Wake up to a delightful breakfast spread at your hotel before embarking on an exciting journey from Jeju to Busan.

After indulging in a satisfying breakfast at your hotel, embark on a thrilling full-day exploration of Busan's iconic landmarks.

Follow the scenic Dalmaji-gil Road to Yonggungsa Temple, nestled amidst breathtaking views of the ocean and lush forests, a true gem among Busan's eight scenic sites.

With a history dating back to 57 BC, when Julius Caesar was shaping Europe, Gyeongju flourished as the capital of the Shilla Dynasty for a millennium. Immerse yourself in its rich heritage as you explore UNESCO-designated sites like the Bulguksa Temple and Seokguram Grotto, marveling at their intricate stone craftsmanship and spiritual significance.

Next, journey to Andong's Hahoe Village, a living testament to Joseon Dynasty architecture and community structure. Unlike artificially recreated sites, Hahoe is home to residents, gaining global recognition after a visit by Queen Elizabeth II of Britain.

Explore the historic Sinheungsa Temple, founded by the revered monk Jajangyulsa in the 6th century, before ascending to Gwongeumseong, an ancient castle ruin perched atop the steep slopes of Dol Mountain. As an optional tour, experience the Gwongeumseong Cable Car for panoramic views of the park (USD20pp).

The Bamba Team really made my journey one of the most memorable experiences of my life! Still so nice and supportive! They handled everything and responded to each question within a few minutes. I wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone. Especially if you want to do a lot of activities and travel to a lot of different places without feeling rushed. They've also helped me with specific issues that weren't covered by the tour, as well as answering general questions. Thank you so much for making my journey so enjoyable!

The tour was fantastic; I was able to visit some of Japan's most beautiful locations, and the accommodations were excellent, with convenient access to the city's best attractions.

I only have good words about our trip to Kenya. The entire experience was totally magical and I struggle to say how fantastic it was. We were fortunate enough to have a brilliant vehicle for ourselves, but we had great luck with David for our guide too. He was very knowledgeable, courteous and nice. Thank you for helping to create this fantastic safari experience. I Highly recommend this company.

Bamba Experience has been the best tour guide I've ever had. Every tour has been a thrilling experience. There are so many things to choose from. Bamba has been extremely helpful in providing us with all of the necessary information for our departures and activities! Bamba has made this a simple and enjoyable experience. I'll certainly tell my friends and family about it! Thank you very much, Bamba!!

Feb 20 2020

We organized a trip through Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia on the hop-on, hop-off bus. It made the trip so much simpler for us as first-time travelers because we just had to send an email to arrange the bus, which avoided the hassle of looking for the best price and so on! We also had a number of tours included, they were all amazing and saved us the trouble of trying to find the best offers on our own; it also meant we got to see a lot of stuff we wouldn't have seen otherwise. Overall, it was a fantastic experience that I will strongly suggest and use again!

Our Bamba tour of Vietnam was fantastic. We had a lot of new experiences and all of the help we needed to make this a stress-free vacation. The well-organized accomodation and transportation were excellent. We will certainly use Bamba in the future.

Jun 25 2019

I had booked our Uyuni Salt Flats & Desert Adventure 3D/2N (Uyuni to Atacama) tour via an Australian travel agency, but they had made an error and refused to assist us or take responsibility. This was very difficult for us because we wanted to have a stress-free honeymoon. I contacted Bamba and I asked if we could talk on the phone so they made the improvements to our tour reservation that our travel agent declined to make. The quality of service was exceptional and they generously offered to us a complimentary gift because it was our honeymoon. I can't say enough good things about Bamba.
