Shawn was a really great host for this tour! I was surprised what was hiding down some of the many alleyways within Seoul. The story-telling was very gripping, and there's a lot of fun comedic moments along the way. The extended tour is definitely worth a shot too, there's a few more fun places along the way to check out. Thanks for a fun evening!

This tour couldn't have been better. The weather was absolutely perfect even in late November. Our tour guide, Shawn, was personable, patient, and thorough. I am typically a scaredy cat myself, can't tell you the last time I watched a horror movie. However, this tour is the perfect blend of skin prickling sensations and curiosity inciting lore. You will walk away, not with feelings of terror, but more so a deep appreciation for Korean folklore and history. If you want something unusual to add to your travel experiences than this is the tour for you. If you are looking for a chilled way to spend an evening and want to learn something also then sign up for this tour immediately. The walking is long so be sure you wear comfortable shoes no doubt. None of the walking is through any serious terrain but even typical city walking can begin to wear one down. Thanks to Shawn again for this amazing tour!

It's the history the history books don't want you to know! Loved all the spooky tales filled with fascinating information! I've lived here for 3 years and discovered parts of Seoul I had never seen. I went on the regular tour, came home, and immediately booked the extended tour. Highly recommend.

We had a fantastic experience with the Dark Side of Seoul tour, some of it pant shittingly scary. I personally think they could go even darker tbh. I loved Shawn's attention to the details, dark historical knowledge of Seoul and folklore tidbits, some good storytelling. The long walk on the extenteded tour is worth it for the extra spooky bits. Thanks DSOS

Even though I was the only one on my tour, Joe still made the evening fun and spooky with great content! I like learning about history, and the guide has a lot of knowledge on the history of Korea. I’m happy I got to experience this just before Halloween! A worthwhile experience for enjoyers of history and lore.

Very good tour with Joe. Everything is well organized and clearly communicated beforehand. We enjoyed all the bits and pieces of history spread throughout as we walked around the Jongno neighbourhood. We definitely learned new things about the city and its history, even if we didn't get super scared (tough to do so when there's neon light everywhere).
Joe was a really nice tour guide!
