        Mimi the guide brought sunshine on a cloudy day
        Mimi the tour guide was a very vibrant and knowledgeable person to escort us around the highlights of Busan. The highlight was the Jagalchi fish market and seafood lunch. Mimi was very kind and helpful with my mother escorting her up and down stairs at different locations.

        Small group DMZ tour
        It was more than I was expecting. It was easy to move around because it was a smaller group. The tour guide, Mr. Jones, was knowledgeable and nice. Thank you for all you did.

        A very knowledgeable guide and fun day out
        We just had two great days with Jones the tour guide. First the Seoul City Tour and second DMZ and Suspension Bridge. Jones is very informative, friendly and professional. DMZ is a must do, especially third tunnel which was incredible to see in real life. We had two great days out.

        DMZ Tour
        James was very knowledgeable and professional, we had best out of the trip with his guide. I wasn’t aware of how close North Korea is to South Korea and it was mind-blowing that we were able to see the town of North Korea and the city of Gaesung from the Dora Tower so clearly. It was a great experience.

        Beautiful organized and cheap tour with a very competent guide!!
        The tour was great: Vincent was precise, clear and interesting to listen to. The tour was exactly how I expected it after I read the explanation and how he described while he was carrying us around. Details were impeccable starting from the clear communication, the van was new clean and comfortable and the equipment perfect. About the DMZ: getting so close to North Korea is (from my point of view) mindblowing. You get to know tremendous info, you walk inside the third tunnel NK dug years ago and you have the opportunity to watch from the observatory NK soil (that is only a couple of km away). Also Vincent included a beautiful bridge in the wild.. Money well spent!! Thank you Vincent for this journey!!

        Amazing DMZ tour!
        My recent visit to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) was an unforgettable experience, blending historical insight with an emotional journey through one of the most poignant areas in modern history. The tour provided a comprehensive overview of the Korean War's legacy and the ongoing tension between North and South Korea. Third Infiltration Tunnel gave me a firsthand look at the lengths to which North Korea went to infiltrate the South. The tunnel's history and the sheer scale of the effort were astonishing and sobering. In addition, the Dora Observatory From this vantage point, I had a clear view of North Korea. The stark contrast between the two Koreas was powerful, emphasizing the deep divide. The Suspension Bridge Tour is a fantastic adventure for nature lovers and thrill-seekers alike. It combines the excitement of walking a suspension bridge with a guided hike's tranquillity, making it a well-rounded outdoor experience. It is highly recommended!

        Outstanding DMZ tour
        I recently took this small group tour of the DMZ and the suspension bridge and i certainly didn't regret it. Vincent was a brilliant guide giving everyone great in depth information along the way. At every stop along the way we were all given free time to soak up the environment and the sights. For anyone travelling to South Korea and considering visiting the DMZ this tour is a truly excellent choice that i will be surely recommending to friends travelling to Seoul in future.

        Thorough and great tour!
        A fantastic tour. The group was kept small which made it so much greater, the vehicles used were all clean and they had good ventilation. Our guide, Vincent, spoke perfect English and he was extremely well informed of the whole area. An absolutely fantastic time. Would recommend!

        Top notch tour to the DMZ with knowledgeable tour guide Vincent!
        I wanted to share my feedback on the recent tour my family took to the DMZ. We had a fantastic experience and wanted to highlight a few things: Our Tour Guide Vincent, was incredibly knowledgeable and engaging throughout the tour. He made the experience informative and exciting. The itinerary was well-planned, and I appreciated the balance between sightseeing and free time to explore on our own. Thank you once again for a memorable tour! I would recommend this tour to anyone!

        Amazing tour guide and amazing day
        We had an absolutely amazing time and our tour guide Jake Kwon was WONDERFUL My sister and I rented hanbok and he fit it into our schedule so well and also gave us some information on the history of hanbok. We learned so so much on our tour due to his incredible knowledge on Korean history. We went to an amazing BBQ restaurant which I felt I should add. Jake was also so respectful and accommodating. He was so courteous of the locals especially in the Bukchon Hannok village, making sure other groups knew to be quiet. He even helped my dad down steps as my dad had just had knee replacement surgery. Jake also would look for shady areas and even would walk and get the van himself so we wouldn’t have to. This gave us more time to explore and kept us from getting too hot which we were so thankful for. I also wanted to add he was very nice when my brother (10) got sick and even offered to take him to the hospital while we did the cable cars (which was not necessary because he just had too much ice cream but was a very generous offer). I would SO recommend our tour guide Jake Kwon as well as the tour itself it was a must-see for Seoul visitors!!

        Beautiful sights
        Our tour was very lovely. We learned so much about the culture and traditions from the sea temple. We also really liked the sky capsule ride. Our tour guide, Kevin Anderson, knew the area very well and even suggested us a great coffee shop. He was great about being flexible when my family got tired and we all had a great time!!

        Worth every penny
        I recently took a small group tour to the DMZ with Vincent as our guide, and it was an outstanding experience. Vincent's extensive knowledge and balanced explanation of the Korea situation provided us with a deep understanding of the area's significance. His friendly demeanor and ability to make everyone feel comfortable, without being pushy or intrusive, made the tour even more enjoyable. Vincent's professionalism and thoughtful approach ensured that all our questions were answered, and we felt well-informed throughout the trip. I highly recommend Vincent's tour for anyone looking to explore the DMZ with a guide who truly enhances the experience.

      Our famiy of 3 had Vincent for the driver + guide for the day. Despite the 2 hour drive (each way) between Seoul and the ice festival. The ride was very comfortable - the mini van was new, clean and spacious.

      Hwacheon is in the regional area of Korea and therefore there were not as many people speaking English as in Seoul. Vincent made it all very easy for us in arranging the fishing experience and showing us around the festival. He was also of great assistance in arranging the fish to be cooked at the restaurant during lunch.

      The Ice Festival was a unique experience for us (from Australia) where such things don't really exist - fishing from a hole in ice, skating on a river etc. So it was a fun and comfortable day for myself, my wife and our 6 year old.

      We are a family of 7 people and we booked this tour through Viator. This is a great experience we had in Seoul so far. So much fun and the kids enjoyed it so much. Harry was a great guide, he showed us around Hwacheon and the Korean culture. This tour is a MUST when you travel to Seoul.
