I had an amazing time on Geoje Island with them this weekend

Chuseok on Geoje Island & Other: 2016

Rachel Reiter
We had an excellent time on this trip! The location, food, and environment were awesome, and we met some amazing people and truly enjoyed the diversity of activities available. Derrick, Sugi, and Michael were super helpful-- especially today when we were almost stranded on the island due to bad weather and a lack of taxis (we took our own bus in from Gwangju). The only negative thing I have to say about the trip is that the food was really not anything to write home about-- it was a super meaty meat party with little to no vegetables, so after 4 days my stomach is feeling a little worse for wear. Like any big group trip there were small delays for activities, etc.. but they were always handled with a smile and a sense of humor, and all in all I have to say that it was an awesome experience!!

Alana Connell
Just back from the Geoje trip. Had a great time. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. It was very relaxed. Only bad thing is having to leave and go back to reality. Thanks for a great trip guys!

Russell Hannah
We booked a fishing charter through Derrick & Sugi at Waegook Travel. We all had the best time and although I personally didn't catch a fish everybody else did. The skipper and crew were awesome and at the end of the trip they filleted the fish so we could take home. Also cut up fresh sashimi at Derrick and Sugi's beach house. I highly recommended booking through Waegook Travel.

Miche Shamrock
You guys all rocked my world. I am so lucky as a new expat to have fallen upon this trip and have met so many awesome individuals whom I will stay friends with long after. The island was so beautiful and magical and felt like a little piece of paradise. Hope to see most of you soon. Mad love.

Kathleen Davis
I had a great time on this trip! There were many options to explore and experience the island, and most of them were offered on multiple days so you could customize your trip but also left plenty of time to relax without missing anything . The hosts were amazing, and did the best they could, organizing the amount of people that came. I personally had a great time, and would love to do it again. Thanks for an amazing weekend guys xo

We were a family of 6 ppl. We thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Derrick n Sugi r really cooperative and attentive ppl. Even extremely busy.....but Sugi always answered my querries n provided me with required things. Great job duos!!

Fahad Abro
It was good tour of 3 nights. The beach house had amazing view of wahyon beach. The bar b q ATV KYAKNG every thing was great.

Matthew Cantwell McCormick
This was my first time using a travel service and I couldn't have been happier with it! The staff are some of the nicest people you could hope to meet and the optional extras give you flexibility to have as structured or unstructured a trip as you'd like.

The trip was not without it's challenges and some waiting but even these moments were filled with fun good humor and didn't take anything away from my experience.
Looking forward to my next trip with Waegook Travel!

Dave Rover
Just did the Cheosuk Holiday Tour. Lots of laughs and many new friends. Drank a little too much alcohol though
;) cheers Derrick, Sugi and Michael.

Niekie Pullen
Awesome Chuseok breakaway. Thanks Derrick Sugi and Michael Suh ...job well done!! My liver needs a break ( not right now coz it is indeed still weekend, but soon).

Delazeri Greg
I've had several unforgettable trips with Waegook Travel. My first experience was completely spontaneously turning up through a friend referral and not knowing what to expect. We managed to do everything we wanted and more, both Derrick and Sugi co-ordinated all our activities and the whole experience to make it as laid back and enjoyable as possible. Some activities involved a first attempt at fishing, rowing, quad biking, bbq's and more. I have since used other event services in korea but have yet to find one with such a complete package.

I was referred to them through a friend and I have every reason to refer others to them as well. I can't wait till I get a chance to try it again! thanks for the experience!!!

Sunny Kang
Great organization, great Sugi and Derrick, amazing food!!! Perfect!!

We just arrived in Seoul, what an amazing apartment we got here it is all automatic.

Yes was a lot of fun, Friday and Saturday night stand out, was good to have some company for a change.
