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.
This was our best activity in Seoul
DMZ is great but spend the afternoon doing the JSA portion. Very interesting and meaningful.
This tour was the highlight of our trip to ROK. We highly recommend this tour as it provided us with more insight and understanding of the history and relationship between South Korea and North Korea. The trip to JSA was the most interesting as you are literally standing in the North Korean side of the Demilitarized Zone. We can even hear the music propaganda of North Korea which they play 24/7. The UN soldier who gave us a briefing was very thorough. Both our guides for the DMZ and JSA tours were very good.
Fantastic experience, especially the eerie JSA part of the tour. Food at lunch was terrible though.
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.
