        Sujeong was a great tour guide! I had already planned to see a lot on more traditional tours. She worked with me to find other things to see so I could see even more of Seoul! We went to Bongeunsa Temple, the Mural Village (lats of hilly walking) and a lot of other places. It was a lot of fun. I had some friends who wanted to join us as well, and it was no problem, just a small additional fee each.

        Although my time was very limited, Arnaud gave me a great impression of the central parts of Seoul in this half day experience. He also commented on history, food, architecture, personal impressions and activities in Seoul. He is good in English and Korean language, so that communication with me and locals was easy. He is also very flexible, so that the program can easily be adapted to make it the best in the given time. Thank you, Arnaud,

        Being my first visit to Seoul (and South Korea in general), I decided to book a day-long one-on-one personalized tour of what the city has to offer. Oki from City Unscripted was my tour guide and we hit it off immediately! :) She was extremely knowledgeable about the attractions that we visited as well as the city’s history, and really knew her way around town. A few days prior to our meetup, Oki gave me some recommendations based on my feedback on what I wanted to do on our tour (places, food, etc.) and how I wanted to go about it (walking, subway, etc.), so by the time we met for the tour she had a great plan set up while still providing options for flexibility. We started the tour at my hotel, and proceeded to walk around town. Places we visited included Seoul City Hall, Gyeongbokgung Palace (where I toured in rented traditional Hanbok clothing), the Blue House (residence of past presidents), and Gwangjang Market. We ate some amazing Korean barbeque (that we cooked ourselves) at the market, where Oki gave me some helpful tips on how to eat barbecue like a local (which I eventually got the hang of). During the tour Oki also gave me a ton of recommendations on other places to visit while in Seoul (such as Bukchon Hanok Village, which I toured the day after and is awesome by the way), authentic Korean snacks (such as Hotteok, a sweet pancake filled with a sweet delicious syrup), and gift/clothing ideas (such as hats, fridge magnets, bracelets, and artwork). I also learned a couple new Korean words (such as “sugohaseyo”) and customs/habits to kind of help immerse myself in the Korean culture and environment (it seemed to work). I took a ton of pictures, and Oki helped out with taking pictures of me as well. We also took a couple of the obligatory selfies lol! My only critique is that I wish we had more time to tour the city (the time went by so fast, but that happens when you’re having too much fun), but I’ll just have to book another tour when I return to Seoul. I would definitely pick Oki to take me on another tour. Thanks Oki, hope to see you next time! :)

        Thomas prepared for me an individual schedule to visit attractions in Seoul that I wanted to see. It was perfect, fun, also with little surprises such as a great local lunch and other sites outside the list that I had prepared. Thomas made my day in Seoul very special. THE highlight of my stay. Five stars!
