The Best One Day Trip Outside and Around Seoul With Private Car

Are you looking for a comfortable, family-friendly, fun trip around Seoul? Then you came to the right place! Booking a Private Car Service is a great way to travel and it’s affordable! For 10 hours you get a car and a driver who will take you to your destinations, by picking 3 places around this area allows you to really enjoy different activities while not worrying about transportation, time and leaving your stuff behind on trains or buses. I will recommend a great itinerary that’s available to book here.

For those who want to make a Private Car Tour IN Seoul read this blog post: One Day in Seoul With Private Car

Reminder: Seoul and Nami Area are BIG so depending on travel time and traffic you will only have time for 3 places for one day by car. To see 4 places within 10-hours might not be possible. That’s why we suggest you do 3 activities if you don’t want to pay surcharges. Also, traveling time between places will take about 60 minutes & From Seoul to Nami area will take about 1.5 hours. (3 hours for the round trip).

The best Private Car One Day Trip Outside of Seoul:

1 Petite France

Get picked up from your hotel by 10:00 AM and arrive 11:30 AM to Petite France (Seoul -> Petite France/ Nami area, 1.5 hours, without traffic). Randomly built on the Korean countryside is Petite France – a French Folk Village filled with fairylike decorations and rooms filled with French items such as dolls, furniture, and other home interior items.

How to book!

Very easy from mobile or pc click here or the link below and put in what date, number of people, pick up address, tour time and finally if you choose BEST OF AROUND SEOUL itinerary you will go to all these places I mentioned above OR you could customize your trip by writing down which alternative places you want to go to in order, in the SPECIAL REQUESTS box. You can also make small changes in the best of Seoul itinerary, for example, a different drop off place just write it in the SPECIAL REQUESTS box. :)

What car should I choose? 

There are 3 car types to choose from:
Sedan/small Van (passengers 4 people)
Limo-Van (passengers 9 people)
Large van (passengers 13 people).

If you are 4 people or fewer the small van would suit you. However, if you are 4 people I would still like to recommend the Limo Van because there’s more space for you and your bags and it’s also a more comfortable ride, which is especially important if you travel with kids or elderly. So choose wisely and I hope you enjoy your ride and the sights of Seoul city!
