Full description

Meet your friendly coordinator at your preferred meeting point in Seoul and hop onto the comfortable tour bus with other travelers as you head to Gapyeong City. During the ride, be briefed on the details of the tour by your knowledgeable coordinator. 

If you select one of the options including the railbike experience, drive to the railbike station and take a breathtaking ride through the serene countryside along an old train track that has been converted into a railbike track. Continue to The Garden of Morning Calm, a stunning garden that attracts families, friends, couples, and photographers with a variety of festivals held there throughout the year. Try some local food at the restaurants nearby. Next, set off for Nami Island, a beautiful, well-known destination in South Korea. Explore the half-moon-shaped island, which has very attractive landscapes and was used as the filming location for the famous Korean drama, Winter Sonata. Stroll around at your own pace to discover the island. Then, head to Petite France and Italian Village to see the vibrant French village that stands out with its brightly colored buildings. The French village consists of exhibition halls, restaurants, and cafes for you to explore and also many photo-worthy sites that feature many famous Korean dramas and variety shows.

Jennifer, our guide was excellent. The bus was late for almost an hour but she made sure that we will not miss anything, she served us something to drink while waiting for the driver. She’s such an excellent guide, explaining everything and even volunteering to take pictures and super love the places we visited, i think this tour was the highlight of our trip in Korea. Already recommending to our friends planing to visit Korea this spring

Our tour guide Grace lives up to her name! Very approachable and super nice. We are a family of four including a one year old; she went above and beyond with the tour and even helped me with my baby. I am grateful to have met her. Thank you for the experience.

It was more than I expected. The garden of morning calm was spectacular. I expected less from the petite france but it was rather large when including the board walk that lets you see the sunset in the mountains. The guide was so kind and considerate the whole time. He always made sure everyone was happy. At the end of the day he even helped me find a quicker way back to my lodging. Really superb. When there was some traffic coming back into Seoul he was so sweet and apologetic even as the old Korean lady kept bickering at him to take a different route. He was smiling and friendly.
