Guide Bio

Think about everything you have dreamed about that you wish to do in Korea, especially while you are staying near Seoul, and I will help you achieve it. Hello, I am Ki-won Kim in full Korean but I wish to be called just “Billy” for your convenience.

As I said in the preface, I can handle and maximize your fleeting but valuable moment with family, friends and beloved ones in Korea.

I was born in 1972 at Paju-City, the closest village to the North Korea and surrounded by lots of military camps. I had lived there for half of my life helping my parents’ agricultural work before I settled in Seoul, 1995, just after my parents had passed away. This year of 1995 is like a monument to me because everything started to change from this year on.

In 1995, I got an English Tour guide license issued by the Korean Government, got married to my lovely wife, started my career as a tour guide in Saipan, stared living in Seoul since then, had my first baby boy, now three after all. . . and so on.

In this way of describing my past life that I’ve been through, with many difficulties until my robust, calm life in Seoul, South Korea now, I hope my past experience will be helpful for you to understand real Korean life and culture more deeply.

What I really want to show and guide you through is the real life of Korean culture in this day and age, notwithstanding the modernized, globalized and developed city life in Korea that you may already be sick and tired of.

Impossibility doesn’t exist to me regarding your customized tour and whatever you wish to do in designing your unique, exotic tour you’ve been dreaming of in Korea as I just began a new touring concept to be excited about.

What makes you hesitate to ask, request, and design your own tour? Please get in touch with me about any single, doubtful and wishful issue. I am ready to try my best all the times to meet your satisfactory tour schedule at the most reasonable price if only I am with you at the same space, Korea.

The tours I am leading and recommending are so limited even though there exist so many gorgeous, unforgettable highlights and attractions in Korea that I cannot publish everything through this web site. The best tour route and schedule shall be up to your favorites, wishes, tastes and interests.

As I opened my profile here I will be restless hoping to show and explain to you as much as I can. Thank you for reading this through and looking forward to entertaining you soon!
