    This is the best tour we had this trip. It's really a unique experience and would teach you about korean history and culture. It would take total of 2 to 3 hours roundtrip but it's worth it! Van used for the tour was very comfortable. Tour guide was very approachable and gave good recommendations.
  • MYRALYN 4 Feb 2019
    The ride to Minsok Korean Folk Village is smooth. The weather's not ao nice but it still push through.. The Guide, Ms. Sunny was very accomodating too. Thank you for that. It will be awesome if the weather's nice. but nonetheless, I liked it!
  • Nur Hidayah 16 Dec 2018
    Went to Minsok Korean Folk village then to Gwangmyeong cave. Both places are so mesmerizing. For Minsok Village is where Korean historic and traditional movies/dramas are filmed at. If you are interested abour learning about korean culture, it’s a place to go. There’s hanbok rental, mini theme park, performances plus horror houses. It’s a big area to get yourself immersed in and also to take tons of pictures. There a few restaurants there to grab lunch. As for Muslim travellers, I recommend the Terrace Green (It’s halal). Good food and friendly ppl. Gwangmyeong cave is wonderful and inside it there’s alot of new things that you seldom could see elsewhere. But there’s alot of stairs climbing. So if you are willing to climb stairs, this place is a must go. Credits to the guide Ha Kim too👍🏼👍🏼

    You not only have a fun day, you get to visit 3 sites. From a kdrama fangirl, the experience is surreal. Visiting Korean Folk Village must be on every fangirl list. From feeling giddy checking out familiar film locations of your fave historical kdrama. From watching the park's scheduled activites. From finding your oppa magistrate to my very first korean legit meal which is delicious if i may say so. To use your legs until they get weak from pedalling in Uiwang Railbike while watching the sun set. To watch the lightshow from Gwangmyeong Cave, to making a wish and learn the history of its miners. This activity from KSTORY is truly one for the books! (took me a while to select 6 photos here... for reals)

    finn and olivia was our tour guide. Their communication skill is well. Both of them can speak in english and chinese. so far tour was very convinient. we are only 5persons in a car. uiwang railbike is advisable. its not cold even winter. as they got cover. only few people come here..this is better than the gangchon railbike as lesser people. korean folk village is a must. this place is for learning korean history. how it looks like these kinds...its all in one there. also dont forget to watch their shows. the starlight garden oozoo. its very stunning at night. good for couples and family. can take a lot of photo there.. overall..very good experience.

    Our tourist guide Mr. Song and his colleagues are very organized. Everything was smooth sailing from start to finish. I love how he shared important details of Korean culture and history. My partner and I enjoyed this tour as we learned alot about Korean culture and way of life back in the day. Visiting Minsok Korean village is a must! The shows/performances were amusing and entertaining. The place is well kept, and they got great authentic Korean food. Kudos to Klook and Ktour story!
  • Michelle 14 Nov 2018
    Interesting tour of a less known part of korea. Actually very informative and eye opening of how korean lives in the past, history well told in Korean Folk Village and the Gyeongmeong cave. We was awed by the cave as to how creative the cave was made to attract tourist while preserving the history in itself. Three activity in a day is actually recommendable, we went to Korean Folk Village first, and was awaken by biking the rail and lastly wondered at the amazing cave. It's not tiring at all! One improvement though is hopefully there is a place (musollah) for the muslim to pray their solat. Thanks to Mr Song and Mr Ryan too, kind and help us to find halal restaurant in Korean Folk Village 😍
  • Delson 13 Nov 2018
    Hassle free tour to a less crowded part of Seoul. Minsok Village was interesting, though language of the performances were spoken in korea, the performance were interesting. Uiwang Rail Bike was nice but definitely can't compare to Gangchon's. Highlight of the tour was definitely Gwangmyeong Cave where is was cooling inside with a wine cellar. However part of the cave is not accessible to wheelchair.
  • Nguyen 12 Nov 2018
    Thank you Klook for excellent experience. Our tour guide Song and his manager was awesome, friendly, able to speak good English and handsome 🙂. Value for money, less crowded than Nami island, highly recommend to everyone. 1. Korean Folk Village: absolutely love this village because it reproduces almost intact image of an ancient Korean, very peaceful and fresh, vegetable gardens, ancient trees with colorful leaves ... included performances like farmer’s music, martial art on horseback, traditional wedding ceremony. 2. Uiwang Rail Bike: fun rail bike experience along Wangsong lake. 3. Gwangmyeong Cave: Amazing light shows c/w aquarium inside, also can make a wish of 'Long Life, Happiness and Peace' on a gold plaque and hang it on the wall of the golden road. There are many steps and stairs to climb up and down, so if you have weak knees, be careful.

    Very organized tour and love the places we visited. The meeting point in Myeongdong was very easy to locate. Our guide Ryan was awesome, very friendly and able to speak good English. I enjoyed the rail bike a lot and was able to enjoy the scenary. It was a good experience. Korean Folk Village is a great place for Kdrama lovers because many historical dramas were filmed there. Was delighted to see many familiar spots! Don't miss the performances at the village. Gwangmyeong Cave is one of the newer attractions offered in Korea. It was nice walking in the cave and you can enjoy a glass of wine in the wine bar located within the cave. I managed to purchase a bottle of berry wine( bokjunja) for only 18,000 won. Delicious and taste like ice wine. Well organized tour, punctual and value for money.
