Definitely, the best in value South Korea tour.
FOR BIG GROUPS / CORPORATE / THEMED TOURS, please shoot an email to email@example.com or inquire here.
I have been doing group tours, although unadvertised, since 2012. My family, friends, and guests enjoy my South Korea tours because they’re customized, flexible, and they’re logically arranged so that you can make the most of your time.
In this exclusive Jan Is Cooking Seoul Spring Tour, a common itinerary is created but participants have the option not to join one or some of the activities. In case a participant opts out, our team will create a customized itinerary based on what the participant prefers to do.
This tour is not like a packaged tour where you need to follow a strict schedule. Everything in the itinerary is flexible and movable except for the day tour outside Seoul. Depending on the weather, circumstances, or time constraints, some items in the itinerary might not be accomplished.
A member of our team will join the tour if we get at least 15 confirmed bookings. Otherwise, the tour will push through, and a local (Korean) tour operator will meet the guests for the day tour outside Seoul.
In case a member of our team will join the tour, he/she will be your travel companion but note that he/she will be with you also for his/her own rest and relaxation. If the itinerary is too tiring, or the circumstances require him/her to slow down, our team member may opt out of an activity or take it slow. Rest assured though that he/she will make sure that you will be able to completely enjoy the activities lined up for the day.
If there’s a place that you would like to see, or an activity or class that you would like to experience, and it’s not included in our itinerary, let us know so that we can prepare everything for you from booking vouchers, to downloading maps, and writing down exact directions.
