Tourist Taxis

In an effort to improve foreign visitors' experiences with Korean taxi drivers, the government has designated certain taxi drivers as Goodwill Guide Taxis.

These drivers can speak English or Japanese well and display a special sticker in the rear window of the taxi.

You can call (02) 3431-5100 and ask for pickup by a driver who speaks English or one who speaks Japanese (all speak Korean).

The drivers can also serve as tour guides around Seoul, and generally carry pamphlets/brochures in the car.

There is no extra charge for the goodwill guide taxis; you just pay the meter fare.

K4E Note: Unfortunately, there is often no English-speaker in the dispatch office. The Korea Tourism Help Line can liaise for you. Contact them at 1330 (02-1330 from cell phone).
