Ultimate DMZ and JSA: Private Tour including North Korea Spy Commando Invasion Route
US$ 212.00
Overview
Follow the invasion route of North Korean spy commandos on a private day trip to Korea’s fortified border, or Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), including a tour of the Joint Security Area (JSA). You’ll peek into JSA conference rooms at Panmunjom and visit the Freedom House and Bridge of No Return with a private guide at your side. Imagine the confrontation that took place when US and South Korean militaries joined forces against North Korean infiltrators! Your full-day tour includes lunch and hotel pickup from Seoul by private vehicle.
What to Expect
Travel in the convenience and comfort of a private vehicle to the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) after pickup from your hotel in Seoul. During the drive, ask any questions of your knowledgeable guide who describes your full-day itinerary and provides background information on the fortified border between North and South Korea.
Following your morning JSA (Joint Security Area) tour — see Itinerary below for details — enjoy a North Korean–style lunch of barbecued duck (vegetarian meals arranged upon request) and continue along the spy invasion route of the DMZ. Here, look for evidence of the 1968 infiltration when 22 North Korean spies crossed into South Korea more than a decade after the Korean War.
You’ll spot a North Korean village from a civilian observation point, visit Imjingak Peace Park and see the Bridge of No Return before a final stop at the War Memorial of Korea in Yongsan-dong on the return drive to Seoul, with drop-off in the Myeong-dong district.
Please note: This tour operates under strict guidelines. Please visit the Important Information tab to read about passport requirements, dress code, and other pertinent details.

This tour is highly recommended for anyone interested in learning more about how the two Koreas came into being, the incursions that the North has made into the South since the split and the somewhat uneasy middle ground sitting between the two Koreas. What drew...More
