After our JSA/Panmunjeom tour, our tour guide fetched us from the venue of our lunch. (Lunch is included in our morning day tour JSA+DMZ 8AM-5PM) Our DMZ tour started with Dorasan Station. The station that was supposed to connect to North Korea (Korail/MRT). Next is the Dora Observatory, then Tunnel then to the Amethyst shop. The Dora station and tunnel... More

I went on Cosmojin's DMZ tour. They picked us up on time from our obscure hotel and dropped us off at the tour bus. We had a great tour guide who spoke very good English. (She said she lived in Seattle for 10 years, that explains it). The tour guide was funny and very informative. She gave a lot of... More

I went with my partner and parents, we only had a few days left and it was something we wanted to do. We booked with www.dmzntours.com primarily because we left it so late to book, they were more than helpful, picked us up from hotel and dropped back off, the guide Gina spoke good English and was very knowledgeable.

I've been all over the world, but the Korean DMZ is near, if not at the top, of places I've been. To see North Korea with your own eyes really makes the situation real. The only downside is just how commercialized the place is, I called it DMZ Disney World as there were gift shops and nick-knacks for purchase everywhere,... More

Went on a day tour to DMZ which includes highlights of some places (e.g. Imjingak, dorasan station, unification hill, etc) and the 3rd infiltration tunnel. The entry is quite strict which require verification (of ID photo and face), and no photo-taking in some areas. The guide would remind us when and where we can take photo and when not to.... More

Interesting bit of history but not much to see. There is two kilometers on either side of the line so basically 4 KM from anything to see. Much more interesting to approach from the china side where you can walk out on the bridge to the line separating the two sides and actually see people in N Korea carrying out... More

Being a bit of a history buff, I was excited for the day tour of the DMZ and JSA and the opportunity to visit N.Korea. The tour brings you to a few main sights but the highlight of the DMZ portion was walking down the third infiltration tunnel. Be warned this is about a 2km walk underground on an incline... More

The entire tour was pretty surreal - from the historical overview to the negotiation room to the anecdotes about the North Korean side of the DMZ. If you are a history/war buff or follow international politics, this is a must see stop during your stay in Seoul. You learn a lot from the U.S. Solider tour guides and get to... More

We went on the tour to DMZ from Seoul. Very interesting, learned a lot about the Korean War and the subsequent ongoing conflict. Did not go into the 3rd tunnel as I am claustrophobic but my spouse did and was impressed by the way it was done and subsequently discovered. Lots to see around the sites, including the railway station.... More
