Full description
Nami Island is a half-moon-shaped isle, and on it is the grave of General Nami, who led a great victory against the rebels in the 13th year of the 7th king of the Joseon Dynasty - King Sejo, who reigned from 1455 to 1468. Nami Island also declared its cultural independence and was reborn as the Naminara Republic. It has its own national flag, anthem, currency, passport, phone cards, stamps, orthography, and even a certification of citizenship. The Garden of Morning Calm is a 300,000-meter garden that attracts an array of frequent families, friends, couples and photographers who come to explore the beautifully sculpted garden flowers, trees and pathways of this stunning garden paradise. If you choose the rail bike option, you will see an old train track in the beautiful countryside that has been converted into a serene rail bike track. With this option, visit the rail bike station in the morning before you visit Nami Island and The Garden of Morning Calm. You will have 2-3 hours at each venue and will be dropped off at Dongdaemun History & Culture Park Station, Myeongdong Station, or Hongik University Station. On the non-rail bike option, you will be dropped off between 5:30 PM and 6:00 PM, and on the rail bike option you will return between 7:00 PM and 8:00 PM.

Great day with guide Rachel. She was full of information and went out of her way to do all she could for us to make the day unforgettable. The rail bikes were a great start to the day and the tunnels fabulously entertaining Nami island was absolutely breathtaking. 100% recommend anyone visiting South Korea to take a visit! The gardens at the end of the day were so calm and tranquil an amazing end to the day!

I really enjoyed this tour, though it was a bit hard as someone by themselves, especially as I was the only one traveling solo. The transportation was good and comfortable (and I'm a tall guy), and there was enough time and freedom to see the sights. I would recommend the rail bike to couples and groups, not to solo travelers.

This tour is certainly worth the money spent and time rendered for experience. Time allocated for the 3 places of attractions are sufficient. Rail Bike is interesting with scenic views and music along the way. Nami Island was a lovely island, ideal even for kids. The place has many restaurants. We had a nice Korean meal there. Garden of Morning Calm has many beautiful flowers and trees.
