          Very Informative & Stress Free
          Harry did an amazing job showing me some beautiful highlights of Seoul! He gave helpful insight to the places that helped me understand their impact on Korea’s culture. If you want to see various spots in Seoul without having to worry about buying tickets and navigation this is a perfect tour!

          great trip to the DMZ zone
          Vincent was a great tour guide and driver. Everything was well organized and we had enough time to take plenty of photos. Weather was also great, so the view was excellent.

          excellent tour, really well organised and interesting. Vincent is a really knowledgeable guide and very helpful. 3rd tunnel is a particularly highlight and waterfall across the suspension bridge worth the extra walk.

          Great tour, excellent tour guide!
          Transportation for the tour was spot on. Vincent made contact prior and coordinated everything for pickup location and time, and was exactly on time. He even contacted us the day before to recommend to bring an umbrella due to the weather forecast. The tour guide, Joo, was excellent. She was extremely knowledgeable and was passionate about giving a good tour, and was able to answer all our questions. I could not recommend this tour and the tour guide more. This was the highlight of my trip to Korea!

          Do this tour!!
          Vincent, our tour guide, was everything that you would want your tour guide to be! I have been spreading the word to all the people going to Korea to do this tour and to ask for Vincent! The small group made it much more pleasant experience! Vincent was friendly (offered to take pictures), very knowledgeable (about Korean history and DMZ) and communicated all the details (few days before the tour). Highly strongly recommend

          Dmz tour and lunch
          The tour gives an insight into the history of north and south Korea. The 3rd tunnel and the viewing through binocular at the balcony were the highlights of the tour. Had a good lunch..and lastly thanks to our guide Oliver for guiding us throughout the tour ..it makes us at ease knowing it is not just the typical R&R tour and there are kids on board. Also thanks for the wonderful photos that Oliver offered to take for us.

          Great day out, a lot involved and good value for money. Vincent was the guide and spoke clear English and was easy to understand, caring, attentive and made the day varied and interesting, highly recommended.

          Great DMZ visit
          Vincent did a phenomenal job coordinating this tour, which can be challenging given the military history involvement. It was great day. We learned so much about South Korea and the Korean War. We are Korean food. We hiked in a beautiful mountainous park. Vincent ended the day by dropping us off at the Seoul night market. Definitely recommend this tour

          Don’t miss this DMZ tour!
          Wow- one of the best tours we took while in Korea. Vincent - our guide- was so interesting and informative. This tour covers a lot of territory- you do shuttle a bit due to regulations but it’s all very organized. Vincent does give just the right amount of history and background- but gives you time on your own for snacks etc. He is passionate about what he does and it shows. Do not hesitate!

          Book with Vincent and you will not be disappointed!
          Vincent was the most incredible guide you could ask for! From the communication prior to the trip, to being on time for a pick up as well as communicating the entire plan from the onset, and throughout the day was amazing. We were on time, educated and the personal stories that he shared warmed my heart. If you are looking for a tour, book with Vincent, and you will not be disappointed. With love from Canada.

          A wonderful tour
          This tour was worth every penny. Although we can no longer visit the JSA, the sights that we hit were worth it. Vincent was great!! He gave a lot of historical information behind the DMZ and was very easy to converse with along the way. He was always willing to take photos without being too intrusive, and made sure that the solo travelers were included. Because I don’t speak much Korean and his English-speaking skills are very good, we were able to ask a lot of questions and that was a very valuable aspect of the tour. The tour itself is worth it, and Vincent was a great guide to have. Also, our daughter left her mobile phone in his van and he was so helpful in getting it back to us!!

          Very interesting and informative tour
          This small group tour of the DMZ is the way to go. The times we stopped at each location was very timely and avoided the crowded big tour buses so we had more space and it was more empty when visiting the locations. Our favourite part was using the little tram going down to the tunnels very interesting and crazy how you’re able to see through a hole from a far that is only 170 m to North Korea. Our tour guide Vincent was very knowledgable and now we understand why tours to North Korea can’t go through South Korea due to many mines in the ground between the border and it’s dangerous. He really help us understand the history of the DMZ and just so sad how they’re the same people with the same language, but completely different circumstances. We highly recommend taking this tour, especially the small group tour.

        Transportation was great, tour group was only for we two (nice as it became a “private” tour), pick up punctuality was perfect.
        The itinerary was not followed, since the first stop we asked for the order of the itinerary since the first stop was different as what’s advertised, driver mentioned that not all the stops listed were to be completed because that’s not the instructions he got from his company, therefore not all the stops listed in description were visited, driver said that in the time allocated (11hrs) was not feasible.
        Driver had presented himself as a certified tour guide, unfortunately explanations were few, very short, limited and vague due to poor English language skills.
        Driver yawned a lot while driving.
        We end up calling what destination stop to go next instead of getting that from an expert to make the most of our time.
        Driver proposed to drive us back to the drop spot earlier vs. the itinerary, we had insisted to walk around the village listed in itinerary and used the rest of the time to have dinner at that village, that’s the reason we had completed the 11 hrs duration of the tour (as described in the expectations of the tour listed), if it were for the driver recommendation we were to finish 2 hrs earlier.

        Guided by our knowledgeable and attentive guide, Mimi, our group of 9 spent 4 hours touring UNESCO city of Gyeongju. While we enjoyed weaving in and out through the lanes of Yangdong Traditional Village and stepping into the homes, Mimi provided interesting commentary. After that, we visited the impressive tomb park, Donggung & Wolji and a bridge. These ancient relics provided a rare glimpse into the royal life in the Silla dynasty. Our group, aged 4 to 70, were impressed with the cultural heritage of the korean people. We wished we had allocated more time in Gyeongju! Definitely not to be missed on your tour of South Korea!

        One of my favorite tours ever in Korea. Our guide, Mr. Goh Dong Min, is simply the best. He took us to Seokguram Grotto, Bulguksa Temple, Woljeonggyo bridge, Daereungwon, and a brief tour of the National museum. He is super knowledgeable in the history of the region and the Korean culture, being a local of Gyeongju and having a degree in tourism. He was patience with us and I learned so much from him and got to love Korea more because of this tour. He also took us to the most delicious restaurant for Korean Hanwoo (Korean beef) barbecue. It was the perfect way to try it for the first time in Korea and what a meal it was! The fall colors and the temple areas were stunning and our guide simply knows how to take great photos and which spots are best for pictures and autumn colors. Thank you very much, Mr. Goh Dong Min—we had the best time of our lives. This is truly an unforgettable and once in a lifetime experience! Don’t wait, just book this outstanding tour.

        We had a fantastic tour by our guide Sang. He made an itinerary which included everything we wanted to see and more. Sang answered all of our questions (there were a lot!) and he was so knowledgeable and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. We also got to try some Korean food during the tour and some makgioli. If you get a chance to have Sang as your guide you won't regret it and are in for a great day out.

        It was a great tour, Gyeongju was a great city to visit.
        Our tour guide Mimi, was amazing from the moment she picked us from our hotel to every step of the visit and really tried to make the best trip possible for us. She spoke very well English and was very knowledgeable.
        Highly recommend if you wish to fully understand the Shilla period.

        Awesome experience of the history of the Silla Kingdom and Buddhism in Korea. Our private driver and guide, Dongkim Goh was very well informed and professional. We were well looked after. Lunch at local Korean restaurant followed by a great local coffee was nice.

        A fully packed tour with lots of beautiful sites. Our guides Jay and David kept us going to a timely schedule with lots of time for taking photos, lunch and toilet breaks. We had an added bonus visit to see Muhly grass! David is a photographer and shared tips on where to take the best shots! They also shared recommended places for lunch which was much appreciated! I truly recommend this tour!

        Absolutely amazing! We had Mr. Dongmin Goh. I would highly suggest you request him. He was immensely knowledgeable. More importantly though, he was personable and filled with passion. You can tell that he loves what he does and strives to give his clients much more than a day of simple sight seeing but a visceral experience.

        We had a great time on a one-day tour of Gyeongju, but wished we had stayed overnight so we could cover more places over 2 days. Our guide Ms Han was knowledgeable, kind and very well versed in English. We went around in a 7 seater. Some parts of the trip r flexible so you may discuss more on how to customise better. Would certainly recommend the Silla tombs area as well as Seokguram. If we had more time would go to Anapji pond as well, and perhaps good to start off with a visit to the Gyeongju National Museum (not in package) to give a better context.
