The Basics

Bukchon Hanok Village is well worth a visit. Most sightseeing tours of the Korean capital include a visit to the neighborhood, as well as Jogyesa Temple, the Blue House, Insadong, and the two nearby palaces. Those who want to learn more about this Joseon Dynasty neighborhood can opt for a small-group tour of the village. For a unique photo op, don a traditionalhanbok for a professional photo shoot in the picturesque setting.

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!

The palace and chafing of the guard is quite wonderful and colorful, but The Buddhist temple with all the chrysanthemums is the best!It almost puts Longwood Gardens in PA to shame!!

This was such a great tour with so much information. I actually got to do the tour alone and I felt like I got to see so much. I learned so much about history and Korean design. I think I’d I had done this without the tour I wouldn’t have gotten much out of it but pictures. There is so much information that isn’t shared without this tour! The guide was wonderful and he took many great photos of me in different parts! I would recommend this to anyone interested in history and Koran culture!!
