It was an interesting experience and well worth the money. A great tour to do some last minute shopping for souvenirs, the guide I had was super friendly and spoke fluent English. She was able to deliver a informative history tour about the historical site and provided useful recommendations on where to find the best street food in the markets.

Our guide Grace was so nice and informative. The heated coach was nice too. We did the full day tour with lunch, and loved it all.

Even though it was winter and i was the only guest I know my guides would have been just as helpful and approachable.

Very knowledgeable guide. We visited several landmarks in Seoul, and had a very nice time.
