Palace and Temple Guide

Roam dynastic palaces and temples

Seoul 81 Booked

Get your Korean culture fix with this morning tour of a famed palace, museum and Buddhist temple in Seoul, supplemented by the expert knowledge of your English-speaking guide

  • Drive past and learn more about the President's pad, Blue House (or Cheongwadae)

  • Watch the changing of the guards and tour the spectacular Gyeongbokgung Palace

  • Visit the National Folk Museum to build your knowledge of Korean history

  • Visit tranquil Jogyesa Buddhist Temple, an important building for Zen Buddhism in Korea

  • Make a quick stop off at a Ginseng Center, one of Korea's major exports

What We Love:

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.

Very informative and fun to be guider by Sunni. Lovely girl and had so much cultural insight into the korean Dynasty


The Guide, Michelle is excellent. With the money we spent, we get excellent services.She even pointed us to the restaurant where we wanted to visit. Great services. The only problem is the confirmation. It took too long to confirm. It makes me hesitate to book within short period of times


All of the palaces in Seoul are amazing. We were fortunate enough to enjoy our visit this time during cherry blossom time. The history is very interesting and the place very peaceful and relaxing to just stroll and spend time.


[National Folk Museum of Korea] is located inside gyeongbukgung palace. Hence, one would have to walk right until the end of the main extrance of the palace in order to enter the museum. This museum had a display on a lot of korean's traditional antiques and crafts. Besides, there was also LCD display on korean history i.e. wordings, pronunciation, traditional wedding, etc. Certain displays were so real that it made me feel like as if I was going back in time. The museum is well maintained and organized.
