I booked this tour for me and my daughter, as Changdeokgung palace and Bukchon Hanok Village are famous attractions within South Korea. I would recommend this tour for anyone who wants to see Changdeokgung Palace and Bukchon Hanok Village. We had a lovely and amazing tour guide named Jenny. She was very friendly and her English was well spoken, which was helpful as we do not understand Korean. Jenny explained things smoothly and you could tell she was very knowledgeable about the history of the palace and Bukchon Hanok Village. We had a really good time and found the Korean history very interesting. Personally, I would like to thank Jenny and recommend her to anyone who is looking to do this tour.

This was a wonderful tour with Jung, our great guide. Jung arrived ahead of time for our hotel pickup with the driver and a minivan. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised that we would be the only ones going on the tour. The first stop was in Bukchon Hanok Village in downtown Seoul. This area is located between several old Palaces and is where nobles and wealthy have lived for over 600 years. The exteriors of the houses and now shops are maintained historically intact. The weather was perfect for a stroll around to view these old houses. Be forewarned that there is a bit of walking up and down some elevation involved with this part of the tour. Next stop was the Jongmyo Confucian shrine dedicated to the memorial services for deceased royalty of the Korean Joseon Dynasty 13921897. The original Jongmyo shrine was destroyed by fire in the Japanese invasions of Korea 1590's, then rebuilt in 1608. Unlike many other buildings damaged or destroyed during WWII these are not recent reconstructions. The Shrine is located in a very tranquil park like setting, again there is a fair bit of walking involved on mostly flat ground or stone paths. The onsite guide was very informative during the English tour. The last stop was at the Changdeokgung Palace. The palace was originally built in very early 1400's, but has been destroyed and rebuilt several times since then. This is one of five grand palaces in Seoul. Korea's last Emperor lived here until his death in 1926. The buildings were very ornate and it is possible to peak inside some of the residence buildings. Jung was a great guide and most helpful throughout the tour. This tour is a unique opportunity to visit two UNESCO sites in a morning.
