    Katie our tour guide was really nice. She explained everything and answered questions about the history. Also, she gladly took pictures for my family. The only problem but I don't think it's a big deal was the stop at the ginseng center. I'm with my kids and they were so tired because it was so hot that day but still we need to listen about the importance about ginseng and they tried selling their stuff to us. That's the only thing I don't like because I was carrying my son and the girl keeps on talking about it trying to sell thier product and it's not cheap some cost $100-500. Back to the tour it was really nice and interesting.

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.

    Great way to see the main sights in Seoul on our first day. Daria was great tour guide who kept our group moving along.
  • Cristina*** 22 May 2017
    Email stated pickup time was 745, the day before, the agent left a message with our hotel front desk that it will be moved to 855 in the morning. From then onwards, the whole tour went smoothly. It was a great experience to visit the places with a tour guide, otherwise, you will not learn what those places are all about. Two thumbs up!

  • Remelee*** 10 Apr 2017
    Our guide was very informative about Korean history. However, as in most tours the pace of the tour seemed rushd as we had to be at the palace gate by 11am for the changing of the guards. Despite the rush we were not able to get a good full view of the changing of the guards as there were just a lot of tourists that day.

    Friendly and informative tour guide. The tour is great for first time travelers to Seoul.
  • Catherine*** 20 Feb 2017
    We went on a Saturday, while they were setting up for a rally on the opposite street near the city hall. I would not advise to go on a weekend as there are so. many. tourists. not good for your photos! Hehe. Though it was very enlightening to see the temples and to know the history behind it. We were also able to witness the changing of guards ceremony at 11:00am.

    The tour guide, is very good. He explained every point, in every area. So we know about the culture and history of palace, emperor, etc. awesome, thanks to K-Look. 👍
  • Jane* 17 Dec 2016
    I enjoyed touring the palace and folk museum though would prefer more guided explanations of exhibit rather than just let us go around and read of the labels on the wall. Also would prefer less time at ginseng centre.
