Paju DMZ & Peace park tour

Seoul
9 hours

Friendly and Knowledgeable Guide and Excellent Driver!

We booked a custom DMZ tour with Hans. I was very specific and detailed about the sites we wanted to see, which I recommend. Hans was incredibly kind and accommodating. He picked our group up at 2 different hotels and told us about the history of sites in Seoul as he drove through the city. His English is great, of course. He is very knowledgeable about the history of the city as well as the philosophy, which was wonderful to learn about. As we drove to Paju I was very pleased (and relieved after all of the taxi rides we'd had in Seoul) that he is a fantastic driver, we felt very safe and he drove very smoothly and not too fast or jerky. The van is large and can comfortably accommodate 9 passengers, I believe. Unfortunately one of the main tours we wanted to visit was not available which was very disappointing but he was very understanding about adjusting our tour which I appreciate very much. We continued on the tour and had a nice meal and visited several other sites. He was so kind to our children and very patient with the pace of the tour and stopping for bathroom and snack breaks. It was very hot!! Overall it was a lovely tour and I would definitely recommend Hans as a tour guide. He also does hiking and biking tours, which seems very unique, especially since Korea is quite different than the US when it comes to camping accommodations.

Thank you so much on your great review and I am happy to hear that you and your kids are enjoyed my tour, I just tried to do small things for your groups as I love all Koreans.. Thanks again.

7 days in Seoul and the surrounding areas with a family of 6

At first we think 7 days might be a little bit long to stay in Seoul and the nearby areas, but Hans suggested an itinerary which turns out to be perfect. All my family members enjoyed the whole period of stay and the touring/hiking/activities. Hans is excellent in guiding us around, and he showed us both good places and good food. Have no reservation to recommend Hans to anyone who is looking for an experienced and attending guide.

Paju DMZ & Peace park tour

Paju is the nearest place where tourists can see the north Korea land crossed the border, drawn on 38th degree of north latitude right after the World War 2. After crossing the Southern Limit Line, we reach to the DMZ where is Dora Observatory and 3rd Infiltration tunnel built by north Korea. Sure you can definitely feel some scary but it is the most peaceful place in the world. Since we completed the DMZ tour run by the Paju city, then move to vicinity like Majang lake or Royal tomb.
