    Hotel pick up was on time and our tour guide was great! We had enough time at each location to look around and take pictures.

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.

    Our tour guide was good and we enjoyed the Jogyesa Temple and Ginseng World tour but we didn’t get to see the Geongbukgung Palace which is what we are actually looking forward and the reason why we booked this tour. Instead, we were taken to Deoksugung Palace, which is also good but not what we expected. WE SHOULDVE BEEN INFORMED BEFOREHAND THAT THE GEONGBUKGUNG PALACE WILL BE CLOSED ON THE DAY OF OUR TOUR SO WE COULDVE MOVED THE TOUR TO ANOTHER DATE OR AT LEAST INFORM US THAT THERE WILL BE CHANGES TO THE TOUR. It’s not as if the Chinese New Year is unexpected. The tour company shouldve informed us beforehand. There was also no admission fees to the palaces during this time so we thought that the payment we made was not worth it... :( :( :(

    The tour guide picked us on time from our hotel. Really enjoyed the palace tour however i do feel that it was going too fast.

    Good experience will rebook again. Out tourist guide is very nice, she even told me stories about her personal life though I forgot her name already but she's very approachable and kind.

    The tour guide is very accommodating we've met fellow Filipinos during the tour. The experience is overall good, informative and fun! Thanks Klook!

    Our tour guide was a very nice and friendly lady. She explained on the history of Korea very clearly. We've always saw the palace on tv but being there to see it for ourselves was really a great experience.We also get to see the changing of guards performance. It's interesting!

    The tour is on time. The tour guide speaks very good english. She knows history very well and can explain it very clearly. This tour is highly recommended for all kinds of tourist.

    It was a fun time and we got to see a lot of different places around Seoul that I may not have gone to on my own. The guide was fun, the one criticism I would say is the group was a bit big we kept being late because people would wander off and it was hard to find them again.
