You will be picked up at your accommodation in Seoul and taken to Imjingak Park. Once you arrive at the park, you can see the Freedom Bridge and an old steam train that shows the extremity of the tragedy that was the Korean War at Imjingak Park.

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. Then you will move to Dorasan Station, the last station before entering North Korea from South Korea. You can get a stamp that resembles the immigration desk in the airport, as a souvenir (You will not be entering North Korea). 

On the way back to Imjingak Park, your vehicle will pass by the Unification Village before heading back to Seoul.

Once you return to Seoul, you will stop-by a Korean Ginseng Center (skip if you choose no shopping tour option) before you will be dropped off at the City Hall.

You can choose 1 of 2 half day tours with morning or afternoon departure.

Extremely informative, its almost like traveling in time, first to the past with all of the history, and then to the futur when you step in Dorasan station. Loved it.

Good guide, took pertty much the whole day, ended around 3pm, expected a earlier start and finish before lunch so heads up there... with out shopping experience will save you some time but recommend JSA for sure. Book in advance to get that. Our trip was short notice so did this one for the better than nada mode.

The DMZ is actually very close to Seoul so a half day trip is more than enough to see everything. Dora Observatory was a particular highlight. The third tunnel is quite hard work and probably not suitable for anyone who has claustrophobia and also includes some parts that require you to crouch a little bit.
I went in late September and obviously this tour is full or tourists! Nevertheless, highly recommend.

Party of six and we were picked up from our AirBnB. Mr Kim was the perfect tour guide and was very interesting. He answered any questions and was patient. You will learn so much on the tour and it's an unique opportunity to experience looking at North Korea landscape and going in a tunnel. Good tour for value.
