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.

    So so tour.. Visited one temple, one palace and the ginseng shop. You basically paid for the transportation.. And the ginseng shop is a bit far which eats up the time. At the end, they sell you their products. Not much insight about the places.. Maybe it would have been better if it was a walking tour to get more insight.

    The tour started on time. Our guide Gemma can speak english well. Was able to watch the changing of the guards

    We had a great time touring the city with Sonya our tour guide. I feel that it is a bit rushed due to the fact that we need to be at the main entrance by 11 for the changing of guards. Otherwise, it was very informative as she was knowledgeable with the Korean history.
