Very easy to plan and communicate with our travel specialist ( Thrillophilia ) this is our first abroad trip!!! the agent whom I spoke with was very polite, knowledgable, and friendly kept asking me questions after questions about what we actually wanted on the trip. Right from the airport we get picked-up on time and the company representative already waited for us at the arrival areas and we get transfers to the hotel and as well helps us with all the documentation process and checked-in. the pre-booked hotel was good at a good location with courteous staff and delicious morning breakfast. They even there to help us at any time through WhatsApp and call the operators were very supportive and were there to helps us at any time. We really enjoyed the trips to Jeju Island and its attractions were mind-blowing, in Aqua Planet which we witness much marine life and we even covered the beautiful gardens the Spirited Garden & Bonsai Garden and we explored the island like anything. During our leisure day, we had planned our own itineraries as we went sightseeing, spa, shopping for souvenirs, and definitely food tours. It was such an amazing trip thanks alot for everything.
