Overview

See the highlights of Seoul’s popular Gangnam District on a Han River cruise followed by a tour of Bongeunsa, a Buddhist temple dating back to the Silla Dynasty. Your afternoon itinerary includes admission to COEX Aquarium, where more than 40,000 sea creatures are on display in exhibition tanks and discover zones. With a knowledgable guide you’ll learn about landmarks such as Seoul Olympic Stadium, seen from the water.
  • Guided tour of Seoul’s Gangnam District
  • See more than 40,000 sea creatures at the COEX Aquarium
  • Take a scenic cruise on the Han River
  • Visit Bongeunsa, one of Korea's major Buddhist temples
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off included
After hotel pickup, you’re driven to the affluent Gangnam District — coined the Beverly Hills of Seoul. The COEX Aquarium is the first stop on your afternoon tour, followed by a relaxing Han River cruise and an exploration of Bongeunsa Temple.
Designed around the theme 'Water Journey,' COEX Aquarium features 14 ‘discover zones’ from the Andes through the Amazon River to the ocean depths. Follow your guide around one of South Korea's largest aquariums, which showcases more than 40,000 creatures and 600 underwater species including seals, sharks, penguins, stingrays and sea anemones.
Next up is a leisurely cruise on the Han River — an ideal way to view the city waterfront. Listen to music and guided commentary as you spot local landmarks and pass under some of the Seoul’s 27 bridges.
Returning to shore, your guide accompanies you to Bongeunsa, a Korean temple housing more than 3,000 Buddhist scriptures. Escape the city bustle as you explore this quiet retreat, including shrines, pagodas and temple halls. Admire painted symbols representing Buddhist principles and soak up the views of Gangnam before you stop by the Ginseng Center and are driven back to your hotel.
Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.

Picked up right on time, by a lovely tour guide Daria, the afternoon ran according to schedule. The river cruise was quite pleasant , next the temple with the massive statue of Budda with the graduation cap on, the temple surrounds were lovely, and finally across the road to the Aquarium, which was very different to the ones in Australia. Overall a very nice afternoon, Daria was looking out for other members of our tour, always knowing where everyone was, a very happy guide.

Winnie was our guide and she was amazing. She showed us and explained to us everything with enthusiasm and she also took really good care of us while we were with her.

We had an excellent tour guide---Weenie---who I would rate a 5 star. Too bad the same cant be said about the tour.
The COEX Aquarium is designed for families with small children. Nearly all of the exhibitions and attractions are aimed at children Not a location for adults who want to see a big city aquarium. Not much to see. Very disappointing.
The Han River cruise was all of 15 minutes with no info given by the cruise boat about what we were seeing. Very disappointing.
Most of the day was spent in traffic trying to get to these venues.

Very price worthy tour with friendly guide!

The driver and guide came and picked us up at the hotel and we drove to the river for the boat trip. The river tour took an hour and it was beautiful, it did show the city form a different view than you get from roaming the city.

The temple and aquarium was located next to each other which made it efficient with the 4.5h we had. The temple was tranquil considering it is located in the middle of Gangnam. After the aquarium we got dropped off in Gangnam so that we could continue the tour ourselves.

Considering the trip did cost 70 which included: driver, guide, boat ticket and aquarium ticket we recommend this trip!
