Hana S.

Seoul, South Korea

Happy to see you! I am Hana, an official tour guide who is fun, considerate, adventurous and formal IT engineer.

I am a big traveler myself, I have traveled more than 30 countries and 100 cities. I loved the new experiences from traveling overseas. These experiences led me the path to be a delightful tour guide. I have lived in Seoul for 15 years and I have conducted all different kinds of tours from city tour, DMZ tour, Ski tour and so on for last four years.

I believe that I have shared all of my delightful and positive energy with all my guests. I do truly understand each moment and each day is so important for travelers, therefore I always do my best to make enjoyable and memorable moments with all guests.

Also people in Seoul are active, energetic and looking for the fun all the time. While you are wondering in Seoul, you will definitely taste the true color of South Korea. I will make sure to take you to places fun and safe from North Korea. (Which is. . everywhere! :D) Don't worry and just come, enjoy Korea!

A Recent Review of this guide

Hana (Heejin) is an amazing tour guide with a friendly nature and indepth knowledge of the Korean history, culture and political standing. She even managed to keep our two small children (6yrs & 8yrs) captivated in the North / South divide and ramifications. I highly recomend Hana as a guide for the DMZ tour and also the city tour of Seoul which we did the following day. We got to see so much over a short time and with zero stress. Hana is a real asset to Tours By Locals.

- I am not a driver. I can arrange for a separate car and driver upon request. But Seoul is easy to get around with an amazing public transportation system.
