  1. Daphney-Stavroula Zois

    Da*** Z***     

    Very nice tour. The driver was very pleasant and helpful. We highly recommend for anyone who wants to see places around Seoul without the hassle of trying to figure out how to go around.

  2. Renzo Meneghetti

    Re*** M***   Switzerland 

    to recommend! Very good information about the country and its people. Well done for us.

  3. Danny Kunto Wibisono

    On-time schedule, cabin car clean, the driver friendly

  4. Ma*** H***     

    Wonderful trip of Seoul ! Our guide Mary was knowledgeable and efficient tour guide. Highly recommend.

  5. Cheada Lao

    Ch*** L***   United States (US) 

    We had a suburb day with our guide Philip! The weather was a bit unpredictable so we went with the flow and focus our attention on what we really wanted to see, do and get done (we needed to get some souvenirs, including Koop items out of the way). Not only was our guide flexible, very welcoming, but also extremely helpful. And besides speaking great English (bc he’s been loving his job for over 20 years), he goes out of his way to make sure you enjoy every moment of your tour. And on top of that, he carried all my shopping bags during shopping and escorted me and my son to the hotel lobby. Talk about outstanding service you can’t get anywhere else in the world! For those of you traveling to South Korea, make sure to book here! Not only do I highly recommend it, I’ll also book with them again (in fact, I have another private tour with his colleague Jason tomorrow for DMZ).

  6. Ta*** G***     

    the driver was very good, the car was clean. I would like to have water for long trips in the car. unfortunately, the car in Seoul was not needed, everything can be done on foot and faster on the subway. I will no longer book a transfer for the Seoul tour. in 10 hours we used the car for only 2 hours, the rest of the time the driver was waiting for us.

    • KoreaTravelEasy    

      Hello, thank you so much for your valuable feedback. It is true that some locations are easy to reach on foot, especially within Seoul but we recommend our private tour service for those who would like to be more comfortable and not worry about directions or public transportation. We hope you got to enjoy the city. Thank you

    We had a great tour with Phillip. He arrived on time at our hotel, was very knowledgeable & funny! He suggested the itinerary & it worked really well for us. He always made sure we were comfortable & safe. Excellent English & very careful driver. Definitely will recommend him for tours!

    • KoreaTravelEasy    

      Thank you for letting us know!
      We are very glad to know yo had a great time with your guide. We will surely let him know about your kind words. 🙂

    Mr. Jeong was a wonderful driver. We had a great time and saw different neighborhoods. Highly recommend!

  12. Renan Galang

    Re*** G***   Philippines 

    We had Taylor again as our guide and driver, and again he was very prompt and helpful. We went to the village, the palace and myeongdong area. Each place we stopped he helped us get around and provided background. He also diligently answered our questions. For lunch, we asked for a Korean barbecue place and we were not disappointed. Bit expensive, but very good. We opted to skip Seoul tower, as the kids were quite tired, and Taylor adjusted and just dropped us off at the hotel. Excellent service, highly recommended.

  13. Jennifer Bulaon

    Je*** B***   United States (US) 

    Our group thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide/driver , James, spoke English very well so that it was very easy to communicate with him. He was a great guide, very knowledgeable and told the stories in a way which made it more interesting. He was patient and made everyone feel comfortable. He was also a great photographer, often taking candid shots of our group and immediately sharing it with us. Although we had a set itinerary, James was very flexible with any changes and even better, made suggestions. We did the hanbok experience, walked only a part of Gyeongbokgung(due to time constraints), ate at a local restaurant in Insadong recommended by James and did a quick stop at Bukchon Hanok Village followed by delicious coffee and dessert at The Coffee Prince Coffee Shop (recommended by James). Restaurant and cafe were great! Feeling tired from the activities, our group opted to skip Namsam tower and walked Hongdae Street instead. There was a minor mishap on the way back to the hotel. Our van had struck a bus from behind. No one was hurt, thankfully. James was very apologetic and kept offering to take us to the hospital if needed. Of course, we assured him that we were all fine. Later, I was contacted by Amy of KoreaTravelEasy. She had emailed, called and messaged me , wanting to make sure that we were fine… fabulous customer service! We were impressed with KoreaTravelEasy and highly recommend them to anyone.

    Our driver Hak Ju Jang really made this experience wonderful! He was such a fantastic driver and we really enjoyed spending the day with him. Great car, great driver, and he really knows how to make things easy for you! Next time we come to Korea, we’re definitely using Korea Travel Easy and requesting Jang!

    We did a second day trip, with Jasmine. Similar to day 1, we had a great time and jasmine helped make sure we could visit the places and k drama filming locations we want, and the food we wanted to eat, in the day. Our wishlist was rather long! Jasmine was helpful and helped recommend a good cosy restaurant for our lunch, and helped us take plenty of memorable family photos together. Have rated this 4-Star as the vehicle was somewhat cramped for our group of six pax. But the smooth proceedings of the day trip made up for it!

  21. Ai Ling Low

    Ai*** L***   Singapore 

    Our guide Jasmine was great and took effort to accommodate our customized one day trip. A number of places we picked were filming locations which are not the usual tourist spots. We had quite a number of places we wanted to visit and Jasmine made sure we get to see what we wanted and try the foods we wanted. She made sure we were not disappointed and was helpful throughout. She also gave suggestions to a few good locations for lunch. Only thing is that the vehicle was somewhat cramped for our group of six pax but the smooth proceedings and us being able to see places we want, made up for it. Hence I’ve rated this 4 stars
