We booked a tour through the USO. You learn a great deal more than the general understanding of what has taken place and the way of life for Koreans. Very informative history as well as heart wrenching memorials. Everything from the barbed wire fenced river with armed foreces to the minefields, the tunnels, the train station in waiting for the...

Great Korean history. I recommend doing a tour through the hotel. You get to learn a lot about why Korea is split and the efforts they have made to attempt to reunite and the hardships as well. The tunnels are so cool but be prepared to walk... No flip flops!! This is your only way to get a glimpse of... More

I visited this place with a mixed feeling. On one side it is a silent statement of South Korean (and Americans) resilience against oppression and autocracy, and on the other hand a vivid declaration of the cruelty and pain caused to so many soldiers and population, where a river of blood still flows dividing that nation. If you are a... More

We booked a tour to the DMZ. We started out around 7AM and a van picked us up. Then we were dropped at a main location and switched to a big bus. The tour was pretty full. It took about an hour to reach the DMZ. We were met with a lieutenant which was our tour guide inside the DMZ.... More

Took the half day tour to DMZ, best to go with a tour guide because they will give a lot of background about DMZ and a little history north and south korean war. A lot to learn, plus you get to view North Korea from the observatory. You can go under the tunnel, but it could be a lot tiring... More

Took the DMZ train from seoul station. Passports have been checked at Imjingang station and we were transferred to a bus which brought us around DMZ. A walk down the third tunnel was interesting but one needs to be physically fit to get back out.

How often do you take tours to demilitarized zones which are technically still at war? Well, this is the one. It includes the stop at Imjingak Park, Third Tunnel, Dora Observatory, Dorasan Train station and possibly JSA with Camp Bonifas. At JSA you will actually enter the room which is partly in North Korea. Great destination.

The DMZ tour gives a great insight into the sad history of the Korean wars plus a peak into North Korea from a distance(the most a majority of us can ever see). Also a visit to the Dorasan Station which will one day run trains that link the Great Trans Siberian Railway and the Trans Chinese Railways.... someday but atleast... More

As a Korean American, I went on a DMZ/ JSA tour when I was in my teens. This time, I went with my husband who had never been to Korea before and he loved it! I also really enjoyed it as it had been years since I had first visited the area. My parents and I booked our DMZ/ JSA... More

DMZ is located about one hour away from Seoul . It is not recommended for the kids and aged above 60 . Because it might be boring for kids and difficult for aged travelers . The high light of the site is the tunnel which I had been diged by the North Koreans to penetrate South Korea . This tunnel... More
