      Highlight of our trip? Probably
      This was one of things I wanted to do the most coming to South Korea, and I was not disappointed. Honestly, it was probably a little too hot, so definitely make sure to bring a fan or wear a heat if you're going on a warm day, but it was still a lot of fun. The guide, Joey, was very knowledgeable and beyond nice. I really feel like she went above and beyond for us, and she made the trip so worthwhile. Not to mention she had a great sense of humour and took some really nice photos for us. I definitely recommend her for anyone who's going.

      DMZ Tour - History - Excellent!
      The best experience I had in South Korea! DMZ tour was very interesting - especially with Joey as the tour guide! Very knowledgeable - very eloquent in presenting Korean history during the tour! Very tiring also considering you will need to walk steep slopes but very worth it!

    I 100% recommend this, having traveled the world I have rarely seen a guide as enthusiastic as Julie ( the one we had). She made sure we understand everything and took joy in teaching us with a little bit of humor. Great Experience

    If you get a tour with Julie Park you're blessed beyond comprehension. She's dedicated and explained the day's schedule very clearly.
    She sets clear briefing of the site before we get off the bus, stressing the safety and procedures for the site. If there's one suggestion I can give to Julie to improve her tour guiding, it's to also take care of yourself as much as taking care of your guests

    Our experience was very good, we met really cool people from other countries with whom we were able to exchange experiences. we visited beautiful places like the suspension bridge with a wonderful view. Our guide, Julie, was very kind and attentive throughout the tour and shared stories and information about the points we visited and we were able to learn a little more about the war between the two Koreas and also the sad situation of the people who live above. an incredible and memorable tour.

    This tour has given me unforgettable memories. I went with my friend from Australia, and I was deeply moved by this experience, even though I live in Korea. In particular, Guide Moon Young's explanations about Korean history and her stories of visiting Mt. Kumkang added sincerity and value to the tour. The highlight of the tour for me was the 3rd Tunnel. Although it is definitely an unpleasant place, walking through the tunnel made me contemplate not only the difficult relationship between the two Koreas but also the significance of their connection. I felt that North Korea was much closer than I had previously thought.

    At the Dora Observatory, it wasn't easy to locate the spots I had heard about from the guide, but Moon Young kindly assisted us in finding the places we wanted to see. In addition to these meaningful locations, the cafes and restaurants were also excellent, and I particularly enjoyed the soybean ice cream. ^^ This tour is very well organized, and Guide Moon Young is highly professional.

    Truthfully this was one of the most fun lil tours I had in a while! It was jam packed with. Bunch of activities and history. It was pretty interesting to hear more about the history behind the two koreas and a bit about Japan as well. I think that it is a great tour if you wanted to learn truly about the country’s history. I think the person that made it the best was our tour guide Julie however! I don’t know what it was, but she made us feel so welcome and was excited to teach us about the history of our country. On top of that she made us feel so welcome and like we had a true friend in Seoul! She was a great tour guide and an even better person! Thank you Julie!! 사랑해요 🫶

    A must do tour when you want to know and understand more about the coming about and the situation nowadays between the two Korea’s, with the icing on the cake a glimpse of N-Korea. But what truly made our tour unique, was our tour guide Julie. Without her outstanding knowledge, sparkling energy, enthusiasm, funniness and wittiness, and personal attention for everybody, this tour wouldn’t be the same. 5 stars, or as we say in Europe: douze points. Thank you Julie!

    We highly recommend this tour and you wouldn't go wrong if you get Julie as your guide! She speaks perfect English and is very humorous and helpful. We learnt about the history of the Japanese occupation of Korea and the Korean War. I was touched and in tears even when hearing the light version of it. The third tunnel wasn't as hard as I thought (from reading previous reviews). I had the wrong impression that we are going down steps but this is not true.
    We were basically going down a slope. It was about 350m long and it could be a bit hard on the knees. I hurt my knees the day before and could still manage it. You just have to take it slowly and not rush through it. Going back up will probably be harder for some but again, it was a gentle slope (incline is 11) that one just have to take it slowly. Manjang lake was beautiful and we really enjoy the walk there. We had enough time for each location and didn't feel rush at all. Once again, we just want to thank our guide Julie for making the tour such an enjoyable experience. We hope to see you in the future should we join any of the tours.

    This was a very well organised comprehensive tour for everyone.
    Firstly, I visited beautiful and peaceful Imjingak. I was almost crying when Moon young explained about North and South korea's history. Afterwards, I went to the amazing, and curious DMZ.

    Exploring the third tunnel to wear helmet is not to be missed. It could be once in a life time experience. I won't forget it.

    Last stop was Dora observatory.
    I saw North korea's buildings, fields, statute, etc through the telescope. It was a little bit hard to find them. Tour guide Moon young just approached me and told me how to find them easily. 
    She was very helpful and was willing to help all tour team members.

    Delicious Soybean Vegan ice cream was a bonus:)

    It was a truly unforgettable experience!!!!

    It was very informative and helpful. The guide was very respectful, articulate and personable. It’s good to hear how the guide presented the information as her nation’s story. It made the presentation very relatable! We had a great experience! The tour is definitely a highlight for our trip! (We are going on a five week tour through Asia at the moment).
