a quick trip into Seoul to see the highlights

So you are stopping by Korea. We would love to have you longer, but still grateful for the opportunity to show you the highlights of our country. My goal is to give you the best possible time so that you come back again for a longer, more thoroughly planned out trip to Korea next time.

We will tour through Seoul, which has been the capital of Korea for the last 600 years. So many stories, so little time. We will start by watching the changing of the guard ceremony which takes place in front of one of the palaces. Afterwards, I will take you through the palace itself, walking us through history as well as the life of a Korean during that time. We will talk about the birth, the life, the death. . . and even go so far as talking about the afterlife of a Korean and how it shapes our society. This is a great tour to start with and will give you a great foundation about our culture and heritage.


-Pickup from your hotel

A Recent Review of this tour

Rob is a friendly guide totally fluent in English. He tries his best to accommodate one's program during the visit. Pace is a bit slow if you are in a hurry but just right if you like to take your time. He is knowledgeable, on time and extremely courteous. I do recommend him for a private visit in Korea.
