Shopping (South Korea)

In keeping with most people’s interest whilst on holiday, your tour will include a reasonable number of opportunities to shop for local goods and souvenirs but this may vary depending on local conditions.

Whilst shopping can be fun and entertaining, Wendy Wu Tours, our staff, Local Guide/s are not qualified nor permitted to guarantee the quality or value of any goods purchased during your holiday. Unfortunately, we cannot assist in returning or refunding goods once you have left the country where you purchased the goods.

It is recommended that you double check any items purchased before leaving the store (the item and any credit card receipts) and if you are having a large item shipped, make sure you take a photo of your purchase and the contact details of the store. We suggest you familiarise yourself with the Korean Won currency to make sure you get the correct change.

We encourage all passengers to enjoy their local shopping expeditions but to take care and buy wisely. We cannot assist in returning or refunding goods in any circumstances, including
purchases made at shops or factories which you may visit as part of your tour with us.
