Very good tour, well organized! Good way to get an overview of the DMZ and to catch a glimpse of North Korea. The tour guide, Nancy, was great and explained the history of the korean war very well and in an engaging manner.

The trip was amazing. We had booked the morning tour, so we had to get up very early, but it was worth it. First of all, the view was great and then we were back in Seoul in the afternoon. In addition, the tour was very well organised, which was very pleasant, because you only had to get there and everything else was planned by them.
Our tour guide Sunny was so nice and funny. She not only explained the history between North and South Korea, but also told many interesting stories of small differences, as well as anecdotes I want to tell my family about. In addition, she could answer any questions and also included some Korean names of places or people in the English explanation.

I would definitely recommend the tour, if you also want to learn about Koreas history and some funny anecdotes.

Nancy was a very good guide. She was patient and kept us informed. I got lost/delayed and she texted and called to help me find the tour. I felt so bad and was running to make it but she calmed me down.I really enjoyed the tour and Nancy was able to answer my questions about the DMZ zone and what the rules were. She explained every stop, what souvenir was worth buying or not, and what to expect. Definitely recommend.
