Taylor did a great job taking us around to both historic and local spots. We had already gone to one of the places he had planned so he quickly adapted to fit our needs. Great tour!

Taylor was a fantastic guide. Very knowledgeable and passionate about Korean history, and packed so much into our 8 hour tour. From an amazing lunch to very descriptive explanations of the sites and answering our many random questions, we had an amazing time. It was more than we expected and we will definitely try to book with him again when we visit for longer!
Taylor made our trip!

Finished our tour with Taylor and were so grateful for the experience. Taylor was extremely knowledgable and passionate about Korean history and was prompt at picking us up at Seoul Station since we were only in town for a long layover. He made sure we saw as much as possible in our limited time and made sure we were back in time for our flight. Not to mention the amazing little spot he took us to for lunch! We really didn’t think we’d see much during our trip but we were able to see everything we wanted. When we come back for a longer visit, we will definitely try to book with him again.
A wonderful tour in Korea

Brian was our guide for our 4days tour trip. He was attentive and thoughtful towards us and would always checked with us whether the temperature heating in the car was warm enough and whether we nerd to stop for food & beverage. We had an enjoyable and safe tours with him and he was kind enough to be accommodating to us when we change our plan last minute. We are looking forward to have Brian again the next time we are back in Korea!
