We booked tickets prepared for a great day touring Seoul on the last day of our honeymoon. We boarded the bus and took it to Itaewon for our first stop. Enjoyed Itaewon but then waited for a bus that was 12 minutes late and full with standing room only. We were ok with this and thought we would be fine... More

Wife had enough of walking in Seoul, so I took off for the Downtown Palace course on a Saturday on my own. I usually find myself taking the subway in most cities, but wanted to check out the overall city and figured that Saturday would be a good day to do it. Fairly inexpensive, intervals of ~45 minutes in March... More

I had a better experience with the hop on/off bus at other cities. Would expect better given the fact that this is the modern Seoul. (+): - panorama tour route is interesting, cover wider area, passing top tourist spots, and has options of open top bus/trolley. - audio guide provided (but ONLY at trolley bus) - clean, comfortable and good...

Buses are at each stop on time, clean, and with headphones to describe the area. The bus drivers are helpful and friendly. Great price for getting around to all the "must see" sights.

There seem to be slightly changed routes and operations in 2017. The bus starts at Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) and costs 15,000 won per person (10,000 aged 6-19, but, unusually, no 65+ age discount are given). Two daytime routes are available: Red = Downtown, Palace - "Traditional Culture Course", of the central area; and Blue = "Seoul City tour Highlight... More

We had a great time riding the highlights route. We were disappointed that the Traditional Course was cancelled due to the Presidential protests, but still enjoyed how easy it was to get to the attractions, and how comfortable the buses were. There was WiFi on the bus and we were able to look up things to do at each stop... More

We love hop on hop off buses and have used them around the world. This one offers two routes around Seoul and travels past some really good spots to visit. My only criticism is that there is no commentary along the route to provide any additional information. This would really improve the service and bring it in line with similar... More

This is a but tour which achieves little. You get to sit in traffic jams and get shown places where Korean celebrities allegedly hang out, along with a lot of high end boutiques and a glimpse of another Buddhist temple. We found nothing of interest on it at all. Advice for anyone thinking of doing this tour - don't bother.... More
