Michael is a really warm and friendly person. He obviously enjoys what he does and it comes through when he talks to you. Our walk was peppered not only with information about the village - but also some really interesting insights into Korean history. The duration was just right. We got to see a lot of the village and never felt rushed. And he bought us some delicious fresh tomato juice to end our trip, which we thought was really sweet of him. Would definitely recommend this experience.

Micheal is an awesome host! Great in conversation, knowledge about the area, friendly, great with kids, the list could go on. Micheal is very passionate about Korea and it shows with his enthusiasm. Book this tour if you'd like to visit the Bukchon Hanok Village because his tour will not steer you in the wrong direction.

Absolutely outstanding! Michael is not only friendly, his passion for Korea and knowledge of Korean history is second to none. He went out of his way to help me and even offered many suggestions of things to see after we finished touring Bukchon. I cant imagine having a better tour guide in the Bukchon village! Really a highlight of my trip to Seoul and I look forward to returning to Korea and touring again with Michael. Definitely book this tour if you plan on visiting Bukchon Hanok!

Michael was passionate, easy to connect and have very deep knowledge of the Korean history. Walking through the old Bongku district, Michael showed me a contrast in Seoul.
