About DMZ Spy Tour - Day Tours
Hotel to hotel pick up & Drop off. Very private DMZ SPY TOUR including JSA. Only DMZ tour in Korea in terms of visiting, story-telling and travelling comforts in a exclusive atmosphere. Expert guide escorts you along the infiltration route of 31 North Korean commandos, who invaded to the backyard of Blue House to assassinate then S Korean president. Travel over various evidences of their military maneuver to the point, where they first penetrated fortified S Korean DMZ fence. Then, go inside S Korean army DMZ camp and face DMZ field itself two steps away and walk up along the DMZ barbed wire fence line as if you are also patrolling the DMZ. You also see N Korea DMZ military post from here. It would be a very real and eye-opening experience. Then, enter JSA to experience more of the continuing conflicts between two Koreas. En route, you look across river border a North Korea village from N Korea-closest observation post. Arrange North Korean Style Duck BBQ. Vegetarian /Halal available

The DMZ was shut when we visited ( we think it reopens early in March) so we took a private tour with DMZ Spy tours with Shrek and Major BangSun Im ( who had recently retired from DMZ military guard). We started with a lovely hours walk in the mountains overlooking Seoul, to see battle site from the 1968 North Korea guerrilla attack and attempted assassination of the South Korean president . We then drove to Odusan Unification Tower, opposite North Korea where the Han and Imjin Rivers meet. On the route we drove past increasing security measures. Firstly fences of electrified single barbed wire, then double, then triple , past camouflaged tanks - then Polaris missiles! At the tower we looked through binoculars and could see North Koreans in their villages, tending to livestock, cycling , walking their dogs! After a fantastic lunch of BBQ duck and loads of amazing side dishes, they took us back to Seoul and the War Memorial. There we had a meeting with a North Korean defector- Seo Jae Pyoung. 19 years ago he left his home and got to the Chinese border, where at night he crossed the river to China. He then spent 14 months getting to South Korea. We spent nearly an hour with him and were able to ask him questions. It was a privilege to meet him and very humbling. What a fascinating day, we can highly recommend this tour.

Here you feel like the add advertises: a spy :), here you are literally seeing tunnels, bunkers, old unfinished or destroyed bridges, locomotives brought to an extinction and old train lines at the bottom of the valley where once upon a time these two countries used to communicate. Is intriguing as you really don not see or grasp what is going on here at night or on a daily basis. Definitely the mayor question is: how long this cold war or cold peace will last. So far from the other side, yet so close. It is definitely a tour you shall not miss as it is history into the making and it is important to see up close and personal what humans can do to bring themselves to a stop on relations and the fragility of it all. Highly recommended.

We had a fantastic tour of the DMZ with Alfonzo! We appreciated the history, insights, and fun facts along the way. We had 9 in our family group (youngest in grade 8) and all ages found it very engaging. My dad and aunt had grown up in Seoul and found it especially insightful, as did my AP History teacher husband. Trump visiting the DMZ prevented us from seeing the JSA, but Spy Tour worked with us to still make it engaging - adding in other spots of interest. So glad we were paired with Alfonzo as our guide.
