Very good tour of DMZ
Martina_B
, Nov 2021
We were very happy with the trip! Sunny was a very fun and knowledgeable guide. Quite a lot of the tour is outdoors, so book a day when pollution is low (so you actually can see North Korea) and sunny if you can. If it is cold outside, don’t forget to dress accordingly. We saw the 3rd tunnel, an exhibition about the area, the Dora observatory and a local market. If you are in South Korea you should make sure to book a tour to the border, it is a very cool experience! We felt that a half day tour was enough time.

Informative and Engaging tour.

We had Sunny as our guide. She was so informative and engaging with our group (including two kids). DMZ was not open for our booking but she shared pictures with us to of what we would have seen to provide more background for us. It was a great tour and the driver was also great. I would highly recommend VIP Travel to my friends!

"Don't miss" experience!

I cannot say enough good things about our tour. Our guide (Sunny) was so wonderful! On the bus ride to the start of the tour she gave very helpful historical information in a fun and engaging way. She took care of all our needs and explained the itinerary clearly. Each member of the tour group was given an ear reciever which connected to Sunny's microphone so we could always hear explanations clearly. It was a great experience that I would recommend to anyone!

Good experience

we were unable to actually visit the DMZ because of swine flu but it was still a fruitful experience. The bus was prompt and our guide was informative. Only thing that could’ve been better was the war museum, we were left to walk around on our own, which was fine, but personally don’t think it’s enough considering the price of the trip. But it was still an enjoyable time and would love to redo the tour during a time when there’s no more swine flu!

A Trip to the DMZ
Galbraith_R
, Nov 2020
I think the trip to the 3rd tunnel was an amazing experience. Seeing across the DMZ at the observation tower was chilling. Nancy, our guide, did an excellent job of explaining and contextualizing the affect on the people that have been directly affected as well as explaining in terrific detail the creation of the DMZ.
