Review about Ho Jin
"We spent 2 days with Ho Jin, doing both the DMZ day trip and the Highlights & Hidden Gems of Seoul. Ho Jin transformed what could have been a standard tour into a deeply personal and enriching journey, diving deep into the heart of Seoul and the DMZ’s history and cultural significance. The flexibility of the tours was terrific. Ho Jin was more than willing to tailor our journey to our interests, proving that his primary goal was our satisfaction and enrichment. This adaptability, combined with his warm and approachable demeanor, made us feel like we were exploring with a friend rather than just following a guide. Ho Jin also has flawless English and brings rich perspectives from having lived around the world. I cannot recommend Ho Jin enough to anyone looking to truly understand Korea and its significance to both the past and present. His passion for sharing his knowledge and stories, along with his attentiveness to our interests, made for an unforgettable experience"DianeAbout local Ho JinSeoul, February 22, 2024
"I wanted to experience authentic Korean food and didn’t have much time to search myself. Pricilla was the perfect guide to help accomplish my goal. The food was delicious and the overall experience was great. I would highly recommend her. "AndrewAbout local Sanghee PriscillaSeoul, February 15, 2024
A relaxed genuine professional!
"Ho Jin is a genuine professional. Knowledgable and relaxed. Immediately felt comfortable. It is like visiting a friend who walks you through his city. We touched a lot of Seoul highlights and it never felt rushed. Great conversations as well in which I learned some more about the nuances of South Korea’s culture. Because his bandwidth is far bigger than just Seoul’s history and landmarks, your questions will get you a lot more insights than expected. Hence, he is great listener as well and will definitely pick up on your preferences and interests. Certainly not “one size fits all” tours but very personal. I highly recommend Ho Jin.

Tasting Seoul with Priscilla!
"This was a tour I was looking forward to and it did not disappoint. Priscilla was great to tour with, she knew the places to hit and things to taste and what made them special. Fun conversation sprinkled with back stories kept things engaging and fun as we walked on cold day in Seoul. She was great at assisting me with getting transit passes and the best way to use them. Her creativity and flexibility in adjusting the tour on the fly based on my tastes and limited knowledge of Korean offerings was fantastic. Come hungry and enjoy a full tour of eats!"LarryAbout local Sanghee PriscillaSeoul, January 14, 2024

Lots of recommendations too for places to go after the tour. Highly recommended!"FernandoAbout local Sanghee PriscillaSeoul, January 2, 2024
Great Walking and Learning with Ho Jin
"We enjoyed this walk with Ho Jin so much! We learnt about the origin of the Korean alphabet as well as the history of Joseon from Ho Jin. It was nice to have this stroll with a local. Glad we booked this tour! We couldn’t have gained so much if not for this walking tour with Ho Jin. Thank you! "Sri NurayuAbout local Ho JinSeoul, December 24, 2023
Awesome Food Tour with Priscilla!
"My teenage son and I booked the 3-hour food tour for our first day in Seoul. We were hoping for delicious food and some local tips to make the rest of our visit to Korea easier. Priscilla was awesome. We were stuffed with a variety of dishes from the market and got in a great walk with view from a cafe halfway up the mountain. Lots of info on culture, history, food and transit tips! Highly recommend. Thanks for a fabulous adventure!"EricaAbout local Sanghee PriscillaSeoul, December 21, 2023
