Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Korean Cultural Combo: Yongin MBC Dramia TV Set Tour and Korean Folk Village from Seoul. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
MBC dramia is a must visit for fans of period k dramas- jewel in the palace, dong Yi and the house of gu were shot there. We probably saw half the place on a half day but that was sufficient. The Folk Village was interesting with the many traditional performances, houses and displays.
The TV Set Tour was a bit of a disappointment to me at least.
It is not the most interesting place to visit when there is nothing happening there, so for fans of the dramas only. My children are fans and were telling me that which dramas were filmed in each of the sections we looked around. The countryside on the way there and back was a pleasant change from Seoul city.
The Korean Folk Village was exceptional. Our tour guide and tour schedule meant that we arrived at exactly the right time for the shows. The traditional and modern food available was just what I was looking for.
The tour guide was very helpful, beyond what I was expecting
STUDIO HAS VERY NICE HISTORICAL SETS TO SEE, GREAT LUNCH, VERY PERSONABLE EXPERIENCE, GREAT FOR THE KDRAMA JUNKIES.
It is really a very nice place to visit. However, time is too short and rush when we were at Yongin MBC Drama TV Set Tour. We would prefer to have a longer stay at Yongin to view the site. Tour guide, Ms Erica, was a very nice and friendly lady. She explained and gave us a better understanding of the houses that belongs to different part of the folks from Korea when we visited the Folk Village. Overall, I feel Yongin MBC Dramia TV Set Tour should be allowed as a 1 day tour and Folk Village as a separate tour on a half day basis. As it was snowing at Yongin and the floor was slippery due to the frozen water, both my mum and I fell during the tour as we were rushing through touring the site.
It turned out to be the most disappointing trip. We informed Viator when we reserved the tour that we eat everything except beef. The tour guide took us for lunch and charged us extra 6000₩ for pork.
The tour guide rushed us from place to place because he wanted to take us to duty free shop. Awful!!
Note from Viator: We are sincerely sorry to hear about your frustration with this experience. A visit to a Duty Free store is consistently offered on this tour as a bonus to customers.
