We went on the JSA then DMZ tour done by Seoul City Tour. It was educational. Rebecca our guide pointed out important notes for the participants with lively stories in between. She was cheerful and helpful. The trip was well worth it.

It's a very somber place to visit. You can see the Freedom Bridge and Mangbaeda which is an alter for Koreans to pay respect their families living in North Korea. You can then ride and walk through the 3rd tunnel and Dora Observatory.

I was so happy I took in this full day tour of the DMZ, 3rd tunnel and the JSA. It was quite interesting to see the military and all the tensions in your face between the north and south. Lunch was included in my tour and cost 130,000 won. The bus tour was full with approx 40 people. It did... More

This is an interesting place to get acquainted with the background of the Conflict between the north and south. Let me just say this that kids are allowed on this half day tour. This tour is different from JSA tour. The guide told us that the South Korean authorities only allow 5k visitors per day for the DMZ tour and... More

The North Koreans shot water on us while we were using the high-powered paid binoculars! Propoganda and music was blaring the entire time from the North Koreans. Can't imagine having to hear this all day, every day. This was definitely a must see for us, and the 3rd Tunnel was very interesting, but not recommended for anyone not up for... More

Instead of the usual Seoul city tours, we chose to go to the DMZ to experience a bit of history, but also the current issues facing the Koreas. After the staging at Imingak, we were transported by bus to the DMZ. Passing thru a very extensive military checkpoint where our passports were inspected. Once there we were able to see... More

It's a short trip from Seoul, and extremely interesting. Luckily, i was on a small tour (12people) and our guide was brilliant! Very knowledgeable, friendly and witty! Seen bigger groups and their guides that didn't seem that well informed and the groups were pushed around like cattle without time to enjoy the experience. Make sure you're on a good tour... More

This was on the bucket list. Tours are well organized, and work to time. If you don't mind confined spaces (and I do mind) you can enjoy seeing the Third Tunnel - goes down about 400 meters at 11 degrees (doesn't sound much but when you are coming back up believe me it is steep incline and has you puffing...

We visited in March 2017 and it was a great day full of information about North & South Korea. Why the war happened. Include the JSA. It's worth the $$!

So I booked this tour through trip advisor a week before I was set to travel, everything was made easy with an option of being picked up at any Seoul hotel. I was staying with a friends in guri so I got picked at a local hotel near by. Was picked up by a friendly driver early in the morning... More
