Jeju: UNESCO Sites & Sunrise Peak Hiking Small Group Tour

2. Jeju: UNESCO Sites & Sunrise Peak Hiking Small Group Tour

Honje-Opsoye means welcome in the Jeju dialect. With its unique culture and breathtaking nature, Jeju has been selected as a top vacation and travel destination for both locals and foreign visitors. It is such a huge island that travelers often find it difficult to navigate by public transport or car rental. Join this small-group tour to all the UNESCO highlights of Jeju and visit the island's highlights in a more private setting. Start your day with a hotel pickup and head to Woljeongri Beach, one of the most popular beaches in Jeju, famous for its picturesque landscape and well-decorated cafes, to grab a cup of coffee. The emerald-colored ocean will welcome you and refreshingly start your day. The next stop is Manjang Cave, one of the UNESCO sites in Jeju, which is a lava tunnel filled with mysterious features. It will take around 1 hour of trekking to see and your tour guide will help you find interesting rocks and geographical features. Then, visit the Haenyeo (Woman Diver) Museum that tells the history of Haenyeo, Jeju's female divers registered as UNESCO's intangible heritage. Hungry after a bit of a walk? A Jeju black pork meal or bibimbap (vegetarian option) will be waiting for you at a nearby restaurant. Your next stop is Herb Park filled with various herbs and flowers, where you can experience a unique aroma foot spa. Arrive at Seongsan Sunrise Peak (Ilchulbong) for a light 1 hour of trekking. The peak, another UNESCO site, is a crater made by volcanic activity and is a signature must-visit place of Jeju Island. If you are lucky, you will be able to catch the beautiful sunset.

What people are saying about Jeju-si

We initially debated on the bus tour vs. this tour, but we are so glad we went with the private tour as it was custom tailored to our taste. Paul met us in our hotel lobby (not curbside), helped us formulate our itinerary, and then we were off. We requested to stop by a breakfast cafe, then Paul drove us to 5 different landscapes, with lunch in between at a local abalone restaurant. We got to see the beach, Seongsan Sunrise Peak, Manjanggul cave, Bijarim forest, and a folk village. My favorite was the forest as it was a relaxing walk with cool crisp air, but the other sites were very enjoyable as well. Throughout the whole tour, Paul gave us a lot of information about the sites and about Jeju which enhanced our experience greatly. Over all, we could not have been more pleased. Paul even accommodated our request to be dropped at the mall after the tour. We would definitely book with Paul again in the future if we ever get the chance to visit Jeju a 2nd time!

Awesome Personalized Tour

The guide (Jin) is very responsive, both through chat or email. His English is also very good so we didn't have any issue in communication. Jin is very knowledgable about Jeju, we bought 3 days of the trips and get personalised itinerary based on our interest. We were very happy with his food recommendations too! The car that was used was very comfortable and the seat is spacious. At the end of our trips, we even get some souvenirs from Jin, it was beautiful! If you want to explore Jeju with local expert, do not hesitate to use this service!

Our guide, June, speaks excellent English and I was very impressed with her ecological and geological knowledge! I learned a lot that day! June even goes all out to find recommendations on activities we wanted to do after the tour ends and even drops us there!

Great communication ( via email and WhatsApp) organizing the day leading into the tour ( thanks June). Perfectly organized tour and guide (Jin) a pleasure to tour with. Well done!
