I searched for the most popular spots for tourist, then I found that DMZ is one of the popular one. The reason that I chose is that the tour fee is very good deal, and it's quite far from seoul. And one of my friends recommend the tour web site Cosmojin tour which homepage looks nicer than the others and... More

We booked the half day no lunch DMZ tour through VIATOR and went through Seoul City Tours. They were efficient with confirming, picking us up, and taking us to the DMZ. Our tour guide, Michelle, was very knowledgeable and her command of English was solid. She provided useful historical information which was interesting. The tunnel walk was very doable for... More

I went on the DMZ tour as part of a trip with VIP Tours. I elected for the 2 part tour, which costs around 120,000KRW (USD120 or GBP80). Very very very much worth it. Unfortunately, due to some other people who shared the same taxi, which was sent to our hotels for pick up, we were running about 15 minutes... More

My group (4 persons) took a full day tour which included a tour to the JSA. To me, the morning session is average i.e. visit to tunnel, observatory deck etc; the main highlight that interested me is in the afternoon tour to JSA. As security in JSA is high and restrict, therefore you got to pay attention to your guides... More

We took the half day tour which was enough for a comprehensive lesson in history. We had a good sleep the night before and ate substantial snacks on the way (too early to eat in the hotel) because I we needed the energy to go into and out of the 3rd tunnel. No photos are allowed in the tunnel but... More

One of my goals was to visit this place while on vacation in Korea and I am so glad I did!! Be sure to have a good nights sleep prior to the trip and to have a good breakfast since this trip will take up most of your day. If not , you'll still be fine since you do go... More

DMZ is DeMilitarized Zone. It is buffer zone between South Korea and North Korea. It is the last cold war relics after the Berlin wall fell. You can see 3rd tunnel, Dorasan station and North Korea from Dora observatory. If you are lucky you can see the statue of the first leader North Korea. (The north have the power delivered... More

Our group went here in September 2014. It was worth the visit for sure. A lot of heavy propaganda, but educational and interesting. Visiting the infiltration tunnel and the JSA are musts. In fact, our group agreed that the day would not have been worth it without the JSA - make sure it is included in your tour. If you... More

DMZ Tour was consisted of four memorial places : Imjingak Park, The 3rd Infiltration Tunnel, Dora Observatory, and Dorasan Station. My favorite part was the 3rd Tunnel. Walking down 400m length and 73m depth along the small tunnel of 2m height was very thrilled, and good exercise! I could feel the tension between two Koreas. It was definitely one of... More
