Overview

Morning Palace Tour
The best morning tour to start off your day in Korea. Have a short time-leaping journey between traditional and modern Korea with tour guide of plentiful historical knowledge. Just sit back and enjoy the ride while your tour guide takes you to Korea's most historical highlights.

✓ Presidential Blue House 
The signature markings, Blue tiles will catch your attention right in the moment you enter the premises. The blue tiles and the smooth roof blended beautifully with Mt. Bugaksan in the backdrop will literally drop your jaw.

✓ 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 guards performed the given task by guarding Gwanghwamoon, the entrance of Gyeongbokgung Palace where the king ruled the country. Since 1469, the ceremony has taken place and the reenactment of the original ceremony began from 1996. You will go back to the Joseon Dynasty Era and experience this traditional event in the down town Seoul today.

✓ National Folk Museum
Located right inside of Gyeongbokgung palace, it displays numerous Korean's traditional antiques and historical artifacts that were used in the daily lives of Korean people in the past. You will be amazed at how much lives of Korean have changed in such a short amount of time.

✓ Jogyesa Temple 
The very center of Zen Buddhism in Korea. Surrounded by 500 years old trees that have witnessed both old and new Korea. Just chill with the gift of the mother nature and free yourself from all the thoughts in your mind.

✓ Korean Ginseng Center
Quick stop at Gingseng Center. Korean's admirable love for ginseng. You may find out why.
