Chris was a great host! I reached out to Chris via WhatsApp the night before our tour and confirmed our trip — he confirmed everything and was there waiting for us when we exited customs. We hopped in the van and Chris customized our trip to fit our schedule and preferences. After some sight seeing and shopping, Chris made reservations for us and was extremely attentive during the meal. I can't say enough great things about Chris and the entire trip. I encourage anyone visiting seoul to book Chris!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for nice rating and review on my service. Hopefully you had a great family time in Seoul.
Chris was very knowledgeable about the sites and history of the city. He was also very flexible when we had to change plans due to circumstances in the city. The real and hidden Seoul tour was wonderful and something I would never have had a chance to see. Chris made the most of our time together and answered all my questions. Thank you and kind regards Julie Bray
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Appreciate your nice review and rating.

Chris (the Godfather of Seoul) was an excellent guide and driver as he met us at the dock and then toured us around Seoul; very knowledgeable. His choice for lunch was excellent in a local restaurant. He helped us order foods quite typical of Seoul. His English is quite good. If you select him as your guide, ask him to play "Cash Cab" on your drive back to the port. He was slot of fun--enjoyable day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Maybe you are talking about James Brown, the godfather of Soul.. but I like it. Oh..by the way, after I closed account you still owe me KRW500 from the game.. Next time you're here you give it back.. Kidding..! It was pleasant also to me.. It was a wonderful moment. Thank you

Hyosang is an excellent tour guide. We could not go to the DMZ since the third tunnel was closed, but Hyosang took us seamlessly to the Palaces, village and very busy city, an excellent lunch in the food market, shopping and anything else we could have wanted.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your rating and kind review.

Hyosang created a unique customized tour that along with his knowledge and flexibility was able to make on the spot change requests and make it a bucket list checking experience for grandparents, super fun for a trio of energetic boys (ages 6, 7, and 10) and provide an album full of photos for their parents. We all thank Hyosang for the wonderful experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for rating and review. Icheon is very fascinating city and glad to know that you enjoyed and had a lot of good memories.

Chris was an excellent tour guide! He was informative and gave good historical background. He tried to teach our kids with their short attention spans. I learned a lot and hopefully kids learned something!

Robert WaddinghamUnited Kingdom
Excellent and knowledgeable guide. Very interesting tour learning about Korean Shamanism. Note that this tour if only really for those with a special interest as not all places can be accessed and no guarantees of seeing activities. Chris will go out of his way to do his best though!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert It was also very interesting moments whenever I find authentic local experiences fading away from main streams of Korean society. Thank you!
Kari NoomenUnited States
We had a great time with Chris. Very knowledgeable and took us to top sites as well as secret sites we would have never found out about. Chris made the most of our time together and answered all our questions and was an expert on Korea
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kari Thanks for your review and rating. Actually the weather today was very nice and blessing. Sometimes we need to make some changes to circumstances today was the day in which we indulge ourselves in glorious view of the city. Chris
Cynthia SheppardUnited States
We toured with Chris for 2 full days. We were a party of 2 grandparents, 2 parents and 3 challenging young kids. Chris handled our itineraries perfectly, as we wanted to completely change the second day's plan due to rain. We saw everything we needed to see—2 markets, one palace, secret garden, Buddhist temple, hatong village, Korean War Museum, Lotte World, Insa-dong, and the Korean National Museum. I must say that with our very "high maintenance" group he was super accommodating and professional.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cynthia It was my pleasure to be a part of your family members and I am alreadt missing princess and prince. Thanks for your rating and review. Chris
Jeremy SmilgUnited Kingdom

Ann KruseUnited States
We had an outstanding time on two tours with Chris, both customized to our needs and interests. In this tour, he arranged sights for us to see outside of Seoul, on our final day in South Korea, dropping us off at Incheon for our flight home. He took us places that were off the normal tourist routes, which is exactly what we like.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ann, I wondered if you would like this tour and feel safe to hear that you enjoyed it. You were the only foreigners there and I was little bit nervous about this trip known to locals only. Thank you very much for your review and rating. Hyosang L.

Chris was a fantastic guide! Even with the extremely cold weather, he still braved the cold while making sure that I was comfortable throughout the entire day. He is knowledgeable, honest and direct which is refreshing and is comfortable sharing information and insights to present the "real" Korea (a balanced view). I recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your rating and sorry about enormously cold weather(-10 c. Degree).

Elliott BaimUnited States
Destination too overwhelmed with tourists. More an amusement park than politically important site Guide was rude. Yelled instructions to people with other guides. Kept muttering complaints. Gave unsolicited political opinions. Made racial slurs against Japanese. He was all around obnoxious.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: 1. Nowadays DMZ here in Korea have been over crowded due to hot issues going on between North, Sout and US and furthermore it was Saturday morning, weekend. 2. Yes.... DMZ is also one of most favored tourist sites and also there is literally very small amusement park for kids. 3. I yelled Chinese tour guide whose group always late to tour bus 4. I explained about Korean peoples' sentiment toward Japanese people 5. complaints about your hotel Sorry for my being abnoxious.
