    Dear ChillOutanywhere, Thank you very much for your comment, and we feel so great that you had wonderful time with your group. We feel sorry that you couldn't join Eastern Korea due to high season. However, Western Korea is also worth to do as much as Eastern part tour. We hope you can join Eastern tour someday near future if you ever visit Korea again. Have a great day ahead!
