    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    This popular tour is finally on audio! Murder! Ghosts! Sex! This is the side of Seoul that you won’t find in the tourism brochures. Take a tour down the dark alleys of the forgotten 600-year history of bloody massacres, seedy hideaways, and mourning ghosts. Stops on this tour include the following: the site of a gruesome massacre, the bridge whose stones tell a dark story that lovers and passersby know nothing about, and a neighborhood known to be occupied by the spirits of prostitutes who met grisly ends. Along the way we regale tales of Seoul’s famous ghosts and murderers, weird and surprising landmarks, and the ancient city’s scandalous secrets. Clairvoyants on the tour have reported that we also have a few vaporous guests who join us. Keep an eye out for them. There will be an opportunity to buy refreshments. Children under 18 should not take this tour. It involves violent stories, sex jokes, and a foul-mouthed tour guide.
