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.

The location of the meeting was pretty easy to find. It was my first time ever using a subway and it was pretty easy! Just take the green line if your meeting location is in Anugk. If you stay in Lotte city Myeongdong, the ending location is only 16 minutes away. Not that many picturesque places, but it was really cool walking Seoul at night and going down alleys you wouldn’t really go through as a normal tourist.

This was an incredible tour which was thoroughly enjoyable, entertaining and informative. The tour guide, Shawn, was very engaging and he had clearly done huge amounts of research. The weather couldn’t have been better either - thunder and lightning right on cue for dramatic effect! I would also recommend staying on for the extended tour - well worth it. Really superb tour! Thanks so much Shawn! Cheers Ross

Very spooky tour. Shaun was a very charismatic and knowledgeable guide, with a deep understanding of Korean folklore. Highly recommend taking this tour, as there is only one other tour like it in all of South Korea.

A very unusual and interesting tour, which would lead you to unexpected areas of Seoul, all for the best !

Get to know the city in a completely different way.
