Our tour guide Hana (Heejin S) is great! She is creative, fun and speak and understand perfect English! She is quite respectful and definitely quite creative ensuring that we enjoy our tours. She is highly recommended.
Hana gave an excellent tour based on our wishes to visit historical places as well as the modern Seoul. With great knowledge and a very service minded approach Hana made our day enjoyable and memorable. Her guiding skills cover everything from old Korean history to which restaurants to choose. During the day we had some requests on the fly and Hana solved them smoothly and with a smile. I can highly and warmly recommend Hana as your guide in Seoul. You will not be disappointed. Best regards, Johan
My rating of Hana is five stars and nothing else. She was excellent as a guide and very nice and pleasant as a person

Hana (Heejin) is one of those people you hope for but never actually expect to find. She is a consummate professional, going above and beyond without hesitation - creating custom plans for us and working to accommodate every sightseeing request. She also made sure there was full satisfaction with each experience and didn't stop giving until that was the case. Beyond all that, she is a genuinely wonderful human being. Her kindness, easy going nature, and pure authenticity were treasured beyond words.

I highly recommend Hana to anyone going to Seoul. Her English is perfect, she is flexible, vivacious, thorough, and lots of fun to be with. She took us on a fun day trip out of the city after the day trip planned was not possible. She showed us historical sights, shopping areas and neighborhoods, different eating experiences and much more. If we go again I will contact her . Arnold Heirshberg
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kind feedback. I did enjoy the time with you, I wish I had more time though. Hope to see you again! Stay well and take care. - Hana
We are so happy we chose Hana as our guide for our first time in Korea. She is easy to get along with, stayed well beyond our tour time to take us back to our hotel & she is a fantastic photographer. =) Hana also answered all our questions with patience & candor and in the end it felt more like meeting a new friend rather than a business transaction. We highly recommend!
Today we had our wonderful tour through Seoul with our tour guide Hana. Days before, she already get in contact with us to figure out what we like most. We have had a really pleasant day with a perfect mix of culture and adventure (for the kids). She was so lovely the whole day and took care of us (especially the kids), that we all had a beautiful day. We can highly recommend Hana and would book her tours again. For us, it is like finding a new friend in Seoul, we hope to see her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Christian, Thank you for the sweet review and the comments. I also had a wonderful day exploring Seoul with your family. Especially 'Team King' part was the best! Haha. Please stay well in China, and if you come back Korea please let me know so I can look up for Taekwondo event for Max! :D All the best, Hana

The energy, sites, food, and history of Seoul are self-evident. Our time with Hana, however, was the true highlight of our experience. Hana is our long-time, good friend whom we met for the first time, yesterday. The sites and experiences she shared were those that she genuinely enjoys. The lessons in Korean history, back-alley "newtro", retro-industrial retail, adventures in local cuisine, Bugaksan Mountain and Han River hikes were all framed by her humanity, openness, and warmth. Hana is a gem.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Seth, Thank you so much for choosing and being with me. The time we spent together was absolutely priceless! I wish I could show you the city more and outside of the city as well. Hopefully next time you visit Korea again, let's explore cool places together! :D

My wife and I had a great time during the tour with Hana. Her English is excellent and she is very knowledgeable about stories behind different sites. She has a bright personality and will light up your day.
Jean KimUnited States
Hana was a great guide. She was very knowledgeable about all things in Seoul. She took us for a walking tour all day Saturday and then took us hiking on Sunday morning to Bukhasan mountain and knew exactly how to take us up to the peak and back. Hana spoke English fluently and was able to help explain some of the cultural differences that we had encountered so far during our trip. Hana also gave us a lot of tips on where to go that was off the beaten path. I highly touring w Hana!

Heejin (Hana) is an excellent local guide! This is my first solo trip abroad and Heejin was always prompt to reply and have helpful tips during the communication process. She knew what to do and where to go and also had knowledge of the history and culture (and pop culture) whenever I have questions. We were able to finish our itinerary on time and even got to see more. She speaks English fluently. The best thing was that it felt like I was just travelling with a friend I had known for a long time!
Michael LarkinUnited States
Hana was terrific. She helped us to know and appreciate Seoul and Korean culture and history. She took us to a fabulous dumpling restaurant and a traditional tea house with the most awesome cold fruit teas. Most importantly, Hana's warmth and kindness made us feel as if we were traveling with a very close friend. It was a wonderful day. Jane and Mike L.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your sweet comment. I am so glad that you enjoyed the day and the traditional tea! It was great time with you indeed. :D I hope you liked Korean wedding, wish for your fun trip to Busan! Take care. Hana
Jonathan FrenchOcala, FL, United States
Hana was terrific. Our morning was filled with rain and Hana adapted our tour such that the rain barely effected us. She asked all kinds of questions about us so that she knew what we wanted to do. She was easy to engage with and made us very comfortable. One person said, "she was more than a tour guide. She was a friend showing us around." We all agree! Her knowledge of the culture and history was fantastic. Our group's ages ranged from 19-47. and she connected with everyone. A perfect tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Having you and your family was such a pleasure. THANK YOU for sharing your moments with me in Korea. I hope we can see each other again! And we will! :D Until that day... take care. Hana
David NakanishiUnited States

I thoroughly appreciated her local perspective, opinions and commentary throughout my visit. Thanks again Hanna, David from the Seattle
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your feedback David. I also had a great time sharing our culture, history, and food with you. I hope you got some inspiration for your hand craft work (kayak) from Korea! :) All the best, Hana
Suzanne SuttonUnited States
Hana was a truly wonderful and accommodating guide. She catered my tour to the times that I was available and enabled me to see everything that I had requested, including a restaurant from a K-drama show that I very much wanted to try. I would definitely call upon her again when I come back to Korea.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I appreciate for your feedback. The time with you was so much fun and the oyster restaurant we went was so good. Haha. Hope to see you again! Take care. :)
Luis MorenoSomerton, AZ, United States
Hannah was really great from the start of my tour. The tour began in a local coffee shop where Hannah carefully explained the itinerary of the tour. She unfolded a map of Seoul and pointed out each location that we were going to visit. As we moved along each site, Hannah talked about the history of each location and answered all the questions I had with superb knowledge. Hannah has a great personality and is really fun to talk with. I highly recommend her for touring South Korea. Thank you Hannah!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Luis! You are the amazing traveler! I truely enjoyed the tour with you and hope to see you again someday too. :) Take care!
Hana was a delight to be with, she was patient, informative and really good with suggestions re sort of shopping Wendy was interested in. She managed to find all the good options. I would highly recommend having her as your guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr.Boon. It was great pleasure to have you and Wendy. I loved hearing the history from you and enjoyed shopping as well! I hope you can take another great vacation soon.

Far and away the best guide I have ever come across. Polite, friendly and very knowledgeable. Her food knowledge of Seoul is outstanding! Very patient and made the day fly by!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your passionate feedback! I was really happy to show you all around Seoul includes the hidden spots and enjoyed small talks with all gentlemen. I hope you have got great memories only from Korea. Hope to see you again when you come back with your family. And please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions about traveling Korea!
Amber IsakUnited States
Hanging out with Hana for the day was honestly like meeting up with an old friend...she was SO friendly & used the short time my sister and I had for our layover tour (~6 hrs) to the fullest packing in a couple meals, the Palace, and walking through a traditional neighborhood and a couple markets without ever feeling rushed. She provided lots of info @ Seoul during our drives to/from the airport & was fun and funny. We could not have asked for a better way to spend our layover! Hana is highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Amber! It was so much fun with you and Misty. I wish we had more time to share more jokes and more memories though. I hope you are having great time with your kids, cat and clean air. Also hope they are all healthy by now. Thanks again for the great feedback.

polite, punctual, knowledgeable, problem-solving, enthusiastic, understanding of our age and our desire to see everything at our pace which was committed but not always as quick as a 30-year-old��. we loved her company .
