Visiting the JSA is truly a must when visiting South Korea. I took the tour of the DMZ, JSA, and the 3rd Tunnel with Koridoor. Koridoor is one of only a few companies that has tours to the JSA.
My Koridoor tour guide was Vincent, who also was the individual I corresponded with before my tour in October. Vincent was an interesting tour guide who provided many stories about North and South Korea. Vincent also spoke good English, which was easy to understand on the loud speaker of the bus.
The highlight of the tour was the JSA. Now unfortunately the military escort who was our tour guide of the JSA was extremely poor. He provided next to no information. A few people on the bus who had previously taken the tour also noted they felt the JSA tour guide was poor. This is just the luck of the draw and does not reflect on the Koridoor tour guide. Even though the US Military escort was poor, the JSA is absolutely fascinating. Being able to technically "step" into North Korea is incredible.
Now I do agree with other reviews about concerns over payment. The only way to reserve the tour was by paying for it in the most outdated way. I ended up having to provide my credit card information via email, which is just not secure. In this day and age, especially in South Korea, please use a secure system of payment (Paypal would be better than nothing!).
Another comment was the amount of people on the tour. The tour was crammed with not a seat to spare on the bus. Koridoor could easily have 4 to 6 less people on the tour, which would make the bus experience just a little better.
