The Mumbling Guide Who Could Not Drive

“This guide which was provided for this tour could not speak English and his driving was horrible. We almost got in 3 or 4 accidents. The driver should be evaluated by a doctor. I.think he has the early stages of Parkinsons syndrome
The tour given by this guide was really a waste of my money and time. I spent most of the tour asking him about what he was trying to say.
The trip started off by me trying to find my driver at the Seoul airport. He would not me like a normal driver in the arrival area. I had to hunt for him for 90 minutes. When I found him there was no offer to help me with my luggage. Very poor service
The main guide had no respect for me as a client
I would avoid using this company.
I requested a first class ticket for a train ride to Busan and they booked my ticket right next to the toilet”
One Day Korea responded to this review on : “Dear Sir,

We would like to thank you for taking the time to write about your experience with us. We truly appreciate it since our customer's feedback is one of the most important aspects that allow us to improve our services.
We sincerely apologize for the fact that our service didn’t live up to your expectations.

We would like to let you know that we are sorry that you didn’t feel safe during the transport but we can assure you that he has no medical conditions forbidding him to drive. As we want to provide the best environment for guests, our staff members take annual physical exams to make sure that they are perfectly healthy. We will make sure that our drivers are apt to drive in all types of situations and traffic.

Regarding the seat on the train, when we made the booking for your seat in First-class, the seat was chosen automatically for your way to Busan, once you told us by a message that you wanted to have another seat for your way back we changed the seat to make sure you didn’t get the seat near the door.
We will make sure to ensure the best seats possible from now on so that this would not happen.

We wish you would have reached out to us during the tour, we would have taken immediate measures to make your tour was perfect, just like when you told us about the seat on the train we would have done our utmost to accommodate you.
Once again we would like to let you know that this review will be useful for us and that we will keep on doing our best.
We really want to let you know how much we are sorry for this and that you will be able to trust us again.

“We had a wonderful time with our guide, Jay. Started the day with pick up from our hotel at the scheduled time, Jay was very friendly, polite, and funny. He gave us useful tips and helped us take awesome photos.
I really liked Korean food. We tried mini rice rolls, noodles, raw fish and much more, all very tasty.
The highlights of this tour were Seoul and green tea field, such a beautiful view and things to discover.
You should definitely ask for Jay to be your guide during this tour, we highly recommend it!”
Fantastic tour

“This trip was Fantastic. We visited Koreas most famous places with our guide Justin, we particularly loved Gyeongju and the incredible Bulguksa temple. The whole thing went really well. Justin was always on time and knowledgeable. We experienced Korean traditional food like bibimbap, Korean pancakes and we even tried the famous live octopus!!!!
The car was very comfortable and clean. Justin is a very kind host and we would thoroughly recommend this trip.”
