Ghosts and History - Ingeborg was a fantastic guide. I love how she delved into the history of Georgetown to explain the city’s ghosts. I particularly enjoyed that. We ended the tour with the Exorcist steps and she gave an excellent synopsis of the “true” story. We explored beautiful Georgetown for 1.5 hours. I highly recommend this tour.

Spooky and Fun Tour - We had Ingeborg as our tour guide, and as a DC native, she had some great insights about Georgetown. She was very thoughtful about people on the tour who were slower and who were hard of hearing. She made sure that everyone felt included and answered everyone's questions. She also shared some pictures with us from previous tours.

Poor - I was expecting to hear more ghost stories as georgetown is a old place I'm sure we have a good range of spookie stories and a deeper research in stories is needed

An OVERPRICED and Boring Tour! - I’m giving this a 1 star because of the stories. The guide was nice and funny. But the breath and depth of the script presented eas really pathetic. I’m sorry but when you want to give a tour about ghosts , graveyards, and legends you want to make it believable and most importantly entertaining The entire tour the tour guide , ELI was very friendly however he was not very entertaining or spooky. It was boring. … And honestly a waste of money I feel like. I mean when I walk a ghost tour one would think I might be scared! However He jokes we’re not very funny either. He made a hard pass on trying to make people laugh but in reality he just looked stupid lol. His jokes about how much he had to walk, or how tired he was because he had to take care of his kids, or how how old he was that he couldn’t operate a Bose system, these ….where all just a thick way to sidestep his inability to present any type of frightening and entertaining evening haha. Sorry Eli. I hope you really get a chance to flex your ability because that wasn’t cutting it.
