The tour was excellent. From arrival at Seoul airport I was looked after by both the taxi drivers and the tour guides. Mr Don gave me a tour of Seoul and escorted me to Gyeongju and to Busan. Throughout that part of the trip Mr Don took me to Palaces, Temples, Museums and Markets. Throughout he imparted his knowledge of Korea and history. Taking me through the museums he explained many items of interest.

On Jeju Island Kim was magnificent. Due to low cloud on the mountains with my agreement she changed the itinerary that day enabling me to see more of the Island but able the following day to still visit the mountain. She put additional items into the time I was on the Island so I received a real flavour of this place. Her knowledge of the Island was very high even down to giving advice on types of Korean dishes to eat and a range of venues for dinner. From leaving Heathrow to my arrival back the whole experience was 100%. I cannot rate your service highly enough and will certainly be using your tours again.”
