Start your tour with hotel pick-up and head to Dalmaji Road, a small walkway on the corner of Songjeong beach with beautiful cherry blossoms and pine trees. You will fall in love with the landscape of blue sea, sandy seashore, and clear sky. Next, visit Haedong Yonggungsa Temple, which is situated on the coast of the north-eastern portion of Busan.

We went with Larry, very attentive and friendly. We were a fairly large group, but not overbearing. We went to see 4 places, we did not have much time in each place, but we could enjoy the visit well. You can bring food for lunch, but if not, Larry will take you to a small place to eat bulgogui, there was also a vegetarian option. Very comfortable to have transportation included in the entire tour. Recommendable.

It was a very amazing day, we learned a lot and saw many places. It will be a long day, so come prepared. But would do it again. Were able to take photos of so many pretty places, had an amazing lunch and our guide gave us the best tour. Also very good tour if you are a solo traveller. You will see a lot for a day only, so be on time ;) Driving in AC car at 29C degrees outside was very comfortable.

Was a bit disappointed bec the weather did not cooperate and it was raining too much, but nevertheless still beautiful and it was a great experience. Just too bad our guide did not really guide us thru about the history of the area. He was just literally standing next to us, but he’s so nice just that it seems he doesnt have knowledge of the place.

you can visit main attraction in one day. Haedong temple, taejongdae lighthouse, sodong beach busan cruise and gamcheon village. Touring in a bus with the price i think its very good.

The trip was well prepared and led by a great guide - Larry - our guide is very professional and contact. I recommend!
