Dark Siders Speak out
The tour was well put together. Entertaining. A lot of the stories were really great. It left me wanting even more. I want to know all of the messed up stuff that happened in Korea’s history. The Alley of Ashes was especially cool.
I thought it was great. I had been on a lot of those streets before and I had no idea that any of those things had happened. For me, it was a true learning experience.
It was really interesting. The things he talked about aren’t in the history books and they go off the beaten track. He even took us on some side streets where you usually don’t go. I’m from Edinburgh where they have a lot of these ghosts tours and on them, people jump out and scream at you. I was really glad there was none of that.
In a way, Seoul is an old city but also a new city. Normally, you just hear the same history all the time—the history of the palaces, about King Sejong and the more traditional stuff. I liked hearing something different and exploring the small alleyways. I thought Joe was a great guide.
