Very disappointed in my experience. I had to postpone my visit on short notice and the host was unwilling to accept a reschedule of my visit. I am planning to visit seoul again in one month so I will have to find another tour operator to visit the DMZ

We had a very enjoyable and unique experience with this DMZ tour. Our guide Nancy did a great job at making this tour both fun and a learning experience for everyone. I can only recommend that you try this tour while you are in South Korea, since you can't see anything like it anywhere else. #teamnancy

Sunny was the best host! She was smart to have the trip start early so we would be the first ones in the park which is divided by groups. She spoke really good English and was very informative with Korean History and culture. I enjoyed it a lot. Thank you so much for the experience

Beware the tunnel!
Jamie_C
, Jun 2022
Nancy was a excellent guide - gave everyone a lot of history and helpful in general. Be warned if you're tall, going down into the tunnel you going to be bent double walking (squat shuffling..) for 200 metres down a cramped space, and the climb back up the main shaft is absolutely knackering if you're not that fit! Not worth it to see a wall with a sign and a tiny window looking at another wall.

This tour was pretty much perfect! My friend and I learned so much about Korean history, and we were well looked after by Nancy -- she made us feel comfortable and answered any questions we had. The tour had a steady pace, we were never at any of the sites for too long, but it didn't feel rushed. It was very powerful to visit the Dora Observatory, and to learn about the lives of those who live in the DMZ villages. Nancy made sure that we were at the front of the queue for the tour, and kept us informed at every step of the way, it was seamless. I couldn't recommend this tour more!

Sunny was amazing and tour was smart to get us there earlier than planned as we were able to make the first shuttle to the DMZ area. It was worth the early wake up as we were done in time for lunch after. The experience was incredibly educational and my teens enjoyed it.

Absolutely brilliant and informative trip to DMZ with the wonderful Nancy Yeon as our guide. Not to be missed! Everything ran like clockwork. Nancy was charming and fun yet was so well informed and clear. I learned so much about Korean history 1950-53 together with a perspective on the emotional cost at the time with families divided. At the observation deck we saw North Koreans distantly at work on the land. Tunnels were fun to do but you do need a degree of fitness to do them - you can easily sit them out though! Go Team Nancy!
