    We had a lovely host and she knew so much about the city! Highly recommended.

    Really enjoyed the tour with Jesse who was an extremely enthusiastic and fun guide. It was a valuable introduction to this lively city. My only recommendation is to slow down the pace and extend the time of the tour by another hour. Our tour lasted from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM.

    I am really sorry I am reviewing this so late. The main problem is that Viator didn't have a way to rate and review through the app only on the site But the Tour was really nice and the guide was better. She had a very nice attitude and decided in favor of waiting for me when I was somewhat late to arrival. Great Memories!

    I had a great time with Grace despite the rain. She was very kind and very knowledgeable and I learnt a lot about Seoul and Korea in a short time. She went out of her way to get me brochures about Korea culture after I mentioned it. Warmly recommended!

    We had a really interesting tour and felt that we were far more orientated afterwards.

    Itinerary was good. But poor management of time when we dillydallied at the museum which we could have gone back on our own and had to rush to catch the ringing of the bell by 12.

    The tour is worth doing as it does point out a number of places to see in Seoul. However it was a bit rushed and I could have used more time in some spots and less in others. The guide was good at improvising as one of the attractions was closed due to rain so I got to see another spot nearby.
