Our family had a fantastic time touring in Jeju with Joan! She took us to many fantastic sites and gave us plenty of time for us to go at our own pace. She told stories in the car, made us laugh and smile, and overall showed us a great time in Jeju! Thank you so much Joan!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh! Jennifer! Thank you so much to say this enough^^ way. I was happy and cozy with you. I have to say "Thank you so mych Jennifer!"

Joan was an excellent guide. Hired her services for a customised 3 days tour around Jeju. We got MORE THAN what we had expected. Always mindful of her customer's interests, Joan would be more than willing to make on the spot changes in order to accommodate our needs. We would certainly recommend Joan as a guide. A very pleasant and fun person to be with. Joan is extremely knowledgeable about Jeju's history, culture and natural setting. All these made our stay in Jeju a truly memorable & insightful one.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow! It was a really wonderful gift from Santa for Christmas! I appreciate your so sweat feedback. I had a memorable time with you. I still feel the sound, "Me three!" I felt like you as good friends. Hope you come back Jeju and enjoy more. ^^ God bless you. Thank you again.

Tour: Tour for Claire's Family, Jeju, South Korea

This is my second time having Joan as our tour guide in Jeju. My family and I enjoyed the trip, even though the weather is hot beyond imagination. Joan had to re-plan the routes many times because, after the first day, we felt that it's too hot to visit outdoor places, so we requested for indoor venues, preferably with air-conditioning. Joan was always introducing us to iconic places in Jeju, and letting us know the history behind these places.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Claire! How are you? It is still hot here Jeju. But I can feel that fall is coming with cool air after sunset. It was so happy to meet you again and felt sorry for really sizzling weather. I really appreciate your kind and warm review. Thank you so much. God bless you and your family. With Love, Joan

Tour: Jeju Tour for Esther Tsen, Jeju, South Korea
Date: May 19/17

Was apprehensive about doing a Korean tour since we didn't speak the lingo and we were put at ease by Joan. She customise our tour and 'detoured' to our fancy. We totally enjoyed our time with her and would take another tour with Joan any day. She gave personalised and humane (didn't make us go on tour at 8 am but an earthly hour of 9 am). She drove us to out of reach places to eat and shop where the locals ate and bargained for us!Truly a gem!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Esther What a lovely comments for me. I really appreciate the time with you. Through your family, I could make my heart much more warm. I hope your cat recover soon. With love, Joanne

It was mine and my cousins first time to jeju island so we wanted to learn as much as we could about the island through a tour. It's our first time being on a tour and it seriously was the best decision we've made. Joan was wonderful, not only did she take us to all the attractions we wanted to go to but also more on top of that. She even drove around the sea to show us a beautiful view. Very thoughtful, kind, and patient person. We learned so much from her and definitely would book a tour in th future.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nancy, What an excellent present to me!!!^^ These days I am very busy but after reading your review, I feel full of energy. Thank you so much and I am missing your wonderful big smile with your friends. It was definitely my luck to be with you in Jeju.

Tour: Eastern Jeju Tour for Yoram, Jeju, South Korea
Date: Sep 18/16

We just spent two wonderful days in Jeju, with Joan being our guide. We met her in the lobby of our hotel and she drove us through beautiful sites in eastern Jeju. Even though the weather was not welcoming, Joan's smile and attitude rendered our journey very pleasant and welcoming. Joan is what one would call a mature, knowledgeable and very pleasant tour guide who understands her customers very well and who is willing and in fact adjusts the tour so as to best fit her customer needs and wishes.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for a really nice feedback. I am so happy thanks to your encouragement. I will keep doing my best responding to your feedback. I hope I can meet you again in Jeju. Wish God bless you. ^^

Best tour guide we can ever get~! Joan is more like a friend than a guide, she is always thinking for us, making sure we get the best service when we make purchases, letting us try out traditional food and even ensuring we get breakfast! Excellent suggestions which gave us a good view and tour of Jeju. Thank you so much! :)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jeslyn. I also think you as my friends.^^

We enjoyed our Jeju tour with Joan. She tried her best to please all of us. Given the short time of our stay (6 hours) in Jeju, we were able to do most of our planned tour itinerary. Joan is very flexible , very accommodating , very nice. She even made sure that our lunch was served properly. Plus, she was our handy " money changer"....she computes conversion rates honestly. Again, thank you, Joan! We had a great time in Jeju!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Bennt and sorry for late reply. I hope you are happy at anywhere and anytime. Thank you again.^^

I had the pleasure of having Joan and Mr Choi take us on a private tour of Jeju island. Words cannot express my gratitude and thanks to both of them for providing an unforgettable experience. Joan conversed with us in English and explained the history of the island, the place and provided lots of useful information. It can be seen that she is indeed a knowledgeable guide. Joan is also a meticulous guide and also made an effort to get to know us as her friends instead of mere customer.

Sheldon Meyers


Tour: South & East tour with botanical garden, Jeju, South Korea
Date: Oct 20/14

I guess we were very fortunate to have excellent guides on our entire trip in this region, and in comparison Joan was one of the weaker ones. Not enough enthusiasm in presentation, did not plan itinerary, and confused last stop.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sorry for not making a perfect tour. Although I did my best, in fact, I was a little embarrassed becuase it was impossible to make a full and perfect tour based on the itinerary that I got (too short time from far east to west for a half day) and the Hanyeo Museum closed because it was Monday. Next time, if I can a more chance to have tour with you, I'll do my best with full enthusiasm based on my own plan. Thank you.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We are sorry for Sheldon´s words and as Joan is new with us we will better help her to customize her own tours.
