Know More about this tour

After morning pickup from your Seoul hotel, travel by comfortable air-conditioned coach to Nami Island, a distance of 37 miles (60km). Upon arrival, you’ll enter the ‘Naminara Republic’ – an imaginary country with its own passport, currency, stamp and telephone card!

Released in Korea in 2002, Winter Sonata (Gyeoul Yeonga) quickly became one of the most popular shows on Korean television. Follow your friendly guide to locations where the main characters of Winter Sonata shared the screen and won the hearts of their fans. You’ll stroll along tree-lined paths where the starring couple, Yu-jin and Jun-sang, had some of their most memorable moments.

Check out Winter Sonata posters on life-sized signs throughout Nami Island, highlighting locations where important scenes were filmed. Get fun photos with the statue of the star-crossed lovers in the center of the island for a memorable souvenir.

Depending on the season, you’ll experience different views of the island. In the summer, visitors enjoy boating; in the fall you can see the leaves changing colors; and winter brings snowy landscapes, like the backdrop to Yu-jin and Jun-sang’s first kiss.

Enjoy lunch at one of the restaurants on Nami Island (own expense), then return to your coach to drive to nearby Petite France, a French village set in the Korean countryside! The village features a building dedicated to Saint-Exupery, the author of the beloved French novel The Little Prince (Le Petit Prince). Have time to stroll through the village, look at the art gallery and boutique shops, and snap photos of the scenery, which includes a human-size sculpture of the Little Prince.

After taking in the charms of Petite France, return to your coach and stop by the Duty Free Shop for some shopping before your ride back to your Seoul hotel where your tour ends.

  • Very nice place and again too rush. We do not have enough time to explore as we are only given 45 mins.

  • I highly recommend this tour package! Our tour guide, Peter, did an amazing job. He is very informative and very accomodating. We enjoyed our tour in Busan! Thank you so much Peter!!

  • Highly recommended tour! The tour guide was extremely helpful and we had a lovely time at Nami Island and Petite France

  • I wish we had more time at nami island but our tour guide was great.

  • The tour guide was not very professional. I was expecting the tour to be a little more organized.

  • what was to be a 90 minute drive became a 3 1/2 hour crawl on the clogged up highway to nami island from seoul! take the train,especially on weekends! had to walk the last km as the traffic was simply crazy! on nami island,it was really too crowded.island is beautiful but the amount of people around,many seemed to be koreans,was unbelievable! as our tour bus has to pick the 16 of us from various hotels around the city,we spent way too much time stuck in the bus crawling along! maybe on a weekday it would be better.

  • Pickup was again punctual. The land transfer to the jetty to catch the ferry was rather long. Ferry ride was a non event, took us all of 5 minutes. The Nami island is nice and scenic, and if you're a Winter Sonata K-drama fan, you'll like it even more.
    Quite a number of quaint shops and eating places: recommend that you try the "topoki" and vegetable pancakes. Oh, the guide did give us each 10,000 KRW as lunch money.
    After lunch, we took ferry back to the 'mainlland' and went to see the residence of the 2 Winter Sonata stars. However, this residence is no longer opened to public (the owner apparently got pissed with too many tourists visits hehe) so it was only a photo stop. After this, we went to Chun Meon (the little Myeongdong) - lots of street food for us to sample. We also were brough to see the scenic path which the 2 lovers from Sonata ride bicycles on during the K-drama.
    After that, it was a long drive back to hotel.

  • It was a wonderful tour. the tour guide was very prompt and the trip to Nami Island was very interesting and awesome to say the least. My daughter and I truly enjoyed every moment and they will be memories we will surely cherish and treasure. The tour guide was very considerate and attentive to our demands. Thank you Viator for the memorable experience

  • On the second day, we visited Nami Island. The tour bus arrived right on time, 7.30 am on the dot. Our tour guide was Jenny. We were lucky because she was not only knowledgeable of the places, but also friendly, funny and thoughtful. We enjoyed the tour, the trip and the company tremendously.

  • I had an awesome time. My guide, I think his name is Mr Ho is funny, knowledgable and sings for us! He snapped pictures for us, assisted restaurant staff when they were busy so that we could enjoy our food. Mr Ho brought us the areas on the island where he thought we could take nice pictures.
