Having a private tour van is very convenient since you get to choose places that you prefer. We highly recommend this, and having Marcos as our driver who is very knowledgeable, very polite and very helpful, made our tour so unforgettable. Kudos to him, because we really get to enjoy Seoul City Day tour! We’ll definitely avail a private van again from this site, when we come back to South Korea and explore other places.

Lucia was great! We love our conversations with her (in chat group and ride) and the quick history lessons she divulged during the long bus ride. She was there when we needed help and empowered us to explore without hesitation. Thank you for preparing us for the best times at Morning Calm and Nami Island!
