What you’ll do

Welcome to Seoul - you might be wondering, where on earth do I start? 

You’ll join one of our Seoul hosts as they help you orientate yourself in the South Korean capital so that you’ll be able to venture forth in complete confidence.

Depending on what you’d like to do, they could help you get to grips with the stellar public transport system, take you around to a few sights, or simply cruise around a quirky neighbourhood with you, showing you its highlights and local haunts.

Now would be a great time to ask any questions you have about exploring the city and you’ll find your host to be a treasure trove of local knowledge.

Where to eat? They’ve got suggestions. Where to stay? They’ve got you covered. Any cultural dos and don’ts? They’ll help you out there too.

Consider this your one-stop-shop on all things Seoul, and get ready to kickstart your trip in the best way possible!

A detailed tour in 2 hours

My host picked me up from my hotel and we went to the nearest place so she could get a detailed understanding what I wanted from the experience. After that she showed me around Gangnam and we took public transport which was important so I could navigate around the city. She knew English well and went beyond my expectations of what I was expecting from the experience.

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 :)
