Crisstel was an amazing guide

Crisstel was over punctual in picking me up at my hotel. She fulfilled all my wishes and was able to answer all my questions. She gave me a lot of insights about Seoul. She showed me places that tourists usually don‘t get to see. It was a great experience and we had lunch together and even gave me a small gift including a Seoul tourist quide book. Great performance. Can only recommend!!! Thanks Crisstel

Regarding the hiring by this application it is totally recommended and safe. But I think it is more convenient to recommend it because of the excellent quality of person of our guide Cristtel. He has taken great care to give us all the necessary information, he fulfilled our requests for determined data, but he far exceeded my expectation. Our trip to Seoul is dedicated to tourism and especially to the KPop theme. I would like you to convey our appreciation and gratitude to our guide. Hire this service that is very useful
