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 along the serene Jogyesa Buddhist Temple and peruse crafts and antiques at Insadong Street. End the tour with a convenient drop off back at your hotel.
