What To Expect

Start your morning of Korean culture with a tour of Seoul's largest (and arguably most beautiful) palace. Gyeongbokgung Palace, built in the 1300s, has been destroyed and reconstructed many times, but you'll be relieved it's still here today for you to stroll the spacious grounds, intricate architecture and grand pavilions. Combine this with a guided visit of the National Folk Museum and your knowledge of Korean history will be fit to burst! Along the way, your informative tour guide will relate facts about areas of interest, particularly related to the distinguished Joseon Dynasty. Realize the deep significance of Buddhism in Korean culture at Jogyesa Temple, a tranquil refuge from the megacity outside and the leading center of Zen Buddhism in Korea.

    easy redemption and no lines at all.. highly recommended :)
  • Paula Kaye 10 Jul 2018
    This tour was definitely worth its value! We went to Petit France first which was great because we got the see the Marionette show at 11. The time for this place is kind of lacking so you might want to consider going back or maybe even go on your own! Nami Island was great and we had more than enough time to explore the whole area. Definitely one of the best sceneries in SK.

    Very good guide , fast and furious. But good experience !

    The tour was okay and convenient but honestly the places were near to one another so if you’re up to it you can just go there on your own so that you can explore the place on your own pace and would not have to hurry in taking a picture or hurriedly move from one place or wait for the group. It was so crowded on the day when I had the tour so I only really listened to the tour guide’s explanation of the landmark. The tour guide is what really saved this tour for me. She was very knowledgeable and the way she tells the story is so engaging that you are able to appreciate the events that took place in history. If you are with elderly or are in a big group I suggest to just book this tour for the convenience of it. However, if you are alone or a group of 2-5 then just go on your own! Public transportation is so easy to learn and is actually quite an experience! Some landmarks also have a direct stop in the train so you wouldn’t really need to walk far once you exit the station! Oh! And yes, we were able to drive by the blue house!
