Seoul Customized Tour for Cruise

Are you traveling on cruise?

If so you will have a very short time to travel. What you can do is very limited within short time. So hiring private tour guide is the best way to enjoy your tour.
Let's look at the brief characters of a city and then you can decide your destination(=choice).

Seoul is boasting its "Harmony of tradition(1392~1910) and modernity".

Incheon is the "Opening Port of Korea to the western countries in 19th century and Free Economic Zone(IFEZ) today".

Paju is the evidence of the last "Cold War" with DMZ(DeMilitarized Zone).

♡ During DMZ tour, we have to join another group because the DMZ is military area.

♡ For DMZ, you have to have 7 ~ 8 hours from Pickup to Drop-off
(or longer on peak-season. Please check with me).

♡ DMZ can be closed without notice, Because of security reason, fire, conflict, protection from virus or similar reason.

Bring along all your passports.

All my tours can be customized by your request.



Bring along all your original passports for DMZ or a few entrance discount.
Itinerary is subject to cruise schedule.

Here are choices, please tell me your choice when you book.

A Recent Review of this tour

Likeable, reliable, knowledgeable. Excellent Tour. Outstanding service. Kevin was very helpful with small details. The DMZ Tour is highly recommended, especially for people and families who take Western Freedoms for granted. Honest, up front. You get your money's worth and more. The best tour out of a 12 Day Far East Cruise. Thanks again Kevin, Spot ON!!!
