Full description
Book this personalized tour and the local operator will contact you with some questions about your interests. You’ll be matched with a like-minded local and a bespoke itinerary will be created just for you. You'll be paired with guides that are passionate about the place they call home and who choose to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them. Meet your guide at a convenient place. If during the tour you feel like changing direction, or your guide thinks you'd enjoy something different, the itinerary can be changed. Enjoy discovering amazing spots that you haven’t heard about and are difficult to find, because they aren't well known to visitors. The day revolves around your wishes, so enjoy your private meet-up and bespoke itinerary and let your local host show you a Seoul you will love.

My host Melissa was lovely and easy to get along with, she did the upmost to ensure i had a wonderful experience. I booked this experience on for my first day in Seoul which was very helpful in seeing a lot in short amount of time and helped in working out transportation and where abouts to go, if i had to do this on my own it would have taken a lot longer to work out where to go and find all the places of interest, also travelling alone it was great to have someone take photos and Melissa also informative on the places we visited. Would definitely recommend

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 :)

Had an amazing day with a great guide, Ashanka. Who helped me explore the most interesting things in Seoul after she tailored an amazing itinerary according toy interests. I had a fun day and would definitely recommend the personalized experience to everyone who need to enjoy themselves and don't want to worry about or don't have time for planning.
