BTW, I joined the Gyeongju one day tour by VIATOR Tours from Busan and it was an awesome tour. They pick up from your hotel and provided water and lunch was also included. On top of these, they also bring you to pick and try on hanbok of our choice (color and style) and asked us to walk around the... More

We booked one day in advance. Everything seemed fine. The day of the visit we got up very early to take the train from Seoul to the south, the city of Gyeongju. We took the KTX, the Korean TGV. The evening before however the city of Gyeongju was shaken by an earthquake (5.3 on the Richter scale). So some tourists... More

If you want to go to Gyeong Ju, I suggest you to take a trip from Busan (it took about 1hr 20 min by train from Heundae Station,... More

Just to set your expectation. If you're willing to pay W33,000 for a bus to drive you around tourist attractions in Gyoengju, this tour will meet your expectation. If you expect the tour guide to explain the stories of the attractions a little bit, you'll be disappointed like us. She could only communicate in English when she needed to collect... More

Easy way to see a view sights at night. The Donggung Wolji-Anapji Pond was lovely but rest of tour very average. Guide spent a lot of time talking to the group (only in Korean) so I had to spend a lot of time waiting around. tour was just over 2hours long as the first 30 minutes was spent picking up... More
