What you’ll do

You’ll join one of our Seoul hosts to flit you way around some of the best the city has to offer, the unmissable if you will.

Obviously, we’d be lying and you’d be silly to believe us if we said you could see it all in a day, but you have a good go! If you’ve got a Seoul bucket list, now would be a good time to whip it out, or let your host share with you the spots which they think are unmissable for a unique spin on things.

From iconic attractions like the Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung Palaces to Cheonggyecheon park, ultra-sleek Gangnam with its upmarket malls to the rather more traditional (and a few hundred years older) Bukchon Hanok Village, there’s plenty to see.

You could go tea-sipping in Bukchon, gallery-hopping in Samcheong-dong or Korean barbeque feasting - or all three!

Your host can’t wait to share their city with you, drinking what there is to drink (try soju), eating what there is to eat and seeing what there is to see!
