"The tour with Grace was great. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. Our next pick up by Nam to go to Gyeongju and tour provided a great time as well. She explained things very well and again stopped at a place we saw while driving around not on the original itinerary. She also came into our hotel to make sure check in went smoothly and sorted out what we should do to get to the train station when leaving. Very friendly and professional. GetAbout Asia did a terrific job in arranging things for us as usual and we would recommend them to anyone. " — Ms Karabidian, Melbourne, June 2019

"We enjoyed Seoul! Thank you and the team in Korea. The hotel we had was very central and we have been upgraded to an executive room without the perks but a view of the tower. Very good value for money. The tours have been really good and small groups - 6 for the Palace yesterday and 10 for the DMZ tunnel. " — Mr and Mrs Cumming, Sydney, November 2018

"The trip was magnificent in Korea. All of the guides were amazing from the personal ones to the group ones… In South Korea going to see the Nanta Theatre Show was a treat. It is dance, rhythmic, acrobatic, magical and comedic. We went to the Korean War Memorial and that is sobering. It is very well done. They have from Goryeo times way back up to the Korean War. It was most impressive. We did miss on seeing some things in Korea due to them being closed unexpectedly or our understanding on how close/far things were was a bit off but that just means we can see them when we go back and it all adds to the experience. South Korea had its own 'buzz'. We definitely want to explore more. " — Michelle and Sandra, Melbourne, August 2018

"I had wonderful trip! The pace of tour was good and the tour guide took / recommended us few restaurants through out the trip, they were cheap and great taste. JeJu Island was my favourite place.
