Nice introduction to Seoul with Dario
"We had a really nice introduction to Seoul City with Dario. We walked around some of main downtown attractions and Dario gave us input on history and current issues of the city and the country. Dario is a polite, nice person to hang around with. "MichalisAbout local DarioSeoul, September 2023
Great food tour
"We had a fun and tasty tour with Julian. Not only did we get to try several dishes, we learned some history and enjoyed walking between food stops. This tour was a good decision, and I would do it again."AndreaAbout local JulianSeoul, September 2023
"We very much enjoyed Sanghee's tour, and enjoyed it as an introduction to Seoul on our first day in the city. She took the time to ensure we were oriented, that we saw what we liked, and that we were comfortable with a cool drink when one was needed. Would definitely recommend!! "MelissaAbout local Sanghee PriscillaSeoul, September 2023
Thanks so much Ho Jin!
"We had a fantastic morning with Ho Jin exploring Seoul. Our tour covered a lot of ground literally and figuratively. Ho Jin takes great pride and interest in the history of Korea and we felt privileged to see so much of the city while learning about it ourselves. Thanks Ho Jin!"StuartAbout local Ho JinSeoul, September 2023

Great introduction to the center of Seoul
"Hi Jin gave a great tour of the center of Seoul. During the tour he gave great tips in regards to restaurants to eat, places to buy things and places to drink. Definitely recommend going with him if you want to have a globetrotters view on Seoul. "Sugeng ErnestAbout local Ho JinSeoul, August 2023
DMZ private tour
"This was our second tour with Sanghee - she is a great host. Really friendly, informative and helpful. Excellent English and easy to talk to. We were picked up at 6.30am from our accomdation - early start is needed to minimise later queues. Much more relaxing and enjoyable to have a personal tour than be in a large bus group. Sanghee drove us to the start of the DMZ tour where she got our tickets and accompanied us to the 3rd tunnel, the observatory and a village in the DMZ. JSA is currently closed so not an option for visitors. Tour of DMZ is about 3 hours but whole trip about 7 - 8 hours. Fasciating experience to see the border with North Korea but it is surreal to think of this as a tourist destination. Worth a viist if in Seoul for several days."
Seoul Street Food tour
"Sanghee was a fantastic host - communcation before the tour was excellent. She met us promptly at our hotel and took us on a delicious journey through the tastes of Seoul. We sampled a wide range of savoury and sweet foods in restaurants and stalls. Sanghee made sure to tailor the food to us including gluten free and vegetarian options. It was our first day in Seoul and she helped with transport cards as well as giving us confidence with food choices. HIghtly recommed this tour but make sure you are hungry when you start!"
A unforgettable experience
"Sanghee went above and beyond what we expected! We went to multiple cafes and got some of the most delicious treats on my trip so far! Ending the night with the tea class with something that I know not many get the experience and the atmosphere was so nice and light hearted I would go back in a heartbeat!"KyannaAbout local Sanghee PriscillaSeoul, August 2023
