    It was a great tour as it helps my wife and I to go around Seoul without getting lost as we are over 60s without any company. Tour guide was helpful and friendly.

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.

    Great tour if you want a good snapshot of the city. Pickup at the doorstep if your hotel. The tour guide Soo has good knowledge on the sites and very accomodating. Try to avoid purchases in the ginseng and red pine tour as it can be more expensive for tourist. Your can find cheaper at stores outside or online.

    Out tour guide was amazing. She is very good and very accommodating. She deserves a raise!!! And the destinations of this tour is also good.

    The visit was all right but since it was my second time in Seoul, I had signed up for a similar tour during my first trip. This time, I brought my family with me and so, I wanted them to learn about these places. Unfortunately, the guide did not give much commentary and we skipped the whole picturesque picture of the part of the palace that overlooks the lake altogether. The stops involved her just letting us know what time we need to be back at the bus before letting us off to explore on our own. The guide was nice though but I had a measure of comparison and thus, it was underwhelming for me this time around.

    Our tour guide Chloe was very kind and informative. She makes sure to check on us and explains the tourist spots in detail. :)

    good tour if you'd like to go around Seoul, looking at the temple and palaces without the hassle. it was very rushed and wasn't able to complete the whole museum before having to leave again. if you can make your way round the city on your own, would not recommend this tour solely on the fact that it was very rushed and didn't enjoy not having the time to take the photos I wanted. lunch was great though! 10/10

    Aside from the very amazing sceneries of Seoul, Korea’s history is very interesting. Having a guide during the tour is very helpful as they can provide you the information which will make you understand and appreciate the Korea’s history better.
