DMZ Half-day Tour From Seoul

What To Expect

The Korea Demilitarised Zone separating North Korea and South Korea is an extraordinary place unlike anywhere else on earth. After hotel pickup in Seoul, your tour starts with the drive to Imjingak Park to see the Freedom Bridge, a symbol of the tragedies of the Korean War.

Then head toward the Korean Demilitarized Zone to visit the 3rd Infiltration Tunnel, which the North Korean Army used to infiltrate South Korea. With a provided helmet, you can walk down to the tunnel, and then you'll have time to browse the DMZ Exhibition Hall to see displays of old weapons, a short film about Korea's history, and other information about the Korean War.

Next, visit the Dora Observatory for a view of North Korea, which you can see using the onsite telescopes aimed at the propaganda village, and then continue to Dorasan Station, the last station before the border with North Korea, where you can get a souvenir stamp that mimics an immigration stamp.

Make your way back to Seoul at this point, passing by Unification Village and getting dropped off at Seoul City Hall, where your tour ends.

It was a very intersting trip. You can really get a feeling for the situation, when you see over the DMZ and visit the deserted train station. The tunnel was quite impressive as you really had to duck to go through. I hit my head several times, but the hard hat did its job.

The tour was interesting, but a little rushed. But I guess that's to be expected since it's a half-day tour. Our guide was really friendly and accommodating. She was also knowledgeable and always ready to answer questions. She made everyone feel relaxed.
