Seoul Tour Reviews

Amazing knowledgeable guide that I learnt a lot from

Lee was a wonderful companion. She explained the history of Seoul and Korea beautifully as we looked around Namsangol Hanok Village. We then went to Namdaemun Market where Lee showed me all the best places to shop and let me see some of those hidden gems like Hair tail Alley and the alley where they sell Knife cut noodles. Lee even took me to a glass shop where I used my prescription to buy reading glasses for a fraction of the price I would pay back home, and it took them only 30 minutes to make. Amazing! I tried hotteok and the most divine dumplings for the first time. We saw Namdaemun Gate and finished the day at Myeongdong Street for some KBeauty purchases. Lee taught me Korean phrases and words I could use and gave me a highly prized sheet of these new words and sayings at the end of the tour. Lee even sent an overview of the day on What’s App. She went beyond the expected and was delightful company. Best day ever in Korea! I cannot thank you enough Lee for everything!

Annette W.

Thank you very much for the great review. I highly appreciate it. It was so much fun being your compay, and I'm very glad you enjoyed it as much as I did! I hope they like the gifts you bought and the phases will be helpful on the trip. Thank you for the great day again. Enjoy your stay in Korea! :-)

Excellent tour with Lee!

Our family very much enjoyed our 5 hour tour with Lee. She had many interesting facts and stories to share and perfectly filled our five hours with interesting stops. Lee had a few surprises for us along the way, keeping us entertained in unexpected ways. I would highly recommend Lee for your tours!

Victoria K.

Hi, thank you so much for coming to the tour. It was very nice to meet you and your family. I had really good time, and I am very glad you liked it too. Hope you can come back to Seoul in the future again! :-)

Hiking and culture in Seoul!

this was the 2nd day with Lee. I was really happy that I booked her for 2 days. We started with a small palace and then went to hike .. we were lucky that there were very few people and she knows every inch of these mountains as she is a hike addict .. it was the perfect day, fall colors on the leaves and warm weather for the time .. during the hike, I learned so much about the history and also, Lee's respect for Koreas culture and people .. I felt enriched by the places and stories and of course Lee knows the right places to eat. Again thank you, my second day passed equaly quick but was different all together .. See you very soon Lee and 'tschangmal kamsamnida!' Matti

Matti W.
