This was the best tour! It was the perfect mix of sightseeing and hands on activities. The guides were very friendly and knowledgeable and the transportation was excellent. I am recommending this tour to all of my friends who visit Korea! My family and I had an amazing experience.
Our tour guide, Grace, was excellent, and really helped us make the best of the day, despite frigid temperatures and intermittent snow. We were the only guests on the tour, and there was lots of flexibility around how much time we wanted to spend at each of the destinations, which was appreciated. Lunch was very good - a choice between bibimbap and a korean-style beef. After lunch, we arrived at a guest house for the second half of the tour. It started out a bit awkwardly, because you are welcomed into this house, have some tea, and within 10-15 minutes are in your skivvies with the proprietors, whom you just met, changing into the hanbok. Despite this, the hanbok portion of the day was a definite highlight, and we have so many amazing photos and lots of laughs. We loved it, and it was definitely not something that we would usually do on a tour. The kimchi making was fun, although I don't know how regularly I'll be making kimchi at home. All in all, we had a wonderful day with Grace and got lots of great photos, despite the inclement weather.
