Outstanding! On time and willing to explain all the details. Great, great way to learn and have a good time.
Wish we had done this tour earlier in our stay. The Korean village tour was great and gave a good sense of how life operated in earlier years. The Palace was beautiful and wish we had more time at the museum. It was great to see the changing of the guard at the palace.
The first half of the tour and lunch were awesome! It was a great introduction to Seoul, and the food was delicious. The second half of the tour, a visit to the Korean Folk Village, not so much. I wasn't expecting it to be a visit to a fake village/amusement park, but I probably should have looked into it further before I booked. The company offers the same morning tour with a different afternoon tour, which sounded better than the one I went on. I would recommend that tour instead, but overall I thought this tour was wonderful and had great tour guides (especially Dora!).
The bus was airconditioned and comforfortable. We had enough free time to tour each sight on our own after explanations. Tour Guide was very knowledgable and gave interestng point about history and culture. They were very accomodating.......as I was only person who chose " full day" afternoon portion of tour so she " customized" the tour for me to cover some areas that were not listed in description and exclude another. I was able to experience a greater variety of places and have more time shopping! HIghly recommend!
Good tour for anyone wanting to see the historic parts of Seoul and in particular the old palaces. The guides were very helpful and well informed with excellent English
The early part of the trip was too rush, did not really enjoy. The later part which only two of us at the Cultural Village is more enjoyable.
