4.6 / 5

based on 228 reviews

Although it was a little rush but that was expected when joining a tour group. Especially when the location is far off the central Seoul. Mina was very clear with her explanation on meeting places and time. The kids enjoyed themselves at all 3 places arranged, the bus journey was smooth and the bus ride was comfortable.

The tour was great. Early start and a long day but it is worth it. Tommy was our host and he did a fantastic job of keeping us informed, taking photos for us and giving us lots of interesting information.

The tour is organized seamlessly and ample time is given for each stop. Our guide SJ was knowledgeable and eager to answer any questions we asked. Would 10/10 recommend this!

Very good tour with a lot of information about the history of Korea. We recommend; with several highlights (suspension bridge, tunnel, etc.).

Sebastian was an incredible guide and helped answer all our questions. Very smooth and definitely a top highlight and must do
