South Korea Tour Reviews

4 - Very Good
Based on 42 customer reviews
A must-see-and-do trip for anyone wanting to visit South Korea
5 - Excellent
  • Lopez.B
“The trip was short but every moment was memorable. We were lucky enough to be able to visit some of the country's must-see places. We took so many photos and videos during this trip since the scenery was breathtaking. The hotels are very clean and well located, which allowed us to walk in the evening after the tours, breakfast was included which made it easier for us to get ready in the morning before heading out as we prefer to start our day with a full belly, simple, good and effective. The transport, which was a van allowed us to rest and to enjoy the ride as it was only my husband and me and our tour guide Jay. Jay was very professional, passionate and friendly, it was a real pleasure traveling with him, we asked him tons of questions and he always made sure to reply to all of them and took his time to give us explanations. He knew when to give us spaces and created a fun vie during the meals, helping us discover the Korean cuisine. We will not forget this experience and we highly recommend this tour it was worth every penny.”
A taste of Korea
4 - Very Good
  • Anonymous
“I thoroughly enjoyed this trip & can recommend it. This trip is not only a great introduction to Korea but a good way to visit Asia if you haven't been to the Far East before as compared to other countries in this region, it is clean, safe, and developed. However, to get the most out of it you have to be prepared to explore during your free time. This trip puts you in the position, by giving you the opportunity to see some wonderful things that are not on the itinerary. For example the Seoul Tower with the wonderful Seasons table all you can eat Korean restaurant, or the Sun Cruise Resort and surrounding area in Gyeongpo, a 20 minute taxi ride from your hotel. Taxis are cheap and a good way to get round. Budget wise I would suggest you allow about 20 per day on food. The food here is lovely but expensive. Credit cards are widely accepted but I would take US Dollars or Euros to change into the local currency, the Won. I found it hard to change the Pound, with the only place being a handful of banks in the major cities. When you arrive in Seoul I suggest you change your money you need for the trip then, as changing it in other areas other than Busan and Jeju was difficult. Even though ATMs are widely available for debit cards, you have to look for a global one which we found difficult finding and it was hit and miss whether the card would be accepted. You must have patience as service can be slow and language can be a barrier. My main criticism is we didn't have enough time in Busan; it was almost a fleeting visit, which doesn't do the place justice. I would like to have more time there at the expense of the temple stay, which in my opinion added little value to the trip. There was also too much emphasis on Buddhism. My biggest surprise coming here was the number of churches I saw, and finding out that they aren't devoutly religious or follow one particular faith, just a mix of multi-faith and non-religious groups. For example, there are more Christians and other religions than Buddhists for instance 29 % are Christian and only 24 % are Buddhist. With this in mind, I would like to reduce the number of temples that are visited by exploring the other faiths and learning more of the contemporary recent history that makes up this dynamic nation. Highlights; (1) the big Yakcheonsa Buddhist temple in Jeju, which we allowed to freely photograph; (2) DMZ; (3) The museum in Busan, which explained in concise terms the history of this nation. Low points; (1) Temple stay, which was a complete waste of time and added nothing to my understanding of Korea. This should be made an optional extra or cut out completely, with time better spent in Busan. (2) Not enough time in Busan and war memorial. (3) Too many markets and temples visited - only one or two would do. Overall I can recommend this trip to anyone who wants a taste of Korea but to get the most out of it, you must have a sense of adventure and explore the surrounding area in your free time. 4/5.”

South Korea - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

With a history that dates back to the year 2,300 BC, holidays in South Korea will feature a number of ancient ruins, historical sites and a deep-rooted culture. The country’s excellent public transit system, fast-paced lifestyle, futuristic architecture and compact size also makes it easy to explore its various attractions. Plan a trip to South Korea for unique and off-the-beaten-path adventures in those remote islands, rustic hanok houses and serene villages. 

Tour Highlights

  • Travel to Seoul to visit the royal residences of Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokung, walk along the Han River and enjoy shopping in the Myeong-dong district.
  • Explore the National Folk Museum in Seoul in order to understand Korean history and culture.
  • Take a guided tour to the Demilitarized Zone from Seoul. You will see a heavily-fortified border between North Korea and South Korea featuring bunkers, land mines, tank traps and much more.
  • Stop by in Gyeongju, the cultural capital of South Korea, to see many archaeological sites, temples and rock carvings. Don’t miss to visit the Gyeongju National Museum, which displays jewelry, weapons and other ancient artifacts.
  • Appreciate outstanding natural beauty of the Seoraksan National Park embodied through striking rock formations, dense forests and hot springs. Additionally, Seoraksan supports rich wildlife and boasts old temples.

Travel Tips

  • Write down the name of your intended destination when you inquire about the directions to the locals.
  • Pay attention when you cross and walk along the streets in Seoul since drivers are generally aggressive.
  • Stay away from protests and other large gatherings.
  • If you travel at night, use only registered taxis and the public transport.
  • ATMs are ubiquitous in major cities, and not all of them accept foreign credit cards.
