Kevin H.

Seoul, South Korea

Kevin's tour is "Happy together!, Timely not fast!, From the bottom of my heart!".

Hi, my name is Kevin (Byeong Ki) Hwang. I am professional private tour guide with official license by South Korean Government(=Korea Tourism Organization).

My tour is "like meeting a good friend who is living in South Korea". After a tour of mine, you may say "I have a good friend in Seoul. " and cherish the tour for many years. Especially Seoul Highlights Seoul Must See, DMZ, UNESCO Tours and Shore Excursion are perfect for visitors who are looking for attentative enjoyable tour, cultural insights into Korea or a shore excursion. So I want to be called "Culture Interpreter" . Eventhough I am changing our tour mode - historical, sincere, humorous, silent, talkative, lovely - destination by destination.

The tours listed here are just a sample of what I offer and 'customizing the tours for you' is my strong point. Just give me your interests and I will prepare your own Customized Tour.

They say that MY TOUR is 3S:
Smile = Happy together!
Speed = Timely not fast!
Sincerity = From the bottom of my heart!

Who is Kevin?
I'm just ordinary guy, born in Gyeongju, South Korea. I started to live in Seoul since 1985 and have been living here in Seoul and Incheon for 30+ years.

I am also a dedicated father, I am married, have 2 daughters. So I am always among women, and this makes me women-friendly! Ha Ha Ha :) My wife is an MA of teaching, and she is Seoul born and bred.

Why don't you meet Korean Friend driving mini Van with free Wi-Fi.

Bring along all your passports for DMZ or a few entrance discount.


Best Regards,

Kevin H.
