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.

Excellent!

Hanna was amazing and really fun. We had a wonderfull time together. She helped me to understand how to get around Seoul. She was very informative and intentive. Thank you for everything!

Kelly was an excellent tour guide. She tailored the evening around Seoul to my other tours as to provide no overlap of sights! Thanks a ton for a good evening!

This tour is great, they are very happy to adapt the tour to your needs, very organised and very helpful
