What people are saying about Seoul

A visit to a variety of important sites with a knowledgeable guide.

Do this tour! Exactly 9.5 hours from Seoul departure point and return, as advertised, which is great. You need that time to see everything and could have used another 30 minutes at the JSA Visitors Center. This tour included 5 to 6 locations that are a must-see for first timers to the DMZ. The guide spoke good enough English and she did a good job explaining the basic history and acronyms of the DMZ boundaries. Customers should do a little reading of the Korean War and following cold war history before going. To get to all the tour locations, there is a lot of bus transport and switching buses involved, which can be tiring, so be rested and hydrated. Not a lot of time at any location, sometimes only 20-30 minutes, but that is actually enough. The infamous conference building, where you step over the border into North Korea, is a cool experience. No feeling of danger. Even though the war isn't over, this seems like a good money-maker attraction for the JSA and North Koreans now.

Tour guide was very efficent and the Hanbok dressing was super fun.

Our Tour guide Cindy was very kind, has lots of enery and was well-informed about our destinations and the history, which she could well explain. The Temples were beautiful and the Hanbok dressing was so much fun in the studio, in my opinion much better then outside in the burnning sun and to many crowded people at the attractions. Was the suggestion of our experienced tour guide. I recommed it.

Great way to experience current events and history

Fantastic multilingual guide who spoke English and Japanese (and Korean, of course). She wove in her own experience of speaking directly with defectors which enriched the experience. I felt that I understood a bit more about the history of the North and South, that it was an ongoing situation and very current.

Educational and Emotional, a Very Unique Tour Experience

This tour was unlike any tourism opportunity I have ever had. Being able to speak face-to-face with a North Korean defector about his experience while touring the DMZ is an educational and emotional experience. I think any citizen of a free country has a lot to gain from this tour.
