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!

Lisa was a lovely guide. She was punctual and took the time to customize the tour to me. She was friendly and very informed. We did the Lotte tower and surrounding malls, took a taxi ride through Apgujeong Rodeo Drive and Garosu-Gil and then finished off with a tour through Bongeunsa temple where she shared detailed information about Buddhism. Finally she gave me some Korean food tips nearby my hotel. Great half a day well spent!

Friendly and helpful guide. Everything went smoothly according to plan. It’s so much more convenient especially if you are planning to do some shopping as you can leave your purchased items in the car and hop on and off at the various places you want to go without the hassle of carrying all your shopping bags around.

Lisa was an amazing guide! She paid attention to what kind of sights I’m interested in and she took me to a UNESCO heritage site on the fly, in the middle of Gangnam! I had a blast!

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