    I participated in today's program to learn more about Korean culture. I think that tourist spots have a very different vibe so I wanted to learn more of the history that isn't mentioned often. It was very interesting to see the different side within modern Seoul. I think it was a very good opportunity, because I would usually not get to go to an area like this and we got the opportunity to see some insights from local people which I enjoyed a lot. There was some confusion of the way and where to go, but considering that this was the first time and how confusing the narrow alley could be, it is reasonable and I didn't mind it.

    Very interesting & fun. I really enjoyed exploring the hidden street & places because they/these places are usually not easily accessible to foreigners so it was a very interesting experience to visit them with a tour guide.

    I've lived here for many years and I have never experienced Seoul like this. The amount of history and interesting areas to see is amazing. Palaces are great, but you get a much more real, mid-history, feel from this tour. You can't go wrong with this tour. I really enjoyed myself.

    The program is quite unique and educational. It will be useful for people who are interested in electronical machinery and their history. Also, it's an interesting experience for people who have been in Seoul for a long time and have been a lot of places.
