Korea K-shuttle

This item appears on page 52 of the November 2013 issue.

For travelers to Korea, K-Shuttle (phone, in the US, 212/643-2005 or, in Korea, 1899 2508) offers hop-on/hop-off itineraries on routes that loop around 14 cities, starting in Seoul. Three routes are available: the southeast (three nights), the southwest (three nights) and the entire course (four nights). On board each is an English-speaking guide who offers a tour at each stop.

Covering the entire course and including accommodations, breakfasts, guide and some entry fees, a 5-day, 4-night package costs $549. Bus only, the route costs $76. Participants on a bus-only trip may stop at any city and continue on the next day’s shuttle.
