Bio

Welcome to South Korea!! I am Sung, a local expert guide in Seoul and Incheon (ocean city, 1 hour from Seoul). After managing events in the United Nations and NGOs in Switzerland, Tunisia, and Philippine, I have guided many tourists visiting Korea around K-pop streets | museums | filming spots, shopping areas, landmarks, markets, seasides, etc. Clients have truly appreciated my efficient tour routes, unique storytelling skills, and deep knowledge of local spots. They have valued me as a responsible, flexible, and pleasant guide who shows the best-hidden attractions and maximizes clients' needs as always.

I will show you around Seoul and Incheon's K-pop spots, shopping areas, landmarks, pretty towns, markets, and nature as well as local food and drink.

You can add or take out any destinations from itinerary (price will change relatively)! Time schedule & number of clients are flexible.
