What you'll do

Whenever I travel to another country, I would love to study and feel the history of that place. Gyeongbokgung Palace is perfect because it's the main palace of the 5 palaces inside Seoul. Gyeongbok Palace is the center of Korean history. The king named the palace, which means that the new dynasty would enjoy great blessings. We will move on to Bukchon hanok village, a very historical and traditional site. Here you can find five hanoks (Traditional Korean homes) which have survived years of modernization in Seoul and have been relocated and restored. Also, you can see a lot of furniture Korean people used to use. While we walk this area, I will show you points of interest and explain what makes them important. Then for dinner, we will eat in a local restaurant. We will finish up our exploration of the city when I will take you to Gwanghwamun Station (subway line 5) or Jonggak Station (subway line 1).

Justin

Hello! My name is Justin! I really like to meet tourists from around the world and talk to them. I have traveled to over 25 countries, so I feel comfortable meeting anyone from anywhere. Learning about all the people who I've met on my travels was a precious experience for me. Now, I run a tour company that introduces Korean culture and life to people who visit Korea. I love introducing newcomers to all the amazing things Korea has to offer! I have met more than 200 tourists, and everyone who explores the city with me seems to really enjoy it. I think the most important thing about showing people around is the guide's sincerity. So that makes me a perfect fit, since I love this city and want to introduce everyone to it. I will do my best to make your trip magic.
