EVERY WEDNESDAY & WEEKEND

Korea's ONE AND ONLY ghost tour.
Murder! Ghosts! Scandal! 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**
**A neighborhood known to be occupied by the spirits of prostitutes who met grisly ends**
You can pay securely in USD online through PayPal or pay in Korean Won by bank transfer or in cash.
Never be at a loss for party conversation again. Brag to your friends at home the things you ate, the tales you learned, and the people you met.
If you enjoy good food and want to learn about eating habits and table manners in korea, it's the ideal solution.Helene
