We did the Korean BBQ and Gukje Market excursion. Our tour guide was very informative and organized. We went to the Gukje Market and we had the choice of staying with the tour guide or exploring on our own. we deduced to explore on our own. We went to a nearby park and it was beautiful with all the flowers and cherry blossoms blooming. We also went to the Busan Tower and went to the top to get a 360 degree view of Busan. Our tour guide took us to a local restaurant where we had traditional Korean BBQ. This lunch was little more organized, but I think some people were afraid to eat with the utensils because we started with raw food and then we cooked it ourselves. Many people did not know ow to use the chop sticks and I think they felt they were cross contaminating the utensils that they cooked with and then used to eat with. We felt a little rushed eating and trying to get back on the bus so that they could take us back to the port. I would have preferred to have spent more time in the shopping district and trying the street food...it looked delish. Since we did not know the area well, I think the $69.95 fee per person was fair, but I am sure more adventurous people could do their own tour for a lot cheaper and they could possibly see more?

Fell in love with this place on my visits, the food is amazing and the fish market was like nothing I have ever seen before. A great blend of tradition and modern technology.
