    Awesome After-Dark Tour!
    , Jun 2022
    This tour was more than expected. There was something for all of us. My wife was spooked by the ghost stories, my daughter loved the Korean folk tales, and I was impressed with the historical aspects of the tour. Shawn was a great, well-spoken tour guide, and the route that he took us meandered through all different aspects of Seoul, from ancient to modern, from main roads to back alleys to beautiful parks. Because the tour was at night, it gave us different perspective on Seoul. Be prepared for lots of walking, but Shawn makes the time fly by.

    This was amazing. I've done "ghost tours" in other cities but never anything that has been put together with as much care and research. Even if you don't care about ghosts this will give you a great insight into Korean folklore and history. Well worth doing!
    Somehow welcoming and terrifying at the same time
    , Jun 2022
    So cool I’m considering going a second night but I’m not sure I want to push my luck with any ghosts. Shawn had a super spooky voice which made everything about 10x scarier, which really helped to pull the whole vibe together. Also if you’re torn between the regular and extended, definitely go for the extended if you can handle the walking! Trust me you’ll be sad when it’s over. ps. avoiding the bathroom AND my mirror for the rest of time.
    10/10 Great Find!
    , May 2022
    It was really interesting to see the dark side of souls and so much fun! I love getting to know the parts of a culture and place that aren’t advertised to tourists. It feels like unlocking little secrets! Loved the tour and how interactive it was, being able to walk up and get close to each of the relevant places. Definitely would recommend for any ghost and general spooky fans!
    Unique and perfect experience
    , May 2022
    I love to book personalize experiences every time I visit a new city. This certainly is one of the most unique I’ve done in all my years of travel. The tour was perfect length, full of fascinating stories and history, with a dynamic tour guide who really does an amazing job. The walking was at a leisurely pace and it was one of my highlights on my trip to Seoul. If you’re looking for something extraordinary I definitely recommend this experience.

    We had a great time with Sean. He has years of experience and study on the topics. Great to hear about folklore. Also spooky!
    A very entertaining Saturday evening journey!
    , Nov 2019
    We laughed, we cried, we ate egg bread, we tried to decipher the language of two highlanders filled with more Soju than blood, all in all a very fun time. Joe, being the scholar of the guides, filled us in on a variety of lesser-known facts about the shady side of the now-defunct dynasty. From upside down tomb bridges to the path where couples are destined to break up to very funky and interesting side streets, you'll have a great time. Keep in mind the weekend extended tour is 2.5 HOURS OF WALKING ALL OVER THE PLACE. Don't complain. You know what you signed up for! But seriously, it was entertaining and fun. Thanks to Joe for a good time!

    You hear that, Shawn? They called me a scholar. Happy day for me :)
    A interesting way to discover Seoul and Korea
    , Nov 2019
    We were not sure about that kind of visit, doing most of the time those in Scotland or London. We were wrong, we had a wonderful time. Shawn, our guide was a incredible storyteller, and we enjoy every moments of the walking tour, even when it wasn't about supernatural stories. This is a must do in Seoul !

    Thank you! I hear we run an unconventional ghost tour.
    Amazing Experience!
    , Oct 2019
    This was such a fantastic spooky historical tour walk through Seoul. I've been to Seoul many times and yet this tour was able to show me places I've never seen in the best way possible. I can't recommend this enough - please please do this when you visit!!
    icon Response from Host , Oct 2019
    Wow! Thank you! You've been here a few times, so I wonder what secret places you'd discovered on our little walk.
    Awesome night tour

    I would recommend this tour to anyone in Seoul. Shawn stories were amazing for anyone who likes a good scare and history at the same time.

    Shawn has a spooky voice, too. Thank you!!

    Great tour that connected various Korean ghost stories to its long royal history. It also talked about contemporary crimes and horror stories that honestly scared me. There is a lot of walking so be prepared for that.
    Not what we expected
    , May 2019
    This was not so much a ghost tour. More of a tour where our visibly drunk guide told us about some sad and violent episodes from Korean history.
    Fabulous Tour for the Person Looking for Something Different
    , Feb 2019
    This was a fabulous tour for an individual or group looking for something different. I came across the advertisement for this tour on my Facebook, and I'm thrilled I finally did it. I was alone for the tour, but I didn't feel alone or separated in any way. Shawn was our tour guide, and was filled with lots of cultural and historical information, as well as great and chilling stories. Anything he said could be trusted because he had references for everything, and he forwarded them to us after the tour. He learned a little about the people on his tour, and he tailored it for us. I was completely satisfied with this tour, and still thought about the stories days later. I would suggest this tour for anyone.
    Excellent tour

    Our guide, Shaun, was fantastic. H e was very informative and funny. We loved the stories and the history..
    Not so spooky but informative
    , Aug 2018
    Very nice tour. It was nice to hear sinister stories that you will not know normally from a local person. Shaun was very interesting & was great in telling the stories, He knows a lot more about Korean culture & history. I am an avid fan of Korean dramas & movies and didn't thought of watching the films until after his recommendation. I like this tour very much and I hope others should not miss & will put this in their itinerary.

    Loved this tour which mixed the history of the city with some of the more sinister goings on. Gave a fascinating and different perspective on Seoul that you won't hear from other perspectives. Fantastic set of stories that really brought alive the different places that we visited in a highly engaging manor.
