What you’ll do

You tell us what your dream day in Seoul looks like, and we’ll do our best to make it happen.

You’ll join one of our Seoul hosts to explore this sleek ode to modernity as you discover the secrets of the capital together. 

A visit to Jogyesa Temple will soon have you realising that spirituality and heritage is of utmost importance to the people of Seoul.

Apart from taking in the city’s most iconic sights, like Gyeongbokgung Palace or the Dongdaemun Design Plaza, you might also want to follow your feet around the bustling streets to see what you can find.

Go tea-sipping in Bukchon or gallery-hopping in Samcheong-don, or perhaps Bukchon Hanok Village appeals to you. If you’re an active creature, a hike up one of Seoul’s four ‘guardian’ mountains will offer you wonderful views of the sprawling urban jungle.

Whatever you’d like out of your day, be it laid-back wanderings or focused sight-seeing, the choice is yours. We’re just here to help you make it happen!

War ein sehr interessanter, kurzweiliger Tag!

Da wir nur sehr wenig Zeit hatten in Seoul, probierte ich das erste Mal "get your guide" aus. Ich würde das auf jeden Fall wieder machen und kann es nur empfehlen. Sympathischer Guide, gut organisiert, pünktliches erscheinen - einfach Top!

Attentive and enthusiastic

We spent a day with Ben on a customised city tour. Ben was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and attentive. He was keen to show us the sights of his city at our pace and to constantly adjust the day to what we found interesting. A lovely guy and a great guide. Well done Ben!

Immer wieder

Man bekommt Eindrücke und Erlebnisse die nicht in einem Reiseführer (Buch) stehen. Es ist viel authentischer, man lernt die Menschen und ihr Land kennen.
