Unique opportunity to view a N. Korean town and talk to a defector.
This was an alternate tour because of the DMZ being closed due to African Swine Flu. Still a great tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. He answered all of our questions about the Korean conflict. Of course, being able to look into a North Korean town and talk to a defector were the main draws of this tour. Talking to the defector was the best part. It was great to hear about their experience and opinions on the politics of the Koreas. Once in a lifetime opportunity. Would recommend to anyone interested in Korean War history or life in N. Korea.

Definitely a must do when you are in Seoul! The North Korean defector and tour guide were unforgettable!
We initially opted for the DMZ tour. We were informed the DMZ area was closed by UN due to african swine flu for safety reasons and were offered the NLL tour. We decided to proceed with the alternative tour and were promptly picked up at 8am at our hotel in Seoul. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of information about the history of north and south Korea. The NLL tour also comes with a Q&A with a north Korean defector, which we can ask questions through the tour guide during the bus ride. Passport and security checks are not required. Recommended if you are interested to learn about the history of Korea, and specifically to understand life as a north Korean defector. Service from booking the activity until the end of the tour was excellent!

Definitely a must do when you are in Seoul! The North Korean defector and tour guide were unforgettable!
The DMZ tour with the North Korean defector was a memorable and unforgettable experience. Definitely a must do when visiting Korea for the first time. This tour gained me more knowledge and a better understanding about the Korean War and the Korean Peninusla. The tourguide was one of the best tourguides I could ever imagined and gave me a better impression of the DMZ area. Also the North Korean defector revealed us about her life in North Korea and on the way back to Seoul there was a Q & A session. It was truly heartbreaking to hear her story and it made me realize how lucky I am. During the trip we have visited the Third Tunnel an amazing experience and a good physical exercise. Wear comfortable shoes as the tunnel is quite steep. After the tunnel we headed to the new Dora observatory where we could see a glimpse of North Korea. The tourguide explained and pointed out some interesting sights for us. After that we have visited the Dora train station the future gateway to North Korea. Currently it isn't in operation but you can get your stamp for Pyeongyang. Maybe one day this will be the gateway to the North.

Amazing DMZ tour
Me and my friend were amazed with the tour to DMZ. It was another experience to see the land of the forbidden. Our tour guide was excellent and I would give him 5 star for his knowledge and made us for the day. Perfect tour!

DMZ half day tour
Our family was on the DMZ tour where the summit is an issue around the area. We had a great time and experience with a good English speaking tour guide who explained with wide information for Korea. The tour was well organized and we were able to have nice time for the day.
