All in all, a great trip to places worth seeing. Unfortunately, it took a long time with the coach, partly because the participants were collected at three different locations and in the evening mainly because of the traffic. Even though lunch was not included, the given location was authentic and the food was really tasty.

The tour was very interesting - we got to see several UNESCO world heritage sights. The bus was comfortable and on time. Everything was very smooth with good instructions from the lovely tour guide. We really enjoyed Nami as our tour guide, as she was very friendly and kind hearted. We can totally recommend this tour and would do it again!

Guide and driver were both good. Biggest problem was tour schedule, which should have returned to Busan by 8 pm before restaurant kitchens close, instead of 10 pm. Perhaps start the tour an hour earlier and remove the overcrowded & underwhelming final stop.
