The tour was great! Our tour guide, Yeoni, was super friendly and knowledgeable. We saw the Buddhist temple, one palace, ginseng center, insadong, red pine oil, namdaemun, and we were provided lunch. Yeoni helped us take some good pictures and she was very personable. 100% recommended! -Eva from Kansas City, Missouri, USA

El palacio Gyeongbok ofrece recorridos guiados en español a partir del 17 de junio. Son los viernes y sábados a las 10:30 am y 3:00 pm.
Mi marido y yo hemos tenido la suerte de ser los primeros turistas en hacer la visita y merece la pena. La guía un encanto. Los interesados deberán dirigirse al centro de información dentro de la puerta Heungnyemun. Nosotros aprovechamos para ver antes el cambio de guardia que es a las 10:00.
Good exposure to Korean culture but guide could have been more informative

Along with my wife and daughter, I had a good time visiting the Jyeongsoo Temple, the Gyeongbok Palace and attached museum and the Korean folk village. The last of these was the best, such a wonderful place! The sad thing however is that our guide did not take us around the folk village. If there were explanations of the objects and exhibits we saw, that would have been OK, but that facility was not available - surprising because so many foreign tourists come there. We had so many cultural questions, but our guide was not around to ask for information. So much to see there, but she gave us only 80 minutes to go around. Instead of leaving at 3:20, we could have easily left at 4 pm. After all we paid for a full day tour.
