- This was a great tour, and our tour leader - Coco - was fantastic. Highlights were a day visit to Seroak National Park, Buseoska temple, the lava tubes of Jeju Island, and free day on Jeju (which I spent meandering along the Olle trails). The itinerary was good, and ran at a comfortable pace (if you like busy trips! And I do!), however it might be a good idea to extend the trip to 14 days in order to benefit from it crossing three weekends. There is plenty to see to justify the extra time!
One slight disappointment was the templestay, and only because of the particular temple used, which was small (which in a way was nice, and it was in a lovely setting) but with so few monks that the experience felt extremely "put on" for us, rather than that we were partaking in the usual routines of the temple.
The homestay was lovely; the family welcoming and the meal they served us delicious.
The accommodation was clean, conveniently placed, and of a good standard. Filtered water is freely available in South Korea, meaning less waste plastic!
