    Interesting experience. The guide was very helpful throughout the trip. Pickup area at myeongdong was very convenient for tourists like us. We managed to do all the activities. Next time I will join the mud festival.

    It was amazing, the tour guide was great and it was a simple trip to get there, although quite a long journey. Lunch was great and we spent a lot of time doing the sky bike and zip trek. Overall a very enjoyable experience!

    Extremely worth every cent paid. Guide for the day is Tiger and he went out of his way to pick us up from our accommodation though it wasn’t required. We did not manage to do the mud picking due to the sea conditions which was a disappointment. We did fishing instead and to be frank wasn’t such a fun experience. We next proceeded to skybike and my family enjoyed it. We had our hands on experience doing seaweed making and the key highlight was definitely gaehwa art park where the kid can have their hands on experience feeding deer goats piglets rabbits. It is a beautiful park with loads of greeneries, beautiful flowers and fresh air. One of the better day trips made and well worth the dollars paid.

      Hi Rachel! Thank you for sharing your honest opinion on using our service. We are glad that you enjoyed your experience in Boryeong. Boryeong is such a nice place to visit with a group of friends and family. It’s different from Seoul city area, you get to experience the real local Korean countryside life! Yet, we are sorry that you were not able to enjoy the mudflat activity as we care about our customer’s safety most of all, due to the sea condition it can be canceled which is unfortunate but it’s still very important to be safe. Still, we hope you enjoyed many other activities and places that you tried and visited in Boryeong 🙂 Thanks, Rachel <3

This product is over for this season, please look forward to next year!
