Awesome Local Guide
Oct 2021 • Family
Priscilla was an absolutely amazing tour guide! The ability of a local who knows the area and knows how to get around such an immense city really made the experience so much better than a standard tour. After only a few hours she felt like a part of our family and we hope that if we ever get the chance to tour Seoul again it will be with her. Her ability to take the time to explain things in a down to earth manner with a local understanding, both of the Korean perspective and an understanding of western perspectives allowed her to show use things and places that other people may not have picked up on. She is just a very nice person who loves her city and enjoys sharing it with others. Ball of energy that has an infectious upbeat attitude😃

I had a great time with Sanghee exploring the less obvious places of
Seoul. Even booked very last minute, she was available and showed me
great getaways from the busy city live, we hunted ancient sides, had
delicious food from salty to sweet and I saw the city from a true
local. Sanghee is fun & talkative and made the tour a true unique
experience. I highly recommend her!

Unexpectedly a great City Tour of Seoul
Jan 2020
We didn't know what to expect and we were extremely please with
Megane. She showed us the main highlights and took us to some really
cool hidden spots. She even taught us how to use the metro system
which gave us confidence to ventured to other places the day after our
tour. She was really knowledgeable about the area and took great
photos of us I highly recommend her.

Great Intro to Seoul
I had my tour with Yejin on my first day in Seoul and it really helped kickstart the rest of my time in Seoul. Aside from taking me to some cool tourist attractions, Yejin helped me plan out other sights and neighborhoods to explore during the rest of my time in Seoul. She gave me great advice on navigating the subway and how to get around Seoul in general.

Ho Jin is the best tour guide ever!
Jan 2020
I've had many tour guides over the years, but Ho Jin is the best one
ever. I really liked his accommodating our needs, such as giving us a break at a coffee shop when we needed it mid-tour, taking us to a
great lunch place, and substituting a subway trip with a bus to save
going up and down stairs near the end of the tour when we were tiring, even though these extras made the time of the tour to go over.

Highly recommended!

Great tour
Dec 2019 • Couples
We highly recommend Yejin. Her English was great and she was easy to
communicate with. We also thought She was an excellent guide. We saw
more and learned so much more with Yrjin at our side. A huge thank
you!

Wonderful tour
Dec 2019
We had just one morning to get an overview of the beautiful city of
Seoul and Lo Jin was the perfect guide for us. He picked us up at our
hotel and drove us to a variety of temples and traditional
neighbourhoods around the city. We saw ancient houses still in use as
well as local handicrafts and markets. The weather was foggy so we
didn't get to see the observation point above the city but as an
alternative Lo Jin took us to a museum where there was an amazing
scale model of the entire city plus another of Seoul in olden times.
Lo Jin was an interesting and informative guide and we would
thoroughly recommend him.
