours in Harpers Ferry and a few other places that...More

The tour was a good way to walk around Georgetown but was not a good ghost tour! We did enjoy the history of the area and the beautiful homes.
