a walk through our country's heritage and past
Seoul 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.

Our 2nd day was even better. We had inexpensive Taxis almost waiting for us at Rob's chosen locations that helped me understand how Seoul 'fit together. ' We started at the original residential village and had a close up view of it's architecture. Then due to his game plan, we saw 10 very significant modern buildings including the just opened Lotte World Tower with drinks on the 123rd floor. I had a real feel for the city not possible with any other type tour. Book early for your Seoul tour. 5 *****
