It was more than I expected. The garden of morning calm was spectacular. I expected less from the petite france but it was rather large when including the board walk that lets you see the sunset in the mountains. The guide was so kind and considerate the whole time. He always made sure everyone was happy. At the end of the day he even helped me find a quicker way back to my lodging. Really superb. When there was some traffic coming back into Seoul he was so sweet and apologetic even as the old Korean lady kept bickering at him to take a different route. He was smiling and friendly.

Our tour guide Grace lives up to her name! Very approachable and super nice. We are a family of four including a one year old; she went above and beyond with the tour and even helped me with my baby. I am grateful to have met her. Thank you for the experience.
