Best Way to Explore Gyeongju
Jun 2021 • Family
This was totally worth it for us. Our family loves exploring and learning about other cultures, religions and history of places and this tour had all of those elements. Ms. Mimi shared so much information with us but at the same time she made the entire experience so interesting and fun. She paid attention to our interests and allowed us to spend more time at the temple and the museum because she saw how interested we were to be immersed in the experience and history of it. She was also extremely patient with my inquisitive 7 year old who had so many questions about things he saw. The tour was private so we didn't feel rushed and it was also flexible to accommodate what we wanted to see and visit.

And did I mention that our guide was such an amazing photographer! She documented our trip so beautifully and that meant so much to us!

The tour also included a hearty taste of Korean food which Ms. Mimi, our guide also selected for us after due consideration of our (especially my son's) preferences.

Ms Mimi was such a wonderful and genuine person and by the end of the tour we felt we've made a friend in this part of Korea! We are so happy we decided to book this! We wouldn't have experienced and appreciated Gyeongju at this level if we didn't! Will definitely recommend to others!

Great visit of Gyeongju and Shilla History
Apr 2021 • Couples
It was a great tour, Gyeongju was a great city to visit.
Our tour guide Mimi, was amazing from the moment she picked us from our hotel to every step of the visit and really tried to make the best trip possible for us. She spoke very well English and was very knowledgeable.
Highly recommend if you wish to fully understand the Shilla period.

WONDERFUL DAY IN GYEONGJU 💗
Busan City Tours came as a wonderful blessing to us! My mother and I arrived in Busan without an agenda, and did not know what to expect. We just came to have relax, see some sights, and eat good Korean food. The anxiety and frustration from it having no plans bothered me so much until…

After walking around Haeundae Beach area we decided we did not want to do the city bus tour where we would hop on & off and navigate around on by ourselves. We picked up a Busan City Tours pamphlet & I send a message to their WhatsApp and received a very quick reply within minutes to confirm the scheduled tour dates and times for pickup at our hotel.

Mr. Harry picked us up in the lobby and he was on time, and super nice to us. It felt like my mother was a queen and I’m the princess, we got picked up in a really beautiful Mercedes (the advantage of being on a private tour). I really enjoyed the Barley tea he provided us with. The drive to Gyeongju from Busan was very pleasant, and I enjoyed conversing with Mr. Harry so much on the way.

Every location on the Gyeongju tour was so beautiful. It was nice to see a glimpse of the more traditional side that I have been longing for, and it was so peaceful to be amongst green and serene atmospheres. I truly enjoyed learning about Gyeongju’s history, architecture, and cultural preservation from Harry, who was very informative.

We had lunch at a restaurant that felt very homely, I loved sitting on the wooden floor and connecting over some good food. I notified Me. Harry that I do not eat meat, and he ordered the most amazing mackerel for my mother and I to try. It was so amazing! And there were a lot of vegetarian friendly items on the table, food definitely was not a problem.

We were able to walk around and see so many beautiful things at this Gyeongju trip, and we were a bit sleepy in the car after our lunch (car rides always make me sleepy). We requested to go home early to get some rest, and since we are on a private tour we were able to just head back to the hotel with ease. There was really nothing for us to worry about with Busan City Tours. Everything (transportation, sightseeing attractions, food, communication) was organized and all we had to do was enjoy the tour.

The most beautiful thing about this tour was experiencing it with my mother, whose birthday is in a few days & it felt very special to be on this tour with her. Busan City Tours was a wonderful option! This tour was meant for us, a blessing indeed. The thing I love the most is that there is so much hospitality from Busan City Tours, you can really feel their love and respect for a eonni (older sister) like my mother. Anyone who is nice and kind to my mother will always win my love and respect equally. Thank you so much Busan City Tours, thank you so much brother Harry!

Absolutely lovely
This tour made our stay at Gyeongju so much more wonderful. There are so many memories to cherish now and on top of that I received much information that I can use for my a-levels thesis. I would recommend the guide to anyone who is planning on going to Gyeongju and is looking for a tour (guide).

Awesome Gyeongju trip!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sep 2019 • Friends
The tour was fun and great. My sister and I had a blast looking at all the history of Gyeongju and learning how everything started. The best part of the trip was our tour guide Harry. Harry was funny, knowledgeable and entertaining the whole tour I couldn't have asked for anyone better. I highly recommend this trip and highly recommend that you get Harry as a tour guide. As a matter of fact not only did he assist with buying the tickets to get there but he also picked my sister and I up from the train station. You can't go wrong by booking this trip and if you can try your best to get Mr. Harry he's awesome!!!!

Enjoyable one day heritage tour in Gyeongju
We had a great time on a one-day tour of Gyeongju, but wished we had stayed overnight so we could cover more places over 2 days. Our guide Ms Han was knowledgeable, kind and very well versed in English. We went around in a 7 seater. Some parts of the trip r flexible so you may discuss more on how to customise better. Would certainly recommend the Silla tombs area as well as Seokguram. If we had more time would go to Anapji pond as well, and perhaps good to start off with a visit to the Gyeongju National Museum (not in package) to give a better context.
