  • The guide was very knowledgeable and we had a good contact. It was actually a very personal trip since we were the only participants so we could ask as many questions as we wanted. There was a lot to see at the Fortress but best part was Villagers performance at Korean Folk Village and I highly recommend seeing that.

  • We had a really good day with Brian. It was a very cold day at the fortress, snowing. Brian gave us lots of information, he was friendly and cheerful. Lunch was really good and hot which was great for such a cold day. The Korean folk village was interesting. As there were so few people at the village due to the cold and mid week, we got to see lots very quickly. All up a very interesting tour and great to get out a bit from central Seoul.

  • Our guide was nice. hwaseong fortress and korean folk village were ok. However, at the end he took us to ginseng center. That place was a total tourist trap. They're basically trying to sell you ginseng. We waited 1 hour there. I felt like our time was wasted.

    If you want ginseng, i guess you should do this tour. If not, STAY AWAY.

  • The tour was everthing promised, we were picked up on time, arrived and got very interesting explanations about Hwasong fortress. Later we had a good lunch and a 2 hour tour of a folk village, including shows. The guide was great, both nice anf knowledgeable. My schedule does not allow for more tourism but I can fully recommend
