    What to Expect
    Meet your friendly local guide at your Seoul hotel and travel by comfortable coach through the capital city streets. Pay a visit to Jogyesa Temple, which is widely recognized as the top Buddhist temple in the nation. Once you’ve wandered the grounds head past the Blue house (Cheongwadae), where the current president resides. 

    Your knowledgeable guide will then take you to Gyeongbokgung Palace, where the royal family lived during the Joseon Dynasty. Learn how this 14th century structure was built and gain a deeper understanding of its iconic status as you wander the grounds learning about its architecture and traditions. While at Gyeongbokgung Palace, you’ll visit the National Folk Museum and learn about the history and culture of Korean residents. Galleries include information about traditional farming, hunting, royalty and aristocracy. 

    Next, you’ll venture to a traditional ginseng center, where you’ll learn about this medicinal staple. Enjoy a traditional Korean lunch in Insadong and relax while you tuck into a bowl of bibimbap (rice, vegetables and meat). Spend some time at your leisure wandering the shops and town streets before making your way to the North Seoul Tower.

    Stationed atop Mt Namsan, this incredible city landmark offers up stunning views from its towering observation deck. Once you’ve snapped some photos, head to Namsangol Hanok Village, where your guide will take you through the model village streets that offer a look at the Joseon Dynasty life. Check out various housing styles and incredible gardens as you guide points out key features and shares a bit of Korean history.

    Your tour ends with a stop at a local amethyst factory where you’ll learn about this precious stone before heading back to your hotel.

    It was absolutely mind-blowing to know the history of the Gyeongbokgung Palace. It would not have been possible to get all the information without the help of Erica. I have to give more than six stars to Erica Kim during this trip. I waited at the wrong place and missed the

    We were picked up first from our hotel and dropped off last, being the farthest in Dongdaemun from the rest of the tour group, and the tour driver picked us up a good few minutes earlier than the schedule (we were already waiting at the hotel lobby some 15 minutes beforehand).
