    This was the most fun I have had since arriving in South Korea. Jin our tour guide is knowledgeable, friendly and kind. I felt comfortable with him for the entire day as well as my niece. I honestly feel like I have made a life long friend and you will as well. Book this tour you will not be disappointed.

    We had a great time on this tour. Our guide, Don, was on-time, friendly and knowledgeable. We never would have packed in so many locations in one day on our own. We saw the city, learned a bit about history and culture and tried some new food. I recommend it!

    True essence of Seoul with a local who make you feel like family

    Our guide David was an absolute gem! He was both professional and personal, informative, and a pleasure to be around. By the end of the day, we felt like we were being shown around the city by an old friend! The food stops along the way were so delicious and such a treat. David pointed us toward all the tastiest menu items and of course communicated with the restaurants’ staff on our behalf, taking out the guesswork for us and making the whole experience a breeze. All we had to do was show up and enjoy ourselves! David was also so adept at helping us understand the culturally and historically significant DETAILS of the many stops we made. If we’d been travelling alone, we’d likely have spent much of our time saying to ourselves, “well, that looks interesting” or “I wonder what that means?” Thanks to David’s expertise and excellent communication, we were able to get knowledgeable answers to our many questions and truly learn about Korean history and culture. Thank you, David, for sharing your home and your time with us! You’ve given us beautiful memories of South Korea to carry home with us, and you will always be an essential part of them!

    The best experience of Seoul!!

    I was very apprehensive before the tour, as I had paid a lot of money and would be doing it alone. However, David was the best tour guide I could ask for. He was very knowledgable, patient and good to talk to. Being a solo traveller, I felt like I had made a new friend :) The first place we went to was Gyeongbokgung Palace where we saw the changing of the guard traditional ceremony, which was a fascinating experience. When we went to the Ginseng Chicken restaurant and many of the restaurants in the market, David offered me plenty of chances to taste a range of Korean cuisine. We also headed to Changdeokgung Stream and Jogyesa Temple, which were both beautiful places to walk along and visit. David was really accomodating throughout the tour and is a good photographer! :) I really wish I could re-live the experience again, as I made a true friend :)

    I had a great experience with Bergen! He really knows the history and seems he really loves what he does. I would highly recommend Bergen for any of the tours (he has many) he provides. Thanks again Bergen!

    Bergen was very helpful and communicated frequently prior to booking, I am a foodie and requested some adjustments to the itinerary and he was very happy to accommodate. I was so happy that I booked several other custom tours with Bergen. Highly recommend the tour and Bergen overall!
