It was great expirience. BJ, our guide, has plenty of knowledge about DMZ and korean national and millitary history. We have visited many places including korean war memorial and dmz. We have seen north korea territory, and fence where north korea infiltration commando came to south korea. We've also had great lunch, where we first time ate barbecue duck way koreans do. Thank you BJ.
This was such an awesome experience. Shrek was amazing, extremely knowledgable, and really went above and beyond as a tour guide! It felt like we were on an adventure with an old friend--such was the degree of comfort, relaxation and enjoyment. We got to see a lot of exclusive things and learn so much about Korea and its culture on a personal level. Shrek even made sure that we got to our flight on time and was simply incredible the whole way through. When visiting any country, it's so rewarding to learn about their history as well, so every penny was worth the experience we got from this tour. We even took home a business card to recommend this to our friends in Australia!
This experience was great! BJ was the best guide ever. He know so many things and he knew how to make our trip wonderfull!
My 11 year old son and I had such a great time learning about the DMZ and this invasion route. It was due to our amazing guide B.J. who was not only a gracious host, but also so well informed. He made the experience fun and meaningful, and we even learned about other aspects of Korean life and history. It was even better than I had expected, and would highly recommend this to everyone!
One day before the tour started I got an email that it was cancelled because of military operations. I was disappointed and asked if there was any option to get another tour and what I got was awesome! Shrek the guide took me to several unique places and told me so much about Korean history. Because he served in the US army he knew many details about the todays defense tactics which was highly interesting. Shrek, thank you again for this tour! Anyone else: Go for it!
This trip was so amazing, but most memorial part of it is our tour guide, BJ. If you need a knowledgeable safe drive, considerate, then you should request to have him as your tour guide. Beside, the lunch was so good too.
The pick up was on time. The driver had my name on an iPad screen so we found each other easily. We picked up a group from another hotel. They had left the same conference as I did so we made friends easily. The guide, Brian was friendly and so everyone was comfortable early on. The War Memorial was amazing. Wish I had more time there. We had to leave Seoul early to get to the several stops along the DMZ. We visited a look out to see a North Korean village, had a duck lunch at a South Korean village diner. It may have been odd if I didn't feel comfortable with the rest of the group as it was a self serve family style meal. We went to a military outpost and had an insightful interaction with a young training officer who explained the day to day operations guarding a section of border. We finally visited an area where the North Korean commandos entered to try to assassinate the South Korean leader. The last bit was a bit staged. This tour does not actually enter tunnels, but that should be obvious from the preview when you book. Great day and good value for money.
We loved t. Shrek was great and we learned so much about the Korean war and post war events.
I had a very good tour. My tour guide was knowledgeable and spoke English well.
Lee is extremely knowledgeable and organises a full day a little bit outside what the typical tourists would do. We had the pleasure to be able to speak to a soldier which was very interesting. Lee also speaks very good English which is a clear plus. We had a fabulous time! And I would definitely recommend the tour. It is worth every penny of it.
When I took the tour, I happened to be the only one signed up for that particular day. Regardless, Shrek showed up early, picked me up from my hostel, and gave and excellent tour. It is a very personal tour, Shrek is extremely knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions. For my particular time in Korea, the JSA was closed to tourists and I was a bit worried I wouldn't get the full experience, but on this tour we were still able to enter the DMZ, speak to soldiers, and see the actual routes used by North Korean spys. To top it all off, the lunch was authentic Korean BBQ at a local place and not touristy at all. I highly recommend this tour.

Personalized service. Great tour guides. Organized
Disappointing. This is advertised as a DMZ tour and yet you never go to the DMZ. Also, our guide did not have a good command of English. We were disappointed.
DMZ tour without going to JSA is nothing but an eye wash. In summary a complete waste of full day without having The feeling that everybody talks about. We were promised JSA but mid way were told that the military has closed that day and tour will not be possible. A big disappointment for somebody who is there once in a lifetime
