What To Expect

This full day tour has a choc-a-block itinerary, designed to give you a total Seoul immersion. Marvel at the architecture of one of Seoul's most beautiful palaces, Gyeongbokgung. Resulting from a stormy history, ongoing reconstructions mean you can see original portions alongside modern efforts to restore it to its former glory. Reminisce to bygone days with a guided visit of the National Folk Museum before a tasty local lunch. After you're fully sated, you'll set off to visit palace no.2, UNESCO-listed Changdeokgung, a perfectly preserved architectural example from the Joseon Dynasty. Walk amongst the serenity of Jogyesa Buddhist Temple, peruse crafts and antiques on Insadong Street and pick up a holiday memento at Namdaemun before a comfortable transfer back to your hotel.

    A great tour if this is your first time in South Korea and you will like to explore the Palaces. No worries about how to get there and what to see.
  • Earl*** 30 Jul 2017
    Palaces were amazing. Although you could go to these palaces on your own. It's still better to go with a guide. Our guide sonya was very informative and helpful.. Great tour
  • Ara*** 5 Jul 2017
    I recommend our tour guide, Eunseo Kim, for extending her assistance even beyond the tour hours/period. She is a great communicator as we learned a lot about the tourist spots included in the trip. Aside from this, she is also fun to be with and overly a very kind person. Hoping that the hanbok experience can also be included in the tour.
  • Cara*** 10 Jun 2017
    It rained during our tour but our guide made everything fun! Kudos to Sunny for being very fun and entertaining. She's the best tour guide we had during our stay. Would definitely coma back!
  • Lysther*** 30 Apr 2017
    The tour we had was worth the money we paid for this. The tour guide (the first one i forgot the name..sorry) and Katie, whom we found out had visited the PH were very accomodating. We felt that we had our very own and personal tour guide. The itenerary for this tour was very good. Younill have the glimpse of everything that you needed to see esp the historical palaces and the marketplaces in insadong and namdaemun where you can buy a lot of cheap stuff. Its good that I booked this tour with Klook. Til next time.

    Our tour guide is a friendly and nice korean lady. She explained to us the history during our visits to the Palaces, Temples and markets. Our lunch is great too.
  • LOVELY*** 3 Dec 2016
    It's so nice and fun to be able to roam some of Seoul's landmarks for such an afforadable price - lunch and trabsportation included! Jay Song, our guide for the day is so professional and considerate. He is so organized and helps us to be ahead of our schedule so we can have some shoppings in Insa-dong and Namdaenum Market despite the scheduled protest today. Thank you Seoul City Tours for such an amazing experience! Jay Song deserves a raise! :)
