What To Expect

You will be picked up at your hotel in Central Seoul or subway station then taken to Imjingak Park.

Once you arrive at the park, you can see the Freedom Bridge and an old steam train that shows the extremity of the tragedy that was the Korean War at Imjingak Park.

Then, the DMZ bus will head to the 3rd Tunnel that North Korean Army built to infiltrate South Korea in 1970s. You will walk down to the tunnel (about 500m, round trip) wearing a safety helmet. After coming out of tunnel, you will have some time to look around the DMZ Exhibition Hall which shows the Korean War, old weapons and Korea's history.

After the Exhibition Hall, you will head to Mt Dora to see North Korea from the Observatory. There are many telescopes to look at North Korea’s propaganda village.

Then you will move to Dorasan Station, the last station before entering North Korea from South Korea. You can get a stamp that resembles the immigration desk in the airport, as a souvenir (You will not be entering North Korea).


On the way back to Imjingak Park, your vehicle will pass by the Unification Village before heading back to Seoul.

Once you return to Seoul, you will stop-by a Korean Ginseng Center (skip if you choose "without shopping tour" option).

6 hours • Admission Ticket Included

The War Memorial of Korea
Once you return to Seoul, you will have a lunch of local Korean cuisine.

After lunch, you will visit the War Memorial of Korea where you can explore for about two hours around the 6 individual exhibition halls and the outdoor exhibition area. You will see over 10,000 artifacts to remember the Korean War in the indoor and outdoor areas.

At the end of the tour, you will be dropped off at the City Hall around 4:30 pm.

Crystal was fantastic! Super friendly and had so much knowledge on everything. The DMZ was great wish there was more time at the stops to take everything in
Great, informative experience

Young was our tour guide and he was great. He provided a lot of knowledge and insight about the DMZ and the Korean War. He was super nice and funny. We did the full day tour which only included us and one other couple. So, the 5 of went to a local Korean restaurant and had lunch together. There, we were able to get to know each other a little better. The tour was informative and Young was wonderful!
Good tour, some differences from the description
Thuy_H, 20-10-2022
Overall the tour was good, but it could have been better if the timing was more thought out and it was described more accurately. For context, I purchased the full day tour which includes the visit to the War Memorial.

First, the tour began much later than I expected (8am pickup vs the 6:30am mentioned in the description). We ended up visiting the actual DMZ at 12pm and leaving around 3pm. Thus, we only really had about an hour to visit the War Memorial.

Additionally, I did not know the tour guide was going to walk us through the Korean War exhibit in the War Memorial either. While this could be a nice experience for some, I personally like to explore and learn at museums on my own and at my own pace. This further reduced the amount of time we had at the museum.

Lastly, the lunch was at the Imjingak Tourist Center instead of Seoul as stated in the description. This is not as big of a deal, but if I had known we would have had available food options and enough time to eat by ourselves, I wouldn’t have thought that lunch being included in the full day tour was as important.

Overall, I’m not sure the full day tour was exactly worth it. I would just go with the regular length.
