Seoul City Tour Bus Guide and Usage

 

 

 

About the Seoul City Tour Bus

 

The Seoul City Tour Bus provides organized shuttle tours to the city's most popular attractions. For the price of just a single ticket, you can spend all day hopping on and hopping off the bus* as it follows a circular route connecting Seoul's top sightseeing destinations. For first-time visitors, there is no better way to discover the city.
*Night Courses run without stops.


The company offers audio guides of Seoul in 11 different languages. At first, the audio guide was only available in Korean, English, Japanese and Chinese. Service has since expanded to include French, German, Russian, Spanish, Thai, Vietnamese, Indonesian, and Malaysian. The Seoul City Tour Bus company is currently working on adding more languages for the convenience of visitors and Italian, Arabic, Hindi, and Portuguese will be available in the future.
 
Single-use headphones are provided for each passenger upon boarding the bus. The open-air double-decker buses have rain and snow covers to keep passengers dry and warm even in inclement weather.

 

 

Courses

 

Seoul City Tour Buses follow a variety of routes, divided by theme.

Downtown Palace Tour

This 22-stop course takes you past not only Seoul's historic royal palaces, but also to popular tourist destinations such as Namsan Seoul Tower, Myeong-dong, Itaewon, Namdaemun Market and the National Museum of Korea.

Seoul Panorama Course

Get some sweeping views of Seoul from this 14-stop tour that takes you to Namsan, Cheonggyecheon Stream, the Hangang River and other scenic spots.

1-Story Bus Night Course

Spend a romantic evening cruising around the city. This course lets you enjoy Seoul's electrifying nighttime vistas, both from above (Namsan Seoul Tower) and below (along the Hangang River).

2-Story Bus Night Course

Like the 1-Story Bus Night Course, this course takes you along some of the city's most beautiful nighttime scenery, but the upper deck of the double-decker bus provides an unmatched vantage point.


트롤리버스

Trolley bus service is available for the Seoul Panorama Course and Night Course as well.

 

Traditional Culture Tour

Using only open, double-decker buses, this course provides great views of Seoul's major historic sites, including Gyeongbokgung Palace, Deoksugung Palace, Jongmyo and Sungnyemun Gate. It also takes you to the major shopping districts of Namdaemun, Dongdaemun and Myeong-dong

Gangnam City Tour

Discover the glitz and glamor of the posh Gangnam district from the comfort of a circulating bus or trolley bus. Two courses are: the “Pink Line” takes from Gangnam Station to Apgujeong, while the “Blue Line” takes you from Apgujeong to COEX. There is also the "Around Gangnam City Tour" course which combines the Pink and Blue Lines.
