My tour guide was Grace and she was amazing!! She taught me how to use the subways to get around and where to get Korean won from an ATM. We went to Gyeongbokgung Palace and Grace talked me into renting a hanbok where they also did my hair. I felt so pretty and it made the experience more special! She also took a ton of beautiful pictures for me! Then we went to Gwangjang market to try street foods. It felt more like friends hanging out than a tour, she was so friendly and she taught me a lot about the history and culture, and afterwards she told me I could text her if I needed any more help getting around or anymore suggestions. She helped me get over my fear of getting around on my own, I really appreciate her and would recommend her to anymone! If I get to come back someday, I would book with her again!

Hannah was very nice and patient.

I loved the local agency sending us a message asking us what we would like to see in the private walking tour. It helped Hannah, our guide, to plan ahead and indeed my daughter and I visited a lot of places. We had a better sense of the city and it’s culture by talking to our guide.

super convenient for visiting Seoul the pass gives access to the main attractions and its function of wallet for transport works in Busan too (you can recover the money remaining on the pass at the metro stations). It is easy to collect at Incheon Airport.

entertaining tour in the evening palace, unfortunately it was very crowded

Erika was a lot of fun and the tour had some interesting things to see
