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.

Hana was terrific. She helped us to know and appreciate Seoul and Korean culture and history. She took us to a fabulous dumpling restaurant and a traditional tea house with the most awesome cold fruit teas. Most importantly, Hana's warmth and kindness made us feel as if we were traveling with a very close friend. It was a wonderful day. Jane and Mike L.
