My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our hike! We went on a very rainy Winter's day and had the day to ourselves. Our tour guide picked us up from City Hall Train Station and was a wonderful guide unfortunately we never introduced ourselves, so didn't get his name!. He shared some interesting history with us while we walked and spoke immaculate English. The hike definitely had some challenging parts, but it was great fun and we got to set our own pace. There was a bit of manoeuvring across stream on unsteady / sparsely spaced rocks, so it was an awesome adventure!
After a delicious lunch, we were taken to the day spa which we also got all to ourselves. There are separate areas for men and women, so I can only share my female experience. Traditional Korean Spas require you to get 100 nude which was an experience in itself. After several saunas and a mud treatment for women only! you take dips in different temperature pools before being scrubbed / exfoliated down - it was such a unique experience which I highly recommend.
If it's raining I suggest taking an extra set of clothes with you to change into after the spa, our clothes were a bit damp after the hike!
As we had the tour to ourselves that day they were also able to drop us off back at our accommodation. An awesome day tour! Thank you Viator and VIP Travel!

My husband and I loved this excursion! Our delightful, English speaking tour guide, Zoe, was just great! She knew the mountain well and paced the hike to be comfortable for us. She also had great knowledge of the history of the area. The hike gains elevation quickly and continues uphill for about 2 miles. The terrain is rocky and sometimes a bit slick. In many places there are long series of stone steps. But the view from the top is breathtaking! You see a panoramic vistas of the distant city on all sides of the mountain. We were lucky to be there on a very clear day.
We were not looking forward to the stop at the ginseng market, but at the end we were glad we stopped! There was a quick presentation about ginseng in a very nice facility and we left with some products to take at home. Be prepared that ginseng is fairly expensive. There is no requirement to buy anything. After the market, we went into the city for lunch, and then onto the spa.
If you have never been to a Korean Spa, you are in for an adventure! We loved it! Don't expected soothing spa music and pampering. Instead go with an adventurous attitude, be open, and have fun! The spa is divided into a men's side and a women's side and once you are on your side, nudity is the expectation. Even the staff wears only undergarments because the process of a good scrub is messy and wet! None of the spa staff spoke English, so there was a lot of pushing and pulling and pointing to keep us moving in the right direction. After a series of hot rooms and mud and saunas and soaks came a very invigorating full body scrub. All I can say is wow! My husband and I laughed and laughed as we recounted our experiences on the way back to the hotel.
I highly recommend this excursion if you are ready to get out of the city and into nature, history, and a bit of first hand culture.

Excellent hike and overall experience with friendly guide.
Spa experience was ok but little help was given to a newcomer to Korean spa - all ok though

Our guide was awesome. Very knowledgeable and slowed down for my girl friend's pace. The Spa was okay, they try to up sale you a bit, but they aren't overly pushy. We are happy and would do the tour again in a second

Beautiful hike. Invited to lunch with Buddist monk at temple on mountain. Also rice wine and scallion pancake at restaurant on mountain. Spa treatment was great after the strenuous hike.

The hike was physically more challenging than I expected, but that's because Im out of shape. The peak of the hike ended with a meal at the Monastery. Afterwards, I enjoyed a good clean at the spa which was relaxing to be in a warm to hot water spa, scrub, and dry sauna. The tour guide Chance was excellent to converse with. His English was good and he made the trip more fun. For a one day tour in Seoul, with short traveling times, I highly recommend this trip.

This was a really great tour. There was actually only three of us, and one person jammed at the last minute, so my daughter and I basically had a private tour. Glad they still ran it. The hike was spectacular and the spa was quite the experience. The only thing I would say is that the hike was not that easy, but we are experienced so that was ok. But the guide wouldn't have known we were good hikers, and he did not carry any supplies with him maybe like extra water or first aid. Your ad should have more emphasis that this hike is not for beginners. But since it was just the two of us, we rocked it!

Great tour. Our guide was really friendly and helpful. All was well organised. The climbing was a bit hard because it was raining that day but the temple at the top and the Buddha statue was well worth the effort. Lunch was in a nice restaurant. The visit in the Ginseng place was a bit rushed by the sales person who was more interested to sell us some stuff. The massage was excellent both to me and my wife. So really good value
