Morning Walking Tour: Gyeongbokgung Palace and Bukchon Hanok Village
Jack was a good tour guide. He did a great job of directing us through the palace grounds and sharing a good amount of history, but not too much. My favorite thing was that Jack knew the best photo opps and kept stopping to take our picture. That was so appreciated!

Ben was an amazing, informative guide! Our group was small, myself and two others so the tour was intimate and there was plenty of opportunity to ask questions. Ben made us all very comfortable and he was super professional and approachable. I'd 100% recommend this tour to anyone and everyone!
