Tour description provided by Viator

Let an informative guide escort you on a private tour of the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), following the North Korean spy commandos’ invasion route and touring the Joint Security Area (JSA). Find evidence of the 1968 infiltration of the fortified border that 22 spies crossed more than a decade after the Korean War, and spot a North Korean village from a civilian observation point. At Panmunjom, visit the conference rooms of the JSA, the Freedom House and the Bridge of No Return. Includes lunch and round-trip transport by private vehicle.
Meet your private guide upon hotel pickup in Seoul and get settled into your comfortable vehicle for the drive to the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), a fortified border that divides North and South Korea. Talk with your guide about the conflict and ask any questions you have about your itinerary before the JSA (Joint Security Area) portion of your tour begins (see Itinerary below for details). Following your morning JSA tour, you'll enjoy a North Korean–style lunch of barbecued duck (vegetarian meals arranged upon request) and continue along the spy invasion route of the DMZ.Please note: This tour operates under strict guidelines.
