What people are saying about Seoul

Since the DMZ was closed due to the African Swine Flu, we did the alternative itinerary. Despite being the “next best thing”, I found it to be very informative and our guide, Yura, was very knowledgeable. I learned quite a bit about the history of the Korean War and the current sentiment of the Korean people. The highlight was being able to see and observe North Korea from the Ganghwa Peace Observatory. I can only image what the original tour would have been like and be at the actual DMZ but I was still satisfied with this half day experience. My only feedback would be that the bus could have come with a sound system and microphone for the tour guide. Yura did her best and did ask if she needed to speak up but there were times when the bus was moving that the engine made it difficult to hear. Otherwise, I’d recommend this tour for anyone wanting to learn more about the DMZ.

Although the DMZ is officially closed at the moment due to swine flu, we visited a few other sites nearby which really helped convey the history and the current situation, whilst the final stop at the Peace Observatory gave hope for unification in the future. The guide was brilliant and gave lots of information and was very approachable if we had any other questions.

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.

We had a great experience with Shawn, he is very knowledgeable on Korean history and provides an in-depth and fun experience. Loved all the stories and history. Highly recommend. If you can go at the start of your trip, he makes excellent recommendations for things to do whilst in Seoul.

We enjoyed the tour. It was interesting to hear more about the history. Sophie is a very nice excellent guide who made our morning very pleasant.
