Originally our plan was to spend our whole Korean vacation in Seoul. It was indeed a good decision to add a side trip to Busan and Pohang. The train ride itself from Seoul to Busan, and Pohang to Seoul was a nice and relaxing experience. We had a short but fun holiday to these 2 seaside Korean cities because of our very wonderful and experienced guide, "Busan Oppa". We were able to see Busan and Pohang in 2 days, and our tour was managed efficiently, our pace was good, we were not hurrying. The sites, the taste of the food, the comfort of our vehicle, the smooth driving of our driver, the fun time we had with our tour guide made our vacation awesome and memorable.

This was a great tour with a great guide! Everyone can enjoy this tour from seafood lovers to those that aren’t as familiar (like myself). We hand picked all of the food from the market and had a very fresh meal. Busan Oppa is also a great guide! Would recommend to everyone visiting Busan

The tour guide was great! He showed us around the village after pottery making, and the meal we had was also amazing. Highly recommend!

I'm sorry that I couldn't show you more Onggi Village due to the delayed schedule for unexpected reasons. If you visit Busan again next time, we will prepare you to experience more things.

The village is located in Seogu district and built on inclined land. Must take taxi or town bus there. Do not walk from subway or bus station to Gamcheon village as it will be very strenuous. Most of the houses look the same and it’s not worthy to spend hours at this place. A bit over-rated but was a good work out walking through the village.

I don't know who you are and what you are. I would like to ask you to delete the irresponsible review you left without participating in my experience tour. I don't want to see my and my team's efforts disparaged by an irresponsible and outrageous review by indiscreet person. Remove ridiculous review as soon as possible.

It was really an amazing experience! Our tour guide, Mr. Jang, was the absolute best as well! Really friendly, accommodating, and just overall wonderful personality. It was tiring at times because of the heat and hills/steps but it was entirely worth it and Mr. Jang was encouraging the entire way through. Gamcheon Culture Village was truly a sight to behold. I loved all the vibrant colors and beautiful artwork from local artists. I really wished to go on the cable cars at Songdo beach but unfortunately did not have the time. It was completely fine with me though because we were able to make our own lanterns at Gamcheon Culture Village instead(for free!), which they will release at the lantern festival later in the year! Jagalchi fish market was really interesting to see as well! Although I did not participate in the market as a buyer it definitely was a great experience to watch! To be honest, I did not expect to have any pictures taken of me but I’m truly thankful that we did! I will have these pictures as memories for a long time! Overall, I will definitely be coming back to Busan and recommending this tour to my friends and family! 💚
P.S. bring bug repellent because I got bitten by mosquitoes lol

Thank you for participating in my walking tour. I hope my walking trip helped you understand the past and present of Busan. I am sorry for some inconveniences that occurred during the trip. For a safe and comfortable trip for the participants, I always carry medicine, mosquito repellent, ointment, and bandage, but I didn't tell you in advance. Gamcheon Culture Village holds various events and festivals every fall. I hope to see you again in Busan this fall.

Thank you for taking part in my experience activities.Unfortunately, the price of scallops has skyrocketed and I recommended other seafood.Due to the recent strengthened radiation inspection of imported seafood, the supply of some imported seafood is not smooth. But I was happy that you enjoyed the shrimp sashimi that I recommended. In fall, shrimp is in season, and if you eat live shrimp, you can enjoy real taste of shrimp. Thank you again for participating in my program and I hope you have a pleasant and enjoyable time in Busan. 謝謝你參與我的體驗活動。遺憾的是,扇貝的價格飛漲,我推薦了其他海鮮。隨着最近對進口海產品加強放射能檢查,部分進口海產品供求不暢。 但是我很高興你能吃到我推薦的生蝦。 秋天是蝦的季節,吃生蝦,就能品嚐到蝦的美味。 再次感謝您參與我的節目,祝您在釜山度過愉快的時光。

Wow! I don't know where to start! Dorawayo (Paul) was basically the ultimate human being. I really mean ULTIMATE! Firstly on his seafood programme, it was amazing and definitely an eye-opener! We had awesome raw seafood which are a delicacy in South Korea! We met outside of a convenient subway station and he gave a professional tour of the area he lives at. Walked down a very beautiful beach in front of the diamond bridge before going to the wholesalers to purchase our seafood. The seafood was REALLY FRESH and I urge future guests to be adventurous (you will know what I mean). Apart from his experience, he was also an absolute friend. This being my first time to Korea (and solo btw), he brought me to places where only locals will go to and I tried all sorts of Korean food out of the tour!! Really awesome stuff! He also helped me out with my itinerary and gave sound advice on everything and anything. For this, I am immensely grateful. I even stayed at his place for a night as I couldn't get decent accoms last minute. If you are looking for a complete guy in Busan, Dorawayo is the one to go to! I highly recommend going on his tours especially his seafood programme and cooking classes as he is an excellent cook. He gives 200% in what he does and you will feel that it was money well spent. If you have the opportunity, stay with him and chat to discover the best of Busan! Many thanks Dorawayo! I will forever be grateful! My trip wouldn't have been the same without you pal!

Thank you for your participation in my program and I was touched by your wonderful review. It was a great pleasure for me to be able to perform a program with someone who is upbeat, optimistic, perky and well-communicative.Introducing Korean seafood and culture to foreigners through this program is always pleasant and rewarding. I know that you are also operating a great experience activity in Singapore.I wish you all the best and best wishes for your experience activity. Thank you again for participating in my program and hope to see you again.

Suyang did a wonderful job as my tour guide today. I was the only person on the tour, and I felt safe and was treated respectfully by him at all times, which is very important for women who are sightseeing without a companion.

He thoughtfully provided a bottle of water to begin our journey to the first temple, which he told interesting and entertaining anecdotes about. He walked at a gradual pace that I could easily keep up with. The temple grounds were beautiful and the buildings were ornate, and one could see and hear from a respectful distance the morning music and prayers.

Then we went to the flower market which was full of beautiful blooms, and then we visited the golden Buddha statue at the next temple and had a good vegetarian bibimbap meal. He showed me the grounds which has a gorgeous lily pond.

He also gave me lots of good information about finding vegetarian food near my hotel, as that is not always easy to do in Korea.

I would definitely recommend him as a tour guide, and the temples were interesting to visit.

Thank you for participating in my temple tour. It must have been difficult to walk for a long time due to the hot rainy weather, but you have participated positively and actively in my tour all the time. Thank you very much for appreciating my tour. I am glad that my tour can contribute to making your wonderful memories in Korea.

Suyang was really sweet and keen on explaining many things about his country. He took time to give us tips to cook Korean food and about food in the market in general. It was a really nice experience! Thank you !

Thank you for participating in my cooking class. It's been a while since we held a cooking class with people from Switzerland. According to customer requests, we made beef soup, seasoned dried pollack, and seafood pancakes. I was happy that you both liked my recipe. Thank you once again for participating in my cooking class and I hope you have many wonderful memories in Korea.
