Excellent tour with a very friendly, knowledgeable guide called Beth. People carrier vehicle with only 3 of us. Very comfortable with AC and water provided. Picked up and dropped off right at our AirBNB flat. All the sites were covered and were extremely interesting. Beth very kindly took photos for us and emailed them later. Lunch was typical Korean cuisine. Highly recommend this tour.
This tour was the absolute best way to see Busan! Steve was an awesome tour guide, he spoke perfect English and was very knowledgeable of both Korean and American culture. We had such a great time exploring the city with him! This tour covers areas that would be way too complicated to get to by subway, like the temple and the mountain. For lunch, we had options of where to go and we ended up picking this awesome kimbap place that had the best cream cheese and sweet walnut kimbap. The fish market was a little traumatizing, but again super fun experience. I highly recommend this tour to see the best parts of Busan with no stress :
My husband and I booked a full day Busan tour with our 5 year old son. We were the only people on the tour and had a very personal experience with Steve as our tour guide. Steve was well educated and spoke fluent English. He gave us alot of insight on Korean culture and history and was very patient with our 5 year old. My son, who is adopted from Korea even asked about Steve the following day stating he wished he was with us to translate Korean! This was the best tour we have taken and would have booked another had we had the time.
This was awesome. Steve made the trip even special. I didn't book it to be a private tour but just ended up that way. He was funny and knows all the ins and outs of Busan. He even arranged for us to be dropped off on the location that we wanted. It felt like a private tour since we got to eat what we wanted and got to see what we wanted. He accommodated us very well. Never a dull moment with Steve. Thank you much for making out stay in Busan a very enjoyable experience.
Well worth the money. This was a great tour and very well planned. Our tour guide Beth and her driver were excellent. Their local knowledge was very good and both spoke very good English. Beth is a fantastic guide, full of energy and happiness. Our diver was one of the best, he took no chances and drove us safely and comfortably.
You get to see many interesting places in a good amount of time. I can 100 recommend this tour. I was very impressed with both Viator and Busan Tourism Centre.
What an excellent tour given with tour guide, Steve!
Our family of 7 max for this tour, ages 7-80, all physically mobile. We were looking for a tour to do during our cruise port stop, since time was of the essence. None of the tours offered through the cruise line appealed to us, so we went online. We found and tried Viatour for the first time. I had some concerns when I booked so I called Viatour directly before booking. They were able to address all of our questions with professionalism, write down details, and as a part of their booking requirements, I needed to call through them to connect with the tour company directly to re verify those details. I was glad to do it. A few of those questions included: adjusting the pick up and return time to match better with when the cruise ships arrival/departure time, how would we know where to meet up, and adjusting the lunch meal to accommodate for a vegetarian meal.
We decided to debark the ship about 15 minutes earlier so we could be waiting for our guide. As soon as we got off the ship, Steve was already waiting for us, holding a sign with our names on it. So easy! And spoke perfect English with a slight Texas accent. There was a money exchange at the port, so we changed a little bit for snack money, and off we climbed into the tour mini van. He was eager to move ahead of the larger tour groups. Because we were our own private tour, we were able to adjust the times here and there. Our schedule was super tight to be able to see all the sights listed with thoroughness. Steve let us know this at the beginning, and this worked just fine for us. He was very organized, good driver, shared lots of information of the locals spots. We did not feel we wasted anytime, and well worth the cost. Thank you, Steve and Viatour!
