Morning tour

Lovely and respectful, it was a privilege to do this tour! Thank you, Dan!

Unique opportunity for a night out like a local

This tour gave us an authentic glimpse of what the local night life is like, an experience that I highly doubt we wouldve been able to stumble upon ourselves. We've visited the same area during the day time but at night when Daniel took us to the same spots, the area has completely transformed. In addition to eating at the tents, we were also able to visit local bars. Daniel was an excellent guide. He's friendly, approachable, able to tailor the tour based on your interests, and explain nuances about Korean night culture. This tour offers a very unique experience and I highly recommend it if you're looking for a night out like a local.

Truly a gentleman!

Thank you for the wonderful night walk and "That" style bistro which I often watch in Korean dramas. You made my dream come true. This is my 6th visit of Seoul, but never had a chance to enjoy local tent bistro with a local mate. Stopping at fortune telling cafe posed you a three straight full translation and it was a lot of help for us. Two of my friends were also impressed by your sophisticated way of attending us. You are knowledgable, such as, religion topic and politics.Thank you very much.

So glad that you enjoyed the tour with me and had a memorable night! :) I also had a great time exchanging our languages and cultures with you. Hope you had a safe trip back to Japan! Thank you so much :)
