What you'll do
You will start your adventure at Exit No.1 of Gwanghwamun Station (Subway Line 5). The first order of business will be to get acquainted with how to ride Segways, and you will be given some time to practice. The first stop is Gyeongbokgung Palace. After parking, you will head into the palace. You will then get thorough explanations on Korean history, the palace, and more. The royal guard changing ceremony takes place there at 10am. The next stop is Bukchon Hanok Village, where you can find an array of Traditional Korean houses. After riding around the village, we will visit Jogyesa Buddhist Temple. The area next to the temple is Insadong art and antique street. Here you can enjoy traditional cafes, handcraft stores, galleries, and a slew of other shops along the street. For lunch, we will stop by Tongin Traditional Market, where you can make DIY lunch boxes. You can choose a variety of foods from many vendors along the market, like a buffet. The menu includes chicken skewers, veggie pancakes, noodles, stir-fried food, and more. The tour will end after parking our rides back at the office.
Hello, my name is Jun and I am an avid bicycle and Segway enthusiast. Along with Wonhee (who has a degree in art and history) and Steve, I run Seoul Riding - Segway & E-Bike Tours. I am also an English speaking guide who is certified by the Korean Tourism Organization. I started my career as a driving tour guide. As you may know, traffic in Seoul can be quite bad at times and for me, driving to major tour destinations felt unnecessary since they are not too far from each other in Seoul. However they are a bit far if you want to explore by walking. This observation became my inspiration to start doing Segway tours. Leading people around the city has allowed me to provide them with thorough information and stories on Korean history and culture. It also lets me show the character of this 600 year-old city, more closely and effectively.
