    CRAFTING YOUR TOUR EXPERIENCE

    Reserving your group tour is easy. Tell us what date you'd like to book, how many people are in your group, and any other details you'd like for us to know, and we'll make it happen. We'll schedule your tour for what day works best for your group and your plans.

    All we ask for large or private tours is that you book with us a month in advance so we can best prepare for your tour!

    If you book earlier than a month in advance, we offer a discount. We also offer a discounted rate for large groups.

    Sounds good? Fill out the form below and we will reach out to you. We can’t wait to get to know you and your group!

    Book an Extraordinary Private Tour

    Our NY Ghosts group tours give ghost aficionados and history buffs a more intimate, private, and interactive experience.

    Unlike our standard tour, private groups are led by a tour guide who is focused on your group, and only your group. This allows for an experience that can be tailored to your group’s unique needs, personalities, or interests.

    Inquisitive types can ask their guide as many questions as desired without feeling self-conscious. Photography enthusiasts can take the time to pause at each tour stop and snap photos to their hearts’ content. Small children can enjoy a delightfully spooky tour that is scary—but not too scary.

    Suffice it to say: our tours can accommodate virtually any event, age, or group size.

    We can host groups for field trips, birthdays, bachelor/bachelorette parties, Halloween, graduation celebrations, corporate team building, family reunions, Independence Day, professional networking, clubs, conferences, anniversaries, conventions, girls’/guys’ night out, family vacations, sports teams, wedding festivities… or just because!

    With our private NY Ghosts tour, even regular nights become unforgettable memories, and special occasions are made that much more special.

    After all, there’s nothing usual about the unusual, and nothing normal about the paranormal. Booking a group tour with NY Ghosts means ensuring an outing that is fun, factual, historical, haunted, and unlike the average group activity.

    Enjoy the unexpected. Contact us today for more details on creating your private tour experience.

    SCHOOL TOURS

    Showing Students a Different Side of D.C.

    Field trips and educational tours in Washington, D.C. tend to involve a brisk walk through a museum or two, and brief stops at the most famous monuments. As both local and visiting educators know, these tours don’t do justice to the immense, rich history living in our nation’s capital. Our DC Ghosts tour thoroughly shines a light on that (after-)living history in an informative, interactive format.

    The tour brings students to the sites, but doesn’t stop there. Through engaging, unexpected stories, we show them the side of these locales that isn’t in their textbooks.

    For educators, the following section has answers to some frequently asked questions about our tour.

    If you have any other questions, comments, or concerns about the nature of our tour, please feel free to contact us.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    “DC Ghosts” sounds unsettling. Is your tour appropriate for all students?

    Don’t let the spooky name fool you: our tour is appropriate for students of all ages, grade levels, and backgrounds. We can accommodate K-12 students and college groups alike.

    How can a ghost tour also be good for early grades?

    As we’re well aware of the potentially frightening nature of our tour, we can adjust what stories we tell, and in what detail, for groups of smaller children.

    We want your students to enjoy our tour as much as we enjoy it—not be so scared that they can’t focus.

    What’s the educational value of this tour?

    Unlike the stereotypical ghost tour, our tour isn’t all scare, no substance.

    We cover, in detail, the historical background of every location we visit. In the interest of accuracy, the stories on our tour are also backed by research. We strive to balance educational content with entertainment—we don’t tell merely tall tales, but fact-based accounts.

    During our tours, our guides provide the right balance between learning and excitement. They don’t lecture, nor do they over-act.

    At DC Ghosts, we share your passion for your students’ education. We want your students to leave our tour having had a great, memorable time, and having learned more about our nation’s history, Presidents, and other pivotal figures in the process.

    What about the actual stories? Is there any disturbing subject matter?

    Please rest assured: regarding content, our tour does not cover any material more sensitive, upsetting, or disturbing in nature than what’s already discussed in most history textbooks. We do not go to great lengths to sensationalize the history of the sites we visit; it’s dramatic enough as it is.
