This attraction is run by several different companies under the same name. If you buy tickets from one company you can’t get on another companies bus. They are all listed as Seoul City Tour.... beware. You will be out your money

Doing the Seoul City Bus Tour is one of the best ways to see the city without having to take taxis, drive, or navigate the subway system. I did the Downtown Palace Course which takes you to 22 different locations (Gwanghwamun, Deoksugung Palace, Namdaemun Market,...More

If there were zero stars I would give them that. Buses DO NOT STOP as they pass by their stop points, audio on bus not synchronized with stops, routes poorly selected.

Samcheongdong / Bukchon
This historic neighbourhood was traditionally home to
Seoul’s middle and upper-classes. Now it’s most famed
for its clusters of beautiful, traditional Korean
homes (called hanok), many of which are found in
Bukchon. Many of these homes have now been converted
into restaurants, cafes, shops, and even guesthouses,
and their unique architecture offers a look at Korea’s
traditional beauty. Samcheongdong’s main and side
