a chance to tour the best sites of Seoul with an expert professor
This tour is completely flexible on the number and nature of the sites visited for about 6 hours. On offer are the best sights of Seoul's historic downtown area, many of which are depicted in my other tours here. It all depends on where I pick you up and drop you off, and just what you want to see and do. Possibilities include Seoul's best palaces, Buddhist temples, Christian churches, Shamanic or Taoist shrines, museums, historic buildings & traditional neighborhoods, the Cheonggye-cheon Stream, the Bukhan-san National Park, restaurants & tea-shops, and so-on. On this system I offer 3or4-hour, 6-hour & 8or9-hour versions of this tour; you can choose (this is the 6-hour one). If you want something other than that, a custom-designed tour could be created to suit your desires.

walking; local subway trains, buses, taxis (pretty cheap)
Just my guiding to the sites you want to visit, and my explanations of them.
Estimated Local Cash Needed
20000 Won - just for any admission fees and taxis, any incidentals... you can use your VISA or MC credit-card for almost anything in Seoul.
local transportation, rental car (if requested; usually not needed), admission fees, and any meals/snacks/drinks.
I do not have a car in Korea, do not drive. I can arrange for a mini-bus or taxi if you wish, at extra expense. Otherwise we will use the cheap taxis that are easy to catch, and Korea's excellent and fast system of subway trains, and buses, together.

We can't thank David enough for such an enjoyable day. His insight into the country he loves gave us such a different perspective during our time in Seoul. Over 600 years of history is hard to fit into one day, but David was able to do it in a fun and timely manner. The lunch he shared with us was one of our favorite in Korea. I highly recommend spending time with David while in Seoul.
