8-seater van is the standard size car for 1-7 passengers. Some people asked “Can we get the cheaper car by switching with smaller size?” Unfortunately, our reply is “In Korea, this car (called GRAND STAREX manufactured by HYUNDAI MOTOR) price is just 20% more expensive than normal sedan (let’s say SONATA with 2,000cc engine). As a travel agent, no need to buy normal sedan because normal sedan capacity cannot accommodate 1) more than 3 people (except for the driver) and 2) more than 2 travel luggage.
If you look the photo below, the total number of seats is 11. Therefore, we need to call this car as 11-seater van. But, because our clients need to bring the travel luggage, the 4th row seat should be folded for the luggage space.
Also, our company doesn’t allow the client sit on the middle seats* on 2nd, 3rd row. Therefore, when you carry the travel luggage, the suitable number of seats is 5 (one person next to the driver, two people on the 2nd row and two people on the 3rd row. But, if you travel without the big luggage…like NAMI ISLAND DAY TRIP, additional two people can sit on the 4th row seats. In this case, the total number of passengers including the driver is 8.
*But, your children can sit here.
No, our tour is characterized by No forced shopping, No compulsory tipping, which are commonly included in the group tours. But, we welcome your small money in return for gratitude.
By the number of your family/group, we would provide one of following three size cars.
▪ 8-seater van* for 1-7 passengers
▪ 15-seater bus* up to 14 passengers
▪ 45-seater bus* up to 44 passengers
Also, you can choose one of following variations.
▪ Luxury sedan up to 3 passengers
▪ Luxury 15-seater bus up to 14 passengers

*The difference between van and bus
In the van, you cannot stand up. Therefore, you need to bend your body forward if you get on the van.

Unfortunately, the answer is no. For the last 9 years, we had been providing the itinerary and quote in response to your tailor-made request. But, we realized some people contacted us to get the itinerary/information only. Because our itineraries and quotes are very detailed, our sales desk staffs need to spend the time at least 2 hours unless your request is just simple like “How much is the price for 8-seater van for 6pax between your hotel and NAMI ISLAND?”
Therefore, we decided to provide the itinerary and quote with a kind of consulting fee of US$30 (up to 5 days), or US$50 (more than 5 days). After receiving our output, you can request to customize the itinerary further without any cost.
Absolutely, we don’t charge any amount for this service for our repeating clients.
Here is our policy about refund and cancellation.
Sure, you can.
Though you don’t hire an English, or Chinese speaking guide, we can accommodate your family/group.
Then, our driver will drop off & pick up your family/group as per the itinerary.
Some people misunderstand that they can direct “Let’s go to A”, “Let’s move to B”,…without planned itinerary.
But, we don’t accept the transportation service without the itinerary because we need to calculate the cost in light of logistics, parking fee, the driver’s lunch time slot,…
Especially, the logistics at JEJU ISLAND should be considered in advance because the space of JEJU ISLAND is 1,848 km2 (714 sq mi).
If you don’t have the itinerary, don’t worry, we can assist you to formulate an itinerary.
