    1. Seoul: Dark Side of the City and Ghost Stories Walking Tour

    Prepare yourself for the creepiest, historically accurate, and frighteningly bone-chilling tales. Korea has a unique history that will suck you in. You will see places where bloody massacres occurred. You will walk under a bridge that carries a dark sinister secret. You will encounter three of Seoul's five palaces and learn the secrets about one of them that even Seoulites do not know. Your tour will be led by a historian who will tell you the dark side of Korean history including Prince Suyang's slaughter of his nephew's men and the massacre at the site where Korea's first Western hospital was at. Tales in Japanese Colonial times will be shared while walking in royal palaces. The itinerary extends to other parts of Seoul such as Nagwon-dong and Chenggyecheon Stream. Hear modern urban legends, true crime events, and quirky secrets of buildings that the local government would prefer you ...

This is an amazing tour. Sean was so knowledgeable about folklore, history, politics, and ghost stories. This is one of the best tours we’ve taken. We love learning about a culture, and Sean was one of the most intelligent guides we’ve had in 6 months of traveling. Highly recommend.

Entertaining and exciting

Our tour guide Joe was well informed about Korean history and entertained us with many creepy and sometimes abstruse stories. Unfortunately we were not able to visit all the scary locations - but through him we got to know places that we would have definitely missed. Very exciting!

Great experience! Our guide Shawn was able to put us in the right mood. It was original to see Seoul in another way and I definitely recommend this night tour. A word of advice all the same: know how to speak English fluently enough to make the most of it!
