The tour was cancelled less than 24 hours after booking. It shouldn't have been offered if it was not available. Still waiting for my refund.

Everything was excellent, except that the tour could include more places in Busan. The temple site was the best, but the rest of the tour could show more of the city. As it is, the tour is divided into sections of the city when it could all be seen in one day.

Although I originally booked the Gyeongju tour, I changed to this one since when wasn't enough people for it to go ahead, and I had a great time seeing Busan. Our guide Steve did an amazing job at showing us around and was really friendly and talkative. I was only in Busan for 3 nights and was travelling by myself, so this tour allowed me to see much more of the city than I otherwise would have. The tour included lunch bibimbap at a korean restaurant and Steve took lots of photos for us at all the scenic locations. After the tour he offered to either drop us off at our hotels or at the east side of the city where there's a huge shopping centre and spaland which was really convenient.

This was my first time in Korea with my mother. Our guide Steve is very friendly and is highly knowledgeable about Busan. My mother was a picky eater but she enjoyed the food at the restaurant we were taken to very much. At the end of our trip we ask to be dropped off at Spa land as he recommend it as one of the best in Korea.

Our day tour of Busan, led by Steve with assistance from Jake and Amy, was awesome. Despite it being the coldest day in Busan in nearly a decade, the tour went at our pace. By far, we enjoyed our time spent at Haedong Yonggungsa Temple and the APEC House the most. The UN Memorial Cemetery was also a must-see, especially as Steve ensured we made it there in time to see the flag lowering ceremony. We learned about the history of South Korea's second largest city, as well as recent developments. All three guides spoke fluent English as they attended university in the States and were welcoming and helpful with our two toddler-aged children. Photographs were taken by a tour guide and sent to us a few days after our tour, part of the tour we most appreciated, as we rarely have more than a few photos of our family together on holiday. Our lunch at a Korean bbq restaurant, included in the tour price, was delicious and very, very filling. While Busan can be explored without a tour, based upon what we learned and how we experienced the City, I wouldn't recommend doing it any other way.
