    Stop: 6 hours
    Since 1953, Korea has been divided into two separate countries, now known as South and North Korea. North Korea has become a more of closed off country with widespread poverty and ever- lasting dictatorship while South Korea has been continuously developing as one of the leading countries economically, sharing its culture with the rest of the world. The DMZ area is the only place that you can see the reality of the most divided nations in the world. This tour includes an entry to the most tensed military zone in the world, tour guides who are designated and certified by Korean Army, shuttle bus, and entrance fees to venue that help you explore and understand the history of war and the current situations between these two countries whilst other so called “Big Dogs” have very close eyes on the Korean Peninsula. You will also appreciate the fact that our North Korean defector will give you vivid information on North Korea that you would’ve never heard before, and get a chance to ask questions you would always want to ask when facing a real North Korean. They will also let you know the difference living in both South and North Korea in which might shock you and appreciate what you have around you. The most visited and richly educative places within this DMZ tour include the Third Tunnel Experience, which was designed to invade South Korea by tanks, the observatory where you can view North Korean residents, the War History Pavilion, and Imjingak.

Took 1/2 day DMZ tour (booked on viatour). A must do. Third tunnel was a highlight. Our guide SP Hong was excellent! Super informative, lovely person, and overall excellent. Went so far at the end of the tour to walk us inside the subway to teach us how to use the ticket

Great organization from the admin staff all the way to the tour guide and drivers. The dmz was closed because of the swine flu but the alternative tour was actually amazing. You get a better view into North Korea from the NLL and it was fascinating to also hear from a North

Dear Guest Warm Greeting from Cosmojin Travel Agency. Thank you for your feedback ! We are delighted that you enjoyed your tour and our guide Mr. Han. Mr. Han is a very knowledgeable guide who loves his job. The 3rd tunnel demands a little bit of fitness on the way back, good shoes are always recommended to wear. We hope you will come back another time to visit the JSA ! Have a great day
