Take the DMZ JSA tour. It has to be a group tour since you are in a highly restricted military area. The tour includes lunch and its a full day. It gives you bragging rights to say you have stepped into North Korea. We used KTA tour and it was very well done.

We took a group tour organised by the concierge from the hotel. The trip was a half day tour which included the bus trip and entry to the DMZ. We found this a very educational visit and was interesting to hear about the history of Korea. The tour includes visits to the tunnel and the the unused train station that... More

this has been a quite interesting experience...i guess it's important to understand the real situation that these two countries are living nowadays... unfortunately i have to confess that the tour is really too expensive and i cannot understand or explain the reason of such high cost. wouldn't it be better to give the chance to do this inetersting visit to...

Interesting, insightful, cultural, surreal experience. Tours are very well organised, I went with DMZ JSA. Our tour guide Kim was outstanding and gave very insightful information whilst also being light and funny, but not annoying. He was brilliant. We were lucky. Takes a full day. Lunch included. You are not allowed to do exactly as you like for 90% of... More

Going here will give you a perspective on what you have seen on the news and what is currently happening in this part of the world. It was well worth the time and effort to get there. Don't miss it.

The whole place is an interesting experience, but the only way to get here is with tour groups which makes the time constraints placed on you very frustrating on top of the reasonable and expected military guidelines (constraints set forth). It was interesting being escorted by US soldiers who were freely giving insights into life being stationed there. They are... More

The place you really have to go to when you visit the Republic of Korea. When I went on a visit South Korea I went on the the DMZ/JSA tour. I went through Cosmojin tour agency and I had a wonderful time on this tour. I was amazed with the professional guide who seemed like an expert about the DMZ/JSA... More

Had a day Tour to the DMZ. Very interesting and exciting. Learnt lots. Good English speaking guide lunch included. Went into the "Blue House" where the borders meet. Able to take photos in most areas. The JMA area is well worth the visit. Also the bridge of No Return, Camp Bonifas where the 2 American soldiers were murdered seemed a... More

The missus and I visited this as part of the DMZ/JSA tour, really recommend it - it's is like the Ypres or other sites in western Europe, but it still has actors. Highlight for us was seeing the North Korean soldier on duty randomly hiding being the pillar and raising his eyeglass/telescope like a weird ship less pirate and looking... More
