Jsa trip is one of the great experience. You will feel strictly when you access inside the area. The conference room is one of the best part.

We booked our tour through Cosmojin and had S.P. as our guide. Everything about the tour was perfect (from what to wear-conservative clothes, please-to the itinerary and history and background). We felt we really got our money's worth from the tour. All the places you'll visit are in the top 7 of Things to Do in Paju. Some you'll find... More

It's a great experience to visit this Panmunjom (JSA). You will get close to the North Korea while standing in the area of Seoul Korea. But it's better to take the tour course here... Very convenience.... (As they are very strict.) I would like to recommend : "JoongAng Tour" (Very good service) Office at : 6F, Joongang Express Tour, Lotte... More

Im sure the dmz would have been interesting if it weren't for the pushy tour guide we were lumped with. Ms lee basically rushed us through the entire day. Impatient and aggressive sums her up. Buses used by panjumon travel center are ancient. We hit the road in a bus with no air conditioning. ..as ms Lee noticed our grumbling... More

There are not many places you can visit that bring history to life and emphasize the truth of a very challenging historically significant situation. The Korean War is not talked about that much and too many people only think of M*A*S*H when they think of Korea. This is a live war zone and the reality is that many US and... More

This is a fantastic place to visit and really helps you understand what is going on between North and South Korea. It is one of the most intense places I have been. The North Korean's are watching everything! They even stopped our bus as they thought someone took a photo of the NK guard tower, which is prohibited! U.S. Marine... More

The most intense place I have ever visited! It is surreal what is going on across the border that is in view. There are many restrictions on what you can and cannot wear and no pointing. North Korea is always watching and could use pictures of you in propaganda. A must see location when you come to South Korea.

Very interesting, I enjoyed this tour very very much! you get an inside look at the most militarized border in the world between the North and South Korea, just divided by a thin white painted line. Included in the tour is a visit to the "unification observatory" , explanation of the conflict, lunch, viewing of the DMZ and a view... More

The reason I have given this a poor rating is not because I don't think these tours are any good, but simply because you need to be aware that the tour can be cancelled just as you arrive at the Military camp (Camp Bonifas). We arrived a few days after the recent land mine explosion which injured 2 S Korean... More

The JSA tour was very good. To summarize it: - Tour starts at Lotte Hotel (the tour companies have their offices on the 6th floor) - Take the JSA (Panmunjon) tour. The normal tour is acompanied by a North Korean defector and you can ask everything you always wanted to know about that strange country in the North - Tour... More
