This is my most popular standard tour, perfect for any visiting Korea for a serious first look. It walks us through the best sights of Seoul's historic central downtown area, very close to each-other, while I tell the relevant colorful stories at each brief stop. It is completely flexible on the timing and number / nature of the sites visited; all depends on where I pick you up and drop you off, and just what you want to see and do.

Seoul Tour Reviews

An Amazing, Educational Visit through Seoul's History

My wife and I had the pleasure of exploring Gyeongbokgung, Bukchon, Gwangjang, N-Seoul Tower, and parts of Insadong with Paul and we had an incredible time! Paul's knowledge of Korean history, specifically the Confucian influence in architecture, government, and, well, all walks of life within both the modern Korean life as well as the Joseon dynasty was amazing context for our traveling. Sure, we could've wandered around Gyeongbokgung palace by ourselves or listened in on some of the wandering tour guides (who Paul was able to correct a few times), but having a private, guided tour around some of Seoul's most beautiful locals was worth the time and money. I'd definitely recommend seeing if Paul can help you enjoy Korea on your next visit!

Austin M.

The center of culture and center of tour is architecture. Culture is based on spirit of times. Architectural style represents the spirit of times. We can see as much as we know about the spirit of times. Confucianism was the spirit of Joseon Dynasty. Gyeongbokgung represents Confucianism. Without the knowledge about Confucianism, we are not able to fully appreciate authentic value and beauty of Gyeongbokgung. Gyeongbokgung is not only the essence and highlight of palace architecture of Joseon Dynasty, but alos the most beautiful architecture and place in whole Korea.

7 days in Seoul and the surrounding areas with a family of 6

At first we think 7 days might be a little bit long to stay in Seoul and the nearby areas, but Hans suggested an itinerary which turns out to be perfect. All my family members enjoyed the whole period of stay and the touring/hiking/activities. Hans is excellent in guiding us around, and he showed us both good places and good food. Have no reservation to recommend Hans to anyone who is looking for an experienced and attending guide.

P k L.

Thank you vey much, it was my honor to guide so lovely family. Even I learned a lot from you and your family members.. hope we can see again in the future and god bless you.

DMZ and war history tour

We enjoyed our day with Paul who is very knowledgeable on Korean history. The tour did turn out to be quite long (11hours) as the DMZ tour took longer than expected and we got caught in a traffic jam getting back into Seoul. It was an interesting way to spend our last day in South Korea.

Rebecca H.

Guest and her children, Vida and Ruber were very patient despite of tough itinerary, that was started from 6:40 am to 6:00pm, and traffic jam of 2hour & 10min on way back to accommodation. Guests paid to Korean history and reality of diviede Korea. Guests enjoyed beautiful weather of spring season.
