The buzzing metropolis of Seoul is South Korea’s capital—one of the biggest and most exciting cities on earth. On this full-day sightseeing tour with entrance fees included, cross the city in air-conditioned comfort with your guide. Take in top attractions including Gyeongbok Palace, Gwanghwamun Gate, and Jogye Temple, and step back in time at the historic Bukchon Hanok Village.
What to Expect
Following a morning pickup at your hotel in Seoul, meet your guide and head into the city to begin your sightseeing tour. Travelling in comfort by air-conditioned vehicle, beat the crowds and arrive at each stop relaxed and refreshed—even in the heat of summer.

First, visit top attractions including Gyeongbok Palace and Jogye Temple—with entrance fees included—and admire local landmarks such as the presidential Blue House and Gwanghwamun Gate. With your informative guide on hand, gain insight into centuries of Korean history.

Next, delve into the creative Insadong neighborhood and browse the antique stores and galleries for which the district is famous.Visit a ‘hanbok’ (traditional Korean clothing) store and try on Korean fashions from centuries passed.

In your Korean garments, visit the Bukchon Hanok Village—home to well-preserved traditional Korean buildings—and gain insight into life in Seoul before the high-rises and hotels arrived.

Back in your normal clothing, admire sweeping views over Seoul from the Bugak Skyway atop Mt. Bugak—one of the city’s highest points. Finish your tour with a visit to the popular shopping district of Myeongdong, then return to your Seoul hotel.
