The only tour with unlimited access to a NK refugee.

The only way to visit the border is through a tour. This particular tour offers full access to a North Korean refugee. You will visit the area near the Freedom Bridge, the 3rd Tunnel and the border railroad station. You’ll be able to ask any questions you wish of the refugee on the 90 minute ride back to Seoul. The tour guide will act as the interpreter. I honestly enjoyed this portion of the tour the most. Most people will be tired and shy (it’s a long day) and have no questions. You should ask as many questions as you wish because no other tour has this benefit. No question is off limits. Be warned the bus will also make a stop at a ginseng store where you will hear a sales pitch on the health benefits of Korean ginseng. One BIG warning: There are literally dozens of border tours daily with multiple companies. Thus, when you go to the pick up place (President Hotel) it will be extremely confusing. Just go in the lobby and ask.

Great tour guide, awesome locations, good to be part of a group

I travelled to S Korea on my own so was really happy to spend the day with an awesome group. The tour guide was super knowledgeable and friendly and made the day loads of fun! (Thanks Jessica!) This tour covers all the highlights if tge old part of Seoul and I really enjoyed my day! Highly recommended!

A good tour for those who love beautiful views.

I was traveling alone, so there was not a lot of activities for me to do at Nami Island, so I felt that our stop there was too long. But I love the bike rail and The Garden of morning Calm. This tour was very nice if you have the time and want to get out of the city for a day.

A great experience and a great way to get to know Seoul.

The guide, Cyndi, was fantastic. I loved the tour and I loved the people in the tour. The size is perfect, and the guide will also take a lot of pictures of the group. If you are wondering if you should book this tour or not, I would really recommend you to do this tour.

Very interesting and I saw so many things in Seoul

Excellent- there was enough time at each stop to see everything and our guide was most informative and helpful. Our group were all very friendly and I would highly recommend this tour especially if you have limited time or do not know the city.
