The Demilitarized Zone is a unique area where you can observe one country being divided into two. Experience the tension but hope for peace in Korea…
What people are saying about War Memorial of Korea
Due to unforeseen circumstances the DMZ was closed, however we were taken on an alternative tour that we was every bit as good as the original tour would’ve been. Our tour guide, Mr. Peter, was a wonderful and told us everything we needed to know about Korean history and the conflict between north and south. We were able to go to the war memorial of Korea, the freedom bridge over the river into the DMz and also to an observation tower where we could see into North Korea. We could even see farmers harvesting rice in the fields there. It was an amazing experience and our driver and tour guide were wonderful.
Our tour guide, Mr. Kim definitely knows his history. Learned a lot of Korean history that were not written on books. He was smart and funny. Pick up and drop-off was easy and convenient. The itinerary was followed on schedule but we never felt rushed and had enough time to go around and savor the spots. And this is coming from a group of family with 4 kids, 6 year’s and under. Even though we didn’t get to visit the DMZ due to the swine flu closure, the alternative tour was educational and fun nonetheless. I highly recommend this tour group.
Unfortunately the DMZ was still closed when we went to the tour but the alternative version is still okay. We were able to see North Korea a little and learn about the culture and the war (the guide said a lot of interesting things), we enjoyed it!
The tour was not the original DMZ tour, but was just as good. The three alternate stops fulfilled my need to understand the relationship between North and South Korea more. I highly recommend!
We did the tour while the DMZ was closed by the Korean gov't (swine flu). Nonetheless, what we did get to see was great, and the tour company was very communicative.
