Ben is an excellent guide!

This tour was a highlight of my trip to Seoul. Ben was an excellent guide - he was knowledgeable (facts/history), interesting (shared hidden gems), and funny. I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and highly recommend Ben!

Ben was our tour guide and he was amazing! Gave us so much history about the palace and the area. He also helped us take some one of a kind pictures. I had little trouble getting to the meeting location and Ben was so accommodating and helpful. I Really recommend this tour!
Great Informational Walkiny Tour

Jack was a good tour guide. He did a great job of directing us through the palace grounds and sharing a good amount of history, but not too much. My favorite thing was that Jack knew the best photo opps and kept stopping to take our picture. That was so appreciated!
Brilliant tour.

The tour guide was incredible.We were late 15 minutes and he was still waiting. He took the time to explain everything at all of the sites. This is a must tour for anyone interested in learning the history of Korea.
Amazing half day exploring cultural Seoul!

Ben was an amazing, informative guide! Our group was small, myself and two others so the tour was intimate and there was plenty of opportunity to ask questions. Ben made us all very comfortable and he was super professional and approachable. I'd 100% recommend this tour to anyone and everyone!

my friend and I were in soul and wanted to make the most of of our short time as well as learning different to what we could just google it . decided on victor after reading the reviews and went for a three hours tour . Ben was the best ever tour guide we have experienced , he was so helpful and while taking us to few places has thought us so much of their culture etc. that we could never have known of . i am a traveller and can highly recommend the viator. our experience with ben as a tour guide was absolutely exceptional. shoreh and fari

I had a great time. The palace was the highlight of the tour. The guide pointed out lots of interesting information, and took me to the best angles to get wonderful photos. I would not have enjoyed these places as much if I'd gone by myself.
