Long ride but worth it
Nov 2019 • Couples
In order to visit all the beautiful and historical cities outside of Seoul, we knew we need to join a bus tour and after reviewing all the tours out there, we booked K-Shuttle. Our group was a fun and punctual group of people, so with all the long ride going to one city to another, it wasn’t that bad. All the places we go to were places that all the locals will go for their getaway too, so it was nice to see that not everything are made for foreign tourists. Our guide, Cooper, was very helpful and informative, he brought his binder that filled with printed pictures of what is necessary for us to know about his lovely country, South Korea and also the places that we will visit. I would recommend K-Shuttle for sure to my friends back home.

Great trip
Oct 2019 • Family
We have had a great tour through Korea and Cooper gave us lots of useful information along the way. We are vegetarians and it can be difficult to find food in Korea, but Cooper personally either took us to an appropriate restaurant or ordered for us. The trip is quite fast paced so be prepared for a lot of walking quickly!! All of the hotels were of good quality, but some are a little out of the way, so stock up on snacks when you can. Again can't say enough how great Cooper was as a tour guide and how much we enjoyed the trip.

Amazing tour, would definitely go back in the future
We booked this tour spontaneously and glad we did so!

First three days we were with another couple that booked for three days so we had a very small group and then two days of private tour.

The hotels were clean and comfy. The van was very comfy.

We got to taste a good variety of both urban and natural sceneries; Amazingly beautiful monuments and museums as well as relaxing explorations by foot of city streets and breathtaking natural reserves, vilages and temples. We also got to taste new foods and different versions of Korean dishes, unique to each area we visited.

Our guide, Cooper, was wonderful. Very kind and attentive, highly organized, had accurate timing, knowledgeable about everywhere we went, humerous and was a great conversation.

I wish we had more time in each place.

This tour along with an independent week we had in Seoul before it, made us want to go back to South Korea in the future and explore it more.

We wholeheartedly recommend this tour and of course our great guide.
