Our 6 hour tour with Paul was an overall fantastic experience. His breadth of knowledge is vast and his enthusiasm was palpable throughout the entire tour. Surprisingly, we really enjoyed the museum in the palace. Taking the local bus and enjoying traditional food in the busy market were definitely some of the highlights for us as well. I do think that we could have spent a little less time in the palace (a little too much historical details covered by Paul here) so that we could have gone through the rest of the tour at a more relaxed pace. Be ready to walk around 5 miles at a pretty brisk pace; don’t forget the water bottle. At the end of the tour when Paul drops you off at Insadong, stay for a while and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea at one of the many tea shops with a view to the street below.

We had a wonderful morning with our guide Joy. She explained us many things about the palace, the architecture and the way people lived there. She also made some nice pictures for our family. Would definitely recommend to take this tour.

I liked the explanations given throughout the course and the meaning of the paintings on the ceilings. point to improve: sometimes there was a lot of noise. I wish the guide spoke louder. Otherwise, I am very satisfied with the visit.

Paul did a great job. We saw the old and new sides of Soul. He explained the sights very detailed and interesting. I recommend this tour very much as it is a great chance to see many must see places. Thanks again Paul.

not far from the palace. staff was loving and helpful
