A good way to visit the temple and the palace as our guide gave us the history of these places.
Floral offerings in the garden made our Jogyesa temple visit very colorful. Guide was cordial starting palace tour at back. Fr. National folk museum,making our way to front of Gyeokbong on time to see the changing of the guard at front gate. But a waste of 1 hour going to Ginseng center.Out of way.
Even though the lady who guided the tour was nice, I have not got a lot of information. It was almost the same if I took the public transport and enter the palace. Just much more cheaper,
Our guide changed the itinerary and had us go to the Zen Buddism temple first instead of last. This made the time left for the rest of the tour short and rushed since we needed to get through the rest of the tour in order to not miss the changing of the guards. It was to be a 3.5 hour tour that at best was squeezed into 2.5 hours
