4-Day Spain Tour: Cordoba, Seville and Granada from Madrid

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The Alhambra in Granada is a must-visit destination. This is a convenient way to explore Andalusia if you're short on time. There is a separate local guide for Cordoba, Seville, Granada, and Toledo to provide much more in-depth information for each location. Plenty of free time in Seville and Granada to shop or explore on your own. The standard hotel accommodations were pretty nice.

DMZ Past and Present: Korean Demilitarized Zone Tour from Seoul

Seoul, South Korea

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

I was unfortunate and had an extremely uninterested and unorganized tour guide, but this is still worth a visit for the 3rd Infiltration Tunnel experience. This is one of the most popular tours so it was a full bus. Some passengers were booked on an additional tour to visit the JSA and were suppose to be dropped off before the bus headed back to Seoul. Unfortunately, one of the passengers who needed to stay for the JSA remained on the bus and the tour guide didn't realize this until we were already 30 minutes into our drive back to Seoul. Needless to say, the bus had to turn around and drive another 30 minutes back to the DMZ zone before spending another hour to get back to Seoul. A lot of time was wasted due to such disorganization by the guide and tour operator.

Korean Palace and Market Tour in Seoul Including Insadong and Gyeongbokgung Palace

Seoul, South Korea

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

What you can really expect (not listed in the overview description) is a visit to "purchase" items at a ginseng shop and an amethyst shop where you will encounter pushy salespeople. The entire morning was so rushed, all you heard from the tour guide was to, "walk faster" and to "hurry up." You will breeze through Jogyesa Temple, the Folk Museum, and Gyeongbokgung with basically no free time allocated to explore and take photos. I understand that there is a lot on the itinerary but did not appreciate the fact that everything was so rushed in order to allocate time for ginseng and amethyst shopping, which in my opinion was a complete waste of time.

Seoul History and Culture Small-Group Tour

Seoul, South Korea

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is a great tour option to start off with for first time visitors to Seoul. My tour guide, Sunny, spoke fluent English and provided a lot of useful information. You get to move at your own walking pace so there was ample opportunity for photo stops and exploring. The tour ends at Gwangjang Market, which is a must visit for all foodies. Highly recommended!
