South Korea is a country of contrasts. There are busy 21st century cities with modern skyscrapers and hi-tech factories supplying the world with the latest electronic goods, but also ancient temples, palaces, fortresses and burial mounds to discover. Similarly the concrete and glass of the cities are twinned with lush national parks, remote sandy beaches, high mountains, hot springs and tiny islands. The bustle of the country all then stops at the de-militarised zone and heavily guarded no-mans land which separates the country from North Korea.
All these contrasts make South Korea a really exciting country to visit and explore. Added to what you'll see, are a set of very friendly people and some world famous cuisine to taste, including some dishes you may find challenging with plenty of pickling and chillie heat going on.
The climate is mainly welcoming too, with four seasons through the year. The rainy season months of July and August are the hottest, with the colest months being December to February. The most popular time to visit are the spring and autumn months where the weather is generally mild and dry. Occasional typhoons can bring high winds and floods between June and September.

I thought it was very good we didn't have to worry about anything everything was in order and kept with the schedule as planned, unless we wanted to deviated from it to do somethingelse. The trip really a trip of a life time.
There was a time many years ago that I wanted to travel to Egypt and didn't because of the cost. This trip was, to me, very affordable. I think everyone should experience this trip. The tour guide was alos excellent, Sherif Mohammad.
Everything about the trip was thought through, fine-tuned , and marvelous. From Ant Horribin helping us arrange the trip, to rep Waled Ali, and our guide Big Mo, we could not have asked for a better team. Our sincere thanks to them.
I liked the fact we were met at the airport and helped thru customs and getting a visa and then upon leaving taken to where we needed to go. Its always tough to figure out where everything is in a foreign airport when you do not travel much
Everything was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable and liked that we were interested in what he was telling us. We were lucky to be in a group with like minded people who also wanted to stay in places longer of which our guide accommodated. Only negative thing was the sitting train. Best to just take the flying option. Train was not bad but has no services, no alcohol, and breakfast was all carbs and an egg. Egypt really seems to like their breads and pastries....
When a single women in her 50's, traveling from the US to Egypt, stumbles across a website offering a tour, and then they make her feel totaling comfortable about every step of the process, you know you've hit a homerun!
Anthony has been amazing throughout my planning of my tour. He has been very quick in replying to my emails and always answering with everything I wanted to know.
I look forward to hopefully planning my next trip through him next year!
