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 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 a brief film about 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.

I think visiting the DMZ is an absolute must do from Seoul. Tour guide Erica was excellent.

What an amazing day! Even my 3 teenage daughters thoroughly enjoyed it. The tour guide was lovely and friendly sharing her knowledge of the history between Nth and Sth Korea. The 3rd tunnel was the highlight of the tour - a great cardio workout! Lots of photo and shopping opportunities. It was an hours drive to the checkpoint which gave you an insight to the landscape along the way. You stayed at the various locations for a set time, which was enough time to explore, and before you knew it was an hours drive back to Seoul.
This was a fantastic tour and would highly recommend it for anyone visiting.

The tour was amazing and very interesting. Tour guide Emily was really good and took care all of us in the tour group. She is very helpful and very knowledgeable. The third tunnel waling was a good exercise.

The tour was very well organized. Exceeded my expectations. Saw relevant sites in DMZ. Hotel pick up was a plus. One improvement would be to allocate lunch time....
