I’m so so glad that I joined this tour while staying in Seoul for 설날!! Our guide, Jung, was absolutely lovely, really funny, and very enthusiastic. She was very knowledgeable and explained things very well. We were lucky to be able to travel through to the civilian control zone at the earliest possible time, and the weather was absolutely beautiful on the observatory, we didn’t even need the binoculars! The third tunnel was really interesting too, although it’s really a workout hahaha I was nervous because I was travelling alone, but I still had a lot of fun because Jung was so engaging. I also found the gift shops very reasonably priced and with lots of different options. They also sell North Korean bills at Imjingak Park, which I thought was really cool. Seriously, if you’re thinking about visiting the DMZ, I highly recommend this provider. Thank you Jung and team! <3

I had a really great time! we had traditional food and snacks, as well as tea. I learned alot about the history and was able to explore art and shops that I would not have done. I would recommend this tour!
