My husband and I did the DMZ tour and it was a great day. Rebecca was our guide and was very knowledgeable and her English was great. The drive out to the DMZ gave us a chance to see the countryside as well as the interesting destination once we got in the DMZ area. We went to 4 different places within the DMZ, The tunnels, the train stations, the POW bridge and the historic locomotive. I recommend this tour, it ran on time, the pick up and coach was comfortable and the sights were interesting. The walk out of the tunnel was hard, but I am unfit and I made it ok.

We were being picked up at our hotel at 8am. They were running 10 minutes late and called the hotel to let us know. The guide on our tour spoke good English. Our first stop was Imjingak . We only had 15 minutes there, I wish that we had more time. The next stop was the Third Tunnel. This was my favorite stop of the trip. Note that you cannot take your camera into the tunnel. Definitely bring a 500 won coin to use in the telescope at the Dora Observatory to view North Korea up close. We did the tour with lunch that was at an authentic Korean restaurant. The only thing I didn't like was that we had to stop at a Duty Free shop near Seoul Station before the tour ended for those without lunch, and before we went to lunch. I know this is a way they make money, but I'd rather not stop there, or at least have less time there and more at the actual DMZ sites.

This was GREAT! Sunny was an awesome tour guide and had so many funny stories! She really connected with the group and I would have loved to chat with her for hours! This tour was so informative and interesting and really piqued my interest of the history of Korea. The shuttle pick-up and such was a little confusing in the morning but the tour guides cleared it up fairly quickly. The 3rd infiltration tunnel was pretty steep and slippery so if you haven't exercised in a while or have heart problems, I wouldn't recommend it. It was a little anticlimactic because you get to the end and you see concrete slabs but I think Sunny's knowledge and story-telling really makes up for it. We also visited Dora observatory, which to me, was the most interesting part. When looking through the binoculars, you could actually see North Koreans going about their daily business. It was really crazy! We also visited Dorasan Station where you can pick up souvenirs and see the completely built out train station and airport if the Korean War ever ends. It was really interesting and also a little sad because it was so empty. And then I thought the stop at the ginseng market was going to take forever but we were only there for 15 minutes! It was great! I really enjoyed it and if you get Sunny, count yourself very lucky! A quirkier, funnier, and more knowledgable tour guide I cannot imagine!

Just one other sidenote, we had read that we needed to dress nicely on some blogs when in close proximity to North Korea but this is completely untrue. Just dress comfortably and you'll be just fine.

This tour was fantastic! Our guide Ji Yeon Yoo was very insightful and had extensive knowledge about the history of the DMZ and various landmarks we passed. She was so approachable and helped with any questions or queries asked. The lunch in Myeongdong was well worth it too!!

Great tour leader, Chloe. She was very knowledgeable and entertaining.
Good value for the money. Really enjoyed the lunch seemed very authentic!
Somehow, I thought we would also be visiting an area where we would be closer to seeing actual military and guards.

We made the tour with a one year old baby and enjoyed it very much, although everything was a little bit in a hurry many different places in a short time. Of course you cannot expect a luxury tour for this price, but we even went to a traditional village and could try some local specialities as Kimchi and Tofu.

Our guide Rebecca was very nice and accommodating with a good sense of humour. Please take note that this tour DOES NOT take you directly to the JSA Building or the actual border but only to cultural centres/ sights that explain the history of the conflict. The closest you will get to the NK border is through the 3rd tunnel which is part of this tour. Take note also that walking down the 3rd tunnel IS NOT for the faint of heart. I am severely asthmatic and while I made it out of the 300 meter long incline, looking back I wish I just turned around and did not finish the 3rd tunnel tour lest I passed out in front of all the tourists there. Not recommended for elderly or people with breathing problems. But Rebecca did warn us of this - too bad I had no idea how steep the climb was. So again, I do not recommend you to push through with the 3rd tunnel tour if you have the above health issues.
The rest of the tour was ok for the price paid - the lunch in Insadong was also very tasty although it does not take you back to the City Hall stop. You need to find your way back. Rebecca also assisted an elderly tour guest to his destination which I thought was very helpful of her even if it was our of her way.

Very good guide and nice overall tour of the DMZ highlights. The tunnel walk was especially interesting. Would be a 5 star tour if there was no ginseng stop -- its annoying to have this stop when everyone is ready to go eat lunch!

Excellent tour, half day was about right for us. They were nice combination of organized yet a little flexible one son working in Korea, running late, they were very cool about that. Tour guides were clever and knowledgeable. All in all a great experience. Only minor downside is they finish at some ginseng store pretending to be a museum, where you are treated to a hard sell did you know ginseng can cure just about everything, even cancer?. But I suppose they have to make a few extra dollars somehow - apart from that the whole experience was definitely worth it.

Sharon was a great guide. The tour could benefit from a new microphone to better hear/understand her with.
