I have two questions regarding the Seoul City Tour Bus:
Q1. There are four different routes on the Seoul City Tour Bus: (1) Traditional Markets (15 stops), (2) City Circulation (26 stops), (3) Cheonggyecheong/Royal Palaces (13 stops), and (4) Nighttime (a non-stop tour of the Han River. For each of these, if I don’t get off at any stop and just ride non-stop from beginning to end, what is the duration for each of these routes?
Q2. Are the prices the same for all four of these tours?

Where can we catch the hop-on-hop-off bus from? And how early do they start their daily city travel route?

October 19 2013 00:29 am

Discover Seoul

Dear Marissa,

Thanks for your comment! You can catch the bus right outside Gate #1 (closest gate to the Dragon Hill). Please stop by the Discover Seoul Desk and we can give you a map of the locations visited. A good time to get on the bus would be around 1000hrs (with the exception of MOndays--the bus does not operate).
