    The tour guide Dora for DMZ tour was very good. She provided sufficient information throughout the bus ride. Although at some spots it can get a little rush but overall it was a good experience. The JSA tour was excellent and the coach for that tour was much better than the DMZ one.

What To Expect

Whether or not you're a fan of history and politics, a visit to the border territory between North and South Korea is an eye-opening experience. You'll travel to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), a buffer between the two sides, and explore historic sites including Imjingak Park, the Freedom Bridge and the secretly dug 3rd Infiltration Tunnel. After stopping for a local lunch, you'll be escorted through the checkpoint at Panmunjom (officially known as the Joint Security Area (JSA)), a supposedly neutral zone in times of war where the two sides met. Here you'll visit Freedom House and learn about the Bridge of No Return and the Ax Murder Incident, at which point you'll be able to say you have technically entered North Korea! Even if you currently feel like you lack knowledge on the subject, you'll be an expert after taking this tour.

    A must-see destination and must-do experience in Korea! Great to include this on my ultimate travel bucket list! Thanks Klook!
  • Regina Agnes 30 Aug 2018
    Worth the money! All history buffs should take this tour. Very convenient, well-organized and safe. The tunnel hike was the highlight of the DMZ tour for sure. A great experience! Make sure to take only the essentials on this tour and have your passport with you. You cant take your bags on the Panmunjom tour and will have to leave it in the first bus. Wear something with lots of pockets where you can store your wallet, passport and other valuables. Have your cameras ready during the Panmunjom tour as there's a limited time to take photos. Seeing North Korea up close gave me goosebumps. Highly recommended!

    I heard a lot of good review about dmz and panmunjom and am glad that I brought this tour. The pick up was on time and everything went smoothly. I would recommend this tour as it is a significant part of Korea. The experience is priceless though the tour was quite brief. Thank you Klook.

    Our Panmunjon trip got cancelled but Klook inform us ahead of time that’s why we are able to rearrange and refund our payment for the trip. The DMZ trip was very educational. Tourist guide is very helpful and always has information ready regarding the place.

    All in All, I would say that the DMZ and JSA tours are worth the time and money. I especially enjoyed: Imjingak Park, Dora Observatory, Dorasan Station, and the JSA Tour (We did not see Bridge of No Return nor Ax Murder Incident Site as the itinerary states). I would not go down to The 3rd Infiltration Tunnel again and would not suggest it. It is a long walk down and longer walk back up, and a long walk crouched over (I am 6'3") in the tunnel just to see a cement wall. I had some mishaps with my tour that I am sure are not the norm. Just prior to lunch I had to switch groups from the DMZ Tour to the JSA Tour and it was not handled well. It was done at the Imjingak Park and I was told to wait on the bus by the guide until she took me to the other group but by then, I did not have much time to look around there (it is a beautiful park with several monuments and a great old steam train). Lunch was ok, it was Bulgogi. Then at the end of the day, I was not dropped off at Lotte Hotel like my itinerary said (which would have been very convenient and what I had planned on) but at the City Hall instead. Kind of a surprise. Made for a considerable walk back to my hotel with out the best directions.

    We were very near to North Korea and we get to enter the Blue House. However, the trip can be quite short but understand it is due to the restrictions. Overall, a very good experience!
  • huifang 18 Aug 2018
    We had a Great experiences ! Klook is very responsive. Tour guide is very informative. We learnt a lot of the history of DMZ .
  • Shuen Hwee 8 Aug 2018
    The DMZ tour portion is very rushed as there is a time limit. For JSA tour, we did not get to visit the bridge of no return and the ax murder incident due to security reasons. The tour was overall informative and exciting! Definitely worth!
