    Great way to see Seoul on a cold and rainy day. The A route buses had the top closed which certainly helped with keeping the elements at bay.

    We toured the city of Seoul during the first week of October 2019. We took the Blue line and the took the Red line for a spin around. No attractions to mention on the Red line route, just sit on the bus and watch the buildings go by, however most of the city's great attractions

    We enjoyed both the downtown and Panorama routes.The bus gives you a chance to cool down in the heat and lets you see a lot of things in a short time.The English language guide is helpful and the cost is inexpensive.We picked the bus up at City Hall.

    The tour wasn't bad; however, we purchased a two day ticket, and pretty much did what we wanted to do in one day. Probably should save monies, and go to DMZ next time. To be honest, you will want to purchase your ticket on trip advisor. I paid more at the actual place.
