What We Love:

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.

Enjoy the session. Lunch was good, guide was friendly and nice. She explained very well too! Recommended~


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.


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! :)


I really luked this tour with one exceptuon. During the market section of the tour there are stops at the Gunseng- and Amethyst Centres, as well as an extended lunch break at a shopping street. The time for tgese activitiea ahoyld be cut back to have more tume at the palaces and the temple. Especially the morning visit of yhe palace felt very rushed.


Very nice experience! Friendly english-speaking guide
