Overall rating

(367 reviews)

Kayla was super! From the day before she tried to organise everything at the best! Super kind and always available for anything. She followed us during the trip giving us very nice explanations. You can really say she loves her job! Very nice place to visit and great trip to choose, by yourself might be bit messy to find the places and move around. Really worth it to spend the money for all we see. Very well organised.

Worked like a charm. Having internet is somewhat essential for navigating the city. I printed the QR code at home and could immediately use it upon arrival. Would definitely recommend

One of the best days spent in Busan, Tomy super helpful and prepared, I highly recommend it. We particularly liked the temple, gamcheon and the cable car over the sea, wonderful!

Amazing, Kayla was a great guide and very knowledgeable, I had a really great time on this day trip. Would highly recommend this trip especially with a local taking us around!

Despite the rain a wonderful trip with clear information of the history of the sites. Lots to see in one day but it didn't feel rushed at all.
