About
Immerse yourself into the history of the Korean War and Learn about the extraordinary Korean Demilitarized Zone, which serves as a buffer zone between the two Koreas, slashing across the Korean Peninsula. This tour is small-group and no shopping tour. so unlike a group tour of 45 travelers, you can feel intimacy during this tour. and plus this tour does not include shopping stop. so you can fully enjoy a day during this tour. (With the outbreak of African Swine Fever, the Korean government has halted to open DMZ area to stop the spread of infection on pigs. So we revised the itinerary a little bit as below. Hotel - Imjingak Park - Odusan Observatory - War Memorial Museum - Hotel for your reference, the original itinerary was Hotel - Imjingak Park - The 3rd infiltration Tunnel - Dora Observatory - Dorasan Station - Hotel)

Interesting Tour
This tour includes a hotel pick up and drop off, which is great when you are still getting to know your way around Korea.

Our guide June was super informative and helpful. I really learnt a lot on this tour.

My favourite part was going down the tunnel. I would definately recommend this tour.

A good day trip to the DMZ
Aug 2019 • Solo
A good day trip to the DMZ. Tour organisor contacted me a day before on what to expect, such as hotel pick up time, passport requirement and the need to bring some food. Got pickedup and dropped off on time. The tour guide, Ms. June was great. The Dora observatory and the infiltration tunnel were highlights; the trip in and out of the tunnel can sound scary but if you pace yourself it's fine.

Not exciting but interesting. Being in a small group made it better. The views around the DMZ are a reminder of the current struggle between the two countries. The tunnel is a bit of a hike and not something that would impress everyone. Might skip that. Having a translator and tour guide is worthwhile.

DMZ on a hot August day
Aug 2019 • Solo
I choose this company because they offered a small group tour, and because they would pick me up and return me to my hotel. The city is large and I didn't feel comfortable taking the subway and didn't want the expense of a taxi.

Our tour guide, June, was very knowledgeable and shared details about Korea that were important to know and understand. There are basically five stops -- at the center where you pick up a government-sponsored bus, the newly built train station that will be at the ready when the two countries re-unite, the tunnel, the observation deck, and finally the South Korean village that is within the DMZ but under the protection of the United Nations.

I would advise you to take heed of the warning of being fit. The walk down to the tunnel and then in the tunnel is somewhat taxing. If you have bad knees, the walk down is difficult, and then the walk back up is quite the aerobic workout.

The observation deck was very interesting as you could see right into North Korea.

June was incredibly kind to me. She walked up with me to make sure I was okay, fanning me the entire way. She even gave me her umbrella to keep me out of the sun as I was not prepared for how much we would be outside.

I highly recommend this service.
