This tour gave us a very thorough understanding of Seoul's Gyeongbokgung palace and very interesting architectural knowledge of old Seoul city. His knowledge of Seoul was very thorough and his love of the city really shined through as he not only gave us in depth information regarding the city and the palace, but he was very in tune with great photographic opportunities of Seoul.

I would very much consider doing another tour with them if not in Seoul but other locations on a very likely 2nd visit to Korea.

Tour Guide, Ben Kim, was outstanding. He tailored the tour to our teen/preteen sons' interests. It was a very hot August day but Ben knew exactly the spots to duck into to cool off. The changing of the palace guard schedule changes often and Ben knew exactly when we had to be there to see it. Amazing performance. Very enjoyable and well worth the money. Thumbs up!

Great!! Actually I didn't expect to see all about the over 600-year-city on the 3 hour walking tour, and also the tour itinerary it looked that it that. However, it was good enough to taste some of them in the limited time. I really enjoyed the time with others. The tour was both entertaining and informative, especially the tour guide would give more information about the country and the people living there. We would have another hour in the Bukchon which is one of the most famous tourist attractions with its endless sidewalks. Instead, 2 of us could catch up an airport limousine in order to meet their plane. A very well organized tour by the experienced tour guide, thanks!

It's a long but stimulating walking tour. Our guide Ben was an excellent guide - articulate, patient and kind. This was my second tour of the Palace and Bukchon but I learned things that I didn't the first time. The route took us to some interesting nooks and corners that were not apparent before. Well worth it.

This walking tour was a great start to explore in Seoul, and the guide Ben K ensured that I could have fun and learn history of Korea at the same time. Ben was friendly, professional, and knowledgeable about Korean history and culture, and he was the excellent guide whom I truly enjoyed touring with. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is new to Korea. Ben Thank you for your outstanding service!!!

This tour is very convenient if you are new to the korean culture and you want to know a little bit more about it. The guide, Ben Kim, was very knowledgeable and he explained to us the history of the places we visited, as well as some curiosities. He could answer our questions and was a very nice person. Also, we were already been in a place that was included in the tour, so he changed the schedule and brought us to a place we've never been to!
I highly recommend this tour if you are interested in the background of this city, it is very interesting!

The tour was fantastic and within the short few hours, it provided us with a good foundation on the sights that we have seen. Our tour guide Ben was really knowledgeable, providing lots of insights and historical facts. He was enthusiastic throughout the duration of the tour and extended it well beyond the stipulated hours. Kiddos to him for being so passionate! If you have time for only 1 tour in Korea, please don't hesitate to pick this!!
