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 tourguide Sonya is really really nice, helpful and articulate in English. However there was no time for us to do the hanbok in the palace. Haha

  • YI HUI 24 Jan 2018
    meeting time was set to be 9am but i have received continuously few calls around 850am and the tour guide didn't even greet us but instead showed us her unpleasant face which i personally think it is not very professional as a tour guide. my mood was ruined and best of all I WASNT EVEN LATE AT ALL. i seriously have no idea why she was in a hurry when they are only another 2 person joining us.
