Our guide, Justin, was very accommodating and helpful. The hote're glad we took this tour, there really is not that much to see in South Korea. Very impressive highway system, tall apartment buildings all over the place and advertising signs festooning most every building.
We were exposed to a good degree of Korean history and culture but that's about it.
Great tour if you are looking for a tour around South Korea.
What made our tour exceptional was thanks to our guide, Brandon. He had a wonderful sense of humor and a frank insightful narrative. He was very accommodating to meet the needs of our dynamic group from various backgrounds and ages. Provided mini gifts and snacks throughout our trip, which I found out later was paid from his own expense. I wanted to try various dishes in Korea, and he provided all the information needed to enjoy them during the tour. We were able to connect very well with our guide Brandon, and made us feel like we had an older Korean brother showing us around.
Thank you so much 형
We had such a good time on our tour. Our guide, Justin, was amazing!! We had a 7 month old baby too, and they made it super easy to travel with him. We were able to see and do a lot on this trip it was definitely packed full of things to do and see. It would have been nice to spend more time in some areas, but then it would probably have to be a longer trip!!
We highly recommend this tour as we went all over South Korea and visited the highlights of every city. The countryside is just so beautiful with the fall foliage. The rice fields were orange in color ready to harvest. Mt. Seorak Mountain was yellow, orange, red and green in color. I never realized that South Korea has so many UNESCO World Heritage Site until we joined this tour. We have a thousand pictures because every place that we went were picture perfect. Seokguram Temple and Bulguksa Temple were just amazing. The hotel accommodations with breakfast included were all good.
I shot a picture of what the countryside look like in one frame Mountains, Sea, Islands, Skyscrapers and Rice fields amazing!!!
Our tour guide, Miss Mina, made this tour very memorable. She treated us like a family and took care of all of us. She has vast knowledge of Korean history and every place that we went. Without Miss Mina, we wouldn't love this tour so much. We were all sad when the tour ended and saying farewell to Miss Mina.
8/10 Look for K-shuttle as no Viator sign.
9/10 if bus had less noise and toilet.
Great tour guide Justin Choi, one of the best. Great historical knowledge, telling us the history and stories behind sites, with a sense of humour. Great food advice.

1. Value for money
2. The tour company K Shuttle, provided an excellent tour guide named Mina. She was very patient, caring and looked after us very well. She was also good in explaining the old history of Korea. Always smiled and passion in her job! Well done, Mina. We were given plenty of times exploring the tourist attraction.
3. Hotel accommodation, 1st night stay was good clean and comfy hotel room. 2nd night was not too bad. But 3rd and 4th night was pretty bad. Not only both hotel were old but we found hair in the bath tub and basin poor housekkeping. The locations was out from cbd area, hard to find restaurant for dinner.
Overall, it was quite an enjoyable tour.
