Best way to start a trip in Korea is right here. By the end of the first hour, you’ll get your money’s worth just with the sheer knowledge we share with you about Korea and the Korean people. We don’t just push you from place to place. We give you great explanations about what you are looking at and offer up a lot of context. Start bright and early in the morning and we’ll go around the central Seoul area for the day. Most of Seoul’s heritage tour sites are in this area so it’s a great place to kickstart your stay here in Korea. We’ll start and finish at City Hall Station. We’ll see the ultra modern side of Seoul as well as Seoul when it was the ancient capital of the Joseon Dynasty (1392AD – 1910AD). An excellent way to see where this country came from, what it’s been through and where its going.
