  • Good and interesting tour

  • Picked up right on time, by a lovely tour guide Daria, the afternoon ran according to schedule. The river cruise was quite pleasant , next the temple with the massive statue of Budda with the graduation cap on, the temple surrounds were lovely, and finally across the road to the Aquarium, which was very different to the ones in Australia. Overall a very nice afternoon, Daria was looking out for other members of our tour, always knowing where everyone was, a very happy guide.

  • Winnie was our guide and she was amazing. She showed us and explained to us everything with enthusiasm and she also took really good care of us while we were with her.

  • Our guide was extremely friendly, kind, and knowledgeable, we really enjoyed her company and guidance, it was a wonderful experience worth strongly recommending!

  • We had an excellent tour guide---Weenie---who I would rate a 5 star. Too bad the same cant be said about the tour.
    The COEX Aquarium is designed for families with small children. Nearly all of the exhibitions and attractions are aimed at children Not a location for adults who want to see a big city aquarium. Not much to see. Very disappointing.
    The Han River cruise was all of 15 minutes with no info given by the cruise boat about what we were seeing. Very disappointing.
    Most of the day was spent in traffic trying to get to these venues.

  • We didn't get to make it to our reservation because of some scheduling conflicts, but Im sure this tour would have been very nice!

  • Tour was good. the guide's English was ok.
    Would recommend to take it if you have the time.

  • Nice...

  • Very price worthy tour with friendly guide!

    The driver and guide came and picked us up at the hotel and we drove to the river for the boat trip. The river tour took an hour and it was beautiful, it did show the city form a different view than you get from roaming the city.

    The temple and aquarium was located next to each other which made it efficient with the 4.5h we had. The temple was tranquil considering it is located in the middle of Gangnam. After the aquarium we got dropped off in Gangnam so that we could continue the tour ourselves.

    Considering the trip did cost 70 which included: driver, guide, boat ticket and aquarium ticket we recommend this trip!

  • Not really a tour, it was very rushed and not completely satisfied. wanted to see more of gangnam
