What people are saying about Seoul

Although it was a little rush but that was expected when joining a tour group. Especially when the location is far off the central Seoul. Mina was very clear with her explanation on meeting places and time. The kids enjoyed themselves at all 3 places arranged, the bus journey was smooth and the bus ride was comfortable.

We did the private tour to Alpaca world, Nami island and rail park. We enjoyed ourselves very much. Brian, our driver and guide, speaks English well and took good care of us.

Wonderful places with a wonderful staff, Mr. Charlie was a helpful person, Thank you very much for this activity and hope to do it again for sure

Charlie was a fantastic tour guide, I would tell others about about how steep the farm is.

An amazing display of art in multiple forms. Truly spectacular
