This was a great tour. Michael the best guide. Nothing too small for him to help with, and lots of fun too. The cherry blossom outside the Hanok was amazing and the night we spent in the village very peaceful. Make sure to visit the mask museum before attending the performance, which is very interesting and lively. The kids enjoyed it too. The village is very special - Over 300 years old and it feels like it has never changed. After the frenetic pace of Seoul, it is a fantastic place to chill out for a day or two.

My sister found this company online and I'm so glad she booked with them. Our party of 4 consisted of my sister, our elderly parents and myself. Our super guide Jun Eun-jong met us at our hotel, went over what sights we wanted to cover and understood our need to be flexible depending on how our parents were feeling. I cannot say enough about Jun! Her English is excellent, she is knowledgeable native of Busan, great sense of humor and just an all around joy. The vehicle we had was perfect for the four of us, easy for my parents to get in and out of, and very clean. Jun let us set the pace of the tours, never hurrying us and made sure everyone's needs were met. Lunch at a local restaurant was very good, ordered ahead as to minimize wait time. The food was good but more importantly for my mom, it was super clean. Our day lasted from 9 am to just about 5 pm, we covered what we had wanted and more. I specifically asked Jun for her business card because I would recommend her in a heart beat to anyone going to Busan. Thanks Jun!
