The All New DMZ Tour

Tour

No matter what any other tour agency will tell you, the DMZ is currently closed. So we've discovered an alternate course off the beaten path for people who really want to see the DMZ. It's definitely becoming more and more one of the hottest places to see in Korea. It's been in hot demand ever since presidential summits taking place there. But since the JSA area is shut down there for renovation (or was that reunification?), we are introducing new place to see in replacement of that. The DMZ is always a fascinating place to see as it consistently transforms itself as a symbol of the Korean War to a beacon for peace and hope. The DMZ, or the Demilitarized Zone is a 247 KM border that divides the Korean peninsula into North and South Korea. That being said, where one section of the DMZ closes, another part is open for viewing into North Korea. We will trek all along the DMZ until we find an opening, so doing the tour one day could be totally different from then next. We will try to start out by going through the Military Checkpoint and go up to the Dorasan Observatory to look into the city of Kaesong in North Korea. It is also the ancient capital of Korea during the Goryeo Dynasty from 918AD to 1392AD. We will also go underneath the DMZ through a tunnel that was dug up by the North Koreans during the height of the tensions. It would have been used to plot another surprise attack on the South Korean had it not been told to us by a North Korean defector. When we discovered them, the North Koreans retreated and painted the walls black, saying they were looking for coal. The new additions to the tour in lieu of JSA are the trekking course up Gamak Mountain to see a view over a suspension bridge and take a ride on a traditional Korean boat called a Hangpo. This boat takes us along the Imjingak River which flows from North Korea and out into the Yellow Sea. Again, itinerary is subject to change due to actions taking place on the ground and with the UN. Should JSA open up, you will be sure that will be the first place we try.

Hiking Mt. Seorak with a Sherpa

Tour

Are you sick of package trip just for taking pictures? In a day, more than hundreds of tourists visit Mt.Seorak but they cannot experience real hiking because the tour program only is organized for taking a walk a little bit and taking pictures. I feel sorry about that because you should hike to see & experince real beauty of Mt.Seorak. That's why I want to open this tour. I worked near Mt.seorak before, so I know about the courses well and I also can customize whichever courses you want to hike. (Normally, we will hike Ulsanbawi Rock course which is representative place of Mt.Seorak.) As I mentioned before, I am ski instructor & tour guide, so I am good at managing outdoor activities and certified in first aid. I will pick you up at Seoul, drive you to Mt.Seorak, hike together and drive you back to Seoul. ( Literally, we may say it is A to Z tour.) Be more active! Get more special experience!

First of all, I have to say travelling has been always my passion. I has really enjoyed travelling by my car to tourist attractions or a cousine tour all over the country not only during weekends but also whenever I got vacations or even only one day-off. To make my dream come true that is to make travelling my profession, I studied and got the International tour guide license certified by Korean government in December 2017. I worked for JP Morgan Chase Investment Banking Corp Seoul Branch for 24 years, a Native English Teacher Recruiting Company for two years and representative Korean Buddhist temples for four years. And now I would like to start the second page of my life as I wanted for a long time. As I travelled so many years alone or with my international friends who had been known from my previous work before having the licence, now I assure that you will be my pleasure to show you the beauty of Morning Calm country my motherland Korea. It is really challenging to be a private tour guide for international visitors. I have been escorting many international visitors more than 4,000 people from various foreign countries to Korean temples and hermitages and conducted meditation in the forest of the temples for several years during the templestay. In addition, I made unforgettable memories during the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. I escorted and interpreted a Minister of Science from Canada Ms. Kirsty Duncan who is a genuine born lovely lady at the same time very intelligent. You can see her beautiful smile from the photo gallery. I supported her and the SportsCanada team about 40 days during the Olympic games and Paralyimpics. I met many wonderful sports stars and medalists of Olympics and it was very honorable having time with them as I had just started to work in the tourism industries as an English Tour guide. Since then, I could perform not only many important tour events but also assume an important role as an interpreter at variety of Governmental exhibition or business meetings. I am now enjoying the second page of my life with many international peoples who want to explore Korean culture and history by visiting Korea tourist attractions. I will arrange your journey most exciting and refreshing. And I will also try to help you to find true yourself at the end of your trip by making empty your busy mind at the most serene beautiful place in Korea.

After my long travels, I still like to meet travelers and foreigners, and I loved to cook Korean food for my foreign friends when I was traveling.

I will teach you how to make and prepare traditional Korean food. Monday, Wednesday & Friday Heamul pajeon - Seafood pancake with spring onion. Bibimbab - Mixed rice what is one of the traditional and famous Korean food. Bukumi - Korean crepes with nuts (for dessert). Tuesday & Saturday Japche - sweet and savory dish of stir-fried glass noodles and vegetables. Jeyuk bokeum - Spicy stir-fried pork and vegetables. Bukumi - Korean crepes with nuts (for dessert). Thursday & Sunday Kimchi jeon - Kimchi pancake Bulgogi - stir-fried beef with soy sauce Bukumi - Korean crepes with nuts (for dessert). Hope after you joined my experience, more interested in Korean cooking and Korean culture :) We'll begin with a visit to a local market that's not known by many tourists. We'll look at the Korean ingredients and buy vegetables, and we'll walk around so you can see what the locals buy and sell in the market. After this, we'll visit a traditional Korean house and you'll learn to cook three kinds of genuine Korean foods and to make Kimchi.( after class you will bring a small package of Kimchi what you made)

Hi everyone! I am the founder and Chief Executive Tour Guide here at KTG.

My one true love is still guiding travelers in and around Korea and showing them the beauty and culture here and I'll do that every once in a while when I have the time. I love showing people the things to do in Seoul and the rest of South Korea. Some of my favorite tours to do are tours in Busan and tours in Jeju Island. But I do have a talented group of tour guides that I've hand picked myself from working with them over the years. So any one of us can show you a great time here in the Land of Kpop, Samsung and the Morning Calm.

Andrew Chung

Guide

Hi, I'm Andrew Chung, a private driving guide in Korea! I've guided travelers from all over the world for many years. I have strong passion about showing around my amazing motherland to the world. What would you like to do in Korea? Where would you like to go? Gangnam Street? Grand Palaces? Traditional houses? Or mountains and seaside? Rice wine pub? You name it. We'll be right there. I like to explore Korea's local hidden gems and I can confidently say that I know Korea's inside and out. I've been a member of a mountain climbing club, driving club (Grand-Starex Club), and a hiking club for several years. I love to discover less known places that have great food and know many places that only native Koreans go. The real 'it' places are not in the guidebook if you know what I mean! Also, I have an in-depth knowledge about the Asian philosophy which deeply influenced Korea in ancient times. So I have many interesting stories to share, that are behind certain paintings and architecture. Locations of palaces or temples were selected based on the Asian philosophy and most of paintings on the architectures are all symbolic. For example, you will be intrigued to hear what symbolic significance the number of dragon's fingers on the ceiling of a palace. I will carefully match your interest with what Korea has to offer. Also, I'll suggest most time-efficient tour schedule, but will be also flexible enough to change it to accommodate your needs in the course of the tour. I hope you have the best time in Korea and make great memories to take home with and let me make that happen for you!

Soo Jung Pak

Guide

Hi, my name is Soo Jung. I was born and raised in the U.S. I moved to Korea almost 5 years ago. My background and career was actually in Counseling Psychology, but I moved here to fulfill a call on my life. Prior to moving, I had only visited Korea twice, so I wasn't familiar with the city or country for that matter. I had experienced some culture shock as I adjusted to life here. It was through my own personal exploration of the city that my heart really grew for Seoul, and I just gained such an appreciation of all the conveniences and uniqueness the city has to offer. I challenged myself to go to different parts of the city and not to just settle with going back and forth just to work. or places near my home. Not knowing how long I would be here, I wanted to make the most of it. Life here can be very busy, fast paced, stressful at times and brings constant changes with people and things that come and go. I found healing and joy in enjoying the different things; like nature, which Koreans do a very good job of maintaining and cultivating. I also found that I just loved being in beautiful surroundings which would uplift my spirits. There's so much to see and do here- from sporting events, K-pop, musueums/arts/culture, Unesco sites, trendy and theme-specific cafes, delicious foods, nature, botanical gardens, lovely parks; some even with sculptures. I would love to share the places that bring me much joy. I believe I have a good balance of being both ethnically Korean, and also a "foreigner," and I have insights that will help others to adjust to and help while you visit here. Even though tourism is a new field for me, I have had the privilege to have the flexibility to see and do many things that most of my Korean friends have not, because of their busy work schedules. All of my friends rely on me to plan outings and even take their out of town guests to places that I've taken them to.
