About Tour Guide Jake (jong kyu) Y.

Hi, My name is Jake.

I love meeting new friends and traveling all over the world. That's why I'm working as a private tour guide in Korea!

I also love taking pictures. That's why I'm also a professional photographer, and I don't mind sharing my photographic skills with you! I will be happy to take photographs of you on tour and to help you with your photography when requested.

I have plenty of experience giving private tours of Korea having received my tour guide license in 2014. I love sharing the culture and history of my home country with my guests!

There are so many beautiful places to see in Seoul, Korea. Seoul is the capital city of Korea with over 600 years of history. It is the heart of Korea's politics and economics as well as culture and education. Seoul has many old historic places like Gyeongbokgung Palace and traditional culture places like Bukchon Hanok Village, Insa-dong, etc. The shopping and entertainment districts of Myeongdong and Korea's largest underground shopping mall, COEX also a lot of tourists coming every year. The Han River, which runs through the middle of the city, is also a beautiful landscape that offers resting areas for citizens. Kwangjang Market, which is the the traditional urban market over 100 years. Seoul N tower, which is the famous tourist destination frequented by both domestic and international tourists. Top of the tower, there is an observatory, you could see whole the amazing view of Seoul and love padlocks, too.

Why don't you join my tour and have plenty of fun and memories during your visit to Korea?

I'm looking forward to seeing you soon.

Thank you.

Jake

Jake (jong kyu) Y. South Korea Tour Reviews

Pleasant and personable

We appreciated his timeliness. Jake altered our tour to our liking.

Ellen T.

Thank you very much! I hope you enjoy the rest of stay in Korea. Thanks.

A good photographer!

He gently lead our group of 6 people, including 4 kids. Walking around in Gyeongbokgung Palace was nothting more than a joy wearing Hanbok and accompanying a professional photographer. Bokchon was also a nice place to stretch our steps even in the heat of boiling summer. You encounraged kids and we are finally happy to be there. Looking at the photos you sent us later, we found it was really the most beautiful photo shooting spot. Thank you for your Japanese command and professional photos! It was a good summer day in Seoul.

Namie M.

Thank you very much! Even hot weather, kids were very patient and so cute. I look forward to seeing you again. Thanks. Warm regards Jake

I found my first OPPA out of K drama!

The plan was well-orgaized in all walking distance from my hotel. I asked him to include "Hanok" photo spots and Korean Chimak experience in tour itinerary. He gave me a full support of how to get to GMP airport even after the tour, carrying my suitcase at subway station. Guide talk at Gyeongbokgung Place was exactly a professional one from his experience and also from his good English ( he's good at Japanese, too). I recommend this guide to all future Seoul visitors. Let's meet up again either in Seoul or Tokyo.

Thank you for your review. I was also happy with you. I am looking forward to seeing you again. Thank you.
