This was my first trip ever to South Korea and I was not disappointed.

While much of our tour focused on history (back to the 6th and 7th centuries), we also got to see a lot of the new Korea.

Because of the devastation caused during the Korean War, much of the construction within the country has been within the last 65 or so years.

The airport in Seoul has to be one of the most modern in the world.

The trip is definitely "On The Go," and the ability to walk 5km in a day is not an understatement.

Fortunately, my three travel companions and I were apparently in good enough shape to handle the extensive walking required.

This is definitely a 4 out of walking stick figure active tour.

As an aside, the tour of the cave in the DMZ was demanding, especially for anyone over about 5 feet 7 inches.

The ceilings are low and there is a long walk down a steep incline to get into the cave and to get back out.

We wore plastic helmets, which was good since I banged my head several times on the way down and back (I'm 6 feet 3 inches tall).

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and my three other traveling companions were good and equally able to keep up.

Post script: My brother had been stationed in Korea in the US Army over 40 years ago so that along with the current interest in North and South Korea along with the DMZ were of particular interest to me personally.

I had a thoroughly good time in South Korea.

The hotels were excellent and the itinerary was perfect for the relatively brief 7 days.

There was a good balance between being guided and being left to ones own devices.

My guide was very friendly and accommodating and took great care in ensuring I was satisfied with the tour.

So on the whole, I was extremely satisfied with my holiday.

Many thanks! less....
