Very good tour to discover South Korea
VINCENT121_2016
, Aug 2019
Very good tour to discover South Korea. Our guide Cooper was excellent, very friendly, helpful and always ready to share his country culture. Few comments though: - WIFI in the bus would be a plus. - In Gongju, the king's tomb is not that interesting: not much to see. Moreover, the treasure museum should be added in the itinerary. - In Jeonju, we should have spent more time in the Hanok village, instead of a 15-20mn walk through only. - Too much time (2.5h) was spent in Suncheon Bay Garden in a rainy day. Instead a bus city tour could have been proposed too. - At Hahoe Hanok village, renting a gulf cart would have been a good option, since it was so hot to walk! - Beautiful Seokguram grotto in Gyeongju. - Beautiful Seoraksan national park. - Beautiful view of Haeundae breach from Westin Chosun hotel panoramic coffee shop. A highly recommended tour, since it would have been so difficult to go on your own, since we don't speak Korean, and most of the people hardly speak English.

Fabulous tour for those who seek an authentic away from Seoul experience. Fairly good guide, lots of driving interesting destinations. As is expected from the extent of tours this kind, one wished we had more time to explore certain places - especially Suncheon Bay Garden & Mt. Seorak. Hotel stays on day 2&3 would have been a lot better with better housekeeping services and cleaner sheets!! If you are vegan/ vegetarian please be prepared to snack a lot and eat local vegetarian options ( but check on what goes into the sides and stock of soups etc) Bus rides were paced well with enough breaks. Overall a good tour. We we're blessed with good bus mates too!!

Our guide, Justin, was very accommodating and helpful. The hote're glad we took this tour, there really is not that much to see in South Korea. Very impressive highway system, tall apartment buildings all over the place and advertising signs festooning most every building. We were exposed to a good degree of Korean history and culture but that's about it.

Great tour if you are looking for a tour around South Korea. What made our tour exceptional was thanks to our guide, Brandon. He had a wonderful sense of humor and a frank insightful narrative. He was very accommodating to meet the needs of our dynamic group from various backgrounds and ages. Provided mini gifts and snacks throughout our trip, which I found out later was paid from his own expense. I wanted to try various dishes in Korea, and he provided all the information needed to enjoy them during the tour. We were able to connect very well with our guide Brandon, and made us feel like we had an older Korean brother showing us around. Thank you so much 형

We had such a good time on our tour. Our guide, Justin, was amazing!! We had a 7 month old baby too, and they made it super easy to travel with him. We were able to see and do a lot on this trip it was definitely packed full of things to do and see. It would have been nice to spend more time in some areas, but then it would probably have to be a longer trip!!

We highly recommend this tour as we went all over South Korea and visited the highlights of every city. The countryside is just so beautiful with the fall foliage. The rice fields were orange in color ready to harvest. Mt. Seorak Mountain was yellow, orange, red and green in color. I never realized that South Korea has so many UNESCO World Heritage Site until we joined this tour. We have a thousand pictures because every place that we went were picture perfect. Seokguram Temple and Bulguksa Temple were just amazing. The hotel accommodations with breakfast included were all good. I shot a picture of what the countryside look like in one frame Mountains, Sea, Islands, Skyscrapers and Rice fields amazing!!! Our tour guide, Miss Mina, made this tour very memorable. She treated us like a family and took care of all of us. She has vast knowledge of Korean history and every place that we went. Without Miss Mina, we wouldn't love this tour so much. We were all sad when the tour ended and saying farewell to Miss Mina.

8/10 Look for K-shuttle as no Viator sign. 9/10 if bus had less noise and toilet. Great tour guide Justin Choi, one of the best. Great historical knowledge, telling us the history and stories behind sites, with a sense of humour. Great food advice. Hotels 2x4*, 1x3*, 1avg. Free WiFi at hotels. :)
