Jongmyeong was an excellent tour guide! My partner and I have been on other walking tours in the world, and Jongmyeong was one of the best!

Definitely book a tour with him and take the time to learn about Seoul from a different perspective.

Genuinely the Best free walking tour in Seoul. Jongmyeong did the tour for me alone because I was the only guy to show up. He was fun to be around and knowledgeable, gave me some cool recommendations. Highly recommend, great stuff!

The tour was very nice. We saw the main palace and some of both the old and the new city. Our guide was nice and told us many things about history. He also readily answered our questions about modern daily Korean life and culture. Definitely a tour to recommend!
