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 have dealt with Anthony Horrobin on a number of occasions and it is like talking to an old friend on the phone. Anthony is super-efficient and will always go the extra mile to create the perfect trip.

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.

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.

Amazing tour. Any issues we had were addressed in a timely fashion and the resolutions were satisfactory. My only complaint is the driver picking us up was late and none of the cell numbers worked when we tried to call and figure out what to do.

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!
