The guide was so patient and friendly. Even without a Korean phone number, still communicated through email for meetup location and etc. It was really good to learn about an authentic traditional Korean game during the break in the Café at the palace. The walk in the village was moderate and the view was stunning! It would nice to have one more stop at the village and give more historical background.

I really liked this tour. I went with my 3 teenage children and we had a great time. fun, well organized. culture, gastronomy and entertainment activities. everything about bikes that makes it very original. Super recommend!
