          Perfect for our 11 hour layover at Incheon.
          Moonhat did a splendid job for us. We wanted to visit a few places off the normal tourist path and he customized our tour perfectly for our preferences. The drives to and from Seoul were informative and comfortable. Would recommend highly.

          Great Layover day tour in Seoul
          Mr. Song, our guide was a great guide for the day. My wife and I found him to be professional, courteous, intelligent and full of valuable information on Korea - it's history and culture. He was on time, responded to my inquiries promptly via What's App and has a large, clean, comfortable mini-van for transport. As an example of his service, I didn't realize that I had lost my selfie stick until I was unpacking in the US and he tracked it down to the restaurant we had lunch at and offered to mail it back. If you have a day long layover in Seoul, definitely worth getting Mr. Song to take you out to see the Palace, local markets and sample Korean food.

          Interesting and worth a visit
          Our tour guide Mr. Song was amazing. He was very knowledgeable about all things history. We start out our day with a one hour drive to the DMZ. On this drive he told us about the history of the Korean War and how the US got involved. He also pointed out various landmarks along the drive. Once we arrived he arranged our tickets and joined us on the shuttle bus. Since this is an active military site movement is restricted and monitored. Through each step of the way he explained what we were looking at and the significance behind it. Yes, the DMZ is a commercialized tourist destination with everything from restaurants and coffee shops to souvenir shops, soybean ice cream, and an amusement park, but it is also full of history. It’s a place that is fascinating and heartbreaking, while also sending a message of hope and kindness.

          Please , don''t waste your time
          To be quite honest, don't waste your time. If you must go just take a cheap bus tour. We did a private tour and once we got to the DMZ zone we joined the group that took the bus. I would class it as marketed, hyped up rubbish just for the tourists. If you go you'll see what I mean.

          Great Seoul Tour with Moonhak Song
          We had a wonderful 2 day tour in Seoul with Moonhak Song of Joy Tour Korea. He spoke perfect English, was a wonderful driver, shared lots of history and local knowledge about the area and sites we visited and really listened when we shared our interests. The next day he had looked up different shopping, Korean BBQ spots, etc. and took us there. He was a really nice, fun, interesting guide and we highly recommend this experience.

          Excellent Day Tour
          The tour of the Gyeonbokgung palace was the highlight of our layover tour. We also had our best tour guide, Song of Joy Tour Korea who was very accommodating and knowledgeable of the history. He was very pleasant to be with and we are so happy to have him as our tour guide.

          Seoul Tour
          The best part was the tour of Sejong the Great's palaces and grounds. The guide was very knowledgeable.

          Korean folk village and MBC stars
          Our guide Moonhak Song was excellent. He guided us half way thru the parks and then left us to explore on our own. The van was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our tour.

          Unforgettable dat
          Very good experience with a very good driver! Song is kindly and speaks English very well. The MBC Park is an incredible place to visit if you are a fan of Korean dramas! The Korean Folk Village is a very interresting place too. The stops were a bit short but it’s normal because the daily program was dense. We recommand it! Thank you Song for this unforgettable day!

          Awesome and attentive guide
          The tour was exactly as we expected. The tour guide was attentive to our needs. We never felt rushed during the trip. The tour covered all the attractions and we were provided details of what to expect. Highly recommended!

          Knowledgeable and efficient guide
          The guide was super knowledgeable and friendly. I wasn’t looking forward to a long layover and I really got to have a good feel for the country. Next time I have a long layover I’m gonna arrange another one of these trips.

          Convenient and Efficient One-Day Tour
          JK did a great job baring his Seoul (see what I did there) to us in short period of time. From the Gyeongbokgung Palace to Namdaemun Market we got a convenient and efficient view of Seoul. I also can’t forget the great lunch recommendation, outstanding.

          Layover DMZ
          JK was early and found us in the airport. He has a very clear understanding of his country and heritage. Highly recommend him!
