Latest reviews from our guests

    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.

    Wan-Hyeog, our fabulous host, was prompt, caring, and very pleasant. Wan hit all of the hidden gems we were hoping to see while in Seoul… plus more! He was well versed in Korean History, arts and culture and shared all of this with us. He was a true pleasure to spend the day with. We highly recommend his services.

    We do a lot of private tours and this was by far the best one. It wasn't the company that made the tour wonderful, it was our tour guide, Arnaud. He was so knowledgable about the sites, past/present culture, and history of Korea. He took us to a local "off the beaten path" cafe that we would have never found in a tour book or blog. In fact, they had the best matcha latte and that's saying a lot since I'm a match latte-holic. He's also fluent in French, English and Korean which made it even better. We were able to have in-depth conversations with him. His flexible and casual demeanor allowed for impromptu stops and detours along the way as we saw fit. I highly recommend the tour, specially if you are able to request Arnaud as your tour guide.
