Overview
The DMZ area has been closed to prevent spreading African Swine Fever, we will conduct the tour in an alternative schedule; [Imjingak → Art Space BEAT 131 → Odusan Unification Observatory → War Memorial of Korea → Drop-off at City Hall or Myeongdong.] The DMZ area is the closest district to North Korea. This 6-hour tour (including transfers) is primarily held in the 3rd tunnel, which you will have the opportunity to enter by foot. If you are interested in learning about war history between North and South Korea, this tour is for you. Depending on the weather, you might be able to see North Korea through a telescope at the Dora Observatory. Also, this tour does not stop by the shopping center. Returning to Seoul, you will enjoy Korean style lunch, Bibimbap: steamed rice with mixed vegetables). The tour concludes at Myeongdong after lunch. No Shopping Center guaranteed.
