$3699 & up—Rare South Korea trip w/flights, train & tours

It's been almost five years since we last featured an itinerary exclusively for South Korea.

Why We Love This Deal

Update (May 24, 1:30 p.m. ET): Prices have fluctuated. All prices and dates below are up to date.

Vibrant cities, serene temples and historic sitessee all sides of South Korea on this nine-night trip. Start in the capital of Seoul before heading south to coastal Busan then make your way to historic Gyeongju before ending your trip in Seoul.

We rarely see trips that focus squarely on South Korea (the last time we featured one was in October 2019). Our research found savings of up to $1500 versus what other tour operators charge, which is nearly half the cost of the trip itself.

Itinerary highlights: 

  • Let a guide show you Seoul's must-see sights including the Blue House, Gyeongbokgung Palace, Jogyesa Temple, and a Ginseng Centre
  • Tour ancient temples, like the eighth-century, UNESCO-protected Bulguksa Temple or the Busan temple perched on the rocky coast
  • Visit the artistic neighbourhood of Gamcheon Culture Village, which has been nicknamed "Korea's Santorini" and "the Machu Picchu of Busan"
  • See the Seokguram Grotto, a UNESCO World Heritage site on the slopes of Mount Toham which overlooks the sea
  • Explore Seoul at your own pace with two days to spend at your leisure
  • Travel on a high-speed train from Seoul to Busan, Busan to Gyeongju, and Gyeongju to Seoul
  • Excursions are done in groups of 14 people at most, guaranteeing an intimate experience 

What's included: roundtrip flights from Canada, intercity trains, transfers during excursions, nine nights' accommodations in 4- and 4.5-star hotels, daily breakfast, excursions per itinerary, guide during excursions and taxes.

Depart from Vancouver for $3699 on select dates from September-November. Additional dates are available from +$100 through July 2025. Departures during cherry blossom season are also available from +$100 in March-April.

Additional departures are available from Calgary, Edmonton, Regina and Victoria from $3899; Saskatoon and Winnipeg from $3999; Toronto and Ottawa from $4099; Montreal from $4799; Quebec City from $4899 and St. John's from $5599.

This tour operator offers additional trips to South Korea including a 12-night version with two nights on Jeju Island; a nine-night trip to east Asia that adds stops in Hong Kong and Japan; and a 10-night vacation that also explores Japan.
