We had such a fun trip, our tour guide was so entertaining and made learning about history that much for fun for me. It was a saddening history but the way she portrayed it was both respectful and comedic at the same time. All in all it was a wonderful experience and will definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to try the dmz tour.

Everything was well arranged and the guide was excellent. She is really good at storytelling and keeping the crowd's attention. Even though we had a rainy and cloudy day, she managed to keep us happy during the tour. This is a must do activity when you are in Seoul!

Excellent guide to all you need to know about the DMZ. Jung was affable, organized and great at laying out a history of the the two Koreas. Witty, charming and exceptionally reliable. I would go back again. It is money well spent -more than worth it! Go!

our Guide Ms. Jung was very knowledgeable and gave us all the right information to enjoy the tour to DMZ.

We had fun the whole day.. Charlie is a great guide and driver.. thank you so much..
