Review

  1. Kathleen Weeks|2017-11-30

    We had so much fun!! We just got back from the K-Shuttle tour South Korea. Our guide treated us like her family and made sure that all of our needs were met. The food was incredible and we experienced it all. At each destination we were given the opportunity to eat the food that was popular in that area. Plan on $10-15 a meal for food. You could definitely go with less a meal but if you really want to experience the true cultural experience I would allow for at least this much in your budget. I would be happy to help anyone with questions.

    My husband and I joined the K-Shuttle in the second week of November 2013. We really enjoyed it. Our guide, Mr. Kim, asked us to write some feed-up on your website. That is something I have not done yet, because I didn’t know were exactly to write it down. Can you tell where to put it? But I did write a 400 words (and photos) article for Discovery, the bi-monthly magazine of SIWA, the Seoul International Women’s Association, with some 300 members. Some of the members have shown a keen interest in joining a similar tour, so they might get in touch with you.
