Carve a dynamic path through Seoul as you navigate from a winding road with all-encompassing views of mountains to dynamic districts that offer unique shopping experiences. Visit royal palaces that showcase amazing examples of Korean architecture and learn about local culture from your guide.

Once you are picked up, head to the Bukak Skyway and stop at the Palgakjeong (Octagonal Pavilion) on Bugaksan Mountain. The road here offers lovely views of Bukhansan Mountain’s Bibong Peak and Munsubong Peak on one side and Namsan Mountain on the other side.

Next, head to Changdeokgung Palace, an ornate multicoloured construction that dates back to the Joseon Dynasty. Explore the Insadong Antique Shop Alley to experience the traditional culture of Korea as you make your way past art galleries, traditional craft stores, antique dealers, tea houses, and restaurants.

Then, immerse yourself in the South Korea of old, in the Namsangol Hanok Village. You can see restored traditional Korean houses, and even try your hand at traditional games.

Afterwards, you will visit Sungnyemun Gate before heading to the open-aired Namdaemun Market, which boasts a wide selection of different kinds of merchandise. The tour ends at Myeongdong
