What You Can Expect

Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) and JSA Panmunjom Tour from Seoul

Panmunjom Truce Village

After a hotel pickup in downtown Seoul, travel to the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), the world’s most protected border, dividing North and South Korea since the Korean War.
Visit Imjingak Park to see the artillery that was used during the Korean War. Walk to the Freedom Bridge and learn about the nearly 13,000 POWs who crossed it on their path to freedom in South Korea. See the Third Infiltration Tunnel, one of four known tunnels under the border between North Korea and South Korea.
At the DMZ Museum, take a look at the photographs and war artifacts on display. Then head to the Dora Observatory to look across the DMZ into North Korea and learn about life on the other side. After a stop at the restored Dorasan Station, the railway station that once connected North and South Korea, proceed to the Unification Village to see what life is like in this small farming community.
Stop for lunch a local restaurant before beginning the second half of the tour, the Joint Security Area (JSA) or Panmunjom, a former ‘truce village’ that is now used for diplomatic dialogue between North and South Korea.
Identifications will be verified at a checkpoint, then stop at Camp Bonifas, formerly a United Nations Command military post located 400 meters south of the DMZ. Here, enjoy a slideshow with historical facts about the JSA’s significance. 
Visit the Freedom House, a facility that functions as a liaison between North and South Korea, and finally, the Bridge of No Return, first used for POW exchanges in 1953.
The tour ends with a return trip to Seoul.

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.

This was a very good day inspire of the poor weather. I can highly recommend this if with the D M Z the traveler can include Panmunjon. Our morning guide was not great but it did not detract greatly from the overall tour.

The highlight of our Seoul trip. Both parts of the tour were great DMZ and JSA. We had an early tour pickup at hotel at 07:30 which seems like a negative, but the result was arriving at every spot along the tour before the crowds so we would leave when all the other buses arrived.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

This was a very interesting tour. We had 2 different guides for the DMZ and the JSA and neither spoke great English so it was difficult to understand the stories they were telling. The locations we were taken to were interesting and seeing the soldiers from North Korea close up made it very real.
