    A great tour
    Jung is a fantastic tour guide! She was very informative and engaging. We felt the group size was good for keeping a good flow of the day. We learned a lot and it was good to put the visuals to the story. It was definitely worth the cost. We were also picked up from our hotel in the morning which was very convenient!

    Good mix of history and modern tour.
    Orota did an awesome job with the Tour. Full of historical facts which was my interest. Highly recommend this tour. Comprehensive information on the history of the buildings, interesting information on the shops in Insadong & Nandaemun Market & I especially liked Namsan Hanok Village. She will take good photos for good memories.

    Good experience at the DMZ
    Orota was a great guide! We felt very comfortable and learned a lot about the Korean War and relations between north and South Korea. Her energy was lovely and she were more than happy to take our photos and answer our questions. Would definitely recommend the tour with Orota.

Our tour guide picked us up at 8:15am and told us it usually goes until about 12:30pm with four stops...we were done at 11:30am. There was four stops and while they were all fun, interesting places to visit, we felt very rushed. We did not have time to look around, let alone shop or read information. Our tour guide was walking very quickly and while she gave us a lot of information, most of it interesting, we don't think we got our money's worth since it was so fast. Our experience was not what we were hoping it would be

Right, so I’m not sure if it were just our guide or what, I see that many of the other reviews here are positive, so many others have had good experiences with this company. I can’t say that we did. My mother and I did the morning tour of Bukchon, the shrine, the palace and the national museum of Korea and we were left very disappointed for a variety of reasons. For one, the tour of Bukchon, which was really my only reason for going on a tour in the first place was extremely rushed and I could feed the tour guide breathing down my neck to the point where I barely took any pictures at all. We were legitimately only there for about 15 minutes and didn’t even go to the popular scenic lookouts.

Then, we get in a car and go to the palace, this was also very rushed and felt like I was watching a YouTube video on it rather than being there. We went from there to the shrine, which was a lot less rushed because the shrine have a separate guide who leads the tour.

Now at this point we’ve done a considerable bit of walking in the Korean summer humidity and rain and there’s not a single bottle of water offered? It’s not like the tour was free, we spent 120,000 won total and you’re telling me a company of this size with this many reviews on trip advisor can’t spare a bottle of water per customer on a 4 hour walking tour in 36 degree Celsius weather with 100 percent humidity?

We ended our day at the national museum of Korea which was also quite rushed and were given the choice of being dropped off at Myeong-dong or staying in the area. This is another complaint of mine. I’ve been to every continent and had guided tours on all of them. I’ve never been on a tour for this much money that didn’t take you back to your hotel directly. That’s ridiculous and shouldn’t even be offered as an option. All tours should pick up and drop off at the hotel as well as offer water to the customers, even if it’s for 1000 won to buy, you need to have some onboard.

We raised these concerns with our tour guide who initially brushed them off and said it was on the customers to provide themselves with water and then ultimately changed her tune to say that she’d bring it up with the office. This is ridiculous, even if it's to buy, tours in the summer need to have water for customers, it's a walking tour in the South Korean humidity. You provide umbrellas, you can spare a couple thousand won for some water as well.
