    Tour guide Yeoni was extremely informative providing great details and info about the places that we visited.
    Tour guide Yeoni also provided additional info not on our itinerary, such as places to shop and eat and sight seeing.
    Yeoni is great and helpful.

    Our first time in Seoul and I was on a mission to find the best Korean skincare with a local's expertise. We met "Chiti" who is such a kind and sweet person. She helped me shop around, explore the street food and took us to the most delicious restaurant we would have never found on our own. She extended the "tour" and just hung out at a bar because we were having such nice conversation. It was fascinating to learn about her culture and life in Korea. Our experience with her really touched our hearts.

    There are several night shopping locations in Seoul. If you want to shop for cosmetics, the Myeongdong area is the most suitable place because in this region there are so many famous cosmetic brands and hundreds of shops where each brand can have more than one store. The experience of learning cosmetics in July (summer) is a perfect time because this month there are so many discounts. My advice for learning cosmetics in myeongdong should be able to compare prices first because don't regret the items you buy are more expensive. My advice for shopping for cosmetics at Myeongdong is cheaper, you can get it in the underground shopping center to Myeongdong Station. there is one store that sells cosmetics and is quite complete at a cheaper price. So if you know what you want to buy, you can compare prices in the store.

    If you are looking for fashion products, you can go to the Dongdaemun area located near the Dongdaemun design plaza called APM (open at 8pm) and the surrounding area. When I was there at the weekend and was very lucky I found one area (if you are on the right side of Dongdaemun Plaza, go straight to meet traffic light turn right, straight then) like a shocked market and seems to only open on weekends. There will find a shopping paradise for clothes that are sold very cheaply (when I get the price of one men's formal dress for 1000 won). Goods sold starting from clothes, pants, sportswear, shoes, sandals, and so on. So don't regret if you buy clothes at the mall then shop in the market.
    For fashion shopping at low prices you can also find in the area around the university such as Hongdae University, Ehwa University

    My advice is if you go to Seoul in July, cosmetic shopping is the right time

    We had a slight hiccup with times first up but that was easily fixed. We met our tour guide Gabby in the lobby of our hotel and she was so warm and friendly!
    It was just my Dad and I on the tour so with it just being us, Dad was able to ask ALL the questions he could think of. We were both really impressed with Gabby’s knowledge and her English was really good! Gabby took her time to explain things to us and also didn’t rush us through. My Dad has bad knees from an old sporting injury so isn’t the fastest walker but Gabby didn’t mind and was happy to slow the pace a bit.
    We got to see all the main palaces and shrines and a couple of the key shopping places.
    We really enjoyed our day out with Gabby and highly recommend this tour! If you can ask for Gabby, she is a wealth of knowledge!

    I had the pleasure of being escorted by Brian on the Hallyu tour. It was a full day tour and he was polite, attentive and accommodating throughout the day. I mentioned that I am a BTS fan and he changed the lunch location to a place where the Bangtan boys often ate while training. Fun!
