    DMZ Experience with GOGO
    Today me and my family visited the DMZ. This is a must do when you are in Seoul. The tour was exhausting and interesting but our tour Guide GOGO kept the whole group motivated and entertained. He is the best guide I've ever been with. He took his time so everyone in the group won't miss out any information. He played with the children in our group and made them enjoy this trip. He also made sure that everyone in the group got good photos. Thanks a lot <3 team GOGO Let's Go Go the German family

    Great day of learning on the DMZ tour
    A wonderfully informative trip to the DMZ! Our guide Crystal was super friendly and full of knowledge, and it was great to learn more about the history and ongoing issues. It’s a shame that the JMA is no longer able to be visited, but the tunnel and observatory area were still worthwhile.

    Amusing tour with a sweet personal touch
    My brother booked the tour and it was really fun. Lina is an awesomesauce tour guide!! She has a good sense of humour, very knowledgeable, with a sweet and warm composure. What I liked about her approach was the way she also shared her personal stories about her family related to the DMZ and the Cold War im Korea. It added a special touch to the day. She’s also very good at explaining and making sure everyone understands the important points to remember. I would do another activity with her as my tour guide!! 😊

Our guide was knowledgeable and very pleasant and getting to the DMZ was a once in a lifetime experience. However, the whole trip was compromised when VIP Travel chose to wait for one customer who was over 20 minutes late. This prevented our guide from getting our whole group tickets together and worse caused us to have to hurry at every stop we made. Further frustrating us was the fact that we received no less than 3 messages from VIP Travel instructing us that the we needed to be at the departure point early because we were leaving at 6:20 sharp. We left at close to 6:45 and never recovered.
I would recommend the trip to the DMZ but don’t go with VIP Travel.

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed this DMZ tour. It was all very engaging, interesting and insightful.

Our tour guide named Cool was amazing. He was entertaining, warm, communicated well and spoke great English. His anecdotes and stories as well as his deep knowledge about history and broader context really added to the experience at each of the 4 stops.

The tour itself was very worthwhile and I would recommend it to anyone who travels to Seoul!

We left at 7:20am and arrived back in Seoul at 2:00pm - however, the tour itself did not feel rushed. We had the perfect amount of time at each stop and got back to the city in great time - talk about efficiency!

We were unable to go to the DMZ due to it being closed. However, we were given a great alternate tour of Imjingak Park, Mt. Odu Unification Observatory, and the War Memorial Museum. Our guide was super knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful regarding our plans after the tour. While we were disappointed that the DMZ was closed, I feel like the tour company did their best to ensure we still got our money's worth.

Was a very good tour. We were team Nancy and she is awesome. A few tips: be on time where you are supposed to be picked up. They can’t wait for you. Second must bring your passport, as easy as that sounds, some ppl won’t remember.

We visited in the cold weather, and it was very cold day but the sun came out and we were able to see everything. So if visiting in the cold bring HNs warmers or buy them there.

You might not have time to eat before getting picked up so have some snacks. The place where she gets the tickets have food.

Overall a must do! Awesome day.

Moon led us very well as a guide. She was enthusiastic about sharing the history and I learned from her. Just as important, she ensured that we were the first tour bus to reach the different destinations, allowing us to have a full experience before the crowd gathers. Big thanks and all the best to Moon!

We booked the 1/2 day DMZ tour, which was cancelled the first day because of the North Korea Drone provocation. However, VIP was extremely accommodating and was able to rebook us as soon as the DMZ reopened.

Our tour guide, “COOL” was phenomenal. He met us bright and early (5am) so we could beat other tours and get a shuttle to the DMZ. He was very knowledgeable and provided excellent historical information. He got us on the 9:40 shuttle. We did have some time to wait around, but he did a good job of giving free time for breakfast and then time to buy North Korean money at the shuttle area.

I was stupid and forgot my passport, but he saved the day and was able to get me approved to go into the DMZ. Thank you so much! This was the one thing I really wanted to see during my trip!

This company is just wonderful!!!

For a fan of history like me, this tour was more than I wished for. Our guide, Moon, was truly the star 🌟! She was very engaging, told great stories about the DMZ and infiltration tunnels, and took her time to answer questions and even take great pictures along the way. 10/10 tour and must-see if you are in Seoul.

Team Nancy all the way!!! My family and I did the DMZ tour. She was the most fantastic, organized and friendly tour guide we have ever experienced. She is very knowledgeable and clear with instructions. We felt safe and well informed the entire time. She went above and beyond with taking our pictures and she even told us the inside scoop of the best souvenirs available, but did not pressure anyone to buy anything. We had so much fun and learned so much! I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Enjoyed the tour as Sunny shared many stories about the DMZ and the relations between north and South Korea beyond just what you can see in the exhibits. She also takes effort to show us what we can see from Dora Observatory and ensure that we have a good time. My mother isn’t a history buff, but she enjoyed the tour too! Would have liked to have a bit more time to look around the exhibitions, but overall still satisfied with the tour.
