  • Just booked this tour for November for my family of 4, can someone let me know if I can add more days. i want to stay longer in Seoul and maybe do 2 days in Busan. - Kathleen Moore

  • Just came back from my trip and I loved my vacation and the tour guides were great in each country. I was recommended by a co worker who used them for her honeymoon and I’m sure I’ll used them again for my next year’s vacation. I love everything Asian so I’m already planning next year vacation in Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore with this same company. – Iveth R. - Iveth R

  • I have just returned from my tour of Japan & South Korea on 3/26/17. I just wanted to pass along that it was superb. The guides were excellent, it was fantastically organised. Congratulations to your company. I have many friends now interested in going and myself again. Again thank you it was fantastic. - Lyn Crombie
