Description

While Seoul's cityscape is dominated by skyscrapers now, the masterpieces of architecture from the Joseon dynasty still stand. You'll see the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Changdeokgung with the afternoon tour, and modern and century-old marvels on the morning tour.

Temples, palaces, and the presidential residence – that's just some of what you'll see. With the option of the morning or afternoon tour, you'll encounter some of the city's most impressive sights.

In the morning you'll pass Deoksugung Palace, Seoul Station, and Cheonggyecheon Stream before witnessing the changing of the guard at Gyeongbokgung, where the guards roam in colorful uniforms. You'll end the tour with a feeling of serenity in the grounds of Jogyesa Temple.

The afternoon tour will bring you to a village of traditional Korean houses, Namsangol Hanok, the beautiful UNESCO-listed Changdeokgung Palace, and the Insadong Antique Shop Alley and Namdaemun Market for the chance to bring back some amazing souvenirs.
