Journey into Korea's Heart

The tour invites you on a half-day historical and cultural journey under the guidance of a friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. As you walk through the urban landscapes of Seoul, you'll be immersed in fascinating narratives about Korea's history, politics, culture, and societal shifts. Throughout this immersive experience, you'll gain a deep understanding of Korea's past and present, making this more than just a sightseeing tour, it's a walk through time.

From Ancient Palaces to Urban Renewal

Your first stop, Deoksugung Palace, is a unique blend of traditional Korean and Western-style architecture, a testament to Korea's modernization efforts in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Next, step into the Donuimun Museum Village, a living museum that organizes cultural events and showcases traditional Korean houses. Here's a nugget of interest - the village also hosts pottery classes and traditional tea ceremonies!

Journey on to Gyeonghuigung Palace, the ‘Palace of Serenity’, and learn about its role as a secondary palace during the Joseon Dynasty. As you reach Gwanghwamun Square, note the buried time capsule, a silent promise to future generations. The tour concludes at Cheonggyecheon Stream, an urban renewal project that metamorphosed from a forgotten waterway to a tranquil oasis in the heart of Seoul. The stream is adorned with numerous bridges and art pieces, transforming your walk into an artistic exploration.
