Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: DMZ, Munsan-eup, Majeong-ri Imjingak Tourist information center, Paju, Gyeonggi-do South Korea

Your tour starts with pick-up at your hotel in downtown Seoul. Firstly, your driver will take you to Imjigak Park in comfort, which is located one-hour distance from Seoul. After the visit of Imjingak Park, you will pass through the Unification Bridge, which is the first door to DMZ. Don't forget to bring your passport because you need to gain a license to cross this Bridge. The highlight of this DMZ tour is the 3rd infiltration tunnel. Discovered in 1978, this tunnel was dug by the Northern army to invade the South. You will be stunned at how hostile the relations between the two Koreas were and witness the prime example of the South – North confrontation. On the Dora Observatory deck, do not miss on the chance to get a glimpse of North Korean village life. There is no where else in the South Korea where you can look at so close to the North Korea Then, head towards the Dorasan Station, a zone that strictly restrict general civilian access. This station has got international attention since the previous Korean President Kim Daejung and the American President George H.W. Bush visited.

If you go down into the tunnel, you essentially are right up to the line. But no, you aren't in the area where the North Korean soldiers are.
