I was the only person who had booked the tour so the tour guide Alan Han gave me a great tour around Deoksugung Palace. He explained the history and the end of the Joseon dynasty. He gave a great insight in to the architecture of the palace, which was very useful when I visited the other palaces like Gyeongbukgung and Chandeokgung palace. The palace was beautifully lit and Alan recommended some K-dramas to watch on Joseon history. All in all an excellent tour.

I highly recommend this tour! The buildings are lit at dusk and evening, in a way that brings out a different kind of beauty. We have done self-guided tours of other palaces, but having a tour guide is so worth it. We arrived a little early, so our tour guide Alan started our tour right away. He was so knowledgeable and patient (our kid asked a million questions) but I came away with new appreciation for Korean history and architecture that I would not have gotten if we did a self-guided tour. Alan also knew the best spots and angles for family photos. Thank you so much, Alan, for a memorable experience of our time in Seoul!
