I went to Korea with my friend for a month in April. Eungul Cho gave us advice that really helped us. He was able to help in many ways whether it was about where to eat or how to book train tickets. He answered very quickly and came to get us from the airport. He even helped us when we had trouble with buying wifi. Definetly going to contact him again when I go to Korea, very much recommended if you dont have any korean friends and you want to experience all sides of Korea.

We were in Seoul in May 2022 and went out at the end of our trip with Marc and a group of people from around the world near Ewah University and Sinchon. We went first for dinner and had a very delicious jjajangmyeon and he brought us then to a famous bingsu place . 🤤 We ended the evening souvenir shopping. Marc made very good recommendations of what we could bring back as souvenirs while giving us interesting informations about the neighborhood we went. 👍 We all had a very good time! Would recommend him to everyone who is going to Seoul. Thank you/Merci/Danke Marc 😁

Mark was an awesome tour guide! I was able to go on several tours around Seoul with Mark and enjoyed every one. He is very knowledgeable about the culture and the history of the city. He also helped me find some really great little hole in the walls that served awesome food! If you're looking to get the most out of your trip to Korea by finding the coolest and best kept secrets of the city then I definitely recommend reaching out to Mark!


Flordia, USA

Eungul showed my parents and I around Hongdae, he had lots of cool facts about the area to share! We had a great time, did a little walking tour, sat on the grass having a drink and then he took us to a great Korean BBQ restaurant! Thoroughly recommend Eungul as a tour guide.

Mark is a down to earth and friendly guy who is very passionate about his city and culture. As a foreigner currently based in Seoul, I can count on Mark to know the best places to eat which are only known by locals. These small eateries which I would have not looked twice at and passed by on the street, are some of the best and most authentic food in Seoul. Mark is great at organisation, and will make sure you have a great experience!
