Learn about tense Korean history at DMZ

You've likely encountered the complex story of North and South Korea, whether through gripping feature films, books, or even the world of pop culture. On this private guided tour of The Demilitarized Zone(DMZ), you’ll get a closer look at the Korean War’s grim legacy and aftermath in the divided peninsula. Razor wire fences slither across the land, a constant reminder of the divide. Concrete watchtowers and bunkers dot the hills, offering a glimpse into the defensive strategies of both sides. You’ll also see abandoned military outposts, ghostly remnants of a bygone era, hinting at the once-heavy military presence.

See North Korea from afar

Your tour to DMZ starts with a visit to Imjingak Peace Park – a poignant reminder of the Cold War with memorials and a glimpse into North Korea from the observation deck. With a small group of 6 people and a Chinese, English, or Japanese-speaking guide, witness the historic stand-off at the Joint Security Area, the only meeting point at the DMZ for North and South Korean officials. Of the 4 tunnels discovered at the DMZ, you’ll get to take a long walk (almost into history it feels like) through the "Third Tunnel of Aggression". Finally, peer through the Dorasan Observatory's powerful binoculars, spotting a real North Korean farming village and the eerily empty yet scenic "truce village." After a glimpse into this divided territory, your tour concludes with a drop-off back at your hotel in a comfortable bus.
