Our tour guide Nancy was fantastic. We enjoyed the entire trip, but are favorite was the Observation Deck and looking at North Korea, and eating soybean ice cream in the village. It was delicious!

Having read a book describing the atrocities occuring on a daily basis in North Korea, being 170m from that border is nearly unfathomable. Our guide, Moon, was terrific. She showed and explained all the history and important landmarks to us and let us ask any questions that came to mind. I definitely recommend visiting the DMZ if you have the chance!

Team Nancy! I went on this tour on a clear day with slight wind, allowing me to see the North Korean flag. Nancy is a wonderful guide who translated for me so I could get soybean ice cream from a vendor in the DMZ.

Great tour of the DMZ complete with history lesson
Daniel_S
, Jul 2022
Jenny was a fantastic tour guide. She gave us all the background and context we needed to fully understand what we were seeing. Some of the experience depends on weather (e.g. the view into North Korea from the observatory), but I easily recommend it. Our guide was nice enough to email clearer pictures of some things to anyone that wanted it. 10/10.

A fantastic day! We got to visit all the important locations in the DMZ and get some totally unique souvenirs. It was a clear day so the view from the observatory was incredible. Shout out to the bus driver and our lovely guide Nancy who took great care of us all day and made sure we got the most out of every stop on the tour.

The tour with Nancy has been amazing. She was very knowledgeable and kept the tour simple and enjoyable. Don’t miss out on this tour, it really is great. The only suggestion I have is that before you do up to the observatory deck on the 3rd floor, watch the video on the 2nd floor first. It really helps understanding what you see from up there.
