Get a welcome to Seoul from a local eager to share all the tips to help you make the most of your stay. Meet at your hotel or accommodation and get familiar with the neighborhood. Learn insider tips, such as the best places to eat, buy groceries and how to get around. Alternatively, arrange to meet at a central landmark or intersection to start your walking tour. Hear about the top things to do, customized to your interests. By the end, you will feel more comfortable navigating the city with all the information you need.

    We were surprised that our guides were not Korean. They were international students that have only been in Korea for three years. Many if the things we asked they googled or couldn’t answer. It would have been better with a Korean guide that knew the culture and history

Martina helped us a lot to find our way around Seoul. We saw a lot in 3 hours and got all questions answered. Practical help such as B. How do I use the metro, how do I get a prepaid card she gave us.

Had a great day with Jiwan. I choose 6 hours and I would recommend at least that if you want to explore around in the city.

G-Won was my guide and she was very great at making the experience fun and the time went by so fast.

Easy to handle e-bike, professional tour guide , we have a wonderful trip.
