Transportation (South Korea)

We use a variety of transportation to operate your itinerary at the best pace and to give you an authentic travel experience so you are not always ‘removed’ from the locals.


Buses with air conditioning are used on our group tours for city sightseeing, short excursions to the countryside and longer transfers where necessary. Roads in South Korea are well maintained and are comparatively smooth compared with the rest of Asia. We do not guarantee toilets on all coaches, however adequate toilet stops will be provided.

Seatbelts - It is recommended that where seat belts are available in any destination, customers must use them and remain seated at all times whilst the vehicle is moving.

Please keep in mind that major events or holidays and new construction projects create traffic that can interfere with your tour and meal times. Your National Escort/Local Guides will do their utmost to avoid possible delays, changes or in rare cases, cancellations to sections of your itinerary.

High-speed trains

Second class reserved seats are booked for our groups on high-speed trains; there will be toilet facilities on board. Due to the limited space on the trains, a separate luggage transfer service will be arranged for all suitcases. The trains are clean, comfortable and punctual.

Keeping valuables safe on the train - Carry all valuables with you at all times.

Private vehicles

Transfers may be arranged by private, air-conditioned vehicle, if you are not arriving at the same or similar time as other group members. Your driver will have a sign board but may speak little-to-no English.

Refer to your final itinerary for more specific information on transfer services.


You may find that Google maps is not as useful in South Korea as it is at home. We recommend using Naver Map instead, which can be downloaded via the app store on your smartphone.
