Selected this tour over others due to the responsiveness of staff to initial email inquires. The tour takes a half day (8:30am-2:30pm) and covers the basics of the JSA, including the ability to visit the conference room. For a more detailed overview of this historic area suggest a full day tour to cover the wider DMZ. Was a bit disappointed... More

We booked this tour a month in advance by mailing them scanned copy of our passports. The tour got approved in 3 days time but still they were unsure as it can be cancelled due to security reasons at the last moment. We reached Lotte Hotel on time and the bus which takes us to the full day (DMZ +... More

This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Korea. We booked our tour through ICSC and I think we made the best choice. Staff were very helpful and also had a good level of English. We booked before we left Australia and this was all handled by email in English and was easily completed. The tour office... More

Visiting the Panmunjeom is a must when you're in Seoul. ICSC's tour was well-organized but not really exceptional. Lunch was quite good. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly but her English was hard to follow. In addition, half the tour group were Japanese so there were always two languages going. But don't miss the NK experience whoever you... More

One of the main things I wanted to do whilst in Korea was to get to the JSA. We booked through the ICSC via email- an easy process. We had a knowledgeable tour guide with a great grasp of English. Stopping off for Korean food before heading to Freedom Bridge for half an hour. When we entered Camp Boniface we... More

This was my second time doing a DMZ tour. The first time I booked through the USO and was very, very impressed with that tour. When my friend came to visit me in Seoul I decided to book the Panmunjom tour through the ICSC instead. However, I was a bit disappointed in this tour compared to the one with USO.... More

This tour was the best part of my trip to Seoul. I went on the full day tour that stopped at Dorasan Station / Dora Observatory/ 3rd Infiltration Tunnel in the morning and Panmunjeom Joint Security Area in the afternoon. In the JSA there is a conference room that straddles the Military Demarcation Line between North and South Korea and... More

We had an enjoyable day at the DMZ - we did the full day tour for W120,000 which covered JSA (border) and the 3rd infiltration tunnel. You should do both of these - the tour fitted well together and we had tow good guides. This company seems to be cheaper than many of the other commercial ones.

Went on the DMZ tour while in Seoul, and I have to say it is a must do. Lots of great history and puts much of the current environment in perspective. It also is a reminder for those of us who don't live in this environment, that this fight is not over. A couple suggestions: 1) if you do the... More

We have a great time at the DMZ tour. We selected the combined tour for 120,000 and the tour was smooth and our guide was very informative. I've written a detailed blog about this experience here: http://twotravellingpassports.tumblr.com/post/42123334085/demilitarized-zone-dmz-tour-of-north-and-south-korea Highly recommended.
