We spent two days on our tour of Seoul with Matt. He provided our group of four with two solid days of interesting and insightful information about Seoul and South Korea. Matt also helped chose delicious local restaurants.

First of all, i would like to thank the whole admin team at This is Korea for their prompt and professional way when we were at the planning phase of my tours. Thank you both, Albert and Gray.

I had a 3 day tour in Jeju and a 2 day tour in Seoul.

Jeju - My TS, Jennifer was a very knowledgeable guide. I am very inquisitive person and things which i observed n have doubts on, i always like to clear them. Amazingly, every single question i had for Jennifer she would explained to me and if she is not sure, she would go to the extra mile to find out for me. For instance, in one of the caves in Jeju, i noticed that there were what looks like sand n i asked her if the sand were stuck on the walls of the caves; the next second she was climbing over to the wall and studying the sand before telling me what she observed. Some information that she provided, she would credit the scientists and the upbringing she had....a very humble person. And she always make sure that the itinerary planned by This is Korea is met everyday. I love it that we are able to linger longer at places that are more of nature, plants and the sea and water. That was my aim of having a private tour but i was given much more. And i am absolutely apologetic towards Jennifer for the really late lunch times we had during the tour. However, she nvr once complained but told us it is a norm for her in her job. She brought us to really nice eateries and we love every single meal we had with her!
I am already missing Jeju!

Seoul - Kris was our TS in Seoul. He was a very joyous person and he was always smiling. It was really fun to be with him during the 2 days tour and it felt like having a friend rather than a TS! We had so many funny moments with Kris!!!! He is such a amazing photographer too!!! The photos he took n sent to us promptly the same night the tour ended were SO BEAUTIFUL! We kinda felt that it was as if we had engaged a professional photographer for our trip!!!! This is Korea should give Kris a promotion or an increment!
We also love the the bbq chicken and the army stew we had!!! Yummy!

To sum it up....we would definitely return to Jeju n Seoul n request for Jennifer and Kris!!!!!! Thank you both so much for this  wonderful experience!!!!!!!!!!!
