        Fun and informative DMZ tour!
        Had an enjoyable and informative time touring the DMZ. Really appreciated our host, Charles, giving us the historic background of what we were seeing. He was a great tour guide! Very interesting to peer into the distance and see North Koreans going about their business.

        Charles was a fantastic guide
        Charles provided in-depth explanations of the DMZ's significance, its history, and the impact of the Korean War. His storytelling skills brought the experience to life, making it feel more like a journey through time. Charles was enthusiastic, energetic, and maintained a positive attitude throughout the tour. His ability to answer all our questions and provide additional personal insights was impressive.

        Spring was a great and passionate tour guide. Her pride in her country and passion for reunification is heartwarming. Although I’ve researched a lot about Korea, her passion brought another dimension to my understanding of the history of Korea

        DMZ Tour
        Tour and tour guide, Ms Spring was great. Lots of time to explore on our own & take pictures. Sadly, lunch time was not included so we had to grab our food during the time given to us to walk around.

        Splendid day at the DMZ
        The programme was very well planned and our guide, Kim explained every little details about the sights that we were seeing. She also knew all the photo stops that would allow us to take beautiful pictures. We highly recommend the programme with the suspension bridge as the view was simply stunning!

      I booked the Tour through Tripadivisor, in the form there was a field to put the the address of the hotel to verify pick-up availaibility at 9:00. I did that and the fead back was positive., thus I booked the tour.

      Unfortunately it was not enough, the night before the tour day , I received a message asking me to be in a specific place at 8:00 ,since for my hotel was not foreseen the pickup (instead when i booked the pick-up was availlable) and blaming me (first time ever in korean) for not knowing the Seoul geography. To be there I would have to leave my hotel at 7:30, considering 8 hour shift on my shoulders and 12 our fly the day before it was not an option. The referee of the company blamed me also for expecting a pick up so far from city center considering it was a group tour and not a private one. I asked for a replacement with a private tour paying the difference, the only option for tour operator was refund. Very unreliable company 0 flexibility.

      In general, the trip could have been a good summary of several must-see sites. It's quite disappointing for a few reasons:
      1) The tour guide gave very little information. Basically, it was a tour with no guide. You could easily call a cab to tour around the area, which is much cheaper.
      2) The North Seoul Tower was the highlight of the trip, but the guide discouraged us from going up there. Not only had a few people, including myself, paid the fee going up out of our own pockets, we only had 50 minutes going up and down while also touring the park, coz the guide didn't think it's worth the time. But please go up there, especially find the famous toilets with stunning views. It's worth your time.
      3) Many people mentioned the ginseng tour. So I was ok with it mentally. But what bothered me was some of the statements they claimed. I googled them. Not true.
      4) The lunch was covered, but the meal was the worst one I had during my stay in Seoul.
      5) The choice of the last site was poor.

      I had a nice time in Seoul, and people there were polite and friendly. Among the three local tours I took. This one was the only disappointing one.

      We made last a minute reservation for an all day tour when we didn’t have advance plans.

      Our adventure started bright and early, a bit after 8am the next day.

      Yujeong was very thorough and upbeat while paying attention to details such as accounting for wandering tour members and time management of each attraction stop. Yujeong whisked us past long lines, got us the best perspectives for photos, and did it all very humorous stories, jokes, and history sprinkled throughout.

      The tour itself brought us from Gyeongbokgung Palace to North Seoul Tower to Namsangol Hanok Village. The details are more than I can rightfully explain in this review. But I’ll say that it was very well worth the cost and filled our day with fond memories!

      It was good to be picked up for the tour, I enjoyed the trip across town and being delievered back to my hotel. The tour itself was average. The worst part was the ginseng thing. The tour guide started extolling the virtues of ginseng and we were taken to a building, corralled inside in an attempt to get us to buy ginseng. About half of the group were suggestible and bought the six year, yes, didn't you know, it must be six year old ginseng. They called it a 'no shopping tour' - they thats a lie.

      This is definitely an unforgettable tour… I have been to multiple countries and done many tours and the tour guide usually sets the pace if the tour would be interesting or mediocre. 진 연이 is such a superb guide! She was very informative with all the famous landmarks and it was pretty cool to hear some Korean history on the side. She was very patient and answered each question with such gusto. Also, she was very encouraging and enthusiastic in helping me learn Korean since she’s aware that I’m studying it.

      Thank you again and we really appreciate your hard work and effort in making this tour super 대박. My mom and I will always remember this day. 고맢습니다!

      It was very easy booking the trip and for all the sightings I think the price is very affordable. I think the chosen places in the guide were really nice as well and the tour overall was rly well put together.

      Our tour guide was Yeoni and she was incredibly sweet and nice! It felt very relaxing going on this trip due to Yeoni making sure everything was under control. I was very happy with her as our guide and have no complaints :)

      A little side note would be to make sure that they can contact you on either your phone number, WhatsApp or KakaoTalk. They weren’t able to get in contact with me at first and had to write an email, but they made sure they could contact me and everything worked out in the end

      Well worth the cost. The price of lunch and the entry fees into the attractions and cable car rides for Seoul Tower were probably half of the cost of the entire tour. Great value to spend all day with a knowledgeable guide around the city. I had PK as my guide and he was extremely helpful. Not only did he explain Korean history and culture well but also was very helpful for providing recommendations about where to go and what to see based on each person's personal plans after the tour. I only had 1 full day to spend in Seoul so this was easily the best way to explore the highlights of the city in a limited time period.

      Excellent tour hitting many of the major sites to see in Seoul!

      Everything was organized and timed out well and our tour guide Spring was incredibly friendly and informative.

      This was my first time in Seoul and this was a great low stress way to see the city without having to figure out an itinerary of your own.

      This tour covered the major spots in Seoul and was very interesting thanks to our tour guide Yujeong. She is very sweet and made sure she explained all the important points about the history in a succinct manner, while also giving us enough time to explore on our own, take photos, etc.
      The lunch included was really good and covered all dietary preferences. The ginseng center was also very good.
      Yujeong was really attentive and made sure everyone was dropped off to their right location.
      Highly recommend!
