This is a tour to take you deep into the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone), just a few miles from North Korean territory, to discover more about Korea's turbulent past. Despite its name, the DMZ is the area between two of the most heavily armed frontiers on earth. However, this no man's land is remarkably safe for tourists (and even world leaders) to visit, but is only accessible via group tours. Your guide will relate the fascinating history surrounding the area as you visit historical sites: war relics at Imjingak Park, Freedom Bridge across which almost 13,000 Korean POWs walked to freedom, the 3rd Infiltration Tunnel - an invasion route built beneath the border, the DMZ exhibition theater, and views of North Korea from atop the Dora Observatory.

Interesting tour. Decided on this as a half day activity which was fruitful. Got a brief understanding on the issues between North/South Korea. Prepare for a good workout going down/up the tunnels!
Very informative. Jay song is such a great tour guide.
Worth every cent! Our experience at Dora Observatory and also going down the third tunnel were great. Next visit, we'll make sure to include JSA tour in our itinerary.
Shoutout to Klook's customer service team as well. One of the best! Hassle-free DMZ tour by Klook. We learned a lot about the history of Korea and how they were divided into North and South. Our tour guide, Hana, made sure the short lecture was not boring. Really interesting daytrip when you visit Seoul. Pick-up at our hotel was on time. If you are not in a hurry, get the tour with lunch. Hana brought us to this traditional Korean restaurant after the actual tour and the food was good and plenty! The tour follows a strict time though and usually won't have much time to stay at every stop so be sure to make the most out of every place!
The pick-up was fuss-free. The driver came to the exact address (airbnb) and pick us to the main waiting area where a bus will fetch us to DMZ. However tour was rather short.
