While on tour in the Seoul area, I took the tour up to the DMZ. One of my Uncles was part of the fighting force during the Korean War. I was very interested to see some of what he might have experienced. I looked at all of the wall placards with their long lists of military forces who lost their... More

I went on the Koridoor DMZ/JSA/3rd tunnel tour. It is best to book early to avoid disappointment. It was a wonderful tour and very informative. I definitely recommend making sure your tour visits the JSA as you actually set foot in North Korea. The climb back up of the 3rd tunnel is a bit of a hike and tall people... More

We booked the DMZ/JSA tour through Koridoor/USO. The rest of the family wasn't that interested in going, but after our 3 weeks in Asia, they all said it was one of their top two highlights from the 3 countries we visited. Each part of the tour was interesting--JSA (Joint Security Area--where inside one of the blue buildings you can step... More

We went with the Koridoor tour which works in conjunction with the USO. This tour visits the JSA, meaning you go right into the DMZ into the blue huts and you effectively stand in North Korea. The first part of the tour takes you to the observation area where you see the DMZ. You cannot take photos over the yellow... More

I think it is best to book a tour so that you learn more about the history of the DMZ and the war. The tour guides are quite knowledgeable and can add personal stories from their childhoods. You do not get quite enough time at each stop to see everything. Unfortunately, the day I went it was extremely hazy so... More

I recommend going to DMZ to anyone who asks me what to see in south korea. It's a unique experience. Everything was new and interesting. I think this is the first time I listen to a tour guide in all my trips. You just want to learn, understand and absorb every information.

The game of the parts is more evident than anywhere else. They have a shared barrack from where you can easily go to the other Korea - for a second. This gives you an idea of what Berlin should have tasted 25 years ago. Massive propaganda.

I highly recommend the Koridoor DMZ tour, which is conducted in cooperation with the USO and departs from Camp Kim in Seoul. I have been on this tour five times since 2009 (the most recent was this summer) with various travel partners and groups, and it maintains its excellent quality. I recommend putting a DMZ visit on your Korea itinerary... More

I don't think you can go to the DMZ smoothly or safely...or maybe not at all unless you take a tour, but it's definitely worth seeing because it's an amazing life experience, even if you're not a history buff. It makes you think and appreciate your life and freedom on a different level. My tour included Imjingak, Dorasan Station, the... More
