    We greatly appreciated and liked our guide, "J Mo." He was knowledgeable, funny, accommodating, sensitive to our needs, and contributed significantly to how much we came to enjoy and become interested in learning more about Seoul and South Korea. He took photos for us, and gave us cultural, economic, political, and historical perspectives that were fascinating. We felt as though we had been able to learn a bit of the "behind the scenes" stories of Seoul and South Korea. Strongly encourage people to take this trip, especially to see the beautiful country outside of the city and to see attractions that are representative of Korean interests and sensitivities.

    In general, the actual visits to Mt. Seorak and Nami Island were great ~ however it all felt a little bit rushed. An extra hour at Mt. Seorak would have been good, same for Nami Island. Doing both in the same day is a big day ~ this trip was probably designed for people who want to smash it all in and be done. Our driver picked us up from our hotel but didn't drop us off in front of it citing that traffic was bad in our side of town – womp. Also, the van we drove in was packed in with 9 people total. I get tour operating costs and such but in a mini van, it should be maxed at 6/7 if you want your guest to be comfortable not 9 (not including driver). All said – the actual places of the visit were great.

    Visited Mount Seorak and Nami Island on the 14 Jan. This is a great tour as Mount Seorak and the surrounding park are beautiful. As the weather is good, we managed to take the cable car ride up and explored the magnificent view it offers. After lunch we proceed to Nami Island, the famous Korean drama – Winter Sonata shooting place. This island is beautiful at every spot. Love the rolls of tall, completely vertical trees. Highly recommend this tour package as we can go to both beautiful places. Our Guide Mr. Jerry is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, his explanations are easy to understand.
