Personalized concierge in Seoul

Not your typical tour agency.

What to Expect

A totally personalized experience in Seoul like no one else can offer.

This is a 100% customizable experience that you personally choose. Just tell me what kinds of foods you want to eat, what kinds of drinks you would like to have, and the types of places you want to go. Well, I’ll actually do most of that for you. Haha.

Just shoot me a message to give me some general details of what you would like to do. I will give you all the options so that you will get everything that you want during your stay here in Korea. There are set tour options as well. I currently run the "Old Skool Tour" as a public tour on most days of the year, and it will cover most of what you are looking to do. Book the "5 Hour - Public" tour and write "Old Skool Tour" in the details section. 

Most of the tours are walking tours so make sure you wear comfortable shoes (and loose pants lol).

Currently, I have been getting many bookings so my calendar may not be up-to-date. PLEASE send me a message before booking because during the tourist high seasons, I typically DO NOT take private bookings of less than 7 people. If you do book without messaging me first, I will not be able to send you a 100% refund on your booking due to the commission/transaction fees.

Hey Guys!

this is Mike, from Seoul, South Korea.

I just wanted to tell you a little about myself and what I’m about. I’m a Korean-born, American-raised guy who’s been living in Korea for 15 years. I know the culture and language very, very well because I grew up very Korean.

I will be taking you to places that you wouldn’t normally be able to find through Google. I am not your normal tour guide. I am not here to take you to 5-star restaurants, but instead amazing food, at even more amazing prices.

I could take you to those places if you want, but let's save that for a different day. I want you to experience how the locals eat, without spending a fortune.

And trust me, there's plenty of good food at a more than reasonable price.

My main focus is food and drinks! I will take you to the best of the best. Just tell me what you're looking for and I will do my best to arrange a fun day/night out on the town.

I’m not here to walk you through a tour to the DMZ. If you really want to, feel free to Google that or book it yourself on this site here (no commissions from me, it's just not my thing).

I will help you to get a public transportation card and learn the transportation system. I will assist you in getting a temporary SIM card if you would like to use your phone while you are here.

I am here to be your translator, tour guide, and personal concierge. I am here to provide a service that no other “tour guide” can do for you. I am knowledgeable, professional, and just an all around fun guy (or so I like to think). I am here to be your friend, not just your tour guide. Just think of me as a good old friend that just happens to be living in Seoul. I want to take you around just as I would my own friends. I have made many friends through this service and I still keep in contact with most of them to this day.

I am here, at your service.


You're not alone, people have been asking.

You can transfer me the money through the PayPal account when you book your service with me.

You can contact me through my contact page here.  I will respond back to you as soon as I can. (Please understand the time difference)

Please send me the name of the hotel and the address and I will come to you directly or we can meet at central location according to your comfort.

Send me a general idea of what you would like to do for the day and I will personally plan an itinerary or we can discuss it in person when you arrive.

That's it? No, but the other stuff makes me sad. It covers cancellations, refunds, policies, and other boring but probably important things. Please do check it out, just make it quick and get back to the good stuff. GO HERE

Expectations for visitors / guests
