What other guests say about our tours and locals
"Priscilla is an excellent guide! Helpful, friendly, informative, knowledgeable, reliable Everything you want in a guide. We’d do a tour with her again and recommend her to anyone going to South Korea! "CAbout local Sanghee PriscillaSeoul, December 2023
Sanghee is a fantastic food tour guide!
"We absolutely loved how friendly and full of energy Sanghee was. She was very easy to chat with and was very willing to fill us to our necks with delicious food. She would point something out on our walk and say "that's, this, actually would you like to try it?" and we'd stop for an extra snack. Needless to say, we were very VERY full at the end and got to try new things. It was amazing! Highly recommend!"TylerAbout local Sanghee PriscillaSeoul, November 2023
"My group and I spent 3 days with Ho Jin as our tour guide in South Korea and we had the best time ever! He took us on a tour of one of the palaces, the DMZ, different temples, brought us to 2 authentic Korean restaurants for lunch, and took us on a relaxed walking tour of various spots in Seoul that I'm sure many other organized tour groups wouldn't even know about. He was very knowledgeable about every place he took us and educated us on Korean culture, language, and history along the way. We had originally planned to do a hike one day but when one of my friends in the group wasn't feeling well enough to do it, he was extremely flexible and accommodating to change up our plan without hesitation. He was quick to come up with some other cool places to take us that didn't require as much walking as the hike would have. He was also very responsive to answering my questions via messaging/email while planning prior to our arrival in Seoul. If you're looking for a top-notch and fun experience, I would highly recommend choosing Ho Jin as your tour guide in South Korea. If I ever return to South Korea, I would definitely choose him as our tour guide again!! One of the best tour guides we've had in any country!"StephanieAbout local Ho JinSeoul, November 2023
"Lots of yummy food (and walking) with a great/friendly guide. Thank you!"AdamAbout local JulianSeoul, November 2023

"Ho Jin is a great guide and I highly recommend him. His communication was great, and he even picked me up at my hotel. We covered a lot of the city and he was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was flexible and adapted to whatever I wanted to do. Great experience!"PamAbout local Ho JinSeoul, November 2023
Street Food Tour
"Priscilla was excellent and made me and my two teenage daughters very welcome and comfortable. She had an extensive knowledge of where to go and what to eat, and found things we would never have found on our own. She kept us entertained with lots of different stories about Seoul and Seoul culture, with different suggestions of activities we could do outside of the food tour. Highly recommended."SusanAbout local Sanghee PriscillaSeoul, November 2023
Tastes of Seoul
"Julian was an excellent host. The food was delicious and gave a good insite on Korean food and this has given me confidence for the rest of my trip to try more Korean food. Julian is very knowledgeable of the history of the tour around the market and local restaurants. I would recommend this tour to anyone coming to Seoul."AnneAbout local JulianSeoul, October 2023
"Ho Jin was so accommodating to meet me at the hotel before our private tour. This was the perfect tour for me since I was travelling solo and only in Seoul for a few days but I wanted to see the highlights as this tour is called. Ho Jin was also very quick to respond to any questions I had through the app before I arrived. Thank you Ho Jin!"MarlaAbout local Ho JinSeoul, October 2023
Amazing (and filling) foodie tour
"Sanghee met us at the agreed time and took us on a tour of some of Seoul’s hidden food gems. We started with an authentic lunch of dumplings in an incredible little restaurant where all of the food is made fresh on the ground floor. The dumplings were by far the best that we’ve eaten on all our travels in the Far East and the only thing that stopped us ordering more was the prospect of having two and a half hours of the tour still to go! After we sampled some street food, both savoury and sweet, from a variety of different stalls before heading by bus to another market in the West of the city where we were treated to Makgeolli (rice wine) and savoury pancakes, which were awesome. Just when you think you can’t eat any more, more street food including fried chicken and glass noddles before, finally, ending in a cafe for a welcome sit down and a coffee. Sanghee was friendly, chatty and informative - we learned a lot and we at LOADS - and she gave us a real insight into Seoul’s traditional food scene. We would definitely recommend and the only advice we would give anyone considering this is to skip breakfast! Thanks Shanghee, we had an amazing time."JohnAbout local Sanghee PriscillaSeoul, October 2023
