Stop At: Songdo Skywalk, 129-4, Amnam-dong, Seo-gu, Busan South Korea

The sky walk has drawn attention as the first of its kind in Korea, and for its long, curving trail. To date, the first section of the walk
has been installed and measures 104 m, stretching around Geobukseom Island. When completed next February, the Songdo Sky Walk will
set a new record as the longest ocean walk in Korea at 296 m in length and 2.3 m in width.
The sky walk will also have a viewing platform stretching out into the water to give visitors a spectacular view of the coastline.
Transparent tempered glass was also used in sections of the flooring for the walk, allowing for clear views of the waters below and
giving people the true sensation of walking on water. It is positioned 5.5~8 m above sea level making it far closer to the sea than
the Oryukdo Sky Walk, which is positioned 37 m above the shore, along a seashore cliff. Everyone will be able to enjoy the thrilling and
exciting experience of watching blue waves under their feet.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Gamcheon Culture Village, 203, Gamnae 2-ro, Saha-gu, Busan 49368 South Korea

Gamcheon Culture Villiage is formed by houses built in staircase-fashion on the foothills of a coastal mountain, earning this village the nickname of "Machu Picchu of Busan." The many alleys cutting through this community are vibrantly decorated with murals and sculptures created by the residents.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Yongdusan Park, 37-55, Yongdusan-gil, Jung-gu, Busan 48950 South Korea

Yongdusan Park, one of the most popular mountains in Busan
Yongdusan in downtown Busan, is one of the 3 well-known mountains in Busan. Its old name is Songhyunsan, which means a mountain has a view of the sea through the dense fine tree forest. Later the name has changed into Yongdusan. It came from its shape, which is similar to dragon head and people thought it has a spirit to defeat enemies coming over the sea.
On the mountain were shrine built by Japanese people during Japanese colonial role, but now are Cheokhwabi monument (the stone monument to the exclusion of foreigners from the country), Chunghontap (memorial tower for Korean war victims), 4.19 Revolution monument (the student's anti-government revolt), the statue of General Lee Sunsin(the great commander in Joseon Dynasty period(1392-1910)) and Busan tower.
During Korea war, displaced people built houses on it even on the top, but 2 times of big fires took all them away making it bald mountain. Since then, fierce efforts to plant trees have created such beautiful park. The name of the park was once Unam park in the time of the Liberal Party’s ruling but it went back to Yungdosan park after April revolution (1960). It is a place with beautiful scenery. Especially the night landscape from Busan tower is magnificent.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: BIFF Square, Nampo-dong, Jung-gu, Busan South Korea

Busan’s modern movie district was originally little more than a pair of cinemas that were built following Korea’s liberation from Japanese colonial rule over half a century ago. However, major renovations took place ahead of the first Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) in 1996, and the newly transformed district was named BIFF Square on August 14, 1996

Stop At: Gukje Market, 38, Gukjesijang 2-gil, Jung-gu, Busan 48946 South Korea

Following the Korean War, refugees who had fled to Busan set up stalls in order to make a living, and this was the beginning of the Gukje Market (gukje meaning "international"). The Gukje Market is one of Korea’s largest markets; each alleyway is crowded with stalls, and it connects to the Bupyeong Market, Kkangtong Market, and other smaller markets. The market stocks such a wide variety of goods, that you can find almost everything you need right here.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Jagalchi Market, Nampo-dong, Jung-gu, Busan South Korea

The Jagalchi Market is Korea's largest seafood market. After the Korean War the market solidified itself as a fish market. Most of the people who sell fish are women, so the women who sell here are called 'Jagalchi Ajumma,' 'ajumma' meaning middle-aged or married women.
This market represents Busan and is famous throughout the country. If you visit you can eat fresh raw fish right at the market. Even these days you can see women selling mackerel, sea squirts (ascidians) and whale meat on wooden boxes along the road.

Duration: 30 minutes

Awesome Review, Strongly Recommended!!!

We did the tour on 28th June, our tour guide was Beth. She was very informative, understanding and had really good English. We learnt a lot about Korea especially Busan off course. She also gave great recommendations. Especially when she recommended we get dropped at Haeundae beach that day as the next day we planned would be raining. It really helped us out. If you’re thinking of joining this tour, I would strongly recommend as your cover a lot in a day and also get to learn some history. Thank you again Beth for an awesome day!
Excellent Guide

I enjoyed getting to see the main highlights of Busan in one day, by van. Busan is a large city! Our tour guide was friendly and helpful and I enjoyed talking with him and the other tour guest. I enjoyed the skywalk at the harbor, the lookout view, the beach, and just seeing all of Busan. I would recommend this tour to others!

Our tour guide, Steve, had lived in the United States for fifteen years. Not only was his English great, but he also understood the nuances of the language and American culture. His knowledge of Busan and South Korea was fantastic and we all learned a lot from Steve. More than that, our personal interactions were great. I suppose the best way to describe our experience was that after a while, it was as if Steve were just the knowledgeable person in our group, rather than a stranger who was our guide. There were five of us in the rout group and we all agreed that this was one of the best tours we had been on. It wasn't just the knowledge we gained seeing Busan and learning about the history and the culture. It was also because we all, including Steve, just seemed to have a great time together. I would highly recommend the tour and, for the English-speaking Americans, you couldn't have a better tour guide than Steve.

Excellent tour with a very friendly, knowledgeable guide called Beth. People carrier vehicle with only 3 of us. Very comfortable with AC and water provided. Picked up and dropped off right at our AirBNB flat. All the sites were covered and were extremely interesting. Beth very kindly took photos for us and emailed them later. Lunch was typical Korean cuisine. Highly recommend this tour.

Awesome tour! It's an excellent way to see the highlights of Busan if you're on tight schedule. I had Steve as the tour guide and he made the tour. He kept the day light and fun but made sure we left the tour with added knowledge on Korean culture and history.

This tour was the absolute best way to see Busan! Steve was an awesome tour guide, he spoke perfect English and was very knowledgeable of both Korean and American culture. We had such a great time exploring the city with him! This tour covers areas that would be way too complicated to get to by subway, like the temple and the mountain. For lunch, we had options of where to go and we ended up picking this awesome kimbap place that had the best cream cheese and sweet walnut kimbap. The fish market was a little traumatizing, but again super fun experience. I highly recommend this tour to see the best parts of Busan with no stress :
