If you don't know why the US stations troops all over the world, this tour might give you a hint. Heavy fortifications, detailed instructions about what not to do so as not to provoke the North Koreans, and the tour guide's thorough explanations of the history all contribute to the feeling of just what this area represents, historically and right...

We did this trip as part of a full day tour to the DMZ and JSA. This site and the 3rd tunnel are definitely worth doing. Helps remind you what the North Korean's have done over time... We did the tour through tourdmz.com and thought they did a great job coordinating and controlling the whole day. A great history lesson... More

Highlight of our trip ...however if you you only have time/money for one skip the DMZ tour and just go for JSA tour where you are really walking on North Korean soil and visiting close up historical sites .. It was an amazing experience and highly recommended worth every penny ... The highlight of the DMZ is the tunnels ..... More

For people who are interested in modern history, visiting the DMZ gives you some perspective of the remnants of the Cold War. Both countries were countries were inextricably linked to their foreign allies.

We visited the 3rd infiltration tunnel, the park, the train station and the area where you can see the border with North Korea. This half-day tour will give you goosebumps. Don't miss it!

My husband and I have both been to Seoul before but this was our first visit together. We had purposefully saved a visit to the DMZ/JSA so we could experience it together and be able to talk about what we saw and felt. We were very glad we did! We took a guided tour through Cosmojin and really enjoyed it.... More

A worth going trip. But remember to book your trip early because it required some time for the tour agency to clear your name with the authority.

I believe this is one of the most historically impacting places in Korea. If you're staying at a hotel ask for a brochure/references of guided tours. I'm usually the type of tourist that likes to explore places on my own and at my own pace: DMZ is the exception. You NEED someone local and with some expertise on the country's... More

It was all over a different experience. To know about the history of Korea, wars etc. Our tour guide CK was nice. He provided us all the information. The 3rd tunnel was a good experience. Never seen a thing like this before. All over good experience. Don't miss.

We had done the DMZ from the North Korean side just two days earlier and heard their version of the war etc. which did not jibe with what we knew so we were keen to see and hear things from the South Korean perspective. First of all just getting there was a sheer delight on an air conditioned luxury coach... More
