      Excellent day trip around Busan!
      Awesome day trip! Lucy our guide was very knowledge and enthusiastic. She made an effort to connect with everyone in the group and injected her own personal experiences and anecdotes into the tour, which added to the experience. This was a good way to see many local sites in one day. Highly recommend!

      10/10 you need to book this tour :)
      Mira & Danny were the best guides ever! They gave us lots of free time to explore and explained the history of each place on the way & once we arrived. Additionally, both are lovely photographers and were always willing to take a picture. My family and I really enjoyed our tour with them as we were able to see a variety of things around Busan. I highly recommend this experience!!

      Busan full day tour
      Lucy (our English speaking tour guide in Busan) from KTOURSTOREY. She is chatty. Meaning, she is good at her job and knowledgeable. Thanks to her suggestions - we managed to cover most of the areas we wanted to visit namely Gamcheon village, Huinnyeoul village, Songdo beach (Skywalk including air cruise cable car) and Haedong Yonggungsa temple etc.

      Bay View on the Boardwalk Myrtle Beach South Carolina avoid if possible
      Bay View on the Boardwalk Myrtle Beach SC was a disaster, out side of our Hotel stay we enjoyed the family festivities, but the hotel rm was small, no sitting chair, dirty vents caked with dust, dusty lamps, dresser drawers didnt line up, managers poor customer service, thermostat could not control the ac, it was cold 4 out of the 5 days, as a senior, I am not ecpecting the world, but I paid 1450,00 for 5 days, experiencing these made me want to report this to someone, its a vacation to remeber for good and horrible reasons, I had no sitting chair in my rm, they have 2 plastic chairs on the ba,cony but it didnt matter we ended up staying out of our rm because it stayed so cold

      It´s worth it, very nice nature. The hiking trials are a bit strenuous. You should be physically fit for this. But there is also an option to use a cable car. Organizationally, everything went well and the guide was very nice and courteous.

      Great day out
      Excellent day out of Seoul. Everything was well organised and on time. So nice to be driven around. We had pizza for lunch on Nami Island which was lovely; we also hired bikes to get around the island. Highly recommend!

      Great day tour of Busan
      Our tour guide Mira was terrific. We have enough time to visit all the places. During lunch she made sure everyone's lunch was taken care of. Ask for Mira on your next Busan tour. Highly recommended!

      Fun Stuff to do while in South Korea
      It was an amazing small group tour. Our guide Heather was very kind hearted, passionate and very considerate. It was very interesting to immerse where BTS started, raised to stardom and inspired a lot of people.

    The Haedong Yonggungsa is a very cool historical place well worth the time. The 2.5 mile blueline was ok. The issue I had is most of the seascape was blocked or partially blocked. The cable ride gives a better view but is mat part of the tour. The Gamcheon culture village isn’t worth the time. What could have been a great historical experience turns out to be a tourist trap. The final stop was the cable ride at Songdo beach. This attraction provided a great view of the beach area and the various ship awaiting access to the harbor. Overall, B / B- the Gamcheon village, in my opinion, is a waste of time.

    BLUF- B. Despite a D- on one of the stops, the tour was informative and interesting.
    First, a big shout out to our guide, Roy S; he was an outstanding and professional guide. I would highly recommend him.
    The overall cost for two adults was $125 for four sites. The rendezvous site was easy to find, and the bus was comfortable.
    The first stop was Haedong Yonggungsa Temple. Haedong Yonggung Temple is a Buddhist temple in Gijang-gun, Busan, South Korea. The temple complex is large and one of few in Korea to be set on the seaside. There are lots of stairs, and some are narrow. Be careful; people get rather pushy, and I’ve seen some folks take a tumble. A
    The second stop was Haeundae Blueline Park and Beach Train. Some folk see the beach train as a little cheezy, but I liked it. It was a short 2.5-mile train ride near the shoreline. My only complaint was that too many buildings blocked another lovely view. B-
    The third stop was Gamcheon Village. It’s history is a far cry from what it is now. Historically, it was a displaced civilian shanty town during the Korean War, particularly during its darkest period, the Busan Perimeter. Now, it’s nothing but, in my opinion, a tourist trap. D- -
    The final stop was the cable car ride across Songdo Beach. This ride provided an excellent view of Songdo Beach and the Port of Busan, which, according to sources, is the oldest beach in Busan. B

    A day that promised to be a little gloomy, because of rain and wind due to the arrival of the typhoon....but that was without counting on the kindness, dedication and ingenuity of our guide Roy.
    The capsules are a very fun activity...you will eat in a very local restaurant (fish lovers will enjoy it!) Visit to the National Maritime Museum of Korea (about-face from planing) and finally a charming stroll with lots of little cafes each one as cute as the next...
    Thanks to you Roy..and of course also thanks to your colleague Joy
