Best Busan Tour Ever!
Best Busan Tour in the city! Steve was the perfect guide and conversation buddy! He was instrumental in giving us the full tour of Busan and Gyeongju the historical and fascinating attention it deserves. if you want a tour of either city, this is the company and he is the man to get! Can’t wait to see the city again with Busan Tourism Center!

A culture site
Feb 2019
I stopped over in Gyeongiu mainly because it is on my way to Busan for a conference. Because it is not crowded Gyeongiu is more authentic location to experience South Korea. If you are interested in ancient culture (Korean, Japanese and Chinese) There are a lot of places to visit. However going by public transit (city bus) takes a long time. On a weekend even taxies are not that easy to find. Another thing you have to know is that the street signs are in Korean only. Their maps are either in Korean or English, but not bi-lingual. That makes the maps pretty useless. In a city like Gyeongjiu most people, including taxi drivers, do not speak English. You cannot get directions with maps in hand. In Busan I had to ask the (international) hotel people to write down English names on a Korean map so I can show the taxie driver where to go.

Fantastic Tour
The tour includes everything from cave shrines through to buddhist temples and subterranean burial sites. Our guide was wonderful, lunch was good and the all-round service was first class. Highly recommended.

Amazing guide
Apr 2019 • Couples
Booked for a group tour and ended up being alone with my wife. Beth, the tour guide, was amazing. She was very knowledgeable with regarda to the history but was also kind at sharing information on modern customs and information. Her English was also up to par. The tour itself was also very interesting and worth every penny. We learned a lot about the Korean history.

Super and very accommodative too
My wife and I booked this tour with Busan Tourism Center and we were lucky to get Beth as our guide.

My wife had been wanting to visit the Gyeongju area for a long time, and this tour covers some cool and interesting sites (I esp. liked the grotto), so she was very happy with the tour, and this tour was one of the highlights of our stay in Korea.

We got a slightly late start in the morning, because Beth got stuck in heavy morning traffic due to encountering a traffic accident, but we were able to get to and see all of the sites.

The lunch was at a Korean 'hansik' buffet restaurant, and there was a HUGE variety of Korean foods! My wife is Korean and she liked it, so it was good!!

We are an "older couple" and also my wife had injured her knee (before we got to Busan) so we were kind of slow, so we were worried about the pace of the tour (and we knew that there was a lot of walking), but Beth (and I think/hope the other family that was on the small group tour with us) was super patient, and we never felt rushed during the whole tour.

Beth also did a wonderful job narrating during the whole tour.

Highly recommended!!!

Great intro to Shilla history
We booked a tour via TripAdvisor. Originally meant to be a shared tour, but as it was off peak we ended up having a great day out in a private tour with just our family. Our tour guide, Steve, was fantastic. He let us go at our own pace, was super friendly and very knowledgeable. He also knew where the best photo ops were and made the day fun and engaging. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel in Gyeongju in a really comfortable mini van. The whole booking process was really easy as well and they were really good about confirming our tour times. The company has very good English and were super responsive on email.

Oct 2018 • Family
We organized a full day tour of Gyeongju UNESCO sites with Busan Tourism and were lucky to have Beth as our guide. We felt she showed us the best of Gyeongju, was prompt and gave us such insight into Korea as well. She was great with my son who is learning Korean. Highlights were the Bulguk Temple and Seokguram Grotto which is absolutely stunning. It was a great day out and well worth organizing if you are in Busan or Gyeongju.

Oct 2018 • Couples
Second trip to Busan this year with the wife, and we decided to do our tour a second time with Steve of BTC (not to be confused with the lesser known k-pop band, BTS). He did not disappoint, and Gyeongju is a great day out from the city. A small and easy paced tour, there are plenty of interesting things to see and learn. Steve managed the time well again, arriving and leaving each site just before the descending hordes, and the vehicle and drive was very safe & comfortable. Highly recommended.

Highly recommend- Steve was a fantastic guide!
I could not be happier with the Gyeongju tour. Steve was our guide, and he was hilarious, attentive, and incredibly knowledgeable. He answered all of our questions and knew to switch up the order of the tour to avoid the weekend crowds. I normally try to do things myself, but this tour covered everything I wanted to see and did so much more quickly (and better) than I would have been able to do on my own. Overall, it was a fantastic day and I highly recommend this tour.
