Worst tour guy!
Maritza_M, Aug 2023
Terrible tour guy!!! Viator should change that tour guy!!! He was the worst ever!! He was boring , liar and not empathic!!!
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Thank you for making the worst review..!! Please don't lie Ms. Maritza Melendez Nieves. We knew that you did not participate this tour cuz you get sick and you reported to us by WhatsApp earlier about it. You tried to cancel other tour that you booked under your name in 24 hours before the start of that tour, which we refused by our rules. That's why now you are disrupting our business with lies like this in retaliation for not receiving a refund. Please be a good person..!! Even you remained this kind of ridiculous review, Our smart potential customers will notice and still book our tours.
We have a grate tours to Nami and the guide is so wonderful.

Day trip to Mt Seorak
Mikyong_L, May 2023
Alpho was very friendly and knowledgeable about the areas we traveled and basically gave us a private tour. Went to the sokcho market and had fresh fish straight from the tank which was delicious. Would recommend using his services to friends.

Majestic Seorak Mountain
Jill_K, May 2023
We really enjoyed our trip to East Sea and Seorak mountain! Chance Kim, our guide, took great pictures of us and did an awesome job explaining the history of Seorak mountain and East Sea. We loved visiting the lighthouse, traditional market and tasting yummy ho-thuk filled with savory nuts and drinking fresh sugar cane juice. Seorak mountain was majestic! Highly recommend this trip to anyone wanting to experience some nature and beauty in Korea!

Thank you for the wonderful review. Ms. Kang. 감사합니다. 다음에 또 놀러오세요..!!
A must-see tour with a amazing guide
Nao_F, May 2023
BJ was our number one guide tour. Truly the best guide we had in Korea. Since the very moment we met him, we felt like we have knowed him for a long time. He put us at ease immediately. During the day, he shared with us some very interesting facts about Korea history and practices. We learned a lot from him and the places we saw were gorgeous. He was nice enough to answer our many questions et helped us take pictures spontaneously. Thanks again for this wonderful day with an amazing guide ! BJ, we wish you many more happy years with your family and as a talented guide.
Response from Host, May 2023
I would like to thank you so much for the review and at the same time say that you are very lucky. Because you were able to meet BJ, the best guide in Korea. We recommend the tours with our wonderful guides in the best scenery of our country.. Seoraksan..!!
Amazing tour experience!
Sergio_C, Apr 2023
Mr. Bj has a passion to be a tour guide! He has thought me so much about the mountains, east sea, and Buddha temples. I've learned so much from him. He's definitely someone you want to have him as your tour guide. He has lots of patience and will answer any questions you have. He really made my tour in Korea a memorable experience! I definitely would have not been able to do this by myself. I'm truly grateful to have him as a tour guide and I can guarantee you will to! 😄
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Thank you very much for the best cimpliment review for our great guide BJ. Here is his response; Dear Sergio At first many thanks for your good compliments. I also had a very good time with you during the Mt. Sorak & East coast tour. I hope that the time we had together would be a good opportunity for you to understand Korean history, culture, nature etc. I am sure that you will make many success in your future. I look forward to seeing you again in Korea. Best Regard Tour guide BJ Kwon

Orod_A, Apr 2023
This was an absolutely amazing experience. Alfonso picked us up on time in a very comfortable van. He was pleasant, knowledgeable and very flexible. The mountain hike was gorgeous. The trip to the market and seafood lunch was very special. We got to see the eastern sea and the ride back was enjoyable as we discussed a wide range of interesting topics with our tour guide as if we were long lost friends I highly recommend this company and Alfonso as a tour guide
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Thank you very much for the best cimpliment review for our great guide Alfonso. We are happy to hear that you spent awesome time with our wonderful tour guide. We hope you to join our tour later again.

Mt Seorak & East Sea
elaineong2a, Dec 2022
We love Mr Kim very much. He is very passionate and helpful throughout the tour. We love the tour flow, Mt Seorak & East Sea that he brought us. Food is nice. We will definitely be back for another tour with Mr. kim.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thank you for enjoying our tour service. When you come to Korea again and join our tour, we will povide you as good service as this tour again.
Nature delight!
ChoPeng_L, Nov 2022
We visited Mt. Seorak just after the peak season so it was quiet and peaceful. We had a wonderful time as our guide Mr Kim Chansoo was also a mountain hiker and gave us lots of information about the Mountain. The trail is very manageable but not for very young children or those in strollers. We also visited the East Sea and saw the beautiful sea from the lighthouse. At our request, Mr Kim also took us to a very nice seafood restaurant to try out their seafood and local fish dishes! Overall it was a very good trip and I highly recommend this tour to anyone who loves nature!
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thank you very much for the wonderful review. We hope you to visit Korea again and enjoy the other beautiful nature with us.
Amazing Tour / Amazing Tour Guide
April_B, Sept 2022
Our tour guide Alfonso was absolutely amazing. He was very knowledgeable with the area and history. We had an amazing day with him. After Mt. Seorak tour (which was beautiful) we went to a market and had chicken and beer. We also had a pancake with sticky rice and brown sugar (whatever you not miss this sweet delicacy - so yummy). While on the drive to the mountain and back Alfo provided amazing conversation. I highly recommend this tour. Please be aware though that there are numerous steps (some in not so great shape) that you must climb up to get to the area.
Response from Host, Sept 2022
Thank you for the great review..!! Here is our guide response. "Always feel honored and happy to hear that you guys had a wonderful time with us. The sticky and sweet snack which you experienced in the SockCho local market is called "Ho-Dduck"! It is one of favorites which everyone here, young and old, is crazy about. Once again thank you so much for having been with us, and highly appreciated your honest comments on our tour. Hopefully see you around soon again in Korea".
Jun was a great guide. He...
Amanda_L, Aug 2022
Jun was a great guide. He took us to all destinations. He gave a map with some info on the places and let us explore on our own. He was always at the point to meet on time and ready to set on the next location. He took care of our admissions and lunch was fantastic! Highly recommend
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Thank you for the nice review. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour with our great guide Jun. We hope to meet you again as our tourist in next chance.
Memorable trip to the East Sea and Mt Sorak
zbhw2t8bdd, Aug 2022
We had the most amazing tour guide BJ. We learned so many Korean history stories and BJ has a interesting style of story telling. The three hours driving went by so quickly. We found the experience more like a good friend taking you out for a drive than a tour.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Our travel agency would like to thank you for your review on behalf of BJ. Let him know about your wonderful review. He must have loved traveling with you too. Because he is truly a guide who loves to travel and travelers. We just got Mr. BJ's responding. He said. "Thanks to you, I had fun too, and I hope to have the opportunity to see you again next time".
Must see !!!
Seung_W, July 2022
Kim was very friendly and caring person We enjoyed our time there Mountain was very beautiful and East Sea was amazing!! I am highly recommend this place to all Thanks again
Response from Host, July 2022
Thank you so much for good hearted review Ms. Won. Whenever you come to Korea again, we will provide you all our best service.
Tour Guide is Awesome
HuiJeat_P, May 2022
Kim was such a dedicated tour guide, told us everything we want to know about Korea, kept us engaged the whole time. You could actually customize your trip with Kim, depending on your interests & fitness level, Kim is very accommodating. Try to avoid weekends if possible as the Koreans love to hike on the weekends, it is their national pastime & the National Park tends to be overcrowded.
Response from Host, May 2022
Thank you for the Awesome review Ms. Jaclyn. Please be our permanent tourist and we will bring you all the great spot that you like to visit.
Enttäuscht von Wetter und Reiseleitung
Monika_B, Aug 2023
Es gab vom Reiseleiter - ausser auf unsere Nachfrage - quasi keine Informationen zum Tempel in Soraksan und zu Sokchu. Bei strömenden Regen wartete er jedes Mal im Auto und schickte uns allein zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten. Da aufgrund des Nebels sowieso nichts zu sehen war, hätten wir uns diesen Teil aber sparen können. Er wartete unten und vergass leider uns zu sagen, dass die Seilbahn zu einer alten Festung führt (was der Sinn der Seilbahnfahrt gewesen wäre) Das im Preis enthaltene Mittagessen sollte zuerst Bibimpap sein. Erst als wir darauf bestanden eine regionale Spezilität zu essen und uns bereit erklärten einen Mehrpreis zu zahlen, führte er uns in ein Restaurant für gegrillten Fisch am Hafen in Sokchu.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Here is the answer from the guide who led this tour. I am sorry to read your review. I understand you got a bitter disappointment of Seoraksan Mt. tour in that bad weather day. Especially, so much foggy and cloudy in the Gwon- guem-seoung fortress. This terrible weather could not let you enjoy the scenery. Basically, Seoraksan mt. is proud of beautiful scenery and landscape. That's why many people canceled the tours when it rains. Before the cable car, I told you there are many trails for walking. but you worried about kids could be more slippery... About Lunch, I introduced the Bibimbap restaurants at the Seoraksan first. You chose the restaurants at the coastal area. I informed you may be need to pay some extra money over the budget in advance. I thought you were very happy at the grilled fish restaurant. Because your family enjoyed every single grilled fish.. It seemed that there was some misunderstanding. I hope to see you again in the future. When it's comes, let me serve you with more attentive caring. Good luck..!!
Toller Tagesausflug von Seoul
Leif_T, June 2019
Die Tour ist wirklich zu empfehlen. Chance der Tour Guide gibt sich sehr viel Mühe. Schon bei der Fahrt raus aus Seoul bespricht er mit einem den Tagesablauf und ist auch offen für Wünsche. Auch konnte man ihn alles Fragen und auch über Hintergründe der aktuellen Politik in Südkorea diskutieren bzw. fragen. Besonders der Ausflug nach Sokcho hat mir gut gefallen. Haben vom Leuchtturm den Blick aufs Meer und den Hafen genossen. Besuch eines kleinen Fischmarktes. Zu Mittag gab es dann ein leckeres Essen in einem kleinen Restaurant am Hafen. Toller frischer Fisch. Danach ging es zu einem großen Markt in der Stadt. Immer wieder interessant. Von dort ging dann die Fahrt zum Nationalpark. Dort besichtigten wir eine Tempel Anlage. Später ging es dann rauf mit der Seilbahn rauf auf den Berg. Toller Ausblick von dort oben. Nach einer kurzen Pause ging es dann wieder zurück nach Seoul. Am nächsten Tag schickte mir Chance noch die Bilder die er von mir gemacht hat. War ein toller Tagesausflug mit vielen neuen Eindrücken.
