What you’ll do

From gallery-hopping in Samcheong-dong to tea-sipping in Bukchon, Seoul is nothing if not diverse.

With one of our Seoul hosts by your side, you’ll take to the streets for half a day, discovering this modern capital’s traditional heart.

In the few hours you have with your host, you might like to take in some iconic sights, like the Dongdaemun Design Plaza and Park or the City Hall, before venturing further afield to unexplored pastures. 

You could sip on soju (a vodka-like drink) with your host and nibble on a few snacks in a street tent bar, or get your pop-culture kicks in the neighbourhood of Gangnam (yes, like Psy’s world-famous song).

Alternatively, you might like to keep it low key and explore a quirky old neighbourhood. Might we suggest Bukcheon Hanok Village, which boasts over 400 traditional Korean houses, known as hanok?

Whatever you’d like from your day, your wish is our command, and your host can’t wait to share a slice of their home city with you!

Great Experience!

Ben was wonderful! Very friendly and knowledgeable. He showed us some amazing places and shared some great Korean food! Great advice, too, on other things to see and do during our trip. Very glad we chose Ben as our guide!

Mom-Daughter Bonding in Seoul

I was with my 7.y.o. daughter & we had 4 hours to spare in Seoul. We wanted Korean food, to tour the palace in Hanboks & get a photographer to take our photos. Giwon not only delivered on all of these but went above and beyond in every way! Could not recommend her more. And I was delighted by first experience with CityUnscripted :)

Ben was awesome

We booked a four hour private tour of Seoul with city unscripted, Ben was our guide and he was wonderful. He was knowledgeable, thoughtful and patient. Ben was able to tailor our tour to the various interests of our family.
