Seoraksan Mountain and Nami Island Tour (2d1n)

Seoraksan Mountain and Nami Island Tour (2d1n) provides you the combined package to Seoraksan Mountain and Nami Island and for 2 days, 1 night. This tour includes transportation by KR speaking driver, hotel, but you can request to include guide, admission fees or meals at extra cost.

First day, we will bring you to Nami Island and you will be transferred to Seoraksan Mountain after lunch. Before hotel check-in, you will have chance of hiking at beautiful valley (called Jujeongol, or Osaek).

Second day, you will start the tour by taking roundtrip cable car to Gwongeumseong Fortress. Take photo of yourself on the background of beautiful mountain at Gwongeumseong Fortress. After going down to cable car station, you will visit Sinheungsa Temple, which is famous for big bronze Buddha and beautiful scenery.

Some people would request us to offer this combined tour in a day. But, we don’t think it is right decision because it require too long driving a day. This means less sightseeing times at each place as well as tiring transportation.

Even though you can take just transportation with driver, if you hire an English, or Chinese speaking guide, you can get more information/impression about Korea.

Gyeongju and Yangdong Village Tour (2d1n)

If you don’t want to omit major attractions in Gyeongju, we recommend you take Gyeongju and Yangdong Village Tour (2d1n). This tour combined Gyeonju and nearby Yandong Village, both were registered as UNESCO World Heritages.

Gyeongju contains a remarkable concentration of outstanding examples of Korean Buddhist art, in the form of sculptures, reliefs, pagodas, and the remains of temples and palaces from the flowering of this form of unique artistic expression. Gyeongju city and its surroundings have inherited traces of the glory that flowered and withered in the ancient Silla Kingdom (BC 57 – AD 935).

Yangdong Village represents Yangban (The yangban were part of the traditional ruling class or gentry of dynastic Korea during Joseon Dynasty.), or confucianism that had been adopted by Joseon Dynasty. Fifty-four historic homes over 200 years old have been preserved. The village preserves folk customs as well as traditional buildings of traditional Joseon Dynasty architecture. Also, this is very similar with Hahoe Village located at Andong.

Even though you can take just transportation with driver, if you hire an English, or Chinese speaking guide, you will get more information/impression about Korea.

Tour by driving guide
We don't cheat the clients by hiding the information - 'The tour will be done by a driving guide.'

If the number of passengers is smaller than 7, or 8, you can save the money by hiring a driving guide rather than hiring guide and driver separately.

Because some travel agencies, or individuals are offering the tours at cheaper prices without indicating the tour inclusions, few people commented that "Your prices are more expensive than **"

Yes, we are willing to offer the tour with a English speaking driving guide for the person/people who travel solely, with 2-3 members, or want to squeeze the price. But, we will cleary indicate the tour inclusions so as not to mislead you.
8% Discount
Due to the recent uprising value of USD versus KRW, we gladly announce that we offer 8% discount for all the prices in our website.
But, for the multi-day tours, if you want to pay by credit card, we need to surcharge the credit card handling fee of 2.9%.
 
We don't provide your own itinerary
Some people said "Please provide a good itinerary for our Korea trip. We will visit Korea during ## Dec 2016 and ## Dec 2016."
But, please understand that we don't provide an itinerary and quote unless you pay for our consultation (US$30 up to 5 days, or 50 for more than 5 days).
Every client has different theme, budget and preference. So, coming to agreement on final itinerary takes at least few days, some times few weeks. Therefore, our limited number of specialists cannot produce an itinerary and quote in response to every inquiry.
 
Our website is not running properly
Due to recent technical change in web hosting company, some functions/pages in our website are not running properly.
Therefore, our new website is under construction in line with new environment.

Apologize for the inconvenience and please be patience until we launch new website in 1-2 weeks.
 
8-seater vs 11-seater van
Some people ask why our van is called as 8-seater van whereas other operators propose 11-seater van. In fact, both are the same Hyundai Grand Starex model.
But, our company don't want to let our client misunderstand the size of this van.
For example, the middle seats don't have head-rest. If you need to put your luggage, the last seat row should be folded.
That's why our company decided to call this van as 8-seater.
10% Discount
Some people informed us their government warns the citizen not to visit South Korea due to the military tension. We, South Korean know this is very repeating gesture of North Korea leader who is afraid of South Korea, or USA.

Therefore, we would like to propose 10% discount for the guide, transport prices as long as you travel Korea by August 2017.
