Chris was an excellent tour guide! He was informative and gave good historical background. He tried to teach our kids with their short attention spans. I learned a lot and hopefully kids learned something!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Actually I tried to give kids a impression on Korean peninsula. Hopefully they had a meaningful time there. Thank you Chris

Destination too overwhelmed with tourists. More an amusement park than politically important site Guide was rude. Yelled instructions to people with other guides. Kept muttering complaints. Gave unsolicited political opinions. Made racial slurs against Japanese. He was all around obnoxious.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: 1. Nowadays DMZ here in Korea have been over crowded due to hot issues going on between North, Sout and US and furthermore it was Saturday morning, weekend. 2. Yes.... DMZ is also one of most favored tourist sites and also there is literally very small amusement park for kids. 3. I yelled Chinese tour guide whose group always late to tour bus 4. I explained about Korean peoples' sentiment toward Japanese people 5. complaints about your hotel Sorry for my being abnoxious.

Chris was very knowledgeable and willing to share his views on Korean and international politics as they relate to the situation at the DMZ. He was facile in addressing the information needs of the adults and child in our group. The logistics of the tour (needing to follow the set schedule at each stop without any flexibility due to transit by DMZ bus) make this half-day excursion from Seoul a difficult tour to lead. Chris's English language fluency is exceptional and nuanced.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Charles, I am grateful for your rating. Since every stops at DMZ is set by military authority it could be felt busy. Nevertheless I hope that this will be remembered as a worthwhile journey. Thank you Chris

Chris did a good job taking care of us on the DMZ tour and was very attentive to making sure we got good seats and everything was very well described and explained to us. This was one of our better tours. If there are admission fees to be paid by the participants, please make sure all parties understand who should be paying the admission fee for the tour guide.
