South Korea

Hello everyone, I am Paul, a tour guide in Seoul. Seoul is a fascinating destination that seamlessly blends the old with the new. I'm excited to show you some of the best things to make your trip fun and excited, through my deep knowledge about culture and history of Korea and exuberant experiences as tour guide. My primary tourist destination is Seoul and metropolitan area, consisting of 5 palaces, Royal Ancestral Shrine, Bukchon Hanok Village, National museum of Korea, War Memorial of Korea and other museums & galleries and contemporary architectures, and Namsan Mt. with N-Seoul Tower, traditional & trendy market places such as Gwangjang market & Hondae street, and also Korean Folk Village & DMZ tour. Center of culture and tour is architecture. Architectural style represents spirit of times. We can see as much as we know about spirit of times. For example, without knowledge about Christianity, the spirit of medieval Europe, we cannot fully appreciate beauty and value of Romanesque and Gothic architecture. Confucianism was the spirit of Joseon Dynasty. Gyeongbokgung represents Confucianism. Confucianism culture of Joseon Dynasty is unique characteristic of Korean culture, compared to Chinese, Japanese and European culture. Hence, my tourist information is based on Confucianism. Thank you for your interest! As your guide, I hope to see you soon in Seoul.

I'm Dylan. It's my pleasure to share a bit about my background with you. I had the privilege of majoring in English Literature at a renowned university in Korea. Following that, I served for two years in the U.S. military base stationed here in Korea. This tenure was indeed an enriching phase of my life where I got the opportunity to deeply understand various cultures and perspectives during my interactions and trainings with my American colleagues. This phase not only allowed me to learn but also nurtured me into a person who holds great respect and understanding towards diverse cultures. In 2018, I was honored to be the driver for the family of Intel's CEO during the PyeongChang Winter Olympics. That wonderful opportunity significantly influenced my decision to become a tour guide. After that enriching experience, I acquired a nationally recognized certification as a tourist interpreter guide. Since then, it's been my pleasure to have conducted over 800 private tours, showcasing the breathtaking beauty of Busan to visitors. I constantly strive to offer the very best service to my clients, rooted in my steadfast philosophy to "facilitate a deep appreciation for the beauty of Busan, creating cherished memories that will last a lifetime." My commitment to this mission remains as strong as ever. I kindly invite you to join me in exploring the hidden beauties of Busan, and to craft special memories together. Would that interest you?

South Korea Tour Reviews

A fantastic fishing experience!

I highly recommend Dylan as a guide in Busan!! I live in South Korea and last month some family members visited me here. My nephews were really interested in fishing so I looked for English language fishing excursions but couldn't find any. I contacted Dylan and he was able to arrange a custom fishing trip for us. He picked us up at the hotel, drove to the harbor and accompanied us during the trip. It was incredible to work with Dylan. He always responded to me promptly, he was very professional and friendly, he learned everyone's names immediately, and he took care of the group really well. Thank you so much Dylan, we had a great time!!

Awesome Busan

We had a great time in Busan thanks to Dylan! He was historically knowledgeable and shared personal experiences as well. We requested a good Korean meat restaurant for lunch, and the food was delicious!! His fun and witty personality made our day an enjoyable one. We would like to make another trip to Busan someday and hopefully connect with Dylan again.

Paju DMZ & Peace park tour

Seoul
9 hours

Friendly and Knowledgeable Guide and Excellent Driver!

We booked a custom DMZ tour with Hans. I was very specific and detailed about the sites we wanted to see, which I recommend. Hans was incredibly kind and accommodating. He picked our group up at 2 different hotels and told us about the history of sites in Seoul as he drove through the city. His English is great, of course. He is very knowledgeable about the history of the city as well as the philosophy, which was wonderful to learn about. As we drove to Paju I was very pleased (and relieved after all of the taxi rides we'd had in Seoul) that he is a fantastic driver, we felt very safe and he drove very smoothly and not too fast or jerky. The van is large and can comfortably accommodate 9 passengers, I believe. Unfortunately one of the main tours we wanted to visit was not available which was very disappointing but he was very understanding about adjusting our tour which I appreciate very much. We continued on the tour and had a nice meal and visited several other sites. He was so kind to our children and very patient with the pace of the tour and stopping for bathroom and snack breaks. It was very hot!! Overall it was a lovely tour and I would definitely recommend Hans as a tour guide. He also does hiking and biking tours, which seems very unique, especially since Korea is quite different than the US when it comes to camping accommodations.
