OUR STORY

YOUR GUIDE, YOUR FRIEND

Established in the year 2012, ARTEE is the first pedicab tour company in Seoul. The name was inspired from AR-TEE “아띠” which means old and good friend. Our mission is to become a local friend who can take you to explore Seoul up close and person and introducing the must-doʼs in Seoul. We pride ourselves on discovering the best places, whether theyʼre hidden gems, up-and-coming properties, or well-established classics. Additionally, we aim to provide unique and memorable experiences that educate, entertain, inspire, and highlight the best of Seoulʼs rich culture and history

WE GO WAY BACK

Founded by two buddies, InJae and Vinny were friends back in high school in Boston, America. It all started when both of them was working as pedicab riders after graduating and fell in love with the job. After coming back from America, InJae decided to follow his heart and open the first ever pedicab company in Korea, Artee Riders Club. With the knowledge of valuable places that introduces Seoulʼs hidden and memorial places, IJ was eager to share these stories to his customers that ride on his pedicab. Our team has grown so much since then. From two pedicab to 20 pedicabs, from two riders to forty riders that we proud of, and discovering more of our cityʼs hidden places each day. Started in Seochon and slowly we have extended to Bukchon, Jongno, Jeongdong & Myeongdong.
