The Republic of Korea - commonly known as South Korea, is a beautiful country with rich history and culture, and a wealth of attractions. Boasting vibrant, modern cities, enchanting ancient sites, Buddhist temples and mouth wateringly delectable cuisine to boot. On The Go Tours runs both group and private tours to South Korea escorted by local English speaking guides, and in 2013 were recognised as the Best Holiday Company to Central and East Asia by the prestigious British Travel Awards.
Our tours to South Korea are peppered with some lovely local experiences - take a stroll along serene Cheonggyecheon stream in Seoul, spend a night in a traditional Hanok Village, chow down on a traditonal Korean BBQ, watch the comical 'Jump' martial arts show in Seoul, or go hiking with the locals in Mt Hallasan National Park on Jeju Island.
The heart and soul of the nation is Seoul, the captivating 600 year old capital city which is busy reinventing itself as an energetic, high tech metropolis, embracing all that is modern, yet with a firm eye on it's past, with several historic palaces, temples and its ancient city walls. In the south, the cultural capital is undoubtedly Gyeongju. Dating back to 56 BC, it is known as ‘the museum without walls’ due to its wealth of historic sites including the World Heritage Listed Seokguram Grotto and Bulguksa Temple. For a small country, the picturesque landscape of South Korea is surprisingly diverse, from the towering granite peaks and lush green valleys of Seoraksan National Park, to endless glistening rice paddy fields, rugged mountainous ski resorts, sandy beaches and beautiful offshore islands such as volcanic Jeju Island.
Visit South Korea with its stunning beauty and vibrant culture on our week long South Korean Express guided group tour. Fully escorted by an expert English speaking South Korean tour guide, staying in comfortable hotels and with plenty of guided sightseeing, you are sure to have an enjoyable, fun and relaxing holiday to South Korea.
