Wonderful day spent on this tour led by June; one of the best experiences I've had in South Korea. Big shout out to June for being a great driver (getting around so speedily and smoothly) and sharing so much interesting information about Jeju!

I have used this sim plan all over Asia. Works great. Just open the voucher in pdf format on your laptop and scan the QR code. Ten seconds later you have internet

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.

Super convenient! Easy to install and didn't experience much problems with weak signal. I'd recommend installing the eSIM over buying a physical one.

Easy to setup and able to check usage which is good to manage how much is left. Will purchase next time for my trip!
