"I just want to say thank you.  We had a wonderful time on our trip around Eastern Korea.  The accommodation, food, sights we saw, history explained and the whole travel experience was fabulous.  We would never have seen or done so much if we planned it ourselves.  The tour guide was wonderful, he explained so much and was always open to anything we needed from him.  I really feel that the trip gave us a wonderful insight into South Korea and its people."
