    I love the experience. It's like watching the Korean period drama, having able to relate what I see in the series.

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.

    No need to worry how to get to the pickup point because they will fetch you from your hotel, which is really a good thing. Chloe was knowledgable and approachable.
  • Yong Tiam 15 May 2018
    A whole day of rain caused a major setback to our activities - was drenched the whole time sharing umbrella, couldn't explore much of the Gyeongbokgung palace as well due to the weather condition.

    no need to fall in line... would recommend to family and friends

    The tour guide was really good. Very patient even if some tourists have a lot of questions. The okaces might be easy to go to but having someone guide you and share a lot of information was what made the tour ver interesting. It was very unfortunate that it was raining during our tour. We would have enjoyed it better if it was not raining. Take out the blue house from the itinerary because even if it was not raining it’ll be difficult for everyone inside the bus to see it.
