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...

JSA tour is one that you should not miss. It is highly tense at the UN demarcation line and the UN is doing a remarkable job maintaining peace. The South Korean military personnel are extremely smart and dedicated. You get a chance to photograph yourself with the Korean soldier at the demarcation line and also in the North Korean zone...

Doing the joint tour (DMZ plus Panmunjom) was the most interesting, informative tour of North and South Korea. It is not to be missed as you cannot experience or see this anywhere else in the world. However, it is costly and if you have no interest in the history of North and South Korea and why they are separated with... More

The place is very meaningful and representative. Touring around DMZ, Panmunjeon and the JSA provides a unique feeling of the the tension brought by the war and at the same time evokes hope for the reunification in the future as they - at least to me - also provides a feeling that something is wrong and still need to be...

Striking remnant of the Korean War. Be sure to take the DMZ tour that includes a trip to Panmunjom, to see the blue buildings and be impressed by the high security, and the tough ROK guards.

We came to Seoul precisely for this tour and looked forward to it. It didnt disappoint as it gave insights to the history of both Koreas and we managed to visit the DMZ in depth, including the blue house bordering both sides of the Peninsula. The tour is off limits to kids though, as rules are very strict and all... More

I went for both the DMZ and JSA combined full-day tour and I absolutely love the JSA part more than the DMZ's. The JSA tour is definitely more intense in comparison to DMZ's because you are getting nearer to North Korea! I'd a really good and informative tour guide that gave us really clear information and instructions. It is pretty... More

Definitely make this a priority to go see while you are in Seoul ! Make sure you book ahead as these tours do not run Sunday and Monday and fill up fast! It's fascinating how this war is still going on.

The JSA tour should be top of your list for Seoul sightseeing. Do the tour that includes everything, the 3rd tunnel, the overlook areas, Camp Bonifas, lunch & other attractions. NOT a tour for kids as there are lots of places where you have to be at attention/on alert, and sit/stand in one place quietly. This would not be a... More
