South Korea Travel Guides

Very easy to plan and communicate with our travel specialist ( Thrillophilia ) this is our first abroad trip!!! the agent whom I spoke with was very polite, knowledgable, and friendly kept asking me questions after questions about what we actually wanted on the trip. Right from the airport we get picked-up on time and the company representative already waited for us at the arrival areas and we get transfers to the hotel and as well helps us with all the documentation process and checked-in. the pre-booked hotel was good at a good location with courteous staff and delicious morning breakfast. They even there to help us at any time through WhatsApp and call the operators were very supportive and were there to helps us at any time. We really enjoyed the trips to Jeju Island and its attractions were mind-blowing, in Aqua Planet which we witness much marine life and we even covered the beautiful gardens the Spirited Garden & Bonsai Garden and we explored the island like anything. During our leisure day, we had planned our own itineraries as we went sightseeing, spa, shopping for souvenirs, and definitely food tours. It was such an amazing trip thanks alot for everything.
Before I start my review I would like to start with this, the place was truly paradise on earth, I was totally in love with the overall places we covered on this trip... We get a great chance in life that we are getting this chance to travel to such a beautiful place like this... This trip is just for a span of 6-days and really I wanted to stay more longer but no hard feeling I will definitely revisit again in the future and also will highly suggest this trip to everyone... Let me brief a little bit about this trip and the experience I had... Firstly, the booking, payment, and planning of the trip with Thrillophilia was such a great experience. Secondly, the itinerary was fulfilling and satisfying one and we covered all the amazing places mentioned on it. Thirdly, the Arrangement of hotels with breakfast, transport, pick-up, and drop and services were top notch. Fourthly, the team who was assigned to take care of our trip gave us great support 24/7 during the whole tour. The place as I already mentioned above it is a paradise with a calm environment everywhere you visit...Overall this deserved 5-rating.
Hassle-free in term of everything we had on this trip, The service was truly appreciated... we were guided well the entire trip, we get connected with the operator easily through WhatsApp and call and they were very quick in helping us, Every excursion was amazing... High-class accommodations, fun activities, on time picked-up, and dropped-off. Excellent trips to COEX Aquarium, Oedo Island with beautiful garden and national park, Jeju sightseeing, beautiful Aqua Planet, Bonsai garden, and so on came with the package and also out of the package couldn't have asked for anything better. Thanks, alot team for this perfect vacation
I contacted Thrillophilia to plan for South Korea and HongKong. I trust them as all the trip I had from them since now was always a good one...I am glad that the itinerary they shared with me was interesting though and it blew us away... We had a great sightseeing tour in Hong Kong, a full-fun trip to Disneyland, an amazing cable-car-ride and the view was unforgettable, fun ferry-ride, amazing nightlife, full options of foods, and the people there were welcoming...and much more unbelievable experience... all-over the hotels were nice, the transport was good, and the team was super great...Thanks :)
We just did a 7-days trip around South Korea, this trip turns out and it was an unforgettable experience...The team helped us plan the trip and also helped us understand and advice so that we won't miss anything from the place and makes sure that we won't regret it as it was once in a lifetime experience... the transfers were on-time as expected...the hotel we stay gave us luxury experience, getting to see the countryside and witness all its major sites was so wonderful...All by all, It is something I won't forget will book again for the next-destination also recommend...
A trip which you'll get a mixed experience for sure... The place is so romantic, the sceneries were mind-blowing, it was a nice part when we interact with the locals and get to know about their culture, We really enjoyed the nightlife of the place, an awesome traditional market which we purchased souvenirs, Enjoyable excursion all days, an amazing theme park with a fun ride and activities... Overall, Arrangments and services were excellent, the experience we had was unforgettable... Recommend
We had chosen the right destination for our family vacation, the place is a paradise... so beautiful every spot we arrived it catches the eyes of everyone... The visit to Oedo Botanical Islands really taken our breath away the flowerbeds were extremely 'wow'... On this tour we get to learn about their customs and tradition, We explore the markets and the nightlife of the place which was very exciting and interesting... It was a nice place with lots to see and learn... I will definitely visit this place again and next time I will book with a long-duration package... Talking about the service provided by Thrillophilia was really great, the arrangements of hotels, transport, and pick up and drop were superb... The experience was tip-top right from the start of the trip till finish. I highly recommend this to all travelers don't miss this place you'll love it for sure...

It is a great trip, the place is really beautiful which truly worth-seeing, the entire trip was very well-organized and the itinerary they shared with us was very satisfying and the best part was that we get everything per stated in the itinerary. The tour guide was very informative and knowledgable about the place. The hotel, transport, and activities were well-arranged. Amazing time we had there for 9 days which we learn and experience the place like anything.
We get the amazing-service from both, the booking platform and the local operator altogether they put a wonderful trip for us, every detail has been looking out and was well-arranged, online and on-ground communication was great, the staff they were incredibly friendly and helpful...The sightseeing places were breathtaking!! such a beautiful country, I feel we experienced as much as we could in our 7-days tour...lots of special memories had been created and all are captured in the camera to cherished...
The teamwork so hard to make our trip memorable, Every part of the trip was a smooth, stress-free trip as everything was arranged with perfection in term of picked-up, dropped-off, and transportation, the team was really fantastic. the destination and the attractions we covered were very well-selected the place has both man-made and natural beauty. We really enjoyed the guided city tour along with an informative guide who shared interesting stories about the place. The day trips and sightseeing were truly amazing, We even planned self-itineraries which we enjoyed the sightseeing, shopping, food tour, nightlife, and get interact with the local people know about their culture and history what such a great privilege... Nice hotels they booked for us with tasty morning breakfast. Really great suggestions totally satisfied with this PRICELESS Experience. No regret and will not hesitate to recommend and book the future trip from Thrillophilia again real soon.
