There are 5 important palaces you don’t want to miss and they are the most popular places for visitors. What is first impression of the word "Palace"? Place for kings and noble families? It is true but only the part of it. You will see the area where kings and families lived with 2000 people ruled whole nation. There is only parts of palaces remain which makes many people find they are only for king and family. Palace was the place for discussion how to rule the country. The palace was like a huge company runs a big organization, nation where 2000 people are working together inside. Most people now understand the palace only for king and family after modern city development.

Great day out exploring Seoul
Oct 2018 • Business
This tour was a great way to see Seoul if you have limited time. The tour went to a Buddhist Temple, 2 Palaces, Insadong & Namdaemun markets with a traditional lunch provided. The tour also went to a Ginseng shop & a Pine Oil shop - these were interesting but they were 'sales' stops to buy these products .... in my opinion these wasted quite a bit of time that could have been spent at the tourist attractions. The guide on the day was friendly and knowledgeable, was interesting hearing the information that she discussed at the Palaces.

Excellent tour with Michelle and Mr. Song
I had a fantastic time on the All in one Full-day Tour 1 in Seoul with my tour guide, Michelle, and Mr. Song, the group’s outstanding driver. It was a rainy day with a mix of people from the age of 8 to older retirees. I was impressed with how much we were able to see despite the less than ideal weather. There are a couple of stops where you’re encouraged to buy things like ginseng or red pine products, however, at no time did I ever feel like I had to buy anything. Lunch was also nice and a good break from the rain. We ended up going to Bukchon Hanok Village in the afternoon and that was good since the streets are stone so we didn’t have to walk around in the mud. I would definitely use this tour company again and I think that as long as you know that you’ll have a couple of stops where you’re shown touristy things to buy, you’ll have a good time. I think they did a great job getting the group where we wanted to go safely and showing us a great deal of the city on a day when it’s pretty difficult to get around on your own.
