Great tour

We had a really pleasant and informative time on this tour! I highly recommend it for a good experience learning more about Korea and viewing some of the historical sites. Jay was our guide, and he was very kind, well-informed, and experienced.
Awesome tour!

My sister and I did this tour on our first day after we arrived in SK, and it was definitely worth waking up early in the morning despite the jet lag. We wanted to make sure we get an introduction to the country's history and culture, and this was perfect! The tour guide (Jack) is very knowledgeable and we learned so much from him in this short three-hour tour. He is also quite the funny guy, and he made sure we get amazing photos at the best spots. The tour started near the City Hall station, then passed Cheonggyecheon Stream, then Gwanghamun. We then went inside Gyeongbokgung Palace, and after went to the Bukchon Hanok Village. We then took a bus towards Insadong area where the tour ended.

P.S. This is a walking tour so make sure to wear comfortable shoes. There are lots to see in three hours, so there could be some power-walking and also some inclines. :)
Also, Insadong has lots of shops and restaurants, so make sure to spend some time there after the tour.
Informative with Personal Touches

My tour guide for the experience was Catherine, who was so patient, kind and fun. She was very knowledgeable about each tour stop, and also took the time to explain interesting happenings on the street as we walked - as well as make recommendations on where else to visit while in Korea. She added personal stories and anecdotes which were unique and made the experience that much more rich. I would recommend this walking tour to anyone visiting Seoul!
A must do! Worth every penny.

I had the pleasure of having Johyeon as my guide. I enjoyed my tour very much. He is very knowledgeable and could answer every questions that i asked. He is good at telling stories and explaining the symbolism and background of Korea’s history. I could tell that he love his job. If you want in- depth details of the Gyeongbokgung Palace and of Joseon dynasty, then this is it. It is worth every penny.
Great context in Seoul with history

Jay was an excellent tour guide for this tour as he is very knowledgeable about history and was very accommodating to what we wanted and needed.

Going to at least one of the five palaces in Seoul to understand the history, eras, and ceremonies is very helpful when visiting others on your own. We had context from this tour.
