"Fabulous Day"
February, 2015
This tour was amazing. Our guide, YB (Yong Bok), was knowledgable, personable and very enjoyable to spend the day with. He really tried to make people welcome and was always willing to take photos and answer questions. The sights around the volcanoes were incredible. Having never been this close to active volcanoes we were amazed at the variety and beauty of what at first seems desolate landscape. The lunch location was the best of any of our 4 tours. Thanks YB for a great day.
