What people are saying about Gyeonggi Province

Sujeong was an excellent guide, and we thoroughly enjoyed walking round Seoul (even with it pouring of rain because of a typhoon). We visited Gwangjang market and tried some delicious street food. Then we visited Myeongdong Street where Sujeong gave us a number of recommendations about places we can eat delicious food in our own time (one of the main things we wanted). We then ate some more delicious food and finished the tour a little bit early due to the rain. But we will be arranging something with Sujeong again before we leave :)

Great day traveling around and exploring the city! Tasted local foods, learned how to navigate the city, and enjoyed our day entirely! Thanks for a great introductory visit to Seoul :)

Yujin wasn’t only showing me a personalised itinerary, she also proved to be a fantastic companion for the day. It felt as if if I was exploring the city with a friend

Giwon was the perfect guide! She was knowledgeable, flexible, and very friendly. I would recommend her 100%

It was a very great, interesting, varied and instructive tour
