This was a really good trip. The afternoon part to the JSA was the best as we actually got to go into North Korea. Great story to tell back at home and we even got our pictures taken. Definitely a once in a lifetime type of tour that I highly recommend!!!
Very interesting and well run tour. The guides were very well informed and engaging.
The afternoon part of the tour was more exciting than the morning part, which just went to the tunnel and the train station, and other places around the DMZ but not actually in it. However, the morning tour guide was better at providing context for what we were seeing. The trip to the JSA in the afternoon was thrilling! Definitely a bucket list day. I can't imagine passing this up on a visit to Seoul.
AWESOME TRIP. I 100 recommend booking the DMZ JSA tour. The JSA was a really unique place and really made it incredible... you'll definitely come out of it feeling like it was worth it. One of my favorite parts about visiting Korea. They give you access to the museum, one of the tunnels, and a full tour of the JSA. There is a dress code and code of conduct they take very seriously. Photography only allowed in limited areas -- they will let you know when and where you can and cannot take your selfies. Got to kinda walk into North Korea and it was sweet
Absolutely amazing tour. Worth every penny, this will be one of the things you do and remember for the rest of your life.
The whole experience was an amazing learning experience, and truly humbling, and creepy at the same time.
I would seriously recommend this tour to anyone.
The tour was amazing, fantastic service and brilliant commentary. Once in a life time opportunity. Highly Recommended to all!
The tour was an eye opener and the itinerary was pack with good sites to visit. The timing given for each site was too short though. Overall very impressive.
Both sessions were taken by two different guides, both very funny and knowledgeable. The experience is rather surreal, especially the afternoon session in Panmunjom. It is quite easy to see why the time you have in each area is limited when you are facing North Korean soldiers. Make sure and buy your souvenirs at the first/second stop as it gets more expensive, the further North you go. I was disappointed that you can no longer purchase North Korean beer, but the wine and brand will suffice. Don't bother spending lots of money on the soya chocolate recommended, any cheap chocolate in Seoul is better :.
amazing experience. This tour unlike some includes the JSA area which is really the highlight as right up at the North Korean border. Also incredible to go down into the tunnel. Quite a step climb down but this tour includes a ride both ways whereas many tour groups were having to do it on foot.
This tour was very exciting and informative as we learned about Korean Culture and the conflicts that separated the North from the South. The ability to stand on the line of South and North Korea was also very exhilarating as well. This tour was a must for my bucket list!
Well organized tour although a little fast paced. Would have liked the tour guide to give more historical data and stories.
Great experience to see the history and the reality of the only divided county in the world.
I have traveled a lot and this full day tour to the DMZ and the JSA was tops. Make sure to book early and go to the JMZ, its a must see. The tour guide was fluent in English and told great stories on the hour bus ride up and back.
We would definitely recommend this tour. It was great. We were glad we did this tour. The tour guides did a great job. We learned a lot. The lunch was great.
This was an excellent tour.
The guides were very good and in time.
The walk through the tunnel is exhausting. Take a bottle of water and sugar candy so that there is no problem.
There are places where you can sit down in the tunnel.
A very moving experience at one of the most volatile places on the planet. The tour was outstanding.
