Seoul Tour Reviews

Great tour guide

Paul did a great job brining me to the DMZ and explaining the history of the Korean War. He was very diligent in making sure we got ahead of all the other tour groups, which was a big benefit. His background in Korean philosophy was extremely complementary when discussing the history of Korea. Thanks for a great tour!

Chris S.

Despite of peaceful and vibrant atmosphere of Seoul on the surface, Korea has been under volatile state of armistice over last 70 years. In other words, Korean War has never officially ended. It means Korea technically remains at war. Through tour, guest explored the dark side of Seoul; intense tensions, violent confrontations and the constant risk of war between two Koreas. At Imjingak, we also can see the scars and hear the sorrowful memories of the Korean War.

Beyond Expectation!

I recently had the pleasure of touring Seoul with an exceptional guide (Paul K), and the experience was nothing short of fantastic. Paul brought the city to life with his deep knowledge of Seoul's history, culture, and hidden gems. Paul was incredibly friendly and approachable, always ready to go the extra mile (including taking a lot of pics) to ensure that both my brother and me had our interests catered to. Paul offered in depth architectural history behind the serene beauty of Gyeongbokgung Palace making the tour both educational and entertaining. One of the highlights was our visit to Gwangjang market, where Paul introduced us to traditional Korean foods. Ending the tour was a visit to Seoul Tower, which seats on the top of Namsan mountain and provided panoramic views of Seoul. Overall, Paul’s expertise, enthusiasm, and personal touch made our Seoul tour unforgettable. If you're planning a trip to Seoul, I highly recommend booking a private tour with him. You won't be disappointed!

Greatly grateful for good review! 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. 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. I am the only tour guide in Korea, who introduce Korean culture based on Confucianism, the spirit of Joseon Dynasty.

must be experienced

Exploring Seoul/DMZ with Paul was very educational. His knowledge of history and culture is enormous. I learned a lot. But even with the best will in the world, I couldn't remember everything. Paul is very careful about keeping to the schedule, which I really appreciate. He knows every hotspot and he captures the experiences in pictures. Thank you very much for accompanying me and for all the input.

Consiglia C.

Eveytour is pleasure for guide, when guest paid attention and good reaction to guest information. Center of culture and tour is architecture. Architecture represents spirit of times. Confucianism is spirit of Korean culture. Without understanding of Confucianism, people are just fascinated by superficial beauty of architecture. My tour is based on Confucian knowledge, and I am the only guide who share Confuciansm.
