Complete your experience of the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) with a JSA tour from Seoul. Joint Security Area (JSA) tours will take you to the heavily guarded portion of the DMZ where North and South Korean forces stand face-to-face, and the only spot where you can stand in North Korea. Book a DMZ and JSA tour on VELTRA to see highlights of the Korean DMZ and the restricted Joint Security Area (Panmunjom) in one full day itinerary. VELTRA is partnered with licensed UNCMAC companies.
Please Note
In light of the ongoing talks between North Korea and South Korea, the JSA is often closed by the United Nations Command (UNC) due to military activities. At the event of a cancellation, visitors will be given an option to take a DMZ tour with partial refund for the JSA portion or a complete refund. DMZ and 3rd Tunnel tours are almost always available.

History
After the Korean War, South Korea and North Korea established a border that divided the Korean peninsula roughly in half. Stretching for 2 km on either side of this contended border is the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). One of the last relics of the Cold War, the DMZ attracts a great deal of public interest and is a must-see for travelers visiting Korea. Visit historic relics pertaining to the Korean War and find monuments and memorials for peace. Have a chance to enter the 3rd Infiltration Tunnel. Peek into North Korea from the Dora Observatory. Stand on North Korea at the JSA. Feel the palpable tension between these two nations and their ongoing dialogue towards peace, and witness modern history in the making.

Highlights of the DMZ and JSA Tour from Seoul
Imjingak Park, 3rd Tunnel (Third Tunnel of Aggression), Dora Observatory, Dorasan Station, Joint Security Area (Military Armistice Commission Conference Room, Freedom House, Peace House, Blue Bridge, Moon Jae In and Kim Jong Un Signature Stone)

We decided to still join the DMZ tour after JSA was cancelled and I'm glad we did. The cancellation is very random and not the tour operator's fault so we totally understand that. We were informed a week before about the... more
