Mostly walking tour in Seoul city tour, however, we need to use my private van for outside of Seoul, airport pick up and so on, in this case there might be an extra charge for that.


7 people is OK without luggages, , but 5 pax would be better with luggages if you use my van.

Seoul Tour Reviews

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.
