Young Y.

Seoul, South Korea

Greetings from Seoul! My name is Young, Traveling and performing private tours for family and friends is what originally inspired me to become a private tour guide.

While exploring different cities around the world, I discovered that I learned so much more about the people, the culture, and the city itself, when I had a local guide to show me around.

Now, I am excited to offer that same type of warm, local guide experience to you in Korea!

I was born and raised in Seoul and I know this city like the back of my hand. I can tell you the past and present story of the place. I offer a memorable and informative experience to all my clients.

As you can see in my photo album, I have met many good people from all over the world and became their friend since I started working as a private tour guide in 2010.

As a local private guide, I will help you to "see", rather than to simply look, to "listen", rather than to simply hear. I will make you fall in love with the places we visit and and appreciate every moment spent on tour in my Korea!

My specialty is offering personalised tours to discerning travelers to Korea. I will make a program individually tailored for you and your interests. My tours are highly customisable and flexible to meet your requests.

All ages are welcome to join me! I am great with everyone from 9 months to 99 years young!

Let's go together! Let me show you the real exotic beauty of Korea!

See you on tour!

A Recent Review of this guide

Young was an incredible guide for us in Seoul. He speaks fantastic English, knows the city very (very) well, and is incredibly flexible. His knowledge of Korean history is especially remarkable. We spent days visiting many historical and national landmarks and museums; Young's guidance made it so much better than sight-seeing on our own. We never went hungry. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner we always tried something new and unique to Korea. It was delicious! I would recommend Young to anyone visiting Seoul.
