  • "Wonderful experience"

    So glad I chose to travel over by Beetle to Korea. Although quicker to fly to Seoul the journey I had was amazing experience and quite unexpected. Staff were lovely and having hot coffee and a sandwich was an added bonus. Depending on the weather the wifi doesn't always work although I did manage to connect with friends on Facebook while we were travelling. I travelled in November and was not at all seasick. In fact I was astonished at how smooth the sea was. A really great experience that i would advise any visitor to Japan or Korea to embark upon at least once in their lifetime.
