Seoul, South Korea

I am a certified tour guide with fluent English, knowledge and enthusiasm to share Korean people's past, present and future.

I specialize in fulfilling customized tour requests and delivering the hidden stories of Seoul, not only as a tour guide but also as a local who loves to share the atmosphere of this vibrant city and its story.

Please join me in exploring Korea from its antiquity to the present!

I can arrange chartered van or mini-bus with a driver if you want a private vehicle. I believe this is safer and more fulfilling as you can have my full attention even on the road. For most of walking tours, I go with bus, subway and taxi. I believe the public transportation in Seoul is a must have experience!

A Recent Review of this guide

It was enjoyable experience. She suggested an excellent location for meeting and helped me find an adaptor for my electronic devices. To ease my worries, she lent me her portable battery. I was surprised by the number of places we visited and the quality of each visit. In fact, due to her vast experience, she gave me tips on the best ways to experience a certain place. For example, at the Gyeongbokgung Palace, she showed me the most idyllic places. While I was there, very few people paid attention them.
