Guided tour for exploring Jeju's iconic places
This is my own pick for a comprehensive 2 days tour of Jeju island, allowing you to discover the main highlights of the island in 2 days.
Jeju island is 3 times bigger than Seoul, so a 2-days tour could not be enough for you to explore the island.
Basically, Jeju tour should go on 3 parts of Jeju basis : west, south and east, each of which has its own features and different faces.
But through this 'Going around the Island Tour', you can visit iconic natural sites along with cultural touch and signature food, circling the island in my spacious and comfortable car.
Background stories and technical information will be told at each destination.
Often you may be bumped into by unexpected wonder and beauty of nature or warm-hearted locals.
If you want, I can focus more in certain areas if you like! Just let me know and I will customize the itinerary to your desires.

We had a great time with Lydia on our 2 days tour. She is really knowledgeable about the local history & stories, and super patient with us when we took our time at some sites. She also knows all the best spots for good pics plus good places to pick up nice local gifts / shopping. For the food, we wanted to try the local items - she took us to awesome eateries frequented by locals for really yummy lunches, ice cream, milk tea, etc. All in all, we had a great tour! Kudos, well done & thank you, Lydia!
