Loved the tour. Since we went on a Tuesday so we visited Deoksugung Palace instead of Gyeongbokgung Palace, and we got to see the royal guard changing ceremony which was fun.
We visited a temple but I don’t believe it was Jogyesa Buddhist Temple as listed on the agenda.
Namdaemun Market was a lot of fun, you can pretty much find anything and everything there. Very interesting.
The tour guide was very nice. Would totally recommend it.
The places we went to are interesting but the guide specially the one who took care of Gyeongbokgung Palace, National Folklore Museum and Jogyesa Buddist Temple did not give justice to these places. She did not explain the background and stories of these places very well. She left us on our own practically the whole time. We don't mind the alone time but there should be some explanations at least at the start. Michelle the guide who took care of the second part of the tour was better. She explained the history behind Changdeokgung Palace in a very interesting manner. She explained the difference between Insadong and Namdaemun markets also which was very helpful.
We also had to wait for almost an hour before the tour started. We were left in the car and no one explained why there was a delay. Of course there were apologies made when the guide finally showed up but the waiting was just bad coz we could have slept some more as we arrived midnight.
