    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!!

    Aloha! We highly recommend the tour of Busan. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. He even gave us a small gift. If you are looking to visit a picturesque village visit Busan, plenty of instagram worthy photos to be taken. LandLtravelswithaloha

    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.

We were three very hungover friends that got up early having got up even earlier the day before for the DMZ. We turned up coffee in hand scoffing muffins from the local paris baguette coffee shop. We were greeted by the most helpful and welcoming host, Stephanie, who welcomed us onto a trippy tour bus with cool interiors and curtains, was wild. Our first stop was the garden of morning calm, which is basically some mega botanical garden some Korean bloke decided to plant because he saw similar stuff elsewhere in the world and was inspired. It’s pretty damn cool, there is a 1000 year old tree there that looks like a bonsai on steroids. A sight to be seen. There were many flowers and cherry blossoms and I did feel pretty calm after being in the garden of morning calm, albeit it was basically the afternoon. We then went to Nami island and we ate some spicy noodles and then zip lined from a 300ft tower into a chill island in the country side with more cherry blossoms and strange statues. Was also very trippy but pleasant and perfect to bumble around in after having consumed your Bodyweight in local Soju. All in all, was a solid day out and felt pleased to get out of the city. The best part was Stephanie who basically hooked up us clueless hungover English blokes with restaurant reservations for SoSeoul (a recommended Michelin star restaurant) and Mr Ahn’s Craft Makgoelli (another bomb Michelin recommended restaurant) - Stephanie was an absolute legend. Thank you Stephanie. Stephanie for president.

It was well organized in terms of transportation. The Garden Of Morning Calm is nice but actually could be skipped, it feels more like a tourist thing than anything else. Lots and lots of tourists (not even high season). The guide was not a guide at all. She knew nothing about the destinations and she could not speak English. The only thing you get for this money is the entrance and the transportation, forget anything about a guide, I tried asking questions about Nami island but it was the first time she was there too, isnt a guide supposed to know things about the destinations? I think you could take public transportation and pay the entrance fees yourself and save some money. :) Nami island was nice too, but again very very touristic. Tourism is the main income for this island.

If you want to go to Nami Island because you’re a fan of the KDrama filmed there, then by all means. Otherwise, there’s little of interest and the four hours were way too long. The Garden of Morning Calm was lovely and definitely worth the visit, the duration was perfect. The day trip booking includes transport (very comfortable) from Seoul to both locations and back. The guide was helpful, giving tips and info, but they don’t accompany you on the tour at all.

Our first time to Nami Island was amazing thanks to our great tour guide Jonathan! Despite going on the busiest day of the year with lots of traffic, Jonathan remained calm and upbeat and shared many stories along the way. It was a very pleasant and enjoyable day and would recommend this tour to anyone thinking of doing it! We took lots of amazing photos and got to see some beautiful sights with the fall foliage. Looking forward to doing more K-Tour Story tours!

I was anticipated to go to Nami Island and The Garden of Morning Calm. It’s lucky to see snowing in Nami Island and it makes the Island prettier. Yet, the time was not quite enough (only 4 hours) to walk around. Yet, spending 2 hours in The Garden of Morning Calm was a bit too long. It’s not that worth to see the lightings with 2 hours. I guess it’d be much more better to visit in the morning time, or at least with sunshine.
The tour guide Jayce was so nice and kind. He can speak in English and Mandarin very well. I am very satisfied with his service. Unfortunately, I was quite confused with the instruction of meet up place mentioned in Klook. It said next to Myeongdong Exit 2 in front of the Hotel Prince, which at the end was just next to Exit 2 in front of North Face. I hope it can be improved.

Garden is absolutely fantastic . Nami is also great but... our guide was kind and clear. Nami island is technically 4h but not really. Once you hop off bus you have to take ferry, you need time for lunch and there are restaurants so you take quite time, and if bus leaves at 16:30 you need to take ferry at 16h maybe... so you maybe only enjoy 2h around. Would recommed to bring food and to negotiate well leaving hours...

I found the experience disappointing, for various reasons.
First, it was not the best season, the foliage was still green.
Second, the bus took forever to collect everyone, to get there, and back, and was uncomfortable and poorly equipped (no wifi in particular).
Third, it was horribly crowded in Nami Island, which is incredibly touristy.
Fourth, the guide's explanations were mediocre and everything repeated in Chinese - it would be better to have separate English and Chinese language tours.
I should have stayed in Seoul, where there are many nicer things to see a few metro stations away.

The whole experience was nothing short of amazing. The tour bus came at exactly the right time and picked us up near the subway station. Our guide, Rachel, spoke fluent English and provided helpful tips for our tour at Nami Island and Garden of the Morning Calm.

I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting South Korea.

Our guide Hannah was so sweet and funny. Both places (Nami island & The garden of morning calm) were astounding. It’s a must see! Very easy find the meeting place. However there are multiple other guides so you should ask them all to see where their destination is to find your guide if you are not in the chat groups.
