Jay put together a great tour on the fly. At the last minute we decided not to go to Mt. Seorak, and instead went to closer in sights, including several royal tombs. He also gave a great tour of the National Museum which we decided to go to since it was pouring rain. Highly recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jacquelyn, Thanks for your good feedback even though we could not go to Mt. Seorak because of heavy rain. I really appreciated your generosity ! Hope to see you on clear day in Seoul again:) Jay

My husband and I toured around the Seoul area for three days with Jay, and we were very pleased with having him as our tour guide. He helped us plan our itinerary beforehand by giving suggestions and being flexible with our sightseeing ideas. Jay was well organized and knowledgeable. It was also very helpful for us to have Jay drive us to the airport at the end of our third day of touring.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Barbara, Time flies! Happy new year;) Jay

Jay met us at the airport at the designated area and he was early. It was only one day for a stop-over in Seoul. From the moment we met him, he was easy to relate to, took us to interesting areas and to places that we were interested in. He gave interesting information on history and sights and culture. We had a fabulous day with Jay. Jay is easy to talk to, he has an easy going nature, and he is a true professional. Easy to understand and a nice clean vehicle. We highly recommend Jay!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jennifer, Your couple was so kind and generous to me. You treat me like a friend and make me relaxed :) You comment makes me enjoyable. Hope to see your couple again one day! Thanks, Jay J.

Jay was responsive and timely from my first query. Jay listened and was flexible to ensure we got the most out of our short layover tour including the royal palace and shopping in Insadong. Jay's English language skills are excellent, his knowledge of Seoul and recommendations for shopping and eating experiences were spot on.

Jay is a very friendly and well english speaking guide and a good driver. He made our tour to DMZ a very memorable event and explained the history of the nation and the Korean War very well. All our visit to South Korea was a great experience.

Jay was a lovely guide. He arrived early & did a good job tailoring the tour for our kids. He provided interesting information about Seoul on the long drive from the airport into the city and along the way as we walked through the shopping district where our girls wanted to visit. The palace tour was great! We really enjoyed our day with Jay!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Michelle, You make me flattered. :) I also enjoyed the day with your family, especially with your daughters, Amanda and Lolen. Hope to see you again for longer days in Korea. Thanks again J

Jay could not have been more accommodating. He custom tailored the tour to our preferences and made our long layover in Seoul an absolute delight. He was funny, knowledgeable and knew the city like the back of his hand. While we very rarely do "tours", we prefer to see the sights on our own, this "tour" was well worth every penny we spent on it.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Steven, Thanks for your quick review. I feel flattered at your comment :) Let’s enjoy our life with others !

Jay was very flexible and knowledgeable. He can communicate with people of all levels - very senior executives to families. Has a wide range of options for tours. We didn't have enough time with Jay - we only had 2 hours, but it was well worth it. He also gave good recommendations for restaurants and options for our next visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Verdayne, I hope we can have more time when we meet again. Thanks for your positive feedback. Jay
