Excellent trip covering many of the must see places and cultural heritage highlights. Our guide Hong made the trip all that more special. His English was first class and he was very passionate about the Korean Heritage. His recall of dates and history was astounding.... he has been a guide for 17 years which helps...
The temples speak for themselves but the reason we chose this trip was the variety of places you visit and we were not disappointed.
The Tapsa Temple was very special, the green tea plantation wonderful, we arrived here very early and had the place to ourselves initially.... The Hahoe Village at Andong was very interesting, as its 600 years old and the houses are occupied by private owners so it's a living village not a theme park experience... !!! Also the Jumunjin Fish market was much better than expected, live auctions taking place and a hive of activity. The National Park hike was stunning. These were just a few of the highlights for us.
We were very lucky that initially there was only the two of us for the first four days.... the tour company policy is that the tour takes place even with two booked, Another couple joined us for the last few days heading back to Seoul.
The hotels were all very comfortable, four were excellent, genuinely five star quality and the other two very good.
The meals were all very varied and Korean. A chance to taste all types of Korean food in a variety of settings. Even if your not a fan of Korean food there is generally something you will manage to eat. The breakfasts in the hotel were very good, some of them excellent. Great choice of Korean and western options.
In summary we were so lucky in having such a passionate guide who made the trip extra special. The trip met all our expectations and surpassed them in many case. A very worthwhile and recommended trip.
This trip was my first to Korea and the tour gave me an excellent first impression of this country. The sights vary from Buddhist temples to excavation sites, modern cities, old villages and mountain / sea scenery. The tour was well organized and efficiently guided. The hotels and restaurants were well chosen for location and food quality. I can definitely recommend this tour. I definitely recommend combining this trip with more days in Seoul.
this tour was veyr excellent. the programs were intensif.. we visited a lot of beautiful places. Hotels are good. Our tour guide Charly has very good knowledge
and he took care of us BRAVOOOO. it was really wonderfull.
An excellent overview of Korean culture for English speakers.
I will suggest to visit in autumn or spring. Most of the attractions are not exactly interesting, do some search before booking. The guide Hong was super nice and explained everything really good.
