DMZ Past and Present: Korean Demilitarized Zone Tour from Seoul

After a hotel pickup in downtown Seoul, travel to the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), the world’s most protected border, dividing North and South Korea since the Korean War.

Visit Imjingak Park to see the artillery that was used during the Korean War. Walk to the Freedom Bridge and learn about the nearly 13,000 POWs who crossed it on their path to freedom in South Korea. See the Third Infiltration Tunnel, one of four known tunnels under the border between North Korea and South Korea.

At the DMZ Museum, take a look at the photographs and war artifacts on display. Then head to the Dora Observatory to look across the DMZ into North Korea and learn about life on the other side. After a stop at the restored Dorasan Station, the railway station that once connected North and South Korea, proceed to the Unification Village to see what life is like in this small farming community.

Proceed to the Amethyst Factory or Ginseng Center before returning to Seoul City Hall.

For those on the morning or afternoon tour only, travel back to Seoul at this point. Those who selected the morning tour with lunch will stop at a local restaurant before returning to Seoul.

With the full-day tour option, enjoy lunch, then visit Insadong Antique Market, one of the most memorable attractions in Seoul, representing the focal point of Korean traditional culture and crafts.

The tour ends with a return trip to Seoul.

Great tour. I loved our tour guide, Sunny Lee. She was very knowledgeable and extremely nice and accommodating. She helped us to find our way to a destination upon the end of our tour by pointing us in the right direction and writing directions in Korean for any taxi driver or train information person that we may need.

Rebecca was enthusiastic and spoke English very well. She was funny, knowledgeable and pleasant from start to end. The tour was very interesting. Be sure to buy REAL North Korean grape wine at the Train Station souvenir shop. That is the only place on the trip where you can buy anything from North Korea!

Very good tour!! Tour guide was engaging and personable. If you suffer from claustrophobia, have difficulty walking or are generally unfit you may struggle going into the tunnel as there is a steep incline and the tunnel itself is confined. Otherwise I recommend as a must do!!

The tour was very informative and well-paced. The places we visited were very interesting and relevant to the history of Seoul. In just half a day, we learned so much about the country. Sunny was simply amazing--knowledgeable and entertaining at the same time (she and #39;s exactly what her name means!).
