Seoul, Seoul, Korea, South Korea

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!

I have a Kia Carnival van that can fit 7 people maximum and have a safe driving record.

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
