“This trip was Fantastic. We visited Korea’s 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.”
