As part of the tour, we visited Camp Bonifas (named in honor of Captain Bonifas who perished in the Axe Murder Incident), the Joint Security Area where the blue conference rooms (UN owned) are, the Bridge of No...

If you are visiting Korea, a visit to the border is a must-do. The impact is likely to be even more if you already know something about the conflict between North and South Korea, but the sense of wonder about how something like this still exists in this day and age is a feeling you are unlikely to find elsewhere....

This tour, provided by USO (now known as Koridoor) from Camp Kim in Seoul lasts a whole day and is run by a korean guide and later US Army soldiers in Camp Bonifas. Professionally run, you can visit the Dorasan station, Dora observatory, the third tunnel and the JSA. Undoubtedly the highlight is visiting the JSA where you come face... More

Visited JSA with two of my daughters and all of us enjoyed throughly. A great way to learn about the history of Korean War. A must visit if you come to Seoul. P.s: We engaged a local tour guide, Cosmojin, for this tour.

I visited here with USO Tours (Now called Koridoor) and they were extremely professional, and we got to see a lot of the DMZ, as it was a whole day tour, we got the whole DMZ experience. It definitely was something to behold to see how militarized the area is still and how the security is quite intense. They have... More

We toured with the USO out of Seoul. It takes a full day. You leave Seoul around 8:00 and return around 3:30. You go to the JSA, joint service area. You get to go to the DMZ building that straddles South Korea and North Korea. You can walk to the far end of the building and be in North Korea.... More

We did the USO tour of the DMZ including Panmunjom. Quite exciting to vist the front line where North & South come face to face. A GI took us round the sites and was very good with some humour to conteract the tension, made us feel quite safe.

In sK for a few weeks and this was the one day I had free. Went to DMZ and stopped here. Eye opening to see the contrast and security measures. Sad to think that sK has been living with nK like this for decades. Go and experience.

We booked both the DMZ and JSA (Panmunjeom) day tour with V.I.P. Tours. Our guide, Song, was sufficiently knowledgeable about the history of the war and the DMZ. We were fortunate in two ways; a U.S. veteran who had been stationed in the DMZ in 1961 was on this tour. He shared his unique insights and anecdotes (e.g. the Jayne... More

Booked the JSA Tour only (no need to book dmz). JSA is the only tour worth taking where we got to: a) visit the UN Command stationed to keep the peace at dmz; b) visit the conference row,whichdirectly faced north korea and a north korean army personnel; c)take a north korea selfie ; d) go into the conference room and...
