Comprehensive and Interesting tour
Feb. 2020 • Solo
What a great guide Bergen is! He is enthusiastic, friendly, knowledgeable and fun to be with. Bergen showed me everything that I wanted to see, introduced me to delicious Ginseng Chicken soup, strong ginger tea and still more exotic foods at the market. He was willing to adjust the itinerary so that I could see the Spirit Shrine of the Joseon kings and even found me a shop selling high quality celadon ceramics. I couldn’t recommend Bergen more highly.

Highly recommended for families with young and old
Dec. 2019 • Family
This was our 3rd trip to Seoul, and so we have visited quite a few of the attractions previously. Bergen was very prompt in customizing the tour for us. Knowing that my elderly parents could not walk long distances, he was able to make changes to the itinerary during the tour. We especially loved the food recommendations which were not the usual touristy restaurants. 👍🏻

Thank you for the warm review, Ms. Koh. I was also pleased to have such wonderful tour with your family. It was so impressive seeing all of your family prayed with consecrated rice and candle at Buddhist temple. I think those deep religious make your family so happy. Good luck to your whole family member in 2020 too. Bergen Park

An amazing Seoul tour with an extraordinary tour guide - Mr. Bergen Park!
Dec. 2019
We had a full day tour in Seoul with Mr. Bergen Park and it was an unforgettable experience. The tour was perfectly organized and Mr Park introduced to us the historical as well as modern sides of this great city. He did his best to make all our plans work on that day.
I'd would highly recommend Mr. Bergen Park to anybody, who is looking for a knowledgeable, helpful, interesting tour guide in South Korea in general and Seoul in particular.

Comfortable and stress free trip
Nov. 2019 • Family
I wouldn't think twice to recommend Bergen to my family and friends. He was understanding and took care of my elderly parents throughout the trip. We had to start the tour a little late and from a different location since I got lost in Myeongdong looking for breakfast. He also changed his itinerary half way through the trip to accommodate them, and I truly appreciate the gesture. Lunch and dinner was great as well. I would say that we were in good hands the whole day.

Perfect TOUR!!
Oct. 2019
We spent a day at the end of October with Mr. Bergen Park following his tour. We really appreciated the organization of the day, we think the times are correct, there were the right breaks to appreciate the atmosphere of Seoul.
The journeys through the city were perfect and comfortable, he took care of us all day.
Thanks to him we lived a real popular market and ate in a traditional restaurant in Seuol, not a tourist one.
During the day he provided us with a lot of information on Korea and the Koreans, maintaining our curiosity and attention all the time.
The tuor lasted almost 12 hours, we also had our one-year-old baby girl with a stroller, 12 hours passed quickly.
I highly recommend following this tour to all those who have the interest of discovering the true face of Seol, starting from the story up to the present day. Bravo Bergen!

Excellent tour!!
Apr. 2019 • Family
I booked this tour for our family of 6. We wanted to see Seoul with a local tour guide to understand its culture and heritage and visit all important places. As soon as I booked the tour, Bergen contacted me through email confirming the tour. As we are vegetarians, I had requested veg food and he was happy to accommodate our needs. As the trip was nearing he kept in touch with us and notified us of the pick up details.
On that day of the tour he arrived bright and early and took us in a private vehicle to all the places mentioned in the tour. He explained each and every place well and was willing to answer questions and was very patient with us when we took a lot of photos!! He made the trip very interesting and joked around a lot. He made us feel at home!!
He took us to a excellent vegan place for lunch and even till today we enjoy thinking about the experience. After lunch we went to more places and shopping and ended out tour with Korean street food. The market was amazing and the food was lip smacking. We have never eaten such good food so far!!
Bergen is the best guide I have ever seen and we all enjoyed the tour a lot. I highly recommend this your. Great value for money!!

Fabulous tour of Seoul w/ Lunch & Dinner!
Sep. 2019 • Couples
We had a fabulous time eating our way through Seoul and seeing some amazing sights! Bergen Park, our personal tour guide for the day, took us to lunch at a Michelin-recommend restaurant that served chicken stuffed with ginseng and rice. It was absolutely delicious. Next we stopped for afternoon tea to try some local fruit blends. And for dinner, we went to a street food market and hopped from station station for a fantastic 3-course meal. Typically I am reluctant to eat street food abroad, but I felt confident with Bergen as our guide. In between food stops, we saw some major sights in Seoul, like Gyeongbokgung Palace and the National Folk Museum. Most of the day was spent walking outdoors, so it was nice to see the beauty of the city as we walked from meal to meal. Highly recommend this city & food tour!
