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.
A truly wonderful tour - deep in history and 'tense' moments :)
Was a dream come true for me to actually see the line separation between North and South Korea.
Tour guides were excellent in providing deep historical background, good lunch (could be better though), value for money package
Fascinating! The tour guide Dora was knowledgeable, personable, and funny. The tour provides a great perspective of a part of the world that is frequently in the news. I especially liked the Dora Observatory, and the Third Infiltration Tunnel.
Wonderful! Very informative, reliable, and on time.
Great trip! Kim kept us on schedule and was very knowledgeable. The "antique" market is a street of shopping with hidden antiques, but we got dropped off at our hotel, so it was worth it.
Knowledgeable guide and great learning experience. This was a great tour!
Wonderful tour, informative guide.
The guide was vibrant, informative and cheerful. Highly recommend, only negative was maybe a extra 10-15 min where the buses change, seem a so much to see but only 10 min
Awesome!! Quite an experience. The tour guide is so nice. She helped us a lot and make sure we are taken care off until we go back to our hotel. However, if you are more than 175cm tall and have back problem, I suggest you not to go down to the the tunnel. Its quite a heavy climb.
Very good tour, I was not expecting to be so closer of South and Noth Korea border. The guide give us a lot of interesting information regarding the conflit and the relationship between 2 Koreas.
