The DMZ is the Berlin wall - but still standing. The tour into the area was a great experience - the english of our guide was not the best, but there were multiple signs in English to make everything comprehendible. We went on an early tour - departing down town Seoul before 8 am - that meant that we were... More

The weather that day is super cold yet my family was able to look, observe and admire as much as we can. And took pictures as well. Koreans really love their country to preserve such sites that is painful to their past. It's the start of wintertime when we visited here and we experienced a very cold weather and it's... More

My family was amazed to the fact that such sites were taken care of. My hubby is a history buff about war as I about social and political. Even though the weather that day is so cold, we put our efforts to see, observe and feel the environment. There is also a souvenir shop to check on items you wish... More

The DMZ tour is not only a history class but a live reminder of the consequences and ongoing developments of it. There is no better way to get in touch with Korean recent history and get a feeling about such a big event as the Korean War was. The tension is constant present there and the atmosphere is rather serious,... More

The DMZ was a great learning experience, you get to see and learn some of the last true communist states. I went during winter and it was extreamilty cold.

The trip to the DMZ is a bit out of the way, luckily I was stationed near the DMZ for a couple of months. The most interesting part is the tunnel showing where N. Koreans had tunneled through to the South. You can take the tunnel down to a point where it is sealed off (it's quite a walk and... More

I went for the DMZ tour with a friend, under an agency and the DMZ tour includes three destinations: 3rd Infiltration Tunnel, DMZ museum and the observatory. It is a pity that we only had a while in the museum and we didn't get to really fully comprehend and read through all the details. But do no worry because you... More

I visited with my friend in one day in Nov. Actually I did not have much interested in the tour. But my friend asked me to go there because the price for going suburban is reasonable. (kw38,000, cosmojin travel agency). In the bus, tour guide explained entire tour courses on the day and collected the money. He was nice and... More
