What You Can Expect
Stop first in Imjingak, a park located in the banks of Imjin River where you’ll see artillery and war artifacts that were used during the Korean conflict. Proceed to Freedom Bridge, crossed by nearly 13,000 Korean POWs on their return back to freedom. As you explore by foot, learn from your guide about the powerful significance of this bridge.
Re-board the coach and head to the 3rd Infiltration Tunnel, located beneath the border of North Korea and South Korea. Here, learn about the role of these tunnels, which are believed to have been planned as a military invasion route by North Korea. See where the South Koreans have blocked the actual Military Demarcation Line with concrete barricades.
Continue to the DMZ exhibition hall to browse photographs and war artifacts. This hall now stands as a symbol of peace – an attempt to mend the damages wrought by Korea's history.
You’ll then be taken to the Dora Observatory, where you can use binoculars to scope out North Korea. Listen to your guide explain the lifestyle across the river as you observe the village of Kijongdong.
Next, head to Dorasan Station, a historic and symbolic spot that marks both the division and a gateway of exchanges between the north and the south. Proceed to the Unification Village to observe the daily life of this small farming community, which specialized in creating soybean milk, traditional soy sauce and corn goods.
If you choose the morning tour or afternoon tour only, you’ll end back in Seoul at Itaewon or City Hall. If you choose the morning tour with lunch, you’ll stop first at a local restaurant for lunch.
If you choose the full-day tour, you’ll enjoy lunch and then head to Insadong Antique Market, which was once the largest market for antiques and artworks in Korea. Browse the various shops, peruse crafts and bargain for that perfect souvenir with the help of your guide. Your tour will end here.
The guide was vibrant, informative and cheerful. Highly recommend, only negative was maybe a extra 10-15 min where the buses change, seem a so much to see but only 10 min
Awesome!! Quite an experience. The tour guide is so nice. She helped us a lot and make sure we are taken care off until we go back to our hotel. However, if you are more than 175cm tall and have back problem, I suggest you not to go down to the the tunnel. Its quite a heavy climb.
