What To Expect

Gyeongbokgung Palace
Visit Gyeongbok Palace. 'Gyeongbok' means 'felicitous blessing'. It is the first palace that was built on the foundation of the Joseon Dynasty(1392-1910). As much as it is the most important palace in the history of the dynasty, it is also quite enormous. Perhaps due to the luckiness conveyed by the name 'Gyeongbok', this new dynasty was able to last 600 long years through glory and shame.

Bukchon Hanok Village
Bukchon Hanok Village is home to hundreds of traditional houses, called hanok, that date back to the Joseon Dynasty. The name Bukchon, which literally translates to "northern village," came about as the neighborhood lies north of two significant Seoul landmarks, Cheonggyecheon Stream and Jongno. Today, many of these hanoks operate as cultural centers, guesthouses, restaurants and tea houses, providing visitors with an opportunity to experience, learn and immerse themselves in traditional Korean culture. As Bukchon Hanok Village is an actual neighborhood with people's homes, visitors are advised to be respectful at all times while looking around.

Our Guide, Mia, picked us up at our Hotel on time. She took us all over Seoul to see the main places. My guide was very friendly and shared great information about Seoul.
This full day private Seoul tour was excellent which exceeded my expectations. The lunch at the Chengrangri market restaurant was a highlight! Highly recommend this tour!
Seoul full day tour with very professional guide

I was very satisfied with the tigy tours, which I contacted to better show Korea to customers from abroad.  A very knowledgeable guide, SJ's explanation of Korean culture and history was somewhat critical, but it was very interesting and there was a lot to learn.  The taste of the fried chicken in the Cheongnyangni Traditional Market that the guide took was excellent.  It was a tour that my customers were also very satisfied with.  I plan to continue to use the services of the ride tour in the future.

This is my second time using Tagy travel services. Kyungae replied promptly and was very helpful to organize our tour program.
It's always been a very pleasant experience as they are so meticulous about the schedule and time travel which is so important in a city like Seoul where traffic can be so crazy. Our tour guide Jay was so friendly and knowledgeable.
When you are not sure what to do as plans suddenly change. Their guide will come up with ideas and recommendations that have always been great.
I highly recommend sweet travel to anyone who wishes to visit Seoul and do more. Taxis and uber can be so hard to find and you really get lost in translation.
Thank you tagy travel for making my visits to Korea so memorable and convenient.
Memorable and enjoyable day tour

Jay Lee was highly recommended by a friend so we booked him for a day tour covering a visit to a strawberry farm, Garden of Morning Calm and Gangchon Rail Park. He is very responsive over What's App and fetched us punctually from our hotel. We appreciate his pleasant demeanor & humour & keeping us updated on the travelling time from each point of interest. He also brought us to a Korean restaurant for lunch on the way to Garden of Morning Calm. Price was reasonable and food was delicious.

As it is springtime, cherry blossoms and tulips were in full bloom @ the Garden and we ladies had a splendid time taking lots of beautiful photos. The bike paddling @ Gangchon Rail Park was very memorable and interesting. It was a wonderful experience to cycle through several tunnels with sound effects, bubble spray and disco music. Although the day tour is slightly pricey @ KRW 109500 per person (including the strawberry picking fees of KRW12000), it was worth it as it was a private tour. Thank you Jay for a wonderful tour & tip top service!
