The best part was the spot on mountain where we saw north korea through glasses.

Der beste Part war auf dem Aussichtspunkt, wo man die Nordkoreanische Küste sehen konnte.

During in the bus shuttle i liked to enjoy the speaking about the history from nancy.

Team Nancy! Very informative day and Nancy our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgable. Today was the first day we got to take a train to Dorasan station after it had been closed since late 2019 and Nancy got us tickets! That was really cool since it’s very limited capacity. We also got to learn a lot more about the history of North and South Korea.

This Tour is very insightful and informative!
The punctuality was good, provided with useful information and we got warm packs as it was during Winter.
Trip was smooth, comfortable and good times. We did all the thing on the tour programme except for JSA and the Tunnels due to Covid but overall Im very satisfied from this tour and greatly recommend it to anyone interested in knowing more about the history and what lies behind the border to North Korea and understand better the events which happened during the Korean War.
The guide was very friendly and perfect English.

Very interesting and well organised. Amount of time at each place was perfect. Nancy the tour guide was incredibly helpful and informative. The tunnels are not as bad as she described, but it was very helpful to be warned that they can be physically tiring depending on your fitness etc. Well worth a visit. Picked up and dropped off at hotel
