I'm very impressed with our tour guide David Kim's performance and attitude. He was very helpful and patient, rendering help to another handicapped tourist -even when going up and down the hilly slopes in our group-he piggybacked the tourist! Overall, the tour was worth going.

Long day but worthwhile.
Ross_D, May 2023
Despite it being a cold rainy day, we had a good time. Lunch at Yangdong Folk Village and the Donggung Palace were the highlights. The English guide was excellent and the driver was superb. The second pickup location at Haeundae Station was pretty convenient for us and allowed us to sleep in a bit. It does end up being a long day with lots of walking.
A full day

The tour is a long day , lots of travel but enjoyable. If you are not prepared to walk a lot it’s not for you. We enjoyed it as we wouldn’t have travelled to the sites by ourselves. A tour was ideal.

First off, the guide was sweet and kind and endearing despite struggling with English. The driver as friendly and safe/competent. That's where the positive fun dry, alas. 12 hours long and only about two hours seeing things, which weren't Even that interesting. By 4pm (we had left Busan Station at 09:50), we had only seen a tourist village for thirty minutes and had lunch, all a waste of time. Then two more stops. I've done hundreds of tours in the 135 countries i have visited and this was, hands down, the worst and most pointless tour undertaken. A waste of time, a water of money, q waste of a day.
Generally good but a long day!

Good tour but a really long day. Maybe they could start earlier. Covers a lot and guide was good. Transport was safe and clean. Lunch should be left more open and free for guests to decide rather than being 'forced' to go where the group goes. Tour operator was easy to communicate with. Punctual.

Thank you for the feedback and we will definitely discuss with your suggestions.
Great day tour from Busan
stevenzau, Feb 2020
3 UNESCO listed locations plus Donggung palace at sunset. As it was low season in February, the tour group only has 17 people. We are the only 2 english speaking tourists, we had the english speaking guide to ourselves. Jay was friendly and very knowledgeable. He speaks fluent english, showed us the best photo spots, so we had a great time. It was cold in February but we had fine sunny day and crisp clean air. Lunch was reasonably priced and big portion.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Thank you for the feedback. We are happy that you enjoyed the trip with our tour guide Jay. Hope we can meet you again in Korea and please recommend our tours to your family and friends if you love our service.
A nice easy tour

The highlights were the palace at night and the grotto. The local village tour can potentially be replaced with something else as there was not much to see.
Good Tour
Alan S, Oct 2019
Went on the only wet day of our Korean trip but was still enjoyable. The guides were fantastic Chloe was the English speaking guide and is a credit to the company she went out of her way to make sure we saw all the highlights despite the rain. The temples were very spectacular and the village interesting. The lunch stop was good value and efficient.
Great day trip to Gyeongju
DamienZ22, Oct 2019
Although it was very rushed I do feel that it was a good taster of Gyeongju. Really like the two tour guides Mindy and Happy. Mindy's English was very good and Happy's knowledge of all the places was very deep. I would love to take another tour with them some day.
Great views,

We were lucky to have a day with relatively few visitors and thus had an almost-private tour (4 people in the English speaking section). Our guides Ellie and Mira were kind and informative and took us to places with rich history and great views. It was certainly one of the better tours we had on our trip.

Overall a really fun experience. The tour was paced well and allowed for a good amount of time to explore various sites. Personal favourites were Yangdong and Bulguksa Temple. Would highly recommend this tour.

Good tour which took in a lot and guided by very helpful, cheerful and informative Ken (in English) and Kelvin (in Chinese). Very helpful with our infant son.
I'm very impressed with our tour guide...
