Authentic experience of South Korea

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.

As this is only my second group trip I have a limited experience with comparing these types of trips but I thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Our guide was knowledgeable and filled any gaps in our itinerary with valuable insightful excursions. All key sights were covered in the trip. Unfortunately we did not get to go to the JSA, however this did not detract from the the overall visit to the DMZ. The DMZ felt very surreal and to be able to peak into North Korea was an experience. Seoul is your typical city, traffic included but the subway system is very easy to negotiate and cheap and clean. There are plenty of lively markets to immerse oneself into the culture and to sample various food on a stick. I would recommend catching the Nanta show. This was amazing. The scenery was breathtaking especially in Seoraksan National Park and Jeju Island. For a country that had to completely rebuild it is amazing how the government was able to cultivate such wonderful green spaces. The food on offer was second to none and I did not find the food too spicy at all, although when given the option I chose the least spicy option.
Very Good

Good. I had a lot of fun, and the CEO was efficient and helpful. But some improvement is to be done on the transport and the accomodation. A detailed journey (from start to finish) should also be shared to each client prior to the trip.
