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!

  • 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!

    Worth it! Katy is sooo kind and generous! Very Good service
  • Millete 13 Dec 2017
    Thanks to our tourist guide mr Jay song, that was really a very informative and fun your. They picked us up in the hotel just in time. In span of 8 hours we were able to know partly the history of the place and able to see nice spots. I'm sure will endorse it to my friends. Klook is a nice app to try. Hassle free and at the same time cheaper compared to other package your. Will definitely use this app on my future travels. Thank you very much for the wonderful experience.

    I went during the winter but the changing guard ceremony was cancelled due to the weather. The tour guide was rushing through everything so I think this could be improved. However, the lunch was fabulous!! We had daktori tang (spicy chicken stew) and kimchi stew. The daktori tang was the best! For the Korean folk village, it was an hour drive from Seoul. Would definitely recommend the folk village if you want to know more about Korean traditional culture. It is also the filming scene for some k dramas so you will like it if you are a k dramas fan.
