Chris H

Seoul, South Korea

Hi, My name is Hyosang or Chris and I am a Licensed tour guide since 1992.

Sometimes being in a foreign country can be daunting and overwhelming.

No one speaks your language, you have to figure out the map, the transportation, the money. While jet lag is still lingering, you are hoping to see as much as possible before your flight departs in a few days.

Relax! You have a reliable Tour Guide in Korea that can show you the ropes, help you plan your itinerary, and even take you on greatest tourist attractions in Korea!

I'm a fully licensed, professional tourist guide since 1992 in Korea, you need a special license issued by Korean governmental authorities to work as a tourist guide.

My passion has always been history and art, not only theoretically but also practically. I am an angler and a mountain trekker.

My spoken English is excellent, In my job I love to transfer my guests to the history and the traditions of Korea so that they can really feel it as if a true Korean feels it. The best way to enjoy Korea is to be local!!

Through countless times of tours, I am confident that I know much about tours in Korea. I know where tourists want to go, what they want to eat.
As I am getting older and older I come to know the meaning of "Vocation".

To me "vocation" means something you like, do better and the only one you can do.
I have been trying to love my job rain or shine and I know that I have to try to be happy when you want to be happy. All the travelers I've met and will meet, be happy and hopefully dominate your time.

"Life is too short to fill it with laughs and smile only"

" I'm only leaving you
for a handful of days,
but it feels as though
I'll be gone forever—
the way the door closes

behind me with such solidity,
the way my suitcase
carries everything
I'd need for an eternity
of traveling light.

I've left my hotel number
on your desk, instructions
about the dog
and heating dinner. But
like the weather front

they warn is on its way
with its switchblades
of wind and ice,
our lives have minds
of their own. "

A Recent Review of this guide

Chris was so nice, very informative and flexible. He is a good historian and an excellent tour guide. He made us feel comfortable even though we are in a different country. My 8 year old son never got board. If we get another chance to visit Korea, we'll book Chris again as our tour guide. We have so much fun. And he made our trip really memorable.
