Unfortunately we could not participate in the full tour route due to the JSA closure by the military, however I really enjoyed every minute of the tour. Our guide (SP) was really kind and helpful, told a lot of interesting stories and facts about the background of the Korean War

Dear Viktor Warm Greeting from Cosmojin Travel Agency. Thank you so much for taking the time to write your feedback ! We are glad that you enjoyed your tour despite the JSA's closing. SP is truly a great guide, full of interesting stories and who loves his job. Though the Korean Peninsula is divided into North & South, we hope that the 2 countries will be reunited one day. Regarding the JSA tour, May & June are definitely the best to travel Korea, and should be open at that time, please contact us. We hope to see you again next year ! Best regards, Cosmojin Travel Agency

I was booked to go on the JSA + DMZ Tour but on the day of pick up we were informed the DMZ has been closed for some time (the last few months) because of swine flu outbreak. So we were then everyone was scheduled to go on the NLL Special Military Tour which in my opinion isn't

Dear Keechy Warm Greeting from Cosmojin Travel Agency. Thank you so much for taking the time to write a comment. It is important to us ! We are glad that you enjoyed your tour thanks to your guide Mr. Han ! Indeed, due to the African Swine Flue, the DMZ + JSA tour was cancelled. The alternative tour to the Ganghwa Peace Observatory is the only place currently where you can see North Korea, and actually the real villages of North Korea (from the DMZ, it is actually propaganda villages). We are delighted that you enjoyed our Q&A with the North Korean Defector and hope that you learned more about North Korea. Regarding the price, the NLL tour with NK Defector price is indeed 65,000 KRW per person but the other person you mentioned made his booking through his hotel, and was offered a contracted price. We think that the tour will reopened, but the Korean Government just want to be sure that there is no other cases of African Swine Flu in the DMZ Area. Depending on people, some guests might still like to join the NLL tour, but of course it depends on everybody's taste ;-) We hope that you come back next year as surely the tour will resume ! Thank you again for your feedback and nice words about our agency. We would be more than happy to see you again and feel free to contact us again Have a great day ! Best regards, Cosmojin Team

When I booked my DMZ/JSA tour with Cosmojin, I was extremely clear that I was really only going to see the JSA and that if it was closed on the day of my booking I would want to reschedule. I heard rumors from other travellers that the entire DMZ was closed because of swine flu,

I am not a big fan of tours, but if you want to visit the DMZ and/or the JSA you have no choice, and I really want to visit both. I booked the CosmoJin tour and really enjoyed the experience. Highlights include the JSA, the Third Tunnel and the Observatory. The train station was
