It was a nice experience with Captain Angelo and fellow travelers. We could visit all the stated places and had ample time everywhere. The Korean lunch, included in the activity, was good. The self-foot massage that followed our hiking was comforting. The prices could have been slightly lower though. However, I would recommend this trip for both solo/group travelers.

Really nice tour with great destinations. The group consisted of only six people. We had a lot of fun with the guide and the tour was very professional and well thought out. We especially liked the herb garden and the beach. Lunch was fantastic too. Highly recommended!

Our tour guide is nice and we were surprised to end of the day, there was a foot-bath, so that’s was really good. Enjoy the scenery at the UNESCO sites.

This tour is well packed and allowed me to visit many UNESCO spots. I felt that I had a very good overview of Jeju Island is about.

The excursion with June was wonderful: perfectly organized and very informative. I highly recommend taking her tours!
