We visited a number of DMZ sights including the Odusan Unification Tower and sights at Imjingak like the steam engine, Skywalk, Bridge of Freedom and Beat 131 (Underground bunker). We then spent time at the War Memorial of Korea and finished up at the Seoul Tower. The tour gave us new insights on the devastation of this war and then the speed in which South Korea rebuilt is truly remarkable.
Our tour guide and driver, Brian was excellent. He was knowledgeable and interesting. We would highly recommend this tour company and guide.
A great day

The tour was good and we had a really good tour guide named Kim. He was knowledgeable, helpful and pleasant and we would highly recommend him. The DMZ part of the tour was very interesting and well worth it. The Dragon Hill Spa was OK but it took a long time to work out what we were able to do and then how to do it. I would have happily left that part out.
