I chose Seoul City Tours to take me from Seoul to the DMZ. The experience brought history from the 1950 through today to life. Entering the 3rd Infiltration Tunnel was an unforgettable experience. Be aware that you walk down a 400 meter steep incline to reach the tunnel and then have to walk back up.

I recommend going on this tour. It would be better if they allowed you into an actual city in North Korea, but you still technically go into North Korea when you're at the JSP. Really cool seeing what is on TV pretty often, with a North Korean solider or two standing on their side.

My partner and I did the morning tour last week, and we most enjoyed it. Vincent our Korean tour guide was both very engaging and clearly cared a lot about his tour group and his country. Kudos to him! I would definitely recommend this tour. As a foreigner, it provided so much insight into the relationship between the two Koreas.... More

I went to DMZ tour through Koridoor tours. It was very cold day, but still intereseting to me. As a person who visited Korea hardly, I really recommend you to anyone especially for forienger visiting Korea for the first time. They should visit DMZ zone once in a life because you can learn and hear about current siutation of Korea... More

This stop was included in my trip to the JSA in Panmunjon. You can have a look through the spyglass to see a North Korean propaganda village. You can easily imagine all the artillery hidden in the forests and mountains.

the bus tour to DMZ is a worthwhile trip. It's an early start and they pick up more tourists before they head to the DMZ. The tour guide tells you enough about Korea and the relationship between the South and North. I thought I booked a tour for a full day with Pamunjom but it appeared that I only booked... More

About an hour by bus from Seoul, we used an organised bus tour. I went to the underground infiltration tunnel 3 which involves a steep downhill walk below ground to get to and then a difficult uphill walk of over 350m to get back out, not for the elderly or people with any physical difficulty. The day we went it... More

Curious about North Korea, a closed protected country. We decided to change our itinerary from Everland Theme Park to the DMZ tour. Reservation a must through an authorized agent in South Korea. It is good to book online days ahead - cheaper & ensure you get a full day tour that covers Panmunjeom (which we missed ). The tour covers... More

History at its best! My family and I learned a lot about the Korean war, how the super powers USA and USSR pitted the north and the South. My heart goes to those born in 1950, in Kaesong as this area was subjugated to North at that time.

Signed up for the full day tour with USO and it cost about $92. Overall it was an interesting experience and a great thing to do to get away from all the shopping in the city. The first stop was the 3rd tunnel and even though it was packed, it moved smoothly. Wear the hard hat, wear the hard hat!... More
