DMZ Tour from Seoul Including Dora Observatory
From US$40,00
The Demilitarized Zone is the heavily guarded border between South and North Korea: although a must-see, many first time visitors are often put off trying to visit by the mystery surrounding the area. This stress-free tour allows you to visit the DMZ and travel between key sites of interest with ease, as you gain insight into Korean War history with a guide. Plus, convenient hotel pickup means you won't waste time trying to find a start point.
What to Expect
Your morning starts with pickup from your Seoul hotel by coach or minivan. During the drive toward the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), pass sites of interest including Imjingak Pyeonghoa-Nuri Park and Mangbaedan—where North Koreans perform traditional rites on celebration days.

On arrival at the Demarcation Line, explore sites of interest including Freedom Bridge and the old Gyeongui train line. With your guide on hand, gain insight into Korean War history and learn of the area’s significance to Koreans on both sides of the border.

Take in key sites including the DMZ Theater and Exhibition Hall, the 3rd Infiltration Tunnel, and the Dora Observatory. Here, you can take in sweeping views across the DMZ and even catch glimpses of rural life in North Korea.

When your time at the DMZ comes to an end, return to central Seoul conclude your tour.
