Very good package if you want to 'tick the box' for all the sites, but be warned, its a very long action packed day. We started at ~8am (waiting for the bus) and got back to our pickup site around ~8:30pm. A good 12hour day. I travelled as a couple, but noticed a few young couples travelling with young kids, can be a bit overwhelming/tiring for the kids. We started with the petite France (approx 1hour) - a bit rushed to see everything, puppet show was a good highlight. Morning glory gardens (a bit over 1hour) - enough time to skim through the whole gardens for some pictures, but not enough to sit down for a coffee and relax to take it all in. Nice gardens overall. Nami island (approx 2hours) - generous amount of time to skim through the whole island and fit in lunch as well. Maple trees haven't fully oranged at this time. Still looked good, but I heard would be better towards end of Oct start Nov. The best for me I think was the rail bike trail, to finish off the day at around 5:30pm. Timing was quite good as we got to see the sunset and scenery, but it did get pretty cold during this time (17oct). We thought the 40min bike ride was going to be a challenge (for a person who sits in the office all day, and hardly goes on an exercise bike), but surprisingly, it was quite easy for 4ppl. Most of the time it was downhill, and we just let the bike roll on its own. We were pressing on the brakes more than pedalling...So, if I can do it, anyone can. :) Overall, highly recommended tour if you are looking to cover all 4 attractions to tick the box, and don't mind the slight rush and the long day. If you are looking at a relaxing tour where you have time to sit down and enjoy a coffee or waffle here or there. This tour may not be so recommended for you. :) If you have young children, still doable, but can be quite a long day for them.
This is the ultimate Gapyeong tour visiting 4 famous destinations in Gapyeong in one day!
The name "Petite France" tells pretty much everything about this small French village in countryside of Korea! Themed with 3 main subjects, "Flowers, Stars, and the Little Prince", the whole village provides you with an utterly different atmosphere from anywhere in Korea.
✓ In addition to Little Prince, the village takes pride on their vibrant cottages and antique galleries. Travel back in time & space and visit old french houses filled with antique furnitures and decorates.
Perfect place for those who are in need of a break from the busy life in the big city! Entering the island by ferry (or zipline) itself already gives you the feeling of being transported to a different world. As the ferry approaches the island, you will see why this place is one of the must-visit places in Korea. Have a peaceful stroll over the island with the Han river in the backdrop, and yummy street food in your hand if you would like.
✓ Take photos on this iconic Metasequoia road in Nami Island!
✓ Nami Island is also known as the filming location for Winter Sonata
Gangchon Rail Bike
✓ The bike is semi-automated so requires minimum amount of physical activity. (But still needs some pedalling to match speed of other railbikes.)
Garden of Morning Calm
Garden of Morning Calm which is the oldest private garden in Korea is arguably one of the most beautiful places to have a peaceful stroll or a romantic walk. Take a breather at this delightful garden with a stunning variety of colourful flowers blossoming all-year-round.
✓ Garden of morning calm has 30 different themed gardens. So make sure you pick up a guide map at the entrance and don't miss anything!
✓ With paths and flowers running in curves and circles, you can't help but feel like you are Alice in Wonderlands
