  • Seoul: South Korea Demilitarized Zone Half & Full Day Tour

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

    Depart Seoul and journey to one of the most unusual tourist destinations in the world at the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) on the border of South and North Korea. Created by the Korean Armistice Agreements of July 27, 1953, the 155-mile long military demarcation line (MDL) has a 2-kilometer wide demilitarized zone on each side. Your first stop is Ganghwa Peace Observatory, where you can have the closest and most clear look at North Korean farmlands. Walk around rather untouched paths, enclosed by barbed wires and stop by at 6.25 Veterans Memorial Park where you can learn about the tragic history of Korean War. Close your eyes and take a moment to think about their sacrifices. Later, travel to Imjingak Park, a part of Paju DMZ, where many statues and monuments regarding the Korean War can be seen. Discover the Bridge of Freedom used by repatriated POWs and soldiers. At the end of the ...

  • From Seoul: Half-Day Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) Tour

    2. From Seoul: Half-Day Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) Tour

    After an early-morning pick-up in Seoul, head off to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), the strip of land between North and South Korea representative of the decades-long conflict on the peninsula. Your first destination will be Imjingpak Park, situated only 7 km from the Demarcation Line, and built in remembrance of the Korean War and in the hopes of reunification of the peninsula. Visit its observatory, monuments, and the Freedom Bridge, which was used to transport 13,000 prisoners home after the war. Then, visit the Third Infiltration Tunnel, discovered in 1978, an incomplete tunnel built by North Korea into the South. Discovered after a tip-off from a North Korean defector, the tunnel was denounced by the UN as an act of aggression by North Korea - it had reached only 44 km away from the city of Seoul. Descend into history as you explore the tunnel yourself! You can also visit Dora Obser...

    Very informative and interesting tour. The tour company, and Amy in particular, was very helpful after out trip got rescheduled due to coronavirus and lack of people signed up for our slot, and were very helpful when we had difficulties organising a collection point. Our actual tour guide for the trip, Ko, was great. The tour was well organised, and she helped us understand the historical and cultural significance of what we were seeing, and was very humorous throughout it.

I would recommend this tour. The female guide was very dedicated, informative and friendly. Even though I couldn't understand everything all the time I still learned something new. There were 3 stops and you always had like 10-15 minutes for yourself which were more than enough for me. So, if your are in Seoul you should visit the DMZ.

Had an awesome experience! Ko was a wonderful tour guide and the local support staff were very helpful setting up my tour. Would definitely recommend.
