Tour guide Yeoni was extremely informative providing great details and info about the places that we visited. Tour guide Yeoni also provided additional info not on our itinerary, such as places to shop and eat and sight seeing. Yeoni is great and helpful.

Very convenient tour! In the morning they picked us up from our hotel straight to the first destination. There we met Katie, our tour guide for the day. She was the nicest and very helpful in telling the stories about the palaces and her own experience regarding korean culture.
