This 7 hour tour will help you to discover the essence of Korea


Seoul is the capital of South Korea and it is the heart of Korea's culture. If you are a big fan of history, you can find various historic sites in Seoul. If you are a shopping-lover, there are several shopping and entertainment districts which draw a large number of tourists every day. If you prefer to stay and lay back somewhere peaceful, there is Hangang River, which runs through the center of the city. I will show you a dynamic view of Seoul along the river.

If you have only one day in Seoul, I recommend this highlight tour so that you can experience the history and the culture of Korea in a day.

A Recent Review of this tour

Hana was a great guide. She was very knowledgeable about all things in Seoul. She took us for a walking tour all day Saturday and then took us hiking on Sunday morning to Bukhasan mountain and knew exactly how to take us up to the peak and back. Hana spoke English fluently and was able to help explain some of the cultural differences that we had encountered so far during our trip. Hana also gave us a lot of tips on where to go that was off the beaten path. I highly touring w Hana!
