Once you are on the north side of the building, you are technically in North Korea! You’ll be able to take a picture of Bridge of No Return and learn all the thrilling stories from your local guide.
A LOT OF HYPE ABOUT THIS AND NOT AS NERVE AWAKENING AS ONE MAY BELIEVE.
David Kang was an excellent tour guide for the DMZ and provided a lot of interesting personal insights. The JSA Panmunjom guide was not quite as good but the experience itself of being there was memorable.
Excellent. All day trip was great fun. Very nice tour director. Tunnel almost better than the the JSA.
An amazing experience. The tour guide for the DMZ portion was more fluent in English but you have to do the JSA section to get the full experience. Highly recommend.
Very interesting tour and experience. The tension felt in DMZ border was incredible. I recommend this trip to everyone visiting South Korea.
It was clearly the best part of our trip. Im SO glad that we did it with the JSA part too and not just the DMZ. The DMZ and the JSA tour are led by two different companies and so also have different guides for the parts. The lunch is served at a diner in the middle of nowhere and it was not that great. You dont get to decide what you are going to eat and the place was a bit boring. The guide for the DMZ was great! She was very knowledgeable and spoke good english and made the whole tour a great experience. The guide for the JSA part of the tour was not good at all. His english was poor and barely understandable even when he repeted the same instructions several times because no one understood. The organisation on the JSA part of the tour was overall messy and confusing but the destination was worth it!
Fascinating, intriguing and a glimpse into another world. This is the second time that I have done the tour from the southern side. You will learn much about the history of the Korean War and division of the Korean peninsula from the South Korean perspective. You will be taken right to the border with the North and hear stories of sadness but also hope. This tour should be on the 'to do' list for anyone visiting Seoul. Remember to book in advance. Do not miss out.
Very well organized. It's a unique experience to look over North Korea from the south without entering the country.
I highly recommend JSA area. You can really feel the tension between South and North.
I don't really recommend 3rd tunnel. it's basically a tunnel. it's really a long walk.
It was very well planned. Our tour guide, Justin was well informed and conducted the tour in a very professional manner. It started on time and we were back also well on time with no delays. I am very glad I did this trip and had an amazing experience.
