Great day
May 2019 • Family
The sites seen are beautiful, definitely worth a day from Busan. Our driver and guide was Jade Kim. He was fun, kind and informative. His English is fine, I would recommend him highly.

Gyeongju offers a unique Korean historical and cultural experience!
Apr 2018
After all, Gyeongju was the capital of the Silla Kingdom (57 BC – AD 935), the longest dynastic period in the history of Korea. I can’t say enough about our fabulous tour guide and local expert Jade Kim. He orchestrated an enjoyable, informative and first rate walking tour of everything in Gyeongju that we wanted to see. Jade picked up our gang of 3 adults at hotel Hwangnamguan Hanok Village at 9:30 am, shuttled us to each historical site in the comfort of a spacious SUV, and then transported us to the Paradise Hotel in Busan by 6:00 pm.
The tour was a full day of activity, including Cheomseongdae Royal Observatory, Daereungwon Tomb Complex (Cheonmachong), Donggung Palace and Wolji Pond in Gyeongju (Anapji), Bulguksa Temple, Seokguram Grotto and Gyeongju National Museum. Although I cannot detail each of these fantastic sites in this review, we experienced it all, and at a leisurely, fun pace, including a great authentic Korean lunch. This was all possible because our tour guide Jade Kim was well organized, thorough, and has the ability to distill Korean history and culture into a great program!

Highly recommended as part of any serious tour of Korea!

Great day outside the big city!
Oct 2017 • Friends
What a great tour this was! Our guide, Jade, answered all our questions and shared a lot of the ancient history of Korea. He was able to give us a guided tour through the museum and explain what we were seeing. Very knowledgeable on history. He pointed out the highlights not to miss!
Good English. Safe driver.
Bring a jacket for visiting the grotto. It was windy and cold up there.
Jade took us to a traditional Korean restaurant. It was wonderful! Not the same stuff we've been eating in other restaurants. We really enjoyed it!
When we returned to the city he took us to a place that overlooked the city from all directions! It was so beautiful to see the bridges lit up and all the city lights!!! Such a treat!
