Tour itinerary was well planned, and our guide, Michelle was lovely. She was well informed of the attractions and covered enough detail for each stop. The pace was good too, even with quite a bit of walking around. Our favourite was definitely the colourful Gamcheon Culture Village, or the Korean Santorini equivalent as the locals call it.
However, after completing the tour, we felt it was slightly pricey for the places covered as they were relatively touristy. On hindsight, if I had found more information in English to take us around Busan, I probably wouldn't have needed to go with this!

Michelle was our driver and guide for this tour. She was absolutely delightful! So sweet and full of positive energy! The Gamcheon Culture Village is a MUST! It had snowed two days prior to our trip in Busan and we got to see the snow falling off the roofs of the Beomeosa Temple where there were services in process. We went to the top of the Busan Tower which afforded many wonderful view of Busan which is a thriving, clean city. We had a large lunch at a little cafe in the town. Michelle did a GREAT job. We highly recommend both the tour and our guide.

Our group of four had only one full day to spend in Busan and booked a private guide and car for a day-long tour on November 17, 2017. Jade Kim was our English-speaking guide and driver. He understood we had only the one day, and he thoughtfully constructed a tour that gave us the best views and highlights of the city. Rather than take us to Busan Tower for a limited view of the city, he drove us up the mountain to Hwangnyeongsan Observatory that fulfilled his promise of a view that would be 800 better. It was spectacular! Photos attached A true bird-eye view of the impressive cityscape. Jade was also knowledgeable in our visits to Beomeosa Temple, the fish market, Gamcheon Culture Village and shopping areas. He drove skillfully through the confusing streets of Busan, and arranged a delicious and satisfying Korean lunch at a family-run restaurant. Although our time in Busan was brief, Jade was able to give us a sense of the city and memorable experiences. We highly recommend the tour and our guide.

Great Customer Service and Travel Experience! We highly recommend this tour with the amazing service, hospitality, knowledge info and experience we had with our tour guide - Mr. Jade Kim. We booked this tour on the height of the Golden Week holiday in Korea. There were high number of tourists both local and foreign as well as heavy traffic around the area where holiday makers converge as well as the main highway. Our tour guide Jade did his best to make sure that we don't get tired and made us feel comfortable. He offered us alternatives and readily agrees to our suggestions so we can make the most of time. I would highly recommend this tour and kudos to Jade Kim for your great service because of this tour we learned more about the culture, beauty and history of Busan. I will be back again :

Really fun tour, overall! The only sort of downside was the cultural village was kind of just a tourist trap but it was made up for by our wonderful guide who got us on quickly to the other stuff. We loved the fish market and just walking around through the street markets. Also -- huge shout out to fantastic lunch recommendations from our guide as well.

PLUSES
- Great guide. Really fun, personable guy who we enjoyed spending the day with.
- We got an extra stop that wasn't on the agenda to visit the statue of the comfort woman outside the Japanese consulate. I got the sense that this happens fairly often time permitting, but it was a nice surprise none-the-less!
- Fantastic lunch! Owe the recommendation to our guide for introducing it to us I believe buldak was the name of the dish.
- The fish market was super cool
- Hotel pickup/dropoff was really nice

NEGATIVES
- Cultural village was kind of a letdown as it was mostly just ice cream shops and taking pictures in front of wall paintings. Maybe it shouldn't be played up as much in the tour descriptions.

Wonderful way to see so many sites around Busan. My guide, Jade, was so nice and professional. He was very knowledgeable about Busan and its history. If you are visiting Busan, you should definitely book this experience!

Our Busan city tour was such an amazing experience, we never thought we would love Busan rather than Seoul, probably because of Mr. Cooper, our English tourist guide, who did a really great job through out the day, he was well versed with all the locations, informative and trusted, find no words to describe how unique was this experience for us, furthermore, sufficient free time to do shopping, definitely will recommend this, 6 STARS Thankyou Mr. CooperBusan, we will back again soon xxx Grace from Chester UK

This is a great tour! Our tour guide spoke English fluently. She was a fun and friendly young lady, obviously proud of Busan, and very informative. It was lightly raining in the morning when we visited the temple, but our guide furnished an umbrella and the rain did not stop us from enjoying the bright colored lanterns and the quiet calm. Besides the temple, we visited the village, which was full of bright colors and local artwork, and had great craft shops, friendly people, and an interesting history that the guide explained to us. We also saw a sightseeing tower, ate an authentic Korean lunch, and visited the fish market during our tour. Our guide was flexible in allowing us to spend more time in the village, which we really enjoyed. We would highly recommend this tour and the guide we had. She gave us an American name but we unfortunately lost it. But we will always remember her and how she made Busan such a memorable experience for us.
