After the performance, be returned to your accomodation to finish the evening.

    I would like to say that this was completely worth with the money spent. The dinner was lovely and the Korean Show was fantastic. I would like to especially thank Joy our guide for giving us a great overview and just being pleasant. She took time to let us know the story line of the show. Without having this overview we wouldn’t have known what the show was about. Excellent experience!!

    We booked this on a whim, so we weren't expecting much. The tour was quirky (i.e. the petite france theme park) but overall the experience exceeded our expectations! We loved Nami Park but probably would have ditched the Theme Park in favor of more time there. The final stop at the garden was amazing and definitely an unexpected highlight.

I would recommend this tour. The female guide was very dedicated, informative and friendly. Even though I couldn't understand everything all the time I still learned something new. There were 3 stops and you always had like 10-15 minutes for yourself which were more than enough for me. So, if your are in Seoul you should visit the DMZ.

Despite the closed demilitarized zone, the alternative was equally interesting, largely because of the guide, which made the tour very interesting.

We had a really good day, with a very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. I can fully recommend this company for a DMZ tour.

Good value for money. Im sure you can get more in depth tours, but for the price this one is great

It was a great tour and covered everything listed. Very knowledgeable and helpful tour guide.
