Excellent walking tour with our guide Lillie Park in Seoul
Lillie was very knowledgeable about the city, its history and traditions
Would highly recommend - a great way to start your visit and to get to know about this amazing city!

Had a fantastic time with my guide, Junie. She is knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend this tour.
Really enjoyed this walking tour with guide Jesse and trainee Junie.
Gained a lot of knowledge and insights to Seoul. Would suggest doing this walking tour at the start of your travels as you can pick up a lot of suggestions on places to visit on your own.
The tour was excellent , the best way to have a quick view of Seoul , Kang Myong Shin the guide was the best , she really know her history. Do not doubt about takeing it.
Ren is a very knowledgeable guide. I came away from the tour feeling much more educated about the culture and history of Seoul.
Jiny, my guide, was top-notch. A young lady with a vast knowledge of her city, and is good at conveying it to others. She taught me a few phrases in Korean that I used the rest of my trip.
Thoroughly enjoyed our morning with Mr Kim - parents and teenage kids alike. We saw parts of Seoul we would totally have missed on our own. Mr Kim obviously loves his city and it was wonderful to see his enthusiasm, energy and pride as he showed us his city. Thank you.
The tour itself was very lax; we had a general route but we could stop where we wanted to, which was perfect for my family of five. The sites themselves were interesting and well rounded. Our guides, Jong and Mr. Kim, dipped into a bit of every aspect of South Korean culture, from its vast history to interesting little factoids to modern myths. The guides were very welcoming and hospitable. They not only knew their stuff, but they also made lunch recommendations and guided us over to our next stop! The tour was a wonderful three or so hours and (believe me, I've done my research) the prices can't be beat!
What a great way to see Seoul! We all had a blast and our guide was fantastic~~I would recommend this tour to anyone who loves to have insight view of Seoul!
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.
everything was good. My only complaint is that we were taken to over priced state stores three times and could not go to other stores...everyone seemed unhappy with this as we were there for indefinite periods of time.....Finally, at last stop...after several complained...we were given some free time.
Very friendly guide. I even got a private tour. Great deal if you want a quick tour!
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.
We liked the scope of the tour and what we saw in a short time was really good but the guide had to rush to meet the ceremonires at the 'changing of the guard" palace and also the "bell ringing" at the temple. Perhaps this tour should commence earlier? Also the guide needed to stop at intervals to speak directly to the participants to be heard over the traffic. His Eenglish was poor and although very keen and conscientious, he needed to learn to stop and explain, rather than to lead the way talking as he went. despite this, we enjoyed the tour and would recoomend it.

Interesting tour. The guide was very friendly and helpfull, but his english was rather limited. So the information I got was very basic.
The tour guide wasn't very informative and his English could have been better, luckily he had 2 trainees with him who could communicate well and were much more knowledgeable.The tour description didn't match the real thing as I was taken to a museum and spent an hour in there instead of "ambling down the streets seeing numerous markets, temples and tea houses"(didn't see one tea house and certainly didn't try any Korean food on this tour). The places I was taken you can easily see on your own. I was expecting lanes and alleys, places I perhaps wouldn't venture down for fear of getting lost.
