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...

Vin and Mrs Merlot, first time visit to Seoul, use hop on hop buses around the world and this is one of the best.

Great way to get your... More

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

First time i had such bad experience. I usually always use those buses when i visit a new country. Let me tell you that those buses where old , not clean, earphones hardly worked, schedule never ever follow by the drivers so you never know when your bus is coming. Drivers were talking, a lot, in Korean, no English at... More

The seoul city tour bus information Center is located in front of the donghae duty free building at gwanghwamun st. There are many city tour buses that organized very well. If you never visited korea, highly recommend one of these city tour buses!!

There are three routes or four routes if you're counting the night life tour. Cost to each tour vary slightly but they're all around $10-15 US$. I was on the Route A. The bus was very punctual, clean and there are headphones available for translations. Riders are free to get on and off the off at each desirable stops and... More
