Our tour

The most special way to explore Korea


Hi. It's Lee from Seoul!

Certified tour guide / Certified Korean language teacher

I was born and raised in Seoul and lived in 5 different countries, Canada, US, Australia, Russia and Germany. I studied Business in Seoul with an exchange program in US and completed MBA in Sydney. 
I was a Research Analyst and Marketer in big companies, highly paying and stable job. It was what many called a good life.
But I always liked to be in the nature more than the office. I hiked Kilimanjaro summit alone, Annapurna Base Camp alone, Olympus alone, Everest Base Camp, Fuji, Alps alone and many others in the world. (Alone sometimes means with a hiking guide. In some countries you must hire one). Also I've led a hiking club over 3 years.

So I decided to have my own travel agency and operate hiking and city tours. Most of my tours are of food and hiking. Now I can hike even more often, have good food with travelers with lots of laughter and practice calligraphy everyday which I love too. ❤️

Many travelers don't know we have a lot of mountains in Korea. 70% of the land is mountainous and amazingly beautiful. And the food.... I guess you already know. So yummy!

If you visit Korea, please contact me! I love to show my hometown to any of you who loves nature and nice food! Thank you for reading it. Hope to see you in Korea! :-)
