South Korea tours

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. 

TOUR REVIEWS

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
We had a wonderful time and great memories. We felt safe the whole time and would recommend this trip to anyone of any age as long as you can walk a lot. They are with you from arrival to departure and any problems that arose the guides would try their best to solve. They also showed remarkable patience for other people in other groups we saw that were acting like idiots.

My contact with Encounters representative was a pleasure, she answered my questions promptly, provided a quotation and changed it quickly when different flights were preferred. Both by e-mail and phone the response was very timely.

There was a lot of communication from the beginning. The encounters staff was very responsive and the tour guide was great and very accommodating. Encounters was also able to help me with last minute changes to my itinerary while I was on the trip.

Trip booked through Groupon at a Great offer price - Encounters was nothing but professional from the start. I even purchased insurance - extra days and got the best flights from my local airport- Great experience

Excellent from the initial planning to every step along the way on the trip! Worry free in every way! Islam, Hussein and Mahmoud were the greatest! Please check out my review on Trip Advisor! FIve stars from this girl!
Excellent
