The Dark Side of Seoul Ghost Walk
Trip Advisor Hall of Fame

Still have the shiversssss

Not only did he spook us with countless tales of woe and legend, many of the places or landmarks that he pointed out have been right there under my nose for years. Would highly recommend to anyone who isn’t afraid of walking and/or ghosts

I knew it would be good but didn’t expect it to be spectacular!

Being Korean-American, I also felt a sense of pride hearing some of the tales. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who loves folklore, history or scary stories!
