This tour was really enjoyable and interesting. We did it early in our trip to Korea and our guide, Jason, gave us so much information about Korean history and culture that was really valuable for the rest of our trip. Jason was fantastic and really knowledgeable.
We got to wander around both the fortress and the village. We tried archery at the fortress. My son’s favourite was the traditional festival dancing at the folk village. I liked the folk museum display. The traditional lunch was great.

Amazing visit had been made. Interesting things to see around Hwaseong Fortress and lovely views at Korean Folk Village Tour. Our tour guide Youn is very professional to provide hospitality during our visit. For overall view, it is a wonderful journey instead.

I was very excited to join this tour and happy they tour operator could accommodate me as a single traveler and go along with another group. The fortress itself is rather nothing that spectacular if I'm honest. The show at the palace was very good and happy to see that along with how they lived in the past. The folk village was very interesting, but extremely disappointing the tour guide cut the time short. Much more time was needed there because after lunch, there was plenty to explore. The guide said we were suppose to go to one more destination, but they cancelled the tour early due to traffic excuse, so effectively what was meant to be an entire day, was only 3/4 of a day. I would suggest just take the train to the village and spend a day there, especially if you have a family.

We took this full day tour. The pick up from the Hotel was exactly on time. A small group of only 8 of us in the mini van with a Guide. We were not satisfied with the Guide. She had limited knowledge about the fortress and the temporary Palace. She was visiting the Fortress after one year! The tour includes the 'trolley in the fortress', as it is a vast area and would be very tiresome to cover all the grounds on foot. The surroundings and the grounds are lush green and well maintained. (if you are on your own, do check the free 'shows/acts' that they have; inquire at the ticket counter). The Palace is a small one, as it was a temporary one of the King. Though well maintained and clean. The trolley tour around the fortress has the facility of a commentary in 4 languages. But you have to bring your own ear plug.
The fortress grounds are in the city itself and the fort is not an independent / self enclosed within wall boundaries. City roads run in and around the fort boundary walls.
The Korean Folk Village is a must visit. (in the Suwan township). About 15 - 20 minutes drive from the fort. It has been built as a tourist attraction about 40 yrs back. And interesting to visit. Do not miss the free local dance shows and other performances. When we visited, the time was between 2 pm to 4 pm. With a performance every half hour. Our Guide did not permit us to see all the shows. Which was very disappointing and sad. As after this, it was a visit to the Ginsen showroom in Seoul city. Which can be missed or shortened. If you are on this tour, insist to see the shows from 2 pm to 330pm.
The local cuisine lunch at Suwan was good. I had a local veg dish - bibimbap. It was better here than the one I had in Seoul.
The Ginsen showroom in Seoul is of a local business house. A very posh and lavish office building and showroom. The interesting part of this visit was getting knowledge and understanding of the Ginsen medicinal plant, as to, how it is grown and its various varieties. It is an expensive product. So, I feel, one should do an independent research as to where to buy from and what brand. At the airport we saw that Samsung also sells Ginsen. An enjoyable day. Though it was a warm day in Seoul
