Full Day Korean DMZ Tour including the War Memorial of Korea

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    After morning pickup at your Seoul accommodation, travel in a climate-controlled coach to reach Imjingak Park.

    Upon arrival, view the Freedom Bridge and old steam trains as you learn from your guide about the Korean War. Next, drive to the 3rd Tunnel, which the North Korean Army built in the 1970s to infiltrate South Korea. Disembark and follow your guide into the tunnel on foot to see it up close.

    After visiting the tunnel, take time to view the exhibits in the DMZ Exhibition Hall, such as displays of old weapons and a film that details the history of Korea. 

    Continue to the observatory at Mt Dora to see North Korea through telescopes that are trained on North Korea’s propaganda village just over the border. 

    Go to Dorasan Station, the final station in South Korea before entering North Korea. As a souvenir, receive a stamp that resembles the immigration desk in the airport (you will not enter North Korea). 

    Pass by the Unification Village on the way back to Imjingak Park, and hear from your guide how people wish for the reunification of the two Koreas.

    Head back to Seoul and stop at a ginseng center before having a lunch of Korean fare. After lunch, visit the War Memorial of Korea, which holds more than 10,000 artifacts. Have two hours to make your way through the six exhibition halls and the outdoor exhibition area.

    Your tour ends with drop-off at Itaewon or City Hall.
