Full description

Uncover the story of North and South Korea on a shared or private day trip to the Demilitarized Zone from Seoul. See highlights like the Peace Train, Bridge of Freedom, and Third Tunnel of Aggression. Add a gondola ride to your tour to see the DMZ from above.

After meeting your guide at one of the meeting points at Seoul's downtown metro stations or following pickup (private options only), travel in comfort aboard a climate-controlled bus to Imjingak Park in Paju.

Follow your guide to see DMZ and war-related monuments, including the famous Peace Train and the Bridge of Freedom which links the two Koreas. Continue to the 3rd Infiltration Tunnel (Third Tunnel of Aggression), one of four known tunnels under the border between the Koreas. 

Learn about how the tunnel was built for a surprise attack from the North to the South and was discovered by accident. Hear about the innovation of North Korea before making your way to the DMZ Theater & Exhibition Hall to find out more about this tunnel and the stories of the two Koreas.

Travel to the top of Mt. Dora for a visit to the Dora Observatory. Take in the scenic view across the Demilitarized Zone and see the North Korean propaganda village and Korea's ancient capital, Kaesong.

Pass by the Unification Village (Tongil Chon), where civilians still live to this day. Select the Peace Gondola add-on for unparalleled views of North Korea and the U.S. Military Camp Greaves. Return to your meeting or pickup point at the end of your tour.

Schöne Halbtagestour. Aufgrund Covid 19 und der anhaltenden Spannungen war die JSA leider geschlossen, soll aber ab April wieder öffnen.
