Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: DMZ, Munsan-eup, Majeong-ri Imjingak Tourist information center, Paju, Gyeonggi-do South Korea

After pickup at your Seoul hotel in the morning or afternoon, drive to the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). En route, your guide shares expert commentary on the dividing line between North and South Korea.
Get out at Imjingak Park along the banks of Imjin River to see artillery and war artifacts that were used during the Korean conflict before proceeding to Freedom bridge, where nearly 13,000 Korean POWs crossed on their return back home to South Korea.
Reboard the coach and head to the 3rd Infiltration Tunnel, located beneath the border of North Korea and South Korea. See where the South Koreans have blocked the actual Military Demarcation Line with concrete barricades, and browse photographs and war artifacts at the DMZ exhibition hall.
Your next stop is Dora Observatory, where you can use binoculars to get a glimpse of North Korea. Listen to your guide explain daily life in the village of Kijongdong across the river.
Continue by coach to Dorasan Station, a historic spot that not only marks the division, but also serves as a gateway for exchanges between the north and south. Pass by the Unification Village, a small farming community that specialized in creating soybean milk, traditional soy sauce and corn goods.
Where the tour ends depends on what option you select. If you choose the morning tour or afternoon tour only, you’ll end back in Seoul at City Hall after a stop at a ginseng center. If you’ve selected to upgrade a morning tour with lunch, you’ll head to a local restaurant in Seoul after you go to the ginseng center. On the full-day tour, experience the same itinerary to the DMZ followed by lunch, and then head to Insadong Antique Market. Once the largest market for antiques and artworks in Korea, Insadong offers a selection of shops, crafts and bargains. Ask your guide to help you shop for that perfect souvenir before you’re dropped off at your hotel.

Incredible tour! The tour guide is military, so he knew how to explain very well about all the places we went, he is friendly and he was in a very good mood.
One of the places we were going to was closed, but the guide soon gave us options of places we could go so that the tour would not be harmed.

We weren't able to see the actual DMZ, because of the African swine fever. The company had an alternative, of viewing sights near the border, which was interesting. We even got to see across the North Korea.
