We went with Larry, very attentive and friendly. We were a fairly large group, but not overbearing. We went to see 4 places, we did not have much time in each place, but we could enjoy the visit well. You can bring food for lunch, but if not, Larry will take you to a small place to eat bulgogui, there was also a vegetarian option. Very comfortable to have transportation included in the entire tour. Recommendable.

Was a bit disappointed bec the weather did not cooperate and it was raining too much, but nevertheless still beautiful and it was a great experience. Just too bad our guide did not really guide us thru about the history of the area. He was just literally standing next to us, but he’s so nice just that it seems he doesnt have knowledge of the place.

Dongsook was an amazing guide with her enthusiasm, passion, and knowledge on the history during the tour. Also, shoutout to Kyle as well for his helpfulness! We thoroughly enjoyed our time and would recommend checking this out!

The trip was well prepared and led by a great guide - Larry - our guide is very professional and contact. I recommend!

Friendly and funny tour guide. Transport was prompt and clean. Great Views. Definitely will recommend this trip.
