So very cool to be able to see North Korea from afar lol. The tour was well organized. Done on time too.
The tour guide was excellent. Picked up on time at my hotel. Very informative tour of the DMZ
The comfort of the motor coach was wonderful. Went on a Sunday so less traffic. You must bring your passport.
Love the tour! It was very informative and exciting to see the border which I have heard so much in the news!
An excellent, interesting, and informative day. It's not often that you get to go somewhere as unique and daunting as the DMZ so the experience would have been good regardless, but the vast knowledge of the tour guides really help give a better perspective on the history and current situation. I would definitely recommend this one for anyone visiting South Korea.
A great tour. The guide was really informative and helpful. It was lucky that it was a nice clear day so we could see quite clearly from the observatory. The walk into the 3rd infiltration tunnel was great, it was quite a walk but it was nice to stretch the legs after the bus ride. Time spent at each stop was relatively short but definitely enough time to take all the photos you want and to take in the sights. A morning well spent.
Very Interesting. The highlight of the tour was the JSA. Would recommend this trip to anyone travelling to Seoul, a must see.
Fascinating tour, tour guides were friendly and informative. The JSA part of the tour is definitely worth paying extra to see, to be on the border is quite a thrilling experience. We didn't get to see Bridge of No Return as it was off limits that day, which is fine, but I wish the tour guide had informed us as a group that it was closed. I only found out because I overheard the guide talking to another tourist. But that's only minor detail, overall it's a fantastic trip. Make sure you wear appropriate outfits to get the most of it all.
Excellent, would recommend to anyone!
I would not have missed this experience!! Even though I was a teen
ager when this war took place, it is very clear in my mind. Excellent
My husband and I enjoyed this trip immensely. We had taken the tour 37 years ago, and it was interesting to see how the tour has changed and more information is availed the public. The tour is well worth the money.
The guide was very entertaining and full of information. Going to the DMZ was quite an experience and really brought home the sadness of the Korean War even after all these years. We strongly recommend including the JSA Tour. We weren't in the blue building a long time but it was worth the trip. Was awesome seeing US troops at work and being able to tell them how much we appreciate their service. The DMZ tour was in the morning, then the group was split for those going on for the JSA tour. Some of the morning DMZ group did not know they had to plan in advance for JSA so please make a note that you must plan ahead. For Viator we had to send passports 7 days in advance. Once in South Korea the guide said you had to submit passports a minimum of 48 hrs in advance. You can't decide at the last minute you want to go and you'll wish you had made plans for this once in a lifetime experience.
The tour guide was very detailed and passionate about the subject matter. The tour was the highlight of my visit to Korea.
This tour is one of my most awaited experiences for my visit in South Korea and it didn't disappoint me. The tour was exceptionally great and informative. We were picked up from our hotel in the morning and transferred too the official tour bus. The highlight of the tour was the visit at the 3rd infiltration tunnel. It was a loooooong "hike" to and fro the tunnel. It was an amazing experience. Our friendly tour guide Michelle was very helpful and accommodating too! My friends and I were very happy to have taken this tour from viator. :)
Michelle our tour guide was knowledgeable, informative and entertaining in her rapid-fire delivery. To have personal attention helps to bring the reality of the place to life. One cannot help but feel a frisson of fear to see armed soldiers squatting in ditches and mine danger signs behind barbed wire fences. To walk along the third tunnel and ascend to the surface is a worthwhile experience, as is the view over the observatory wall. The huge, empty station is a testament to man's hope for peace and unity. I was unable to attend the JSA Panmunjon Touw and so cannot comment on that.
