A Recent Review of this tour

Pam was a wonderful tour guide! We scheduled with her upon recommendation from an acquaintance, and it was absolutely the best way to start our time in Seoul. Pam was warm and friendly with all of us, including my two elementary school-age children. She was a valuable source of information and readily answered any questions she had. We found ourselves referencing things she had told us later in our trip. Spending time with her helped us get to understand Seoul and South Korea on a deeper level.
