Hi! My name is Ilona and I was born and raised in Russia. I'm third generation Korean so I was always curious about Korea, it's history and culture. So 3,5 years ago I made important choice-I decided to learn Korean and live in Korea for some time. I'm avid book reader and also like to share my knowledge with others. Also good singer and good friend. I like to meet people of different contries and share our life experiences. It's always really fun and fruitful.

going with a own guide is a good experience. Going the normal (public) way shows also the "normal" life... I only can recommend it. Soeul is difficult from language and to have a nice and helpful guide makes a good day.

We couldn't have had a better host!
We only had 6 hours in Seoul and mainly wanted to get a feel for the city and see a few sites. Yujin was so personable, she helped us store our luggage and purchase metro tickets, and we just learned so much more about the South Korean culture during those hours by being with her.

Evening in Hongdae
I was really curious about this as I've never booked a local host before but Yujin made the evening a super pleasant experience. According to my basic idea of what I'd like to do, she came up with some great plans and it turned out a very nice and fun evening. We went to a restaurant and to a beautiful flower cafe which I would have never found/visited by myself. Yujin was a very nice host and time just flew by. Definitely one of the best memories I made on this vacation. Thanks again :)
