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.

    The tour is okay with me. If you want to experience more of the temple, book the whole day tour

    Well I'm not really impressed with how the tour went. The actual changing of guards in the palace is far from how it is shown on the picture. Also, the guide (Sonya) is always in a hurry. She does take pictures of the tourists but even before you could go to the spot she immediately clicks the button and counts without asking if you are ready. She can explain a lot though, is funny and approachable.

    A great way to explore Korea's history and culture. We just hope we had more time to explore the city because we just explored the morning tour.

    It was a quick introduction about Korean culture and history. Our guide Jay Song was realy nice and accommodating. Not really recommended for elderly, must walk fast dan far.

    Sonya was a bit rude on sone of her actions. We also felt like the tour was being shortened to attend to time constraints we were there on time but the driver was late by 10 mins. On the positive side she explained well the history and life of koreans before.
