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
Jessie was fabulous! I had a long layover in Seoul and she worked with me to get the most out of our four hours. Jessie worked to make sure I saw things I was interested, including changing the type of market we saw from food or trinkets to a fabric and trimmings market. Great fun! I would definitely reach out to Jessie again the next time I am in Seoul and Korea!
