Seoul: South Korea Demilitarized Zone Half & Full Day Tour

1. Seoul: South Korea Demilitarized Zone Half & Full Day Tour

Journey to one of the most meaningful tourist destinations in the world at the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) on the border of South and North Korea. Gain an understanding of Korean history and culture. First, visit Imjingak Park. See the Bridge of Freedom, used by prisoners of war who were repatriated from the North. Next, head to the 3rd Infiltration Tunnel, an incomplete passage built by North Korea that runs under the Demilitarized Zone. Discovered in 1978, the tunnel passes through bedrock 240 feet (73 m) below ground. Go inside the tunnel on foot. Once you're back on the surface, go up the slopes of Mount Dora for a look across the country from the Dora Observatory. In good weather, see all the way to North Korea without using the observatory's telescope. Look out at the 2.4-mile (4 km) stretch of the DMZ that has divided Korea since 1953. The last stop will be Unification Village, located near the DMZ in South Korea. Browse a variety of souvenirs and items that reflect the theme of peace and reconciliation. They often have goods from North Korea too. Pick the great souvenirs and snacks before you return to Seoul. Finally, conclude the tour with a drop-off at either Myeongdong or City hall station, depending on your preference. Enhance the experience with an optional shooting range add-on. After returning to Seoul, visit an indoor shooting range and practice your shooting skills. If a full day option is selected, you will have a lunch from authentic Korean restaurant, and have a tour of Gyeongbokgung palace and Insadong. You can learn more from your guide while you are walking the palace and enjoy the beauty of Josun. *Arrival time to Seoul can be different depending on the number of tourists and traffic on the day.

We had such a fun trip, our tour guide was so entertaining and made learning about history that much for fun for me. It was a saddening history but the way she portrayed it was both respectful and comedic at the same time. All in all it was a wonderful experience and will definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to try the dmz tour.

Everything was well arranged and the guide was excellent. She is really good at storytelling and keeping the crowd's attention. Even though we had a rainy and cloudy day, she managed to keep us happy during the tour. This is a must do activity when you are in Seoul!

Excellent guide to all you need to know about the DMZ. Jung was affable, organized and great at laying out a history of the the two Koreas. Witty, charming and exceptionally reliable. I would go back again. It is money well spent -more than worth it! Go!

Extra darauf geachtet das wir pünktlich sind um auch in alle Zonen zu kommen, welche gerade möglich sind. Die Führung war freundlich und informativ

our Guide Ms. Jung was very knowledgeable and gave us all the right information to enjoy the tour to DMZ.
