Our tour started at 9:00 in the morning. Our guide BK and his driver picked us up at our hotel. We drove to the trailhead. We hiked at our own pace. The weather was just perfect cloudy and foggy. The clouds and fog would disappear as we hiked. On the way up we saw a temple, but we would stop on the way down. This is a popular place for many Koreans. On the way down we stopped at the Buddhist temple. This was definitely worth the stop. You have to climb the 108 steps to see the giant Buddha carved into the mountain. Just such a beautiful place. After the hike we were whisked by van to the amethyst factory. Great place with so many amethysts to choose from. Next it was lunch at a local chain restaurant. The food was cooked right on the table. It hit the spot for the hungry hikers. Next was a trip to the Korean spa. This was an experience. You are separated by sex and shown to a locker for shoes then another locker for your clothes. You are given a cute little suit to wear. Off to the sauna you go. It looks like an oven and is hotter than the sun( just kidding), but it is hot. You are only supposed to stay in for 5 minutes. That is more than enough time to sweat. Afterwards a snack and into a cooling room. This is followed by the green tea tub, then off to the bathing part. It is a great way to shed that old winter skin. Afterwards to the sauna one more time then to the changing room. At this point a new you emerges. What a great day!

Great tour. Our guide was really friendly and helpful. All was well organised. The climbing was a bit hard because it was raining that day but the temple at the top and the Buddha statue was well worth the effort. Lunch was in a nice restaurant. The visit in the Ginseng place was a bit rushed by the sales person who was more interested to sell us some stuff. The massage was excellent both to me and my wife. So really good value

I must say that the concept of this tour was amazing and it was a great tour to begin our Asian vacation, but we were a little disappointed that in the end the guide left and we were unable to get the massage as described on the voucher rather we just visited the spa. Overall it was a great experience and would do it again.

It was tiring but definitely worth every step after reaching the peak of the mountain. Our tour guide kept as entertained the whole time as it can be very exhausting. It is a recommended trip for all those adventurous travellers.

very nice guide, good english, very helpful, punctual. However not an expert on art so was only able to take me to galleries, could not provide much information on the Korean modern art world.
