What a wonderful experience!! Full-day tour of Seoul.
Oct. 2019
I had a full-day tour of Seoul with this agency. I had not made up my mind yet before joining the tour. The weather was so cold. I could not make sure that I could walk all day or not. But I ended up on a good tour.
The full-day tour of Seoul was not disappointing. This tour agency, and particularly our guide, Nancy, were excellent. she helped me I could keep warm. She gave me her gloves and mufflers. she even gave me a warm hug.
In the morning, we had got look around the Temple and Palace. Nancy provided excellent commentary and explanation about Korean history and traditional culture. This tour includes meals also. After lunch, we visited the local market. we bought some souvenirs at Insadong street.
Most of all, I bought Korean cosmetics that I really wanted to buy. Nancy told me where I can buy it and took me there. After all the sightseeing and shopping, we were dropped off at the hotel.
If I visit Korea again, I want to meet Nancy again.

Best guide ever!
My son and I love traveling. We have been to many countries together. This tour was the perfect way to get to know the history of Korea as well as its contemporary culture. The markets were rich with flavor and excitement. The palaces and temple were majestic as they helped us better understand Korean history. Yet, our guide Amy was actually the key figure into making all this possible. She was very resourceful, knowledgeable, and taught us about her culture and history always with excitement and enthusiasm. She is actually the kindest and most helpful guide we have ever had in our trips, and we have traveled to dozens of countries before Korea! She even helped us buy tickets for our trip the next day. She perfectly accommodated my vegan diet needs and showed a genuine caring for our stay in Korea. She went out of her way to help us with everything we needed. By far, Amy was the best guide a tourist could ask for. Thanks Amy!
