My tour guide was Grace and she was amazing!! She taught me how to use the subways to get around and where to get Korean won from an ATM. We went to Gyeongbokgung Palace and Grace talked me into renting a hanbok where they also did my hair. I felt so pretty and it made the experience more special! She also took a ton of beautiful pictures for me! Then we went to Gwangjang market to try street foods. It felt more like friends hanging out than a tour, she was so friendly and she taught me a lot about the history and culture, and afterwards she told me I could text her if I needed any more help getting around or anymore suggestions. She helped me get over my fear of getting around on my own, I really appreciate her and would recommend her to anymone! If I get to come back someday, I would book with her again!

Hannah was very nice and patient.

I loved the local agency sending us a message asking us what we would like to see in the private walking tour. It helped Hannah, our guide, to plan ahead and indeed my daughter and I visited a lot of places. We had a better sense of the city and it’s culture by talking to our guide.

Kelly was an excellent tour guide. She tailored the evening around Seoul to my other tours as to provide no overlap of sights! Thanks a ton for a good evening!

I enjoyed my customized tour with my Korean buddy Ryan. He was very knowledgeable about the sites as we walked. Time well spent.

entertaining tour in the evening palace, unfortunately it was very crowded
