Let’s plan your trip by yourself, customized tour to Seoul.

When you plan to visit Korea or Seoul, where do you get information about Seoul? Are you using travel agency to find out package program or group tour?

Because of busy schedule of daily life and simple way to book a trip, I also usually use travel company to plan my golden holidays. But as you know, it cannot fully satisfy my needs and pleasure, whenever I arrived in those kind of tour places. So I think about many times to changes travel plan.

As I live here in Seoul about 35 years, I really know well about this interesting city.  I know many foreign travelers who visit Korea don’t really enjoy well. They go same places and take similiar pictures. How about changing the travel route. You can go to local fish market instead of department store. You can use subway or city bus, not a taxi. Or you can go to sea and forest to enjoy nature of Korea.

And while you are visiting Seoul you want to buy some Korean product. So I can buy it for you using online shop or internet market, if your schedule is enough to receive those products. 

I’ll summarize how can I help your travel.
