    Layover in Seoul….

    We have about a 7-7.5hr layover in Seoul in September and I was wondering if anyone knew of a car and driver who could take us on a city tour. Thanks

    The airport itself offers FREE tours ranging from 1 -5 hours. Here is link to check them out
    The airport is huge and frankly rather a hassle IMHO due to crowds and having to move between various floors to get anywhere, however if you like to shop etc there is just about everything thing there as well as several food courts.

    don't worry the service is very good I have done a couple tours they have the times etc. and all you need to is allow about 1.5 hours prior to leaving since I assume you will already be checked in. The price is right and it gives you a nice taste of what the country is like

    @ JoanneH was there one you particularly enjoyed…we are pretty much open to anything as we have never been there…and I assume since we are on a layover we are already checked in…just have to go through security again….we will be leaving our bags checked somewhere there (we are taking only carry on)

    I have done the 3 hour and 5 hour tours you will have to match your time frame up to when tours leave so you can decided as they leave at fixed times. When you go to the web page they give you times they depart and that will basically let you know which ones will work for you. As I said before none is in depth just a taste of the country so it doesn't really matter if you like I have seen a ton of temples, major buildings etc. I am not into shopping so I have not done that one however in talking to a lady while waiting for plane who did do it, she said she loved it and it was well run and she didn't have to worry about getting back they gave time warnings, that did not happen on the tours I was on.
