A Recent Review of this tour

Our guide "Chris" (Hyosang) had perfect command of colloquial English. Because my wife had difficulty walking, he carefully adapted the tour to minimize climbing and walking long distances. All four of us really appreciated the detail descriptions he provided on the history of Korea going back about 3,000 years. We all enjoyed our tour enormously.
