After a long day of touring D.C. on foot I questioned my booking an evening pub walking tour. But our "Pirate" guide Rene immediately captured our attention with her smart, funny and engaging story telling. Perhaps we didn't engage in the liquid spirits as others might, our tired feet weren't really into standing in crowded bars, but Rene happily guided... More

I have been on several haunted pub tours on the East Coast. I'm not sure if they were affiliated with Nightly Spirits, but they were fantastic. This tour in DC was awful. Our guides were simply terrible. The one guide, Trevor, was in training. Thankfully the other guide stopped letting him chime in. He was painfully uncomfortable in his role.... More

Karima was our tour guide and she was amazing. Very funny and made sure everyone had a good time. Very patient with the group & really flexible with the rain. Her story telling is awesome and the stories great not just a list facts.

Our guide was Karima and she was very funny and informative. She has tons of experience with DC and knows her stuff. But beware: she will quiz the group on presidents! Bone up before you go. ;) We visited four bars and had the opportunity to get a drink in each one. We also walked to the White House and... More

We found this via groupon. This was a great way for us to get a feel for local folklore and urban legends. Our tour guide Karima Hurt was exceptional and really showed passion for her job. Will definitely be looking into booking a tour through nightly spirits when we go to Denver this summer.

Just took the Nightly Spirit Pub Tour in Alexandria (8:30pm). Our guide was very young and said she had just started 4 months ago. Unfortunately she was more interested in herself and her "performance" with scary sounds and flailing arms and we missed the eerie important facts. We (4 of us) left early. Once we got home and I had... More

Disappointed and do not recommend Alexandria Nightly Spirits Pub Tour. Stories were not interesting. One pub we visited was far too small to accommodate the group size.

This was a great blend of sightseeing, historical insight, human interest tales & nice beverages. Bundle up in the winter for sure, but totally worth booking a tour. Our tour guide (Steven) was hilarious and a tour highlight!

I don't even believe in ghosts and I loved this experience. Renee taught us a lot about the history of Alexandria and it was really awesome. So whether you believe in ghosts or history this tour is totally worth the experience!
