Our team booked a private tour and was amazed! Prof Mason is extremely knowledgeable in Korea culture, history, politics as well as being really in tune to new happening and trends. He is friendly, very humorous and able to weave facts and anecdotes together into an interesting tale; and his wide knowledge base and worldview allowed him to link different KR events with happenings in world history and contrast Korean culture with other Asian culture. Touring the sights with him was such an absolute joy and educating experience -- we didn’t want the tour to end! Worth every penny and more, 10/10 will revisit privately and do the tour with my family!
Couldn't ask for a more knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide than David. He's deeply immersed in his subject and clearly loves sharing his knowledge -- the Perfect Teacher, a treasure as a docent. You're lucky to have him on the Seoul Context team! And we're lucky that you do!
Hana is amazing. Enthusiastic, intelligent, fun, energetic, insightful. She opened our eyes to Seoul that we never could have experienced without her. She went beyond to answer our questions. She shared facts about the history, culture, social issues, and everyday living in Seoul. I can say enough wonderful thinks about her,
