A visit to a variety of important sites with a knowledgeable guide.

Do this tour! Exactly 9.5 hours from Seoul departure point and return, as advertised, which is great. You need that time to see everything and could have used another 30 minutes at the JSA Visitors Center. This tour included 5 to 6 locations that are a must-see for first timers to the DMZ. The guide spoke good enough English and she did a good job explaining the basic history and acronyms of the DMZ boundaries. Customers should do a little reading of the Korean War and following cold war history before going. To get to all the tour locations, there is a lot of bus transport and switching buses involved, which can be tiring, so be rested and hydrated. Not a lot of time at any location, sometimes only 20-30 minutes, but that is actually enough. The infamous conference building, where you step over the border into North Korea, is a cool experience. No feeling of danger. Even though the war isn't over, this seems like a good money-maker attraction for the JSA and North Koreans now.

A detailed time program would have been nice to have prior to visit

The guide was fine. Excellent English, useful information. Instead of encouraging us to get something to eat, we would have preferred to have a look around on the bridge and train. We did not have time enough on the different locations, but it felt like we were pushed around. Not interested in the fake station where we had too much time. Completely weird to stop in an amethyst centre.

DMZ Afternoon Half-Day Tour Reviewed by

Very well organised and informative! Highly recommended.

The tour guide was phenomenal. She provided information that was both historic and anecdotal, while remaining in good humour. The departure and arrival times for all stops were punctual. I would definitely recommend the half day. We saw everything at a good pace and felt as though we certainly experienced the main sites.

Great way to experience current events and history

Fantastic multilingual guide who spoke English and Japanese (and Korean, of course). She wove in her own experience of speaking directly with defectors which enriched the experience. I felt that I understood a bit more about the history of the North and South, that it was an ongoing situation and very current.

Interesting view into the relationship with NK

The tour was decent overall, with many of the limitations not being a product of the tiur company but rather safety and the companies dealing with the mass of tourists. I did the half day trip and I think that was good value, both in time and money. The tour guide Jenny was also really nice
