        This was a great tour! Chris communicated with us 2 days prior to our tour and then again on route to pick us up. He picked us up promptly at our hotel and drove us to various landmark tourist spots. It was great to be able to just relax on the first day of our Seoul trip and get a good layout of the city and see a lot of the "must see" spots. Especially cool was all the information he provided as he led us around Gyeongbokgung Palace. No way would we have been able to appreciate all the buildings there, as it is a massive complex. Bukchon Hanok Village was also cool, and then he took us to Insadong for lunch at a dumpling place. We got to walk around Insadong as well and then we went to N Seoul Tower and got to see great views of the city. The car was clean and comfortable and the pace of the tour was good. Highly recommend, especially if you have a family or big group. Thumbs up to Chris!Thank you!!!
