DMZ also known as Demilitarized Zone is a buffer zone between South and North Korea along the border and it's one of the most visited places in South Korea by the tourists.

You can customize the itinerary to visit both DMZ and few different places in Seoul in a day!

DMZ (Imjingak Park) - ID check at Civilian Control Line - The 3rd Infiltration Tunnel (Highlight of the DMZ tour) - Dorsan Observatory - Dorsan Train Station - Unification Village - Lunch - Seoul Tour (Choose 1-2 places in Seoul such as the Traditional Market, Palace, Traditional Village, etc. The number of the places to tour around in Seoul will depend on the time we have left after the DMZ tour).

* To enter the DMZ, it is mandatory that we switch to a "DMZ shuttle bus" joining other travelers and locals since we're entering the restricted military area and there will be some photo restrictions during the tour.
