Amazing tour of Gyeongju, Korea. This ended up being a tour with just the 3 of us, so it ended up being like a private tour. Learned a lot about this once powerful dynasty in Korea. The hotel is somewhat underwhelming, but that is understandable due to the location of the resort. The Korean style spa located in the hotel was not bad either, it has a warm, hot and cold bathing pool area, along with 2 saunas. The tour was nicely timed, we were able to get to see everything and take pictures without the rush.

We are so happy we took this trip. By staying overnight, we were able to see a wide range of historical sites. On the first day we got acquainted the rich history of the Silla dynasty. We saw Anapji Pond and saw an ancient astronomical tower. On the next day we visited the famed Bulguksa Temple and the Seokguram Grotto. Truly beautiful places. We came right before Buddha's birthday and there were colorful lanterns everywhere and lots of people visiting who were dressed in traditional Korean clothes. Our guide did a great job providing comments and context, and he often volunteered to take photos of us. We would highly recommend this visit. The pace is far removed from the hustle and bustle of Seoul. It takes you back in time to a whole different world.

3 star rating: Worth doing December 2017

The journey was comfortable and we liked our guide BK. On the first day we were not impressed with the sight seeing but the second day made up for it. The hotel surroundings and the insides looked good, We however did not like the room. It was too cramped and the furniture looked shabby The beds , however, were clean and the bathroom was ok. We did not like the dinner but the breakfast buffet was good. On the whole the trip was pleasant.
