After hotel pickup in Seoul, your tour starts with the drive to Imjingak Park to see the Freedom Bridge, a symbol of the tragedies of the Korean War. 

Then head toward the Korean Demilitarized Zone to visit the 3rd Infiltration Tunnel, which the North Korean Army used to infiltrate South Korea. With a provided helmet, you can walk down to the tunnel, and then you'll have time to browse the DMZ Exhibition Hall to see displays of old weapons, a short film about Korea's history, and other information about the Korean War.

Next, visit Dora Observatory for a view of North Korea, which you can see using the onsite telescopes aimed at the propaganda village, and then continue to Dorasan Station, the last station before the border with North Korea, where you can get a souvenir stamp that mimics an immigration stamp.

Make your way back to Seoul at this point, passing by Unification Village and stopping at the Korean Ginseng Center before drop-off at Seoul City Hall, where your tour ends.

Not very interesting.

Just u see tunnel and look over NKorea. it is weird to have the DMZ as tourist destination. it doesn't worth seeing.

I did the morning “no shopping” tour and we got back to city hall around 1:30pm. I would guess the shoppers got back around 2 (they weren’t too far behind us)

The tours will pick up at your hotel, but drop you off at a central metro station, a short 20 minute walk to Myoendong.
