We had a good 1 day visit of Seoul with our guide Juno. Gave us a good flavor of the city, history and people in about 8hours.

My group of six friends chose Top Korea for a private tour of Seoul. It was a day before their lunar New Year. At first, we didn’t know what to expect whether most of the places we want to see will be closed. But with our pleasant surprise, Miae of TK showed us around from seeing the Changing of the Guards still being celebrated in their Royal Palace to their traditional street market, the beautiful Hanok village and Jogyesa temple to the modern structure, Dongdamun Design Plaza. She took us to a great Korean BBQ for lunch that we enjoyed so much. Miae is a very personable and knowledgeable guide. She made our tour easy and comfortable-not rushed at all, giving us time to take it all in and have lots of photos. We felt like she’s more of a friend showing us around the city. I learned so much about the beautiful city, it’s culture and history and people in one day. I can’t wait to visit the city again and see other areas like Busan and Jeju island. I highly recommend Top Korea when you visit Seoul!

We had a wonderful tour in Seoul which gave us a great overview of the city. Miae was engaging and had great insight into the city and history of Seoul. She was able to answer any question posed to her about the history of the city and various landmarks we pointed out along the way. I would definitely recommend the tour and Miae.

The tour was extensive and worth every penny. Our guide, Juno, really put in the effort and accomodated us as much as possible. We learned not only about Seoul but about the life of the Koreans as well. Juno was very knowlegeable, and we could see he genuinely wanted to show us the best of Seoul, his city. Thank you, we highly recommend this tour.

I emailed Top Korea Tour about having a private day tour while in Seoul on a 12-hr layover. They were very responsive from the very beginning and were also very accommodating to our family of six. Juno was our guide and he was fantastic! Knowledgable, kind, accommodative, funny, safe driver in a clean van, good photographer, good English, etc, etc. It was a great experience to have Juno show us around Seoul for the day! His lunch choice was also fantastic! We had a really fun time for the day and actually wish we could have spent a few days there. We were sad to say goodbye to Juno! Thanks a lot for your service! Highly recommended to anyone.

Having Miae as our tour guide was the best decision for our recent Seoul trip. She took such good care of us and her attention to details was amazing. She was punctual, flexible and quick to come up with suggestions on places to visit when we had a change of mind on our original itinerary. We have never met a tour guide as hardworking and passionate as her. I will definitely recommend Top Korea especially Miae to anyone who needs a guide in Korea!

Our family of 5 (including 3 little children) signed up for a private central Seoul tour last week and had a blast! Our guide Juno was so informative and very fluent in English so that our entire family learned so much about this beautiful city full of history and charm. We got to see Gyeongbokgung Palace, Seoul Tower, Bukchon Hanok Village, Insadong, Gwangjang Traditional Market and Dynamic Maze all in one day! After checking out and walking a lot in each venue, being escorted in a comfortable minivan to the next destination was definitely nice. High recommend Juno and Top Korea Tour to anyone who wants to see central Korea with a very informative guide.

We had a great experience touring Seoul with Miae. She was friendly and knowledgeable. She let us set the pace and was even able to add on an extra spot. She was happy to answer all our questions about Korean history and culture.

This a great tour for those with limited time and want to hit the highlights of Seoul. Another positive is that there were no forced shopping stops.

Would highly recommend especially Miae.
