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!

chesterfield, UK.
Highlights were the cultural shows visited independently, not on your itinerary !
Advice to other punters; fly in a day or two early and see the "changing of the guard" at the smaller palce in the city centre, plus every available cultural show for the traditional costumes and definately visit the horse/historical show in Jeju island-an absolute must !

Downside; the folk villages were a bit boring. You should visit the folk villages where they have people in traditional costume for the photo opportunities.

Good enough to use them again but some of the meal stops were not well planned . This was the first time the guide had done the trip and although she did extremely well under the circumstances the guides on other companies that I have used were far more informed.
