You’ll travel back to an age of craftsmanship with one of our Seoul hosts as you head north and explore the quaint Bukchon Hanok Village. Not literally travelling back in time, obviously, but it will feel a lot like you have.
Vastly different from the modern interior if Seoul, the hanoks, or small houses, are built in the traditional Korean style.
With elegantly tiled roofs and tiny courtyard gardens, you’ll be utterly transported to another time in whimsical alleyways, popping into cafes, art galleries and craft shops as you navigate the crisscrossing lanes.
Your host will treat you by taking you to the oldest market in the city, where you can browse exquisite silks and sample yummy sweet treats.
As if all of that weren’t enough, the iconic Changdeokgung Palace is just a stone’s throw away, so while you’re in the neighbourhood why not swing by there, too?
Join your host and explore Bukchon Hanok Village, a historic enclave to the north of Seoul
Enjoy the surreal pleasure of exploring a village preserved within the city itself
Discover iconic attractions like Changdeokgung Palace, with the added benefit of your host’s local knowledge and insight

My family and I had a wonderful day with Ben in Seoul. We saw so many places and had so many experiences, we could not possibly have done so well on our own or in a large group. Ben was fun, informative, helpful and obliging. What a great day!
Ben took us to a fantastic restaurant in Gangnam and ordered a huge meal for us. He showed us how to eat the meals and different combinations. He was very nice about taking pictures and showing us around different places and finally took us out to dessert which was amazing. Overall it was a unique experience that I wont forget.
This was a wonderful experience. Our host Ben was excellent and very attentive to our needs. Before the trip the company asked us what we wanted to do and Ben tailored our tour to what we wanted to see. He took us to a local market with no tourists in sight. We had a very local meal which was really nice and then Ben showed us the different things sold at the food market. We then tried several teas and herbal drinks at the K-medicine institute. We finished our tour with a nice relaxing foot bath. It was great and definitely something I would not have been able to do myself. Thanks Ben.
Just because it’s not here doesn’t mean we can’t offer it.
