Shawn was the most engaging guide. Since I was the only person who signed up, I got a private extended tour. He had interesting stories about Korean folklore ghosts mixed in with contemporary ghosts. The tour was not physically demanding. I learned a lot from Shawn and the places he brought me were very picturesque and interesting.

Linus was an excellent guide! He was very thoughtful in the itinerary and helped every step of the way. This was my first tour of Seoul and it was so helpful to get the lay of the land because Seoul is huge! I highly recommend lLinus and this tour

Martina helped us a lot to find our way around Seoul. We saw a lot in 3 hours and got all questions answered. Practical help such as B. How do I use the metro, how do I get a prepaid card she gave us.

G-Won was my guide and she was very great at making the experience fun and the time went by so fast.

Great way to see some top Seoul attractions with a very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly guide!
