We were met on time and headed out to the fortress, Geanie was a very informative guide, explaining all about the kings and realms of the era. The fortress was huge and quite beautiful, a half day was just the right amount time to explore it. On a Monday there is no performances, however it was still a nice morning. Liz

Some potential in this tour was lost. On arrival, it seemed time was frittered away, waiting for the trolley ride. Leaving aside it was a bit gimmicky, it pointed out and then continued past, without stopping, the most photographic parts of the fortress. That made little sense. The time at the palace for the king's mother was good. The military display at the end was very good but again photographic chances were limited as the guide did not suggest maybe arriving a bit early for more of a front row seat. In the small museum before the palace, we were rushed through to a fine little film. The pace of the tour was wrong. As we had come from Seoul, we had transportation. It could have been incorporated into a better visit to the fortress, certainly earning at minimum another star.

Good Tour! Te fortress is unique as a large part of it includes commercial ad residential areas yet it has maintained its historical imprint!!

This tour was really awesome! I loved the view (even under the rain), the guide had a lot of knowledge and it's a great place to visit alone or with family. Don't miss the show at the end it's fun =) I totally recommend this tour!
