Overview

The best morning half-day tour to start off your day in Korea! Have a time-leaping journey between traditional and modern Korea with a tour guide of plentiful historical knowledge!

Learn about the rich culture and long history of Korea through this educational tour
✓ Be amazed at the magnificent architecture of one of Korea's most beautiful palaces Gyeongbokgung.
✓ Enjoy a recreation of an ancient ceremony
✓ Relax your mind and soul with a peaceful visit to Jogyesa Temple

✓ Presidential Blue House 
You will pass by Blue House, which is the official residence of the president of South Korea. The unique and beautifully designed building has an eye-catching feature- the blue tiles which blend smoothly with Bugaksan Mountain in the background.

✓ Gyeongbokgung Palace
Built in 1395, Gyeongbokgung Palace is arguably the most beautiful and remains the largest of all five palaces, with beautiful buildings such as Gyeonghoeru and Hyangwonjeong Pavilions which are relatively intact both on top of ponds.



✓ Royal Guard Changing Ceremony
The Royal Changing of Guards Ceremony is a great way to experience a rare traditional scene in Korea. It performs the ceremony of the royal guards of Joseon Dynasty by guarding the Gwanghwamun Gate, the entrance of Gyeongbokgung Palace where the king ruled the country.


✓ National Folk Museum
Located right inside of Gyeongbokgung Palace, the Museum displays numerous traditional antiques and historical artifacts. The museum provides educational and cultural opportunities to better understand and experience the traditional Korean lifestyle.

✓ Jogyesa Temple 
As the very center of Zen Buddhism in Korea, the temple is surrounded by 500-year-old trees that have witnessed both old and new Korea.  Just chill with the gift the mother nature provides and free yourself from all the thoughts in your mind.


✓ Korean Ginseng Center
Make a quick stop here, and find out why Koreans love ginseng so much.
