Song, our tour guide, is very accommodating and polite. I like how he shares with us, without being too hard sell, the way of like of the Koreans.
Excellent tour

We did a private tour for our stay in Soeul with my husband and 4 year old child. Our tour guide was very accommodating and took us to a special kids police museum which my son loved. Our guide was also very knowledgeable about all the places we went to, he really knows Korean history. I highly reccomend this tour

The best part of this tour was our very polite, patient and informative guide. We traveled with our 8 year old son and our guide recommended bow & arrow making at Hanok Village, a tae kwon-do demonstration and shops at Insadong which he felt were interesting for our son. His English and sense of humor were easy to understand, we invited him to join us for lunch and we shared food & laughter. Without a tour guide our time would have been lengthened due to not knowing where to park or where to go. His knowledge was enough for us to understand without too much unnecessary detail. Highly recommend!

My husband and I booked this tour on line the night before and we received the confirmation immediately via email. Our personal guide met us at the hotel at the appointed time in an air conditioned and very comfortable mini van. He reviewed his planned itinerary and asked concurrence or if any preferred changes. I informed him of our physical limitations and he understood exactly because throughout the tour he was sensitive to our comfort. He spoke excellent English, was very informative giving background information / history of the site we visited. We told him that we wanted to experience traditional Korean cuisine and took us to a quaint Korean restaurant for lunch; the food was not something we could usually find and was absolutely delicious. At the various sites we visited there was opportunity to stop and sit to enjoy refreshments [coffee, tea or cold drink at our leisure] all the while asking our guide other clarifying questions about Korea and it's people - something I enjoyed so much. He dropped us off at the hotel at the end of the tour. The entire experience from booking, pick up and return - the entire duration of the tour was smooth and very pleasant - If you want to control your tour yourself and not have to deal with the parameters of a group environment, I recommend this personal guided tour highly. It certainly was well worth the money spent.
