    Excellent personalized tour of Seoul with Yujin. Friendly and professional experience. We walked through Ihwa Mural Village, Bukchon, Insadong area. Yujin is a wonderful host.

    I had the best introduction to S. Korea from a unique point of view with Yujin. I was paired with Yujin based on a few initial questions and it was spot on in pairing me up with her. Yujin was my personal guide thru Ihwa Mural Village (although there are no longer amazing murals such as the Koi fishes) but it was compensated with a wonderful stroll through Bukchon hanok village, the theatre district, Insadong and Ik Seongdong area. I love handmade crafts and was very happy to purchase local artwork and boho carryall bag from local designer Maki in Bukchon. I was so grateful to Yujin for sharing her insight on everyday life. It has definitely kickstarted more explorations for me in my next visit to S. Korea. Yujin is fluent in English and is so laid back. I think my experience was enhanced since our outlook and personalities complement each other.

    I took a last minute Seoul trip with a local. What a fantastic experience. My guide, Jiwan, gave me a great insight into the history, culture and food of Seoul. His English was perfect and he had a great sense of humour. I was spending the next day on my own sightseeing and he gave me advice about how to get to places I wanted to see. I often do tours with locals when I travel and Jiwan was one of the best guides I’ve had. Highly recommend this tour.

    Yujin was wonderful! My husband and I really enjoyed our 3 hours with her. She was so patient and incredibly kind. We stopped so many times in the palace and temple to take photos and really take it in and she jumped in and took photos for us and with us. We definitely recommend this tour, the service is great and they will email you to ask you certain questions about what things you're interested in so they can tailor the tour for you beforehand. They'll then email you again asking you to confirm if you are happy with the tour places theyve chosen based on what YOU have told them you like to do! This was by far our favourite tour while in SK. Our first time here and we will definitely be back! Thankyou so much Yukjin we wish you nothing but good health and happiness for the future. GOD BLESS
