A Recent Review of this tour

I just had the perfect tour of the historic part of Seoul with my tour guide, Chris. I not only learned a great deal about Korean history and culture, but I also appreciated Chris's insights into the cultural changes of Korea over the last decades. The pace of the tour was just right, and overall exceeded my expectations.
