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.
Dear Racquel, thank you for the kind words and the beautiful review! I always do my best for the guests, I am glad you appreciate it :) Keep in touch.
I never expected a Spanish guy could give me such a detailed guiding service based on history. I was surprised how he tried hard in the beginning of his tour guide job in Korea. About politics, economy, modern K culture, ...he knows everything truly at professional level). Some topics are very delicate at certain spot when we look back the history among Asian countries, but the way he talked was quite neutral which was a great help for me as a Japanese traveler. Feeling relaxed all through the tour time, I finally made up my mind to eat Sundae for the first time in my life. I recommend this guide to whomever comes to Korea! He'll serve you with good heart and full of knowledge.
Thank you, Namie for your lovely review! I am so glad to have the opportunity to guide you in Seoul. Hope to host you someday again in any of our destinations. Kind regards. Moises
