I usually never complain but last night I took the Seoul City Bus tour at 7.30pm and was excited about seeing all the sights. We were stuck in traffic a lot and could really see nothing. The bus driver seemed so miserable and spoke continuously for the two hours in Korean and there was no accommodation for non Korean speakers.... More

I expected the same sort of tour I've had in Europe - I was wrong! The headphones give you very little information and not all of them work. Some of the drop offs are named after hotels rather than the tourism site which is of no use whatsoever. It is not a 24 hour pass so once youvr been on... More

We took the downtown / palace course. It was a little hard as the lady at the ticket booth didn't really speak english but we somehow managed. Also one or two of the sights on our course wasn't open due to it being a specific week day (which we weren't aware of because it's not written in English) but thankfully... More

The bus was fine and the narrative through the headphones was OK. The route took two hours to complete (12 - 2PM) for 22 stops. Good for an overview of Seoul, but don't plan to hop on and off much because of the traffic and the fact that seeing palaces requires alot of walking. Our trip was 25,000 Korean for... More

We took Route B and Route E trips. Didn't really see anything but new buildings and traffic. Ride on the Trolley bus was unfordable wood bench seating and unhelpful, barely distinguishable commentary on sites. Perhaps Route A would have been better but we decided to do this on foot to give our butts a break. Wasted money.

The bus which should be running every 30 minutes (according to the schedule in the bus stop) didn't show up after 47 minutes today. The 8 guests waiting in the bus stop just gave up and went home. Also the home page of the provider doesn't provide the following essential information: 1. GPS coordinates of all the bus stops, so... More

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

Actually it was not bad if you need to get a quick idea about main historical places. They offer 3 different tours. We choose the one for 2 hours, it passed very fast. It was for 12 Wong per ticket. Languages offered- English, Korean and Chinese. All tour info you listen through headphones. You can go down at any station... 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...
