Things to know


    We had a wonderful time exploring Seoul via train / metro and walking with Johnnie. It is our first time in Soeul, and this tour allowed us to explore and orientate in a new city. Johnnie spoke perfect English and was willing to accommodate our itinerary as much as possible. It was certainly worth just doing the tour to understand how the train / metro system works, it gave us much confidence to continue using the train / metro system throughout South Korea.

    Perfect layover food tour and site seeing in Seoul, South Korea. I had a long layover in Seoul and decided an evening food tour would be the best way to take advantage of my time. I couldn't have chosen better. Dongwook "Andrew" Lee, Esq showed me an outstanding time and I fell love with South Korea in just 4 hours. Prior to arrival, Andrew was very communicative (via Whatsapp) to understand the types of things I am interested in and how to best prepare for the tour. After easily finding the express train from the airport to Seoul Station, Andrew met me and took me all over. He knew I was an adventurous eater, so he took me to a street market that had a few restaurants on the edges of the market. Andrew chose one that was spectacular. We dined on live octopus, raw meat with egg and pear, mong bean pancakes with seafood, some kimbop, and a nice rice wine. Every single thing was amazing and filling. We finished the night walking to a few points of interest that were still open at night and then he took me back to the train. This was exactly, and more, of what I wanted. I could not be happier and would recommend Andrew in an instant.

    I feel like we learnt so so much incredible information in just a few hours. Jay told us the highlights of the history of the gyeongbokgung palace, pointing out some things we would never have spotted without him. Following the palace he also showed us some lovely shopping streets and eating spots. I really really appreciated getting his opinion and just in general am so so glad he was our tour guide.

    Ruth Park was a great guide for us in Seoul. She was very considerate of us and let us tour at our own speed, showing consideration for our age. Very pleased with her.
