Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at the Gwanghwamun metro station in the morning and start your 3-hour walking tour with a stroll to the Seoul Museum of History. Tour the interactive exhibit at the museum’s Seoul City Panoramic Theatre, including miniature models of the Seoul cityscape.

    From here, continue on foot to Gyeonghuigung Palace, one of Seoul’s five royal palaces. Your guide points out the highlights before escorting your small group to Daehamun Gate at Deoksugung Palace to watch the stately Royal Guard Rotation Ceremony.

    After a quick stop at Seoul City Hall, you’ll walk through a section of the 5-mile-long (8-km) Cheonggyecheon Plaza in downtown Seoul — a popular gathering place for locals to relax. Meander along the placid stream traversed by stone bridges against a backdrop of modern skyscrapers.

    The financial and cultural center of Jongno in central Seoul is your final destination. Conclude your tour at the Bosingak Bell Pavilion, a 14th-century bell tower. After this overview of Seoul, bid farewell to your guide and continue exploring the city on your own; discover new neighborhoods or perhaps return here for a more in-depth look.
