I took this 3 years ago with 2 work colleagues and loved it. So when I returned to Korea in January 2018 with 2 different colleagues we took the tour as well. Great food, interesting stories and fun tasting local beverages - soju, makgeolli... I would highly recommend! If you are familiar with Anthony Bourdain, he visited the Mapo district restaurant we visited and it was featured on his TV show, No Reservations in April 2015!

Come back a third time. You're always fun, and you bring fun people along.

I love going on haunted tours and Shawn from KimChi Tours exceeded my expectations! I heard a lot of good quality ghost and murder stories and also learned about Korean folklore (I still think about these sometimes when I enter a bathroom!). I also got a better feel of Seoul as we walked around several places, which is perfect since I was visiting the city on a trip.

Thank you, Lizzy! If you want to continue the experience, Minji the Ghost has taken over our Facebook and website chat. Talk to her if you dare.

I booked the Seoul Hike last minute and I'm glad they were able to arrange it for me at such short notice. I had a great time and really enjoyed listening to our guide Shawn telling us all about the legends and folklore surrounding the mountains. I took away some great photos of the stunning scenery and really enjoyed the day. There were only two of us on the tour with Shawn that day so it didn't feel rushed or too busy and the food at the end was delicious. I look forward to booking either the same of a different tour when I'm next in Seoul

Thank you! Shawn made this tour because he was so frustrated by other hiking tours that were just racing up and down a mountain. He adds culture and stories to make it truly memorable.

The Dark Side of Seoul Tour was fantastic! Joe was an amazing guide and was very knowledgeable about the areas. A few areas really scared me, and that made it worth every cent. I recommend everyone go on this tour at least once because it's amazing and thrilling. I learned a lot more about Seoul than I ever expected. I would love to go on the tour again next year.

Victoria, I have an admission. I got spooked a few months ago myself, and I LEAD the tour.
