Great tour
Our tour guide was so great. She gave us a lot of insight on the places we went to and then had time to look around ourselves.

[Premium Private DMZ Tour] with N-Seoul Tower include Korean Authentic lunch
Chance Kim was a fantastic tour guide! He made the whole experience so fun and personable - it was like going on a trip with a good friend. The trip itself was comfortable, lunch was fantastic, and everything went smoothly. I would definitely recommend Mr.Kim for any of the tours that he offers!

N Seoul Tower Hanbok Rental
Our family had a great experience and great pictures! This place has an excellent variety of Korean Clothing to choose from. Staff are friendly and helpful. The lady who fixed my hair really did well. The time given was enough to take all the photos we wanted. Lockers are a bit pricey though. Overall, the experience was worth it and I highly recommend this activity.

Yoon is a great tour guide same as the first tour guide that we had. We visited different places and had time to take some photos and check the different places. They explained everything clearly and Yoon even snapped some photos for us as well as explaining everything in detail. It is a highly recommended tour.

Seoul Morning Tour: Seoul Tower, Namsan Hanok Village, The War Memorial of Korea
Very good tour with a very friendly guide whos English was OK. People carrier vehicle with only the 2 of us. Very comfortable with AC. Pick up point was difficult to find and a bit of a walk. Wouldve preferred a pick up nearer our AirBNB which would not have been difficult for them to do. All the sites were covered and were extremely interesting. Lunch was typical Korean cuisine. Highly recommend this tour.

Seoul City Sightseeing Tour Including Gyeongbokgung Palace, N Seoul Tower, and Namsangol Hanok Village
Had an amazing time! This was my first time back to Seoul since I was 8 years old. Our pretty tour guide Sonia, was friendly, fun, and knowledgeable. She spoke freely about any subject regarding Korea with surprisingly good English. Some may not like visiting any shops during the tour, but that's all part of the cultural experience. Learned a lot and so glad to have experienced it.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Wear comfortable walking shoes, especially if you plan to explore the surrounding park.

  • Book your observatory entrance ticket online to avoid lines at the ticket office.

  • Remember to pick up an audio guide in the observation area for commentary on attractions you can see through the windows.

  • Both Namsan Tower and the cable car are wheelchair accessible.

How to Get There

Cars are not allowed within Namsan Park, so to reach the tower you’ll have to walk up the hill or ride the cable car. The nearest subway station is in Myeongdong, a 10-minute walk from the cable car station. It’s also possible to ride the Namsan Sunhwan Shuttle Bus, which stops at several subway stations throughout Seoul.

When to Get There

Namsan Tower is open 365 days a year, with extended hours on Saturdays. Each restaurant has its own operating hours, so it’s a good idea to call ahead if you’re planning to eat. Though the views from the tower are excellent no matter when you visit, they’re particularly stunning at night when the city is illuminated.

Namsan Tower Love Locks

The tower has long been a popular date spot for Koreans, and you’ll notice the railings around the tower are covered in colorful padlocks. These locks are often decorated with names of couples who left them at the tower as a symbol of eternal love.
