Traveler ReviewsSee all reviews
I’ve been to Seoul before and I speak Korean because I am Korean but this was my boyfriend’s first time to Korea and I wanted to give him a tour that would include everything. He really liked this tour and had a great time seeing everything Seoul had to offer. Our guide was really good and thorough also.
The tour was really good. It truly showed us the 'essentials' at a comfortable pace. Our guide was Suni, and she was lovely. I would have liked to hear even more history and stories from Suni -- I got the impression she had more to share. Comfortable bus, though we didn't spend too much time on it. I would recommend this tour to anyone who doesn't have a lot of time in Seoul. We only really had two days to explore the city, and I doubt we would have crammed as much in without this tour.
This was an excellent tour. The sites were interesting and the guide super enthusiastic. The tour was well worth the money.
Had a great time...Annie did a fantastic work of showing around Seoul in a day.
Covered most of the important attractions. Highly recommend.
I had just one day to explore Seoul and on a hindsight I could not have chosen a better tour. Cindy was a fantastic guide and made the tour quite fun. I enjoyed the experience and would recommend it to others. Value for money.
Annie was a super knowledgeable and nice guide! The tour included so many highlights of Seoul at a good pace. We loved being able to dress in traditional Hanbok clothing and do a photo shoot! Little focus on shopping on this tour, which is why we selected it. We can do that ourselves. There are alot of options for Seoul city tours, but I'd highly recommend this one!!
This tour takes you to/by many of Seoul's tourist highlights. We visited Jogye Temple; drove by the Blue House; walked through Gyeongbok Palace, Isadong and the Bukchon Hanok Village; and finished up Myeongdong.
The guide was very friendly and helpful, and the tour provides a very nice overview of all the most important highlights of Seoul.
If you are in Seoul and you would like to see all of the essential sites then this is the tour for you. Not only was it informative thanks to our Jessica our guide but fun too. We were allowed ample time to see what needed to be seen without eating into our time at the other attractions. We were delighted with our tour.
Tour was fine, guide was very enthusiastic and we saw a lot of stuff but her English was weak. Other then that tour was good
