What you'll do
Follow the unique route, which your Local Host has designed specifically for you, either by walking or using public transport so you can get familiar with how to move around the city and use the public transport.
Your local will give your trip a kickstart, helping you to make the most of your time in Seoul by showing you the highlights in the area you want to explore and helping you get familiar with the city and its unique culture.
Learn about the city’s cultural practices, heritage, culture and cuisine as you explore the city together, perhaps stopping to try some authentic local street food or visiting a shrine.
Your local will also advise you on the best way to spend the rest of your trip, helping you to discover other areas of Seoul that they know you’ll love, as well as sharing their local travel tips and tricks so you won’t fall into the tourist traps!
What To Expect
We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality and interests so we can assign a like-minded Local Host who can create a bespoke experience for you.
Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience you can always change your mind about what you want to do.
Your Local Host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.
Although you will see the main attractions in the area, your Local Host will also help you to discover the places, things and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make the city unique.

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 :)
