At the forefront of fashion and technology yet deeply traditional, Seoul brings together palaces, temples, avant-garde design, and mountain trails.
On our tour, we will discover a fascinating mix of old and new, traditional culture with contemporary attractions.

We are going to explore the Gwanghwamun and Jongno-gu areas.
The focus of attention in this area, and probably in the entire city, is the royal palace of Seoul Gyeongbokgung. To continue our walking circuit through some of the best palaces, Confucian shrines, and Buddhist temples in Seoul, it will be like a trip to the time of the Joseon dynasty.
On the way, we will visit traditional tea houses, galleries, bars, and craft shops among its labyrinthine streets full of Hanoks.

We will give you the best tips on where to drink and eat such as the famous Korean beer chicken among others.

We had a fabulous private tour of the downtown Seoul with our guide, Moises. He was very detailed and brought us to very authentic local places which we enjoyed very much. This tour presents a very good overview of Seoul even for travellers who have been to the city before. Thanks for the wonderful experience!

I am a massive fan of walking tours, which I have done in almost all the cities I have visited. Those are always the best way to get to know a city, as well as having someone local to direct you to the must-see and hidden niche places. This has not been different. Super recommended. 2 hours full of history and anecdotes, and also the great recommendation of places to eat!! Fell in love with the Tea house the court around it!
