    Picked up by tour guide was punctual and introduction of the tour was lively. Tour van was cleaned and comfortable. Group was manageable just perfect for two guides in English and another in Mandarin. Went to a Buddhist temple and so some protestor with ply cards outside the temple interesting. Palace was grand.

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!

    arrived at an alternative palace which was the smallest to catch the change of guard only to realise that it was temp. cancelled due to summer. if this was the case, would have preferred a change to a bigger palace like changdeokgung palace (UNESCO site) as an alternative itinerary. Day trip ended at 3 as I intended to stay longer till night time at the final spot - Seoul Tower. Cable car tickets not included.

    We are a group of 7 people and only 3 people were at the lobby exactly on time because some of my colleagues had to change their clothes because of rain. Mqybe that's why the guide didn't notice us and so we were left. We tried to call klook and their local operator went back for us. Thank you klook for going back for us. Till our next booking. :)
  • DIANE 16 Jun 2018
    Really enjoyed this tour! Our tour guide is really nice and can speak english fluently.
  • Sharlene 15 Jun 2018
    the morning and afternoon tour guide were really good and very nice. no hassle at all we enjoyed it a lot
  • Rachelle 10 Jun 2018
    I initially thought we will not be picked up as there was no advise or reminder about the pick up time and place. We were advised that meet up time was 8:50 am but they showed up at 9:05. I nearly messaged the local contact to ask if we might have been forgotten. Morning tour was a bit rushed, tour guide walks so fast and I have kids and senior with me. We finished an hour and half early than what was indicated. But all in all the tour was nice since we were able to go to many places in the city. Tour guide, though, rushing was nice and open to entertaining questions even those topics outside tour (like best transpo to get from here to there). Lunch included was not so ok as well, cold and kimchi seems not fresh
  • Ka Wai Jupiter 30 May 2018
    the tour rundown is good only if they can cut short for the Ginzeng too expensive shop as no body is interested. So May be we can have more than 20 mins time for lunch
  • RAMSES 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.
  • ANNA ERLVIE 13 Apr 2018
    Our tour guide, Chloe, is amazing. She’s funny and patient. My 7-year old son adores him. The tour is fantastic. Very much recommended.
