My tour guide was Ben. It was my first time in Seoul so I very much appreciated his knowledge of the recent and past history of Korea. Ben's English is very good. The tour itself gives an excellent glimpse of Seoul's past blended with the new. Well thought out route and overall highly recommended.

We only had a short layover in Seoul on our way to Cambodia and thought a half day tour would give us a taste of the city. Our tour guide Sook did an outstanding job of showing us the highlights and even accommodated our request to try a lunch of ginseng chicken soup...yummy. Excellent tour. Highly recommended.

Wow! Is all I can say about this tour! After just completing a 2 week trip of Korea, Japan and Taiwan I would have to say this tour was the highlight. It ended up being a private tour so it really felt special! Amazing sites, great information and the show at the end is simply amazing. Thanks so much!

Our guide Ben met us promptly on time, it became a private tour, only the two of us.
He was very informative and took us to many places we would have missed. We experienced all forms of transport, getting up to Seoul Tower was very busy by bus, but it was worth it. Ben was very willing to talk about anything we asked him, and all the places that we visited were great. Lunch was lovely with a couple of beers, and then we walked it off. The archictecture between old and new is amazing. We finished the tour with a wonderful performance at the theatre, it was a very enjoyable tour. Be prepared, the all day option there is quite a lot of walking. Liz

My tour guide was Ben Kim, and he was fantastic! He was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. I was the only one on this tour, so it was a unique and memorable experience. The last time I was in Korea was 30 years ago when I was very young, so I was really interested in reconnecting with my culture and learning more about Korean history. Ben accommodated my interest in practicing Korean, so he did the tour in both English and Korean. The tour moved at a great pace and I learned a lot of interesting things, both historic and current. The Namsan Mountain portion of the tour was my favorite. The elevated vantage point provided breathtaking views and an opportunity to learn more about Korea in terms of significant landmarks, buildings, and mountains.

I had a wonderful day with Jessie who filled in for Ben. She was fantastic and knew a great deal about her amazing city of Seoul. She spent the entire day with me walking the city and pointing out key areas and talking about the rich culture and history of Seoul and South Korea. We had lunch at a local restaurant, visited a museum and ended the day with a wonderful performance at the Jeongdong Theater. I really felt like I had a great introduction to Seoul through the eyes of a native! I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Seoul. Thank you, Jessie!

This tour was more than worth the money! Ben was my guide and he was incredibly well informed. He taught me many interesting things about the country and was extremely open and personable. When I come back with friends I will without a doubt be doing this tour again. I did all day tour. Concert= :)

This walking tour was very enjoyable and informative. Our guide Ben has excellent knowledge with the history both old and new of Seoul. Ben had special spots for views that were amazing. I would recommend this tour and it is quite manageable for moderately mobile travellers. Maree and Phil Australia

This tour was so much fun, we highly recommend it! Ben was our tour guide and he was fantastic! I have already recommended him to my friend who will be visiting Seoul in the Fall. His English was great and he was so enthusiastic and passionate about Seoul and it's history. Ben took us to the observatory deck in City Hall, shopping at both Namdaemun Market and Myeongdong, and Nansam Tower which also included riding the cable car. He even carried our bags for us after we went shopping! We were just a small group my daughter and I, plus another group of 2 so it was almost like a private tour, and that was on a Saturday! Per the recommendations of other people who have taken this tour, we did this on our first full day in Seoul so we could get to know the city before venturing out on our own....definitely a good idea! My only regret is taking the half day tour instead of the full day!
