Seoul Full-day Tour - Seoul City Tour Bus

Art Gallery Tour
The best of an afternoon
It is a good idea to visit an art gallery to get a comprehensive view of modern arts. Although many of Korea's representative art galleries are gathered in Insa-dong and Pyeongchang-dong, visiting them all one by one is not an easy thing to do. Why don't you use one of the art gallery circulation buses to get you there?
Gallery buses run every hour from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The transportation fee is 1000 won. Once you have paid the fee, you can use this bus all day. You will also get a discount when entering the art galleries. The buses run on holidays also, but they run every two hours on Monday since most art galleries are closed on Monday.
PANMUNJEOM (JSA) Tour
Panmunjeom, in the Demilitarized Zone, is where the armistice agreement was signed on July 27, 1953, and where South-North talks still take place. A military tour guide escorts the visitors to the Freedom House for a look at North Korea.
*You must carry YOUR PASSPORT on tour day
Shopping in Seoul
Namdaemun Market, the biggest traditional market in the very center of Seoul, and Dongdaemun Market, specializing in wholesale clothing, give visitors the taste of local market and Seoulites' busy daily life. Itaewon is another most exotic place in Seoul representing fusion culture with a distinctive atmosphere.
Nanta - Non-verbal Performance
'NANTA' means figuratively reckless punching as in a slugfest at a boxing match. Our 'NANTA' is a non-verbal performance of reckless rhythms that dramatize customary Korean percussion in a strikingly comedic stage show. Integrating uniquely Korean traditional tempos with a western performance style, NANTA storms on stage into a huge kitchen where four capricious cooks are preparing a wedding banquet. While COOKIN', they turn all kinds of kitchen items - pots, pans, dishes, knives, chopping board, water bottles, even brooms and each other- into percussion instruments. Rhythm rules and audiences are swept along in the primitive sound explosion and actions on stage. Though the performance is built primarily on captivating rhythms and has very few spoken words, audiences of all ages and nationalities can easily enjoy the plot and dramas.
