What makes your DMZ tour more intrigue and authentic? This is my theme as a tour guide for years. more historical, more realistic, more experenced tour to my tourists.

I put the armed conflicts between N.Korea and S.Korea. It is Blue House Raid in 1968. N.Korea Spy Commandos tried to assassinate S.Korea Presidient. DMZ SPY tour follow N.Korea Spy Commandos’ invasion route from Seoul to DMZ.

In the original course, tourists could visit S.Korean army camp. But now unavailable due to COVID19. Instead tourists have chances to chat with N.Korean defector trying N.Korean foods by N.Korean defector chef.

if your are history buff I recommend this tour. If you try to find authentic DMZ tour program, this is yours!

This is a very comfortable and wonderful journey. You can visit some beautiful places that are private and not very touristy, and you can eat local food, i like this travel, very nice.
Great tour with Alfonzo and family!

We had a fantastic tour of the DMZ with Alfonzo! We appreciated the history, insights, and fun facts along the way. We had 9 in our family group (youngest in grade 8) and all ages found it very engaging. My dad and aunt had grown up in Seoul and found it especially insightful, as did my AP History teacher husband. Trump visiting the DMZ prevented us from seeing the JSA, but Spy Tour worked with us to still make it engaging - adding in other spots of interest. So glad we were paired with Alfonzo as our guide.
The DMZ was closed, but everything worked out great

We were notified that the DMZ was closed, because of African Swine Flu in North Korea, but we were offered two options; full refund or a modified tour. We chose the modified tour and it turned out to be a very good decision. While we couldn't get to the DMZ area itself, we went to the observation tower, which was quite interesting, took an extended walk along the invasion route near the Blue House where we observed military installations and observed the remnants of where actual fighting took place and we got to spend an extended period of time at the Military Museum, with our guide who pointed out some very interesting facts about the Korean Conflict, that I was unaware of. The highlight of the day was spending one hour with a North Korean defector. Jeong Hyun Kim, defected from North Korea and her story of how she made her way to the South Korea was absolutely fascinating. We learned about life in North Korea, we heard about the unsuccessful attempt she made to come to South Korea, followed by her success in getting to Seoul. We asked lots of questions and with the help of our tour guide she answered all of them. The meeting with a North Korean defector was not part of the original tour itinerary, but due to the closure of the DMZ, this meeting, a longer tour of the museum and the short hike along the invasion route, more than made-up for the area we couldn't visit.

Our tour was with DMZ Spy Tour, it was a great experience and interesting tour. Lee Shrek was very helpfulin getting the tour set up for us. We were pick up in a nice comfortable car by Eric Lee who is so helpful and informative about the Korea war and made the tour so much more interesting.
Be prepared to walk, in autumn it is cool so it was enjoyable. He took us to DMZ border and the underground tunnel and what a experience.
Not the tour we took (PLEASE READ ALL OF THE REVIEW)

The tour we took was actually "Private Tour : Talk show with N.K. Defector & Short Hike to N. Korean Spy Commando Invasion Route : Ancient future"

The company putting on this tour runs a bit of a bait and switch (partially their fault, partially bad luck). We initially booked a tour called "Ultimate Private DMZ Spy Tour, including JSA". We provided all kinds of information including passport numbers etc. Took days to get confirmation. Multiple emails to Viator and tour company with no information/update. Literally 24 hours after getting confirmation we were told JSA was closed (I understand things happen). We were offered the "Talk show with N.K. Defector & Short Hike to N. Korean Spy Commando Invasion Route : Ancient future" tour as an option but were offered no refund of the significant difference in price ($256 vs $190). We opted for a refund. As we had little time we looked quickly and booked the tour called "Small Group DMZ Spy Tour Including 3rd Tunnel" not realizing it was the same company. We get a confirmation, then about 12 hours later a cancellation and an offer to again take the alternate tour "Talk show with N.K. Defector & Short Hike to N. Korean Spy Commando Invasion Route : Ancient future".

Long story short. The JSA has been closed for months (did not know that when I started looking for tours). The tour company needs to stop the games they play and not offer tours they know they can not actually deliver. I know the JSA closing is out of the tour company's control, but why not be conservative and not book people until you are fairly sure you can offer the tour.

The company continued to be unprofessional up to the day before the alternate tour that we agreed to. After paying $370 for 2 persons for the "Small Group DMZ Spy Tour Including 3rd Tunnel" and then being told my only option was to cancel or take the tour we did take (Talk show with N.K. Defector & Short Hike to N. Korean Spy Commando Invasion Route : Ancient future) I got this email message "For your private guidance, this tour costs more than you paid but we will be pleased to do the same tour for your as a good will gesture. " cancelled cancelled two booking I had made then want to act generous by allowing me to save $10 (the tour we took was $370 for 2 passengers) after you had in fact offered me that tour. HIGHLY UNPROFESSIONAL!

All that said. The tour we took was great. PAUL LEE was a fantastic guide who added humor and knowledge.
