Our guide was very knowledgeable with the DMZ tour since he is a Korean soldier. We felt lucky because he was our guide. He ensured safety to all of us. We were given just a small time to visit some sites but it was understandable since this is only a half day tour. Generally, we were happy with it.

Absolutely fascinating tour - well worth the modest expense. My wife and I could not believe we were looking at North Korea - we have photos to prove it. I will admit, the family members back home were freaking out just a bit because of all the news about the North Korean missiles of late.Every part of the tour was amazing!!! Highly recommended.

Great tour guide, i wish he could have talked more about the two Koreas. The tour is well worth it. For the tunnel, be prepared as it it very hard to go back up.

For the price I paid, I really was not expecting much as the other dmz tours cost a lot more. However, I genuinely felt that this tour was amazing. The main thing that made me feel that way was our amazing guide who was incredibly knowledgable.

My wife and I had a great time. We were picked up right at the hotel, which made it extremely easy for us being in an unfamiliar city. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and very friendly. It’s a great place to visit to learn more about tensions surrounding two countries.

Well organised tour, guide was excellent, gave a good overview of the DMZ . Tour was a great insight into the North Korean situation and to be able to see over the border was amazing. Would recommend this tour

Really good tour, David was an excellent tour guide. Recommend the half day tour/half day with lunch as the full day tour only includes bus transport back to your hotel and free time at a market. So unless you're miles from city hall or a metro station there's no need to book the full day.

The trip itself did not offer much to see- in most cases it was us just imagining how things went during the war and the significance of these sites up till the present day- but our tour guide Daria really made the trip happen with her concise and clear commentary we found ourselves picturing what went down from her descriptions and efficient time management time allocated was fair. We went for the Full-Day package and felt that we could have spent more time on tour since it was the highlight of our time in Seoul.

Excellent time worth the time and to experience the tense situation that prevails up north. The tunnel was a good experience but this might not suit people who are tall and with weak legs

This was an amazing experience. The bus picked us up at Itaewon station next to the hotel and took us to four spots. Having the opportunity to see the DMZ, hear North Korean propaganda broadcasts, and learn a lot about the events that led up to the tension that is occurring today. Hans was our tour guide and he was a lot of fun, it the trip that much more enjoyable.

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.
