This was the site of talks and negotiation between the two sides during the Korean wars. You'll visit the historical war monuments at Unification Park before a Korean restaurant lunch, after which you'll enter the JSA, accompanied by the expert knowledge of your guide. Visit Freedom House and the Conference room, site of various inter-Korean discussions, agreements and exchanges. The Bridge of No Return is next on the itinerary, the location of many POW exchanges, before a visit to the site of 1976's tragic Ax Murder Incident.

Might be cheaper to buy at the shop, due to currency conversion. The pick up was in front of Hongik University station, then we were transferred to Hotel President to take a coach. The tour was a bit rush, about 5 minutes only at each of the attractions,it was expected as instructed by JSA. Unforgettable experience though.
This tour provided us with the opportunity to get a glimpse and an insight into the elusive North Korea. We was able to talk to someone who had managed to escape from North Korea and also see into some village life by looking through the binoculars at the observatory. Highly recommended.
"One of the most dangerous places on Earth." The tour is absolutely worth doing and takes you (technically) onto North Korean soil. You also get a great historical overview as well as some vantage point looks into North Korean cities. It is surreal to see N.K. guards changing just a couple hundred meters away from you.
