Private Tour Reviews

I was so worried about traveling with my newborn and elderly parents that I decided to book a private tour with VIP. Well, it was the best decision I could have made. Our tour guide Moon ensured everyone was looked after and she was so knowledgeable, kind and entertaining too. She even laughed at some of my dad’s terrible jokes.

We only had 48 hours stopover at Incheon Airport but wanted to see the main sites in Seoul and visit Namsan Tower at nighttime. We booked the full day private tour with Equus sedan. Our trip was very organized and we visited many places including palaces markets and a cruise down Han River. We are both very satisfied and will book again next time with VIP.

As our family have temporarily located to Korea to be with my actively serving husband we already had access to a car. But not knowing much about Seoul I wanted to book a tour guide for the day. We all had a fantastic time and So Young even introduced us to a few local Korean delicacies. Gamsahamnida…
