Highlights of Korea Tour (8d7n)

Highlights of Korea Tour (8d7n) provides you the excellent overview of Korea. This tour includes the variety of experiences about Korea such as ‘from cottage style restaurant to modern & luxurious food restaurant’, ‘from skyscraper to few hundreds years old houses’. Our mission is to give you the chances of visiting non-touristic places, having communication with Korean people as many as possible. We guarantee you will be an expert about Korea at the end of the tour.

The actual route may be changed from the proposed itinerary. For example, we would like to avoid visiting Jeju Island on Friday, or Saturday because the availability of hotel rooms and domestic air tickets are much lower than weekdays.

This tour doesn’t include Mt. Seoraksan and that is the difference with Highlights of Korea Tour (10d9n).

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 Seoul, or Korea.

Hwaseong Fortress and Korean Folk Village Tour

If you join Hwaseong Fortress and Korean Folk Village Tour, you can visit Hwaseong Fortress and Korean Folk Village in a day without transportation issue.

Hwaseong Fortress and Korean Folk Village are located at Suwon city, which is 40Km away from Seoul.
That’s why Korea Private Tours put together these two places in the package.

Hwaseong Fortress was built over two and a half years, from 1794 to 1796, according to the designs of the architect Jeong Yak-yong, who would later become a renowned leader of the Silhak movement. Silhak, which means practical learning, encouraged the use of science and industry, and Jeong incorporated fortress designs from Korea and China along with contemporary science into his plans. Use of brick as a building material for the fortress and employment of efficient pulleys and cranes were also due to the influence of Silhak. (referenced from wikipedia)

Korean Folk Village is a kind of theme park hosting houses, old lifestyles, performances of Chosun dynasty (i.e., 200-500 years ago). Therefore, you will feel like a folk walking around the real old village.

Suwon city is famous for Galbi (marinated grilled beef rib), so you can choose this Special Meal option.

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.

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.
