We learned a lot about Korean history, gained insight knowledge on some aspects of the culture, and got recommended good local places to eat. A very nice tour to take, and it’s not too tiring either.

Moses was great - a Spaniard leading a tour of Seoul in English 😊 He knew a lot about Korea’s and Seoul’s history. Also enjoyed the artesian part of the tour. Showed us some places I went and visited later. Would recommend the art galleries around Insadong. Overall a great introduction to Seoul. Thanks Moses
