Why you should be with Tour Guide Kay

1. Tour guide license

There is a certificate system for tourist guides in Korea. The license is given to people who have good communication skills in other languages and knowledge about Korean history and culture. I have this license and I never stop studying.

2. YouTuber introducing Korean culture and history

You may have heard and used the Korean word OPPA if you are interested in Korean culture, even just a little bit. But have you thought about what the exact meaning of the word is and where it is from? I am a YouTuber introducing Korean culture and history to whomever likes Korea. The knowledge I gain by doing the YouTube channel is going to be extremely useful when I guide you.

1. Travel management / Travel planning

The time to follow the same tour itineraries from tour companies is over. It is now time to follow your heart. Go where you want to go and do what you want to do. I basically make tours based on those needs.

2. Driving guide

One of the most difficult and complicated things during an overseas trip is transportation. No worries! I can drive a mini van (fit for small groups). The advantage of guiding and driving together is that we can go wherever, whenever, without any restrictions.

Private tour / Private guide

Today the form of travel has been changing from packaged tours to private tours. If you have experienced packaged tours before, you know the different inconveniences that can arise. You normally should follow a schedule which is made by a tour company which can include enjoying the tourist attractions in only a short time, and going to shopping centers, even if you don't want to go. I think these things lower the quality of your tours. Recently, people travel on a smaller scale with co-workers, family and partners; and they prefer to tour freely rather than follow a specific schedule made by a tour company.

Choosing a tour guide

It is the time to choose a tour guide instead of a tour company. Actually, as you probably know, Korea is a small country. All tour products from tour companies do not differ much in services because they make tours for this restricted area. Each tour company is trying to promote their own tour products, but the only difference is the tour fee. If the tour fee is high, they offer you a good hotel and good meals; but if the tour fee is low, the hotel and meals are going to be cheap. In this situation, what should we consider? The best option is a tour guide. However, you may make bad memories during your overseas trip if you spend a lot of time and money with a bad tour guide (unkind and insincere), even though you may have made a contract with a famous and well known tour company.

Kay was absolutely wonderful! He is a very caring and kind person who made sure that I was comfortable and happy. Since the weather was a bit cloudy in Seoul and Gyeongbokgung closed, he was flexible in adjusting our tour (one more market and Gyeongbokgung on the next day). He is knowledgeable about the places in Seoul. He made our trip fun, and I would definitely book Kay as a tour guide again!

5 stars Stephanie S. 22 Aug 2017

It was amazing! I was able to do a lot in one day. One of the stops we went to was Gyeongbokgung Palace, and it 's such a beautiful place to visit. The history is very interesting. It's a must-see. Also, I had never been on a private tour before, but it was one of the best experiences ever. Kay was so awesome and kind, and he literally catered the tour to my wants and interests. The toughest part was the fact that I'm vegan, but he knew exactly where to take me. I would recommend him to anyone!

Kay was my guide for 5 days in Seoul when I visited from New York City in October.

He is great to spend the day with, and knows exactly where to take you, even if your interests tend to be obscure. He's reliable, organized, and a good communicator. He met me at my AIRbnb and provided transportation when needed. He also showed me how to get around on my own using the subway etc, so that I could explore the city on my own. If you're looking for a unique, personalized time in Seoul, or just want to use your time more efficiently, I'd highly recommend Kay.
