Frequently Asked Questions about Ghost Story Tour of Washington
Is a Scheduled Tour Ever Cancelled?
If there is an unexpected event, such as: Global Pandemic, Tropical Windstorm, Hurricane, Torrential Downpour or Marauding Bear Attack (actually, that last one is not likely), a tour might have to be cancelled. If this does happen, by 6:00pm it will be posted on our Facebook page
Does the tourline phone take reservations?
No it does not and you don't need to make reservations. You can purchase tickets online.
Do I need to purchase tickets in advance?
You can purchase tickets in advance for all tours. For 2022 we are doing advance tickets for Ghost Story Tour.
What if I have tickets for Ghost Story Tour and I arrive really late due to horrible traffic, or you know, bear attack?
We totally understand, those bears are tricky! Ghost Story tour begins at St. John's Church at 16th and H St NW. The first stories are told there so we depart that site at about 15 minutes after the tour begins. Then we head to the Hay Adams Hotel, H street side and after the Hay stories, we walk west on H to the corner of H and Connecticut and we cross H on the West side of Connecticut (Directly across H from Decatur house) We stop by Decatur House and then we walk toward Pennsylvania Avenue.
What Happens If I have purchased Tickets for a Tour and that Tour is cancelled due to Force of Nature?
If you have a ticket for a tour that has to be cancelled due to Nature (Bears! Oh my!), just send us a tweet or email and Natalie will tell you how you can use the ticket on another tour. (We're very flexible because we know what it's like to find out that Wally World is closed).
Does anyone grab you on Ghost Story Tour of Washington?
Nope. It's a non-grabby tour. The stories are scary and the Park is atmospheric and the actors are good. You may be surprised but we promise, no grabbing. There is candy though!
