What To Expect

You'll soon be imagining yourself in the days of yore with a tour of Seoul's cultural heritage, from the palaces of royalty to the ancient homes of ordinary people. Choose between two immersive tours and begin either tour with the beautiful pavilions and spacious grounds of Gyeongbokgung Palace. Then, your informative guide will lead you on a guided tour of the National Folk Museum to find out about the daily lives of Koreans spanning pre-historic times to the end of the Joseon Dynasty. Explore the peaceful grounds of Jogyesa Buddhist Temple before settling down for a traditional Korean meal. After lunch you can either experience a Joseon Dynasty throwback when you visit the Korean Folk Village, or see Seoul from a more modern perspective when you visit Insadong and the N Seoul Tower for a panoramic view of the city before heading to a classic Hanok VIllage. Walk amongst traditionally built houses, watch artisans in action at a handicraft workshop, join the audience of a folk performance, and even try your hand at traditional games such as arrow throwing and seesaw jumping!

  • JUVY ANN 12 May 2018
    The tour was managed by Seoul City Tour. It was good, but could have been better. It was rushed a bit, with hardly enough time to really enjoy and appreciate the attractions. We loved the Korean Folk Village and the lunch at Insadong.

  • Genevive 19 Mar 2018
    Our Palace tour and N Tower tour was great. We meet new people and our tour guide was so kind and approachable. Booking at Klook gives us a hustle free adventure trip in Seoul. More trips to come, Thanks Klook. 👌🏻

    The morning lady was very friendly, the tour went pretty quick. the afternoon korean folk village was fine, the tour guide was helpful with other questions but i feel like the tour was very rushed in the afternoon
  • April Marjorie 2 Mar 2018
    I think this tour is okay. It was nice to know their culture the places were beautiful. The problem was just that the tour guide was too much in a hurry we did not have the chance to enjoy buying souvenirs or photos. We ended an hour earlier than itinerary.
  • Faith Loren Cabais 17 Feb 2018
    The tour was great even though it was a bit rushed due to public holiday and I tour guide Katie did a pretty awesome job in guilding 30+ people by herself!
  • Breanna 17 Feb 2018
    Tour was overall good. However, like with all tours, it’s always very rushed. Didn’t have time to take nice photographs.
  • Philline Kate Vera 11 Feb 2018
    Visiting palaces did made us travel back in time, and appreciate Korean culture. Sonya speaks well in english, always smiling, helpful (most esp in taking photos, she knows where to get the best angles), very energetic and you’ll learn a lot from her. Gemma also did a great job.
  • Anna Beatriz 6 Jan 2018
    Daria, our tour guide, was really friendly and knowledgeable/informative about the different facts of Korea’s history. Tour was really a great deal and highly recommended!
