    This was a very nice trip. But it would have been nice to have a fair warning that there was going to be a fair bit of uphill climbing through the mountain before hand.
    The reststop duration was a bit smaller than the other trips.
    The monastery in the fortress was very pretty and the UNESCO heritage site was beautiful too!

    • KoreaTravelEasy    

      Thanks for your valuable feedback. we will inform it next time 🙂

    Overall the trip was great! The UNESCO heritage sites were beautiful and the lunch was delicious. The weather wasn’t terrible either. We were told that the path to the Temple wasn’t very hard but we were not warned that the path back would be completely uphill with a lot of stairs. It would have been nice to receive a warning instead of “it’s only a little uphill.” Other than that, everything was fine.

      Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your experience. I am happy to hear that you enjoy the tour!

      I informed our supplier about the issue that you had during the tour and asked them to inform the right information before uphill. I do apologize on behalf of our supplier, please kindly understand.
