    Very friendly tour guide. However the last stop on the red pine oil was extremely disappointing. Did not see any value having a Filipino presenting a Korean product.

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.

    The tour guides, and transportation were fantastic. However, I felt that the Ginseng museum and the makeup place (I think it was in replacement of the Amethyst factory, not sure) were unnecessary. It felt like we were lured there to make our purchases. Nothing really note-worthy of the place. It may seem like a good place to go since it's a factory of some sort but it's more of a place to make you buy really expensive Ginseng and to make you buy makeups you can buy in Myeongdong. I'm a little bit mad that I paid for this tour to get lured into a tourist trap. The palace tour was what we liked. The food was traditional Korean food. It was good.

    The tour was really just okay. Didn’y really like the product demonstrations. I think we couldv’e better used our time for something else rather than sit and listen to them sell their products to us.

    The whole tour was very nice. The temple and palace we have been to were awesome. It was a very good Seoul experience. Thank you

    Informative tour of Seoul's palaces and temple. Erica was very prompt and speaks really well.
  • Tze Yong 9 Jun 2018
    It was a great experience! Managed to view many places of interest in a day. The guide was friendly and helpful.

    A good experience, was able to learn Korean History especially their religion. Our guide speaks good english. We enjoyed it.
  • Sally 7 Jun 2018
    My guide was great! Sonya thank you! She was very friendly, knowledgeable, and flexible. She speaks English very well, too. It is a fast paced event as some other reviewers have said-especially the morning part. Four star is because there was delay not related to traffic. It’s worth the money because it covers a lot without having to walk a lot (compared to if your doing it on your own). Plus you get history lesson that’s worth it and makes it more real than just looking at it.

    nice tour guide. will definitely purchase this activity again.
  • ZINA MARLYN 5 Jun 2018
    The tour took us to 2 palaces, a temple, a museum and to Insadong. Our tour guide Yeoni gave us a very informative description of these places. She also volunteered to take our pictures and suggested spots where a nice picture can be taken. All in all, we enjoyed the tour and learned so much about the Korean culture.
