What you'll do

This experience will make you discover the true beauty of Busan and teach you about the culture and history of the city.

We will start out the day with an early morning walk through the magnificent Ahopsan Bamboo forest with some trees that are over 400 years old.

And secondly, Haedong Yonggung temple. Unlike most of the other temples in Korea which are located on the mountainside, this temple is situated at the seaside. It is a very distinctive and famous sight in Busan. At the temple, you will hear legendary tales about the place and how Buddhism has shaped Korean history and people for many years.

After that, we will explore Dongbaek Island Park. This park is located off at the end of Haeundae beach which is the most beloved beach in Korea. While strolling around the island, you can oversee an expansive view of the beautiful sea of Busan, meanwhile, you will be also told local stories of Busan.

We will visit Bupyeong Ggangtong (Canned) traditional Market which is the biggest and most vibrant market in Busan. While trying some of the delicious local food for lunch, you can also learn about the history and culture of the local food.

Lastly, we will explore Huinnyeoul Culture Village that truly represents the modern history of Busan. We will explore the alleyways together and learn about how Busan history developed over time.

I’m running a tour company in Busan and introducing my city to travelers by showing them around with story-telling. I feel very blessed and happy with my job. My motto in my business is not only to satisfy my customers with good service but also make them feel like they went on a trip with their friends.

I hope, with Airbnb, it will bring me a chance to introduce true Busan’s beauty to Airbnb travelers and to be a good friend with them like a friend they can always come back to.

I wrote Jesse I would like to go on this trip and he told me that I will be alone if it is okay. I didn't mind so I bought it. I am glad I did because it was really nice. Jesse knows the background of every place we visited and was kind to answer all my question. He didn't make me feel embarrassed even though I was alone. I felt like I am on a trip with a friend. If you are thinking about going, just go. It is worth it.

It was a private tour for us and it was magical. This was our second tour with Jesse (his Night tour was also spectacular). We were really pleased with some of the unique locations. Jesse changed the itinerary slightly to make it more enjoyable for us. (e.g we replaced the fish market with another market and replaced one of the locations that we had seen before). There were many photo opportunities and Jesse took lots of photos of us too. Each of the points of interests was unique and amazing To anyone still trying to decide: just do it. It's worth it. Jesse has travelled around the world and understands what people want to do/see/photograph. I highly recommend Jesse.

It was a wonderful experience! Jesse is not only a great guide but also a great guy, who managed to blend the sightseeing-talk and the personal talk perfectly. Thus, even (or better: especially) the ways between the sights were never boring. The tour itself is carefully crafted and Jesse is able to nudge it a little here and there to Male the experience truly personal. I would definitely go again!
