1. From Seoul: DMZ Guided Tour
With this tour, you will be able to meet and talk to North Korean defectors who have successfully settled in South Korea and can provide a more realistic and accurate picture of North Korean life. On the way to and from the DMZ and at each stop within the DMZ, you will hear from the North Korean defector and the tour guide about the reality of North Korea and two perspectives coming from two Koreas regarding the tragic Korean War. Bring insightful questions to ask the defector about North Korean life, the whole journey to come to South Korea, and other factors about Korean history. At the end of the journey, have some tea and ginseng product tasting at Ginseng center while asking even more questions to your tour guide and North Korean defector about your tour and things that you were curious about. If you select the lunch option, try Bibimbap, a traditional Korean dish with rice and various ingredients, or North Korean-style cold noodles, a traditional North Korean dish that was offered for both Korean leaders in the recent summit. You will head back to Seoul, near the City Hall, at around 1:00-2:00 PM depending on your selected option and the traffic.
