What you'll do
Visit the most iconic sights like Gyeongbokgung Palace and Jogyesa Temple, and explore renowned districts like fashionable Myeongdong or get off the beaten path and discover a local neighbourhood and less well known Buddhist temples.
Stop to refuel at one of the local’s favourite eateries or street food markets; a hand picked place that suits your preferences, budget and dietary requirements.
As well as visiting the places you most want to see, stop by local spots and places of interest along the way to get an authentic insight into local life in Seoul.
Your Local host will also advise you on the best way to spend the following days of your trip, allowing you to discover other areas of Seoul that you will love and revealing other hidden gems that they know you’ll love.
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 who will create a bespoke experience for you.

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.

going with a own guide is a good experience. Going the normal (public) way shows also the "normal" life... I only can recommend it. Soeul is difficult from language and to have a nice and helpful guide makes a good day.

Fantastic bespoke tour of Seoul
Due to a small medical emergency. we were late for our appointment with Yulia (although we did at least keep her informed) but she didn't bat an eyelid and it never for a moment felt like we were rushing to catch up once we started. We had a really interesting, varied and above all flexible day out: there were several times during the day where we opted to step out of the schedule and Yulia always had the perfect alternative up her sleeve. She was absolutely fantastic with our kids (10 & 8) and we all really enjoyed her excellent English and above all her sense of humour. She is also a very interesting person with a fascinating family history! We had a lot of laughs and experienced a wide variety of places and things to do, without it ever seeming like a long day. Additionally, Yulia arranged some baseball tickets for us which we had been unable to organise for ourselves, and saved me hours of stress and trouble. All in all, we have nothing but the highest praise for Yulia and would recommend her services as a tour guide wholeheartedly and without reservation. Thanks a million!

This is the best choice to really experience the city. Our host Girin was super cool, we talked a lot even before getting to Seoul so we could do and see everything we wanted to. It was the best, we really enjoyed our stay. We loved her!
