I highly recommend Mr Chang’s Korean Wheelchair Tour to anyone who has mobility challenges and yet still wishes to visit DMZ.

Mr Chang has a lot of initiatives when it came to helping us to take photographs and also making sure that my aged father had regular visits to the washrooms. All the little things count a lot for us especially when we were in a foreign land and do not speak its native language.

He took care of my father in the wheelchair throughout the trip and that allowed us to also enjoy the sightseeing without having to worry too much about my father’s wellbeing.

A big thank you Mr Chang and his associate - David!

Just given insufficient time to take in the political enormity of the DMZ. Felt the tour was far too rushed and too little explanation provided about the different elements

I just paid for a tour and finished a dmz tour. They didn’t tell us that the JSA was closed until the very end of the dmz tour.

Visited the tunnels, a little cramped for big people, have to bend over. Very popular but extremely interesting to see into north Korea from the top of the hill. The war, in many ways continues. The younger generation need to carry on the vigilance against the North. Reconciliation is being attempted by the South. Unfortunately JSA was closed when we visited.

The tours to the JSA were reopened May 1, 2019 after a seven month halt and we visited May 4. Due to the political tenseness, final confirmation of our tour was not made until the day before and the time of the tour was changed. There are many tour companies and our American military guide at the JSA did say that tours are available from Pyongyang in North Korea for citizens of countries other than the US or South Korea.

Now the guards at the JSA are unarmed and the two sides remain out of the way of each other. We did not see any North Koreans during the visit. If your visit to the JSA is close to noon, you may see foreign visitors and their escorts from the Pyongyang tour at a distance.

I took the half day tour two years ago and the Dora observatory building is new and the Dorasan station was full of pictures of Kim Jung Un and Moon Jae-In meeting in cooperative talks. Quite a change in two years.

The sites are crowded with many tours and the lunch is served very efficiently for the crowd. Bring your own sandwich if you don’t like Korean food.

Do not book this tour if you are not flexible on your timing.

The third tunnel has a tram available from certain much more expensive tour companies. Research that and book that tour if you are not physically fit. We were both senior citizens who are very active; however, the third tunnel climb back to the surface was a challenge.

There are many tour companies offering the tours. KORIDOOR tours start near Yongsan or Pyeongtaek (Camp Humphreys).

My partner experienced the Korean War first hand and the tour had a special meaning. Your experience may be different.

Picture shows tree of cooperation planted leaders of both sides.
