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 did not know. You might actually meet a ghost so do not be too surprised. You will get a basic orientation of Seoul’s layout and see many sites including the three of five palaces, the Cheonggyecheon Stream, Tapgol Park, the Insa-dong neighborhood, Seoul City Hall, and the iconic Gwanghwamun Square.

Shawn was the most engaging guide. Since I was the only person who signed up, I got a private extended tour. He had interesting stories about Korean folklore ghosts mixed in with contemporary ghosts. The tour was not physically demanding. I learned a lot from Shawn and the places he brought me were very picturesque and interesting.

We had a great experience with Shawn, he is very knowledgeable on Korean history and provides an in-depth and fun experience. Loved all the stories and history. Highly recommend. If you can go at the start of your trip, he makes excellent recommendations for things to do whilst in Seoul.

This was a blast! Joe was a great tour guide and incredibly knowledgeable on Korean history. So you can learn a to And get the chills at the same time!! The only thing I recommend is that everyone needs to buy the extended tour the 1.5 hours is not enough.
