Exceptional Guide: A Seamless Introduction to Seoul

We had the pleasure of being guided through Seoul by Moses on our first day in South Korea, and it was an unforgettable experience. Moses expertly navigated us through the city, immersing us in its rich history, diverse culture, and vibrant modernity. From the moment he collected us from our hotel, Moses exhibited professionalism, warmth, and a genuine passion for sharing his knowledge. His calm demeanor and patience were evident throughout the tour, making us feel comfortable and eager to learn. Moses’s wealth of knowledge about Korean history, from ancient times to modernization, was truly impressive. He seamlessly weaved together timelines, anecdotes, and insights, providing context and depth to every site we visited. Not only did Moses enlighten us about the historical landmarks, but he also introduced us to the intricacies of Korean cuisine, ensuring we savored the flavors of the country. His recommendations for local eateries added a delightful culinary dimension to our tour. What truly set Moses apart was his impeccable control over the tour. Despite the bustling streets of Seoul, he kept our group organized and engaged, ensuring that everyone had a fulfilling experience. In summary, Moses exceeded all expectations as a guide. His professionalism, knowledge, and personable nature made our introduction to Seoul both educational and enjoyable. Without hesitation, I award him a well-deserved 5-star rating. If you’re planning a trip to South Korea, make sure to include a tour with Moses for an enriching and unforgettable experience. Thank you for an unforgettable day!!

Great introduction to Seoul

Moises started the tour at the Seoul Library and City Hall to give a modern history perspective on events that shaped Seoul today. We walked to the palace area and Bukchon hanok village for a glimpse of traditional Korea. We finished off at the Insadong district, where old/traditional shops, teahouses and restaurants coexist with their more modern versions. I think as a Westerner who lives locally, Moises offers a sensitive perspective on history and cultural differences.
