Looking forward must be followed by a gerund. So there is no error in that statement.

Tina said: (Oct 9, 2011)  
I think there is no problem in this statement.

Looking forword to seeing you is not incorrect.

Vivek said: (Jul 29, 2014)  
Looking forward to seeing you soon is a correct sentence.

Vijay said: (Aug 31, 2014)  
Looking is in continuous form already. So seeing shouldn't come.

Correct sentence is: Looking forward to see you soon.

I am writing letters every day and "looking forward to seeing you soon" or "looking forward to hearing from you soon" are so common. There is no errors in this question.

We can use gerund form after a verb having to post fix.

The statement 'Looking forward to seeing you soon' is correct. The difference between 'Looking forward ' and 'Look forward' is that first one is less formal compared to the latter.

I'm not getting this. Please help me.

Heena said: (Jul 30, 2016)  
I don't get this. I feel "Looking forward to seeing you soon" is absolutely correct.

Isn't it?

Dwaipayan Gangopadhyay said: (Aug 31, 2016)  
There will be no error. Looking forward to seeing is the correct from as 'to' is not an infinitive here. Here To is the preposition of the word forward and that's why it will take gerund. But it is only a silly mistake.

Hi guys.

Looking forward to seeing is correct. Because looking forward to is a phrase, so to+v1 is not useful hear. So the answer is no error.

Sonu said: (Jul 8, 2017)  
I think, No error is the correct answer.

Mary said: (Jul 12, 2017)  
Looking forward to seeing you is correct.

Minhaj said: (Jul 22, 2017)  
There should be 'ing' with verb after the phrase 'looking forward to'. So the original sentence is correct.

Nick Silver said: (Aug 30, 2017)  
(Will be) look forward to see you soon (again).

All is correct for any subject.

Sandeep said: (Jan 4, 2018)  
Looking forward to is followed by gerund no correction in the sentence.

Nit said: (Jul 20, 2018)  
I think it should be soon.

Vishal Srivastava said: (Sep 16, 2018)  
It is No error according to me.

Sanju Kushwaha said: (Oct 9, 2021)  
After "to" always use verb first form so correction is required and the correct answer is "Looking forward to see you".
