When you book a joint DMZ/JSA tour this is the place where you'll begin your JSA tour. Your bus has a set time to arrive-no earlier, no later or your tour will be canceled, so make sure your tour bus is on schedule!

Just before the JSA and well into the DMZ this is an opportunity to see how soldiers live and serve to safeguard freedom from a tyrannical, maniacal Communist dictatorship.

This peaceful looking area with soccer fields and golfing holes for the JSA military guards really isn't all that bucolic when you realize the entire thing is completly enclosed in multiple layers of razor wire and surrounded by minefields. Super interesting place for sure!

Excellent explanation of what happened during the Korean War. Some sad stories of the Axe Murder just because of a tree. Definitely should take the DMZ tour.

Went through here with USO Tours, and there is quite a lot to see, limited on what can be taken photos of for security reasons. They have a good souvenir shop where you can buy North Korea things as well as other DMZ things.

Very interesting place that you don't miss ! You can see North Korea closely. But a bit tension and very strict zone.

From a tourist perspective, only a place to stop, see a movie, and go to a gift shop and perhaps get a great t-shirt or a bottle of North Korean wine. While you are there, be sure to thank the soldiers you encounter for their service and to take a moment on reflect on who Major Bonifas was and the... More

All you are allowed to do here is to see a Slide show about the JSA. You also have to sign an agreement that you will follow all the rules and they will not be held responsible should you "wander" into hostile North Korea. With all the military presence, I'm not sure that would be possible! There is also a... More
