Informative, beautiful and well organised tour. JSA and Panmunjom is a must.

The most interesting parts of this tour are only allowed to a few tourist companies, as in this case. There're reasons for this. The special conditions of the DMZ demand a very professional way of managing the tourism. This people know how to do it. Although it isn't the cheapest activity, the value is good. There, you can almost smell the war but also hope. I'd recommend this visit to anybody interested in Politics and History.
By the way, I was a bit afraid about the recently bulldozed areas. The only reason I could imagine was to make more difficult the stealth approximation from North Korea. I wondered if the tension in the border were higher than you could see in the news. A week later was informed that president Trump had been cancelled a surprise trip to the area cause of the fog. The vegetations cleaning had been made thinking in Trump.

Phenomenal experience. Knowledgeable guide who made sure we got to see and experience everything. The lunch at a local restaurant was a big plus, but the whole tour was great. You get to do everything on the DMZ bucket list.

This was an excellent tour. My son and I enjoyed the tour a lot. We a an American Army soldier as our guide once we got to the JSA and he was very informative. We did not see any North Korean guards while we were there. It was a very informative trip.

Excellent tour guide. Coming from a country with no conflict it was interesting to hear the struggles. Also the tour to Panmunjom is very regimented. The UN police officer was very knowledgeable. Great sites to be seen too

Fantastic tour! It was a very informative tour, with so many things to see. We were able to visit the JSA, which was the highlight of the trip for me, but everything else on the tour was fantastic. I'd take the tour again. The only downside was that it was a bit hazy/foggy that day, so visibility was limited. Otherwise, I can't recommend it enough. Also, please listen to your military tour guides, when they tell you no photos, please don't make it awkward for everyone else and start taking pictures. Definitely plenty of chances to take pictures around the JSA and DMZ.

Excellent day trip! A packed day with plenty to see, and very well-organised considering the guides are in charge of a large number of people, often with separate schedules. A fascinating tour from start to finish!

The pick-up service was great. Our guides were very competent and the whole tour was well orchestrated. Furthermore the soldiers at the JSA were really friendly and willing to take questions. The JSA is by far the best part of the tour, but the other sites are good as well - Dora Observatory for example.

The tour was very accommodating, instead of a hotel, they picked us up outside of Hongik University station since we stayed in an Airbnb in the Hongdae area. David Kang our tour guide was very informative, entertaining, and friendly He was only with us for the first half of the trip, the DMZ, but it was a great experience. The second half was very exciting, you could really feel the tension of the Korean conflict as you enter camp Bonifas and subsequently Panmunjom. We had joined another group for this part of the tour, and we didn't catch our guide's name, but she was also very knowledgeable, engaging, and enthusiastic. I highly recommend doing both the DMZ and the JSA, can't miss out on learning about such an integral part of Korean history.

The DMZ tour was super cool. If you go be sure to take the full day tour including the JSA.

This was the second time I've visited the JSA area and was taking my 19 year old American great nephew to see. It was very beneficial for him to visit this highly militarized area and feel the tension and potential for conflict in this area.

Yes! Do it! Don't be afraid. It was eye opening to speak with the uniformed personnel at these sites. I learned so much and would highly recommend this tour to anyone!

Pickup straight from my hotel was very convenient. Be prepared to surrender your passports but once the tour gets underway it's great! Very informative with sights and sounds and the chance to ask questions of not only the tour guide but also the American soldiers present for part of the tour. Touristic highlight of my Seoul trip!

Soojin was great and we learned a lot on this tour and had a lot of fun. She's very clear in her instructions so the entire tour can go as smoothly as possible. We also got to check out Dorasan station which is the last train station in South Korea that can potentially head to Pyongyang. Soojin was able to convince the employees to let us check out the out door area when they initially wouldn't let us go through. Highly recommend while you still have the opportunity!

Spend the extra money to include the JSA. It was the best part of the tour! You are able to see the infamous building where talks with North Korea happen as well as see North Korean soldiers.

The ironically-named DMZ is utterly fascinating, not a place where you want to put a foot wrong. We had a very interesting tour-guide with lots of experience. Lunch was very tasty even if this late-middle aged man had some issues getting down on the floor to sit and eat, and then back up again! The border itself was tense, exciting, and palpably fraught. Every decision-maker around issues related to this part of the world should experience it.

Going all the way to JSA and you will be able to see the North Korean soldier on the other side. It's such an amazing trip!

We were picked up on time and transferred to larger coaches, everything was well run seats allocated bus numbers. Jenny was our tour guide, excellent well organized and kept us informed all the way. Both the DMZ and JSA were amazing, the tunnel was excellent, and the explanations for the entire day were spot on, Very informative and interesting. Lunch was lovely, the entire tour ran very well. Well worth doing.

Enjoyed the discussions of the history of the place. A little daunting given the current situation. Guide was excellent. Opt for the JSA for sure.

Great, interesting experience - honourable mentions to my man who: fell over on the bus, incorrectly stamp his passport at a defunct station, get lost down the tunnel and best of all not pay the extra few for the JSA tour which he reckoned wasn't worth it!! Idiot yeah! That's the best bit

Well organised, tasty lunch, informative but relaxed, would rated 100/100
