I really enjoyed this tour, though it was a bit hard as someone by themselves, especially as I was the only one traveling solo. The transportation was good and comfortable (and I'm a tall guy), and there was enough time and freedom to see the sights. I would recommend the rail bike to couples and groups, not to solo travelers.

We had an amazong day with our guide Yujin. She showed us the little secret spots, which you would miss as a tourist. It was a great experience and i would recommend it fo everyone who travels fo Seoul!

Great service, great reception everywhere, even in the metro. Compared to German prices, €60 for a month's data flat rate without telephony is acceptable.

It was easy to find, and they have very good service. The lady was very nice and they installed it for me which was amazing.

Everything went really well and the internet is more than great
